Adding a video in the search engine marketing builds up your personal brand. 94% of most of the online users click on the first page of the search results and unless there is an intense research over a product or service rest 6% click on the second page. Most of the users if they don’t find the search results on the first page matching their keywords they tend to add new keywords on the search box to get the final results; these users do not even attempt to click on the second page of the search results.

      Definitely adding video(s) to the search engine will bring more value and branding as it is very catchy and goes viral, once it becomes a hit. “Seeing is believing” is the order of the day.
