Does posting YouTube videos increase website traffic?

I've heard recently that posting 5-10 YouTube videos with links to your website, and also embedding them within your blog can help increase traffic to your website.

Is this a good strategy, and what success have you seen doing this?

I'd love to hear your experience.

Many thanks for all imput! 📝 👍 😎

One thing about related embedded videos is that they will not only increase your traffic, but they will also decrease the bounce rate. It takes time to watch a video and most people watch at least a couple of minutes. A decreasing bounce rate makes google search engines happy..

Hey Colin,

If you optimize your YouTube videos and embed them in relevant posts, yes, they definitely will help to increase your organic traffic.

But, if you are asking if simply embedding other's YouTube videos on your posts will help to increase organic traffic, that would depend on the topic you've chosen and the details in which you have provided, then the embedded video that belongs to someone else MIGHT help.

I tend to use other's YouTube videos to help keep my visitors on my posts longer rather than helping to increase traffic.

Hope you find this helpful.
