The exact question was:

When building Youtube Silos how many videos should be in the silo to be impactful, to move the needle. I know it depends on competition, but what should you start with? 5, 7, 50? And should we focus on building more in the silo or more silos, and if more silos, how many in the silo? Thanks in advance.

How Do You Get Google To Update The Requests You Made In A YouTube Channel Quickly?

By April

 

In episode 295 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked how to get Google to update the requests you made in a YouTube channel quickly.

The exact question was:

I have a generically branded YouTube channel with some lead gen videos that I had been using for a client but unfortunately, an unforeseen life forced him to have to cancel his services. I purposely put his contact info at the top of the description in YouTube so it would show in the search results, which of course I changed once he was no longer a client. But Google is refusing to update the search results and as a result my former client is getting free advertising and I cannot pass the videos along to a new client because of this. Got any ninja tricks to get Google to update this quicker?

Do You Recommend Using All URL Versions Of A YouTube Video For Syndication And Link Building?

By April

 

In episode 251 of the weekly Hump Day Hangouts by Semantic Mastery, one viewer asked if the team recommends using all URL versions of a YouTube video for syndication and link building.

The exact question was:

Hope this is the right place to ask. Just getting started and have a question about YouTube video URLs for syndication, backlinking, and use in drive stacks. For each YT video, do you recommend using all version: long and short urls, plus the long and short playlist URL versions of each video in playlists? Also, if you are constantly adding new videos to playlists and rearranging the order, does that break those previously used long and short video URLs? If changes screws them up, then where should they be used and not be used so as not to create playlist video URL problems down the road? Thanks
