In episode 121 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked whether adding links to similar videos and Google documents in the description of a video will help it rank.
The exact question was:
Hi Guys, I have a question about ranking videos and links. I've seen a strategy where you create say 300 unique videos, optimize them and create a playlist. In the description of each video there is a link to the previous video and unique Google shortened link all pointing to a Google Doc. In the Doc there is one anchor text link pointing to a website. 5 videos are uploaded each day until the end of the campaign. In your opinion would this be a good strategy to increase the rankings for a website and also could this be used to point the Link in the Doc to a video playlist to rank videos?
