Most read for the week is Jeremy's The Future Of "Online" Video, From Someone Who Should Know. Just who is that someone? Go read the article and find out.

After that was Mark's Viddler SEO article which was original Viddler is bad for Website video SEO, but they then hooked up and Mark gave them the 411 so that's fixed and now the article is UPDATED – Why Viddler WAS Bad For Website Video SEO.

Next most read for the week was from Murdicooooooo!

Video SEO

Sounds highly questionable – 99moves Video SEO Delivers Optimum Results. Why do I say that? Because of this, "…promises to maximise marketing reach and deliver the number 1 spot on all search engines with its revolutionary online video marketing product…" I'm sure Mark will have something to say on that, but I seem to recall Google just saying no one can guarantee a number one spot.

Video Sharing

Kadoo Engages Mediafly to Bring Private Video Sharing to TV, Smartphones, and Tablets

Viacom Set to Appeal in YouTube Case reported by FOX News.Viacom said a new wave of digital piracy could threaten the US media business unless federal courts overturn its defeat in a copyright infringement lawsuit against Google's YouTube video sharing site. Google's reply?
A Google spokeswoman said in a statement: "We regret that Viacom continues to drag out this case. The court here, like every other court to have considered the issue, correctly ruled that the law protects online services like YouTube, which remove content when notified by the copyright holder that it is unauthorized. We will strongly defend the court's decision on appeal."

Not video related, but huge news

New Bacteria Widens Search For Extraterrestrial Life . Basically it goes a long way towards showing the diversity of life as it uses Arsenic in its DNA (where everything else we know uses Phosphorous). Mark and I both studied Biology, so this is super cool. Way to go NASA. The bacteria was found in Mono Lake, California. A very cool place, I've been there. The water has three times more salt than the ocean. Yes, this bacteria uses something that is poisonous to you and I. The team of scientists led by Felisa Wolfe-Simon of the NASA Astrobiology Institute in Menlo Park, California. I am an Astrobiology Academy Alum so this makes me proud.

    Here's all Ill say about 99moves as I really cant comment on their services since I just heard about them –> Their tagline is "Number 1 in Video SEO" and here's the catch… They arent #1 anywhere for "video SEO", BUTT (purposely 2 T's since Im feeling silly) – they are #1 for "Number 1 in Video SEO". So, maybe their tagline should be "Number 1 in Number 1 for Video SEO," Of course, then they would likely be #1 again for that since no one would ever optimize for that. And so on and so on. There is an easy way to fix that, but I won't be mean. – hehe… ok, maybe I will. Hint – Chris, want to write a post titled "Number 1 in Video SEO?" HAHA. funny cause you're probably the only one who will read these comments anyways…

    But really, but to address your note – Unless 99moves is owned by Google (folks – theyre NOT), there is absolutely no way to guarantee 1st position ranking. That being said, it is sometimes easy to get first page rankings – and completely depends on what keyword you are talking about. For example – CHRIS, check it out – I just made our video with Nalts rank #1 on YouTube for ""babies work really well""… Woo Hoo! hahaha. im cracking myself up. that's probably enough.

    >> "Baharat Book Bureau put out Online Video Advertising and Media Spending trends. It’s 137 pages, that’s pretty massive."I took a look at this, and the report costs US$ 2500!!!! Why is this so expensive? Is there another way to get hold of the report? I'm really interested in reading it.

    • http://www.gamersdailynews.com Christophor Rick

      Yeah damned greedy writers wanting to be paid for their time and…hey wait, I'M A WRITER! ;)

      It is 137 pages after all heh. Maybe we make Mark pay for it and then we'll write a year of articles on it…Even then, it's pricey heh. ;)
