Have you seen Google Video lately and how just about every other video in the Google Top 100 is about sex or has a sexy woman on it. Then when you click on it you see a nice link to the website in the info field and also the video is watermarked to death with the website aswell. Pretty sweet marketing eh? Damn skippy!. Ever wonder what kind of traffic you can get from being ranked #1 on Google Video by doing a similar tactic?
Well I got a email on friday from a gentleman who calls himself the MusclyJerk.

Subject: No.2 On Google Video Rankings = 3,000+ visits/day
Thought you might find this interesting since I have sort-of ‘gamed’ Google Video and have been sitting at number 2 on their video rankings for 2 days and I’m still there now.
The interesting part is the traffic – as my video moved up in a matter of days (after months of laying dorment) .. traffic from Google Video is now coming in at above 3,000 visitors/day. I could send you screenshots of the analytics and the google video ranking if you’re interested in doing a little blog entry on it.
Take it easy and let me know what you think !
The Muscly Jerk ;o)
I responded and said I would be totally interested in seeing what kind of traffic that would bring and I thought in general people would also. Today he responded saying he now is in the #1 spot and sent along screenshots of his analytics throughout the month.
So you can see from the screenshot above and his video in #1. It shows a smoking hot blonde in a very low cut front shirt with the title of “Hot Girls Answer Every Guys Question”. How frickin nice is that!
Ok but what kind of cheese does it yield?
Ok great so he is getting almost 4k unique per day now that he is at the top spot… what does that really mean? Well I did some research and scraped together some keywords for muscle/health and fitness and just about everything I could find on his page and basically it came to a average of about .27 cents per click. Now depending on his account and quality score that could be higher or lower. So lets play lowball and say it was 20 cents per day at 3500 hits. That means he is saving ATLEAST $700.00 A DAY on Adwords. What about conversions? Well people are only clicking if they are interested in the Muscly Jerk stuff its VERY laid out and the site is just more of the video… hot chicks with buff guys. I would think conversions would be very high. I have emailed him back requesting some actual conversion data but he does not have much to compare it to since he never started getting traffic until this!
Thanks Musclyjerk for sharing your info! Now everyone go sign up for his program and get buff. Yes Neil Patel I am talking about you.
