Google: Embedding YouTube Videos Doesn’t Help With Search Rankings

John Mueller of Google had to say in a Google Webmaster Help thread that adding a YouTube video to your page will not make the page high quality by itself. Videos from YouTube on your pages won’t give you a ranking boost or show Google that the page is higher quality.

John wrote “A YouTube video alone doesn’t make a page high-quality :), but you can certainly use videos as a way of providing more information to users.”
