I’ve started to get the first video search referrals via Yahoo!/AltaVista to my personal, family blog (where I posted videos of my son soon after he was born). Kind of creepy, in a way, because although I expect text to be indexed, I hadn’t realized video of my son would be “out there” in quite the same way. Such are the internets, I suppose. Most of the more recent stuff is going up via VideoEgg or YouTube. Not sure how that’ll be indexed, or if it will be, since it lives more on other people’s servers (OPS).
Anyway, the search term that’s sending folks my way is “first bath,” and here’s the video detail page about the content in question. Kind of cool to see video search delivering appropriate traffic, without any metadata. (While the text linking to that video says “getting a bath” the word “first” surrounds it pretty closely in other videos titled “first minutes”.)
UPDATE: Fixed the link to the video detail page. I guess I sort of gave away that I was posting this at the same time as I was shopping for a flame thrower for the garden. (We bought it, too, and it is very cool.)
