7 Things Every Entrepreneur Should Consider When Setting Up Social Media Accounts | Social Media for Small Business Owners | Scoop.it

Setting up a new business on social networks takes much more than filling in a form. Lots of the most important aspects are easily overlooked when creating a new business profile or page. Maintaining consistency across the web with your brand’s voice and visual elements is critical for brand recognition. You’ll also need to pay attention to who will run your accounts, and how they’ll do so.

Do YouTube links influence your Google ranking? - Business and Faith

Do YouTube links influence your Google ranking? - Business and Faith | Social Media for Small Business Owners | Scoop.it

I do not 100% agree with this conclusion.  There is way more to increasing Google Ranking than links - and to be honest links do not help that much anymore.  YouTube videos will increase your visibility, traffic, and overall web efforts.
