Here comes the Watch Time ranking factor...

Google recently filed for a patent labeled "watch time based ranking." Bill Slawski from SEO by the Sea first noticed this patent and suggests a page could get a boost or demotion based on the amount of time a user spends watching a video on that page.

It sounds like this might be your warning against useless video content that exists for the sake of having it. Is your video content up to snuff?

Watch time / engagement seems to have been Youtube ranking factor for ages... Interesting to see they are trying to apply it to web pages too...
