15 Statistics About Video on the Web
It’s not big news that video is big on the web. Thirty-percent of all US web traffic during peak evening and night hours is from Netflix alone! But videos are big for businesses and marketing as well. You’ve probably noticed more videos on websites and for good reason. Video helps communicate a lot more information and is a powerful marketing medium. And here’s another great reason: video can really help with search engine optimization (SEO).
