Every so often, I like to go on Facebook and look at all the people that are posting a video of themselves playing Zynga Free Chips. It’s an absolutely ridiculous video, and anyone who’s not trying to get their website ranked by beating other sites is going to have some serious competition. But hey, I enjoy it, so I thought I’d take a moment to explain.
First of all, the actual Zynga Free Chips video was put up as a mock promotion for a Google AdWords campaign. And yes, this is exactly what the video is doing, that is, it’s purposely competing with other websites.
Of course, I’m a little bit amazed that there are a lot of people out there who think they’re making money from advertising when they can actually make a lot more money just by creating a great video? But hey, it’s funny, and that’s about the only thing it’s doing for me right now.
The point of the video is to use the name “Zynga” in the title and description of the video. In fact, I know for a fact that Zynga’s been using this exact same trick for years, as I’ve personally seen them do it quite a few times over. The only problem with this is that the video is the same identical video from the last year or two.
Now, this is the problem with using the same video over, since it’s most likely just a different company making it. It’s the same people, playing the same game, just in a different country or region. That’s not a bad thing, but I’m here to tell you that you are definitely not going to make any money with this particular video.
Second, you’re not going to find any rank increase either. That’s because the only way to really get a ranking boost on these types of websites is to add your links to the website. By the way, I’m pretty sure they don’t have any links of their own, as you can tell by the image above.
This is another one of those situations where the video doesn’t have a real purpose other than to get clicks and rank, and that’s it. The point of the video is to try and get clicks, that’s why the titles and descriptions are so long.
There is a different game, and even the name change. It seems like the original game got axed, which really isn’t a good thing. You’ll get top page rankings, and a potential for some rankings, but the difference is the name.
The new name was introduced a few months ago, and it’s still not even close to anything of substance. If you’re looking for a Zynga ranking boost, this won’t help you at all.
One thing you might want to consider is actually trying to rank with the top pages in the industry, which is going to take two-week investment. But if you want to see results, then this might be something to consider.
Overall, this video is completely ridiculous. You can’t rank on these sites, you can’t make any money, and you can’t really see any improvement.
This is not a marketing video, it’s just a video for a promotional campaign. And that’s all it is. Don’t waste your time with it.
