Video content is super popular today.
In fact, internet users spend an average of 6 hours and 48 minutes watching videos per week.
That’s a 59% increase since 2016!
What’s more, users spend on average 2.6x more time on pages with video than without.
So, why not spice up your blog with engaging, relevant videos? The good news is there are tons of search engines you can use to find the perfect video to use in your blog or inspire you to create your own.
Here’s a list of the 10 best ones out there.
1. Google Video Search
We can’t leave Google out, although everyone online knows about it. It’s just too big and popular to scratch from our list.
So, what’s special about Google videos?
You can search for practically any video on Google using the Videos search bar.
First, type in your keyword on Google.
2. YouTube Video Search
YouTube is the second most-visited site in the world (next to Google).
And it’s no wonder, since over 500 hours of video are uploaded on YouTube per minute!
Here’s an example of a search on YouTube for “WordPress Plugins.”
If you’re feeling uninspired for your next video, head over to YouTube and type in a rare keyword.
Chances are, you’ll find a unique video on it.
3. Bing Video Search
If you’re like a ton of other people, you think of Bing as a search engine “living in the shadow of Google.”
But Bing isn’t inferior to Google, it’s just different.
For example, there’s its video platform.
Here are three amazing things you didn’t know about Bing videos:
- They’re optimized for mobile usage.
- They play directly from the website.
- You can easily find paid video content.
Finding inspiring videos on Bing is super easy.
Simply type your keyword into the search engine and select Videos.
Dailymotion is a platform with millions of videos.
Right on its homepage, you can watch trending videos on the latest news, entertainment, music, and sports.
Looking for something specific?
Head over to the search bar on the right-hand corner and type in your keyword.
If privacy is important to you and you don’t like the idea of everything you do online being recorded, you should use DuckDuckGo.
DuckDuckGo does three things for you:
- Blocks trackers.
- Allows you to search privately.
- Gives you secure connections.
Using the search engine is super easy because of its simple interface.
If you’re looking for videos, simply type in your keyword into the search field and click Videos.
Another fun thing you can do is run a search based on different countries.
You’ll be thrilled to find out that selecting a different country gives you different video results!
For example, here are the top videos for the keyword “content marketing” in the U.S.
However, just like other search engines, Yahoo makes it super easy to browse through tons of videos.
What’s interesting is that although Bing powers Yahoo’s search results, you won’t get the same video results if you enter the same keyword on both platforms.
Let’s take a look.
