Written by Phil Nottingham - There’s no getting around it – video files are big. So big, in fact, that they accounted for 81% of internet traffic in 2021.

Many topics are highjacked by high-paying ad buyers and companies with big budgets to write over-optimized SEO content at the expense of readability and user experience.
