    Hi guys....

    Yesterday I noticed that a guy has put the description of one of my old YT videos in his new channels...

    So I am wondering does both YT & Google rank duplicate content videos? Do I need to do something in this regard?

    Thanks

    I have ranked videos with exact same description. There are various factors that decide the the ranking of video, so he might or might not rank in this case. Though you don't have much to do here, better ignore it.

    Thank you buddy..
    so may I know what are those factors please:)?

    I don't want to do something against him, he is an affiliate like me, if he can rank his video then he deserves to earn money as well, even if he has my optimized description. Just want to see if he can really rank? If he can then I should work more on my video.

    Thanks

    Those may be number of views, likes or backlinks in case of a YT video. That is what used to work for me a year back, when I was doing YT vid for sharecash and amazon products. Nevertheless, the Youtube section is filled with methods to rank.

    Don't forget to use your keywords in your title and tags as well.
