    Hello, I am new to IM and a complete noob, I want to know how to rank YouTube videos on Google search easily. The keyword I'm targeting isn't very competitive so I guess it should be easy. I tried searching BHW but did not get a clear picture on what has to be done. Can any of you give me a step by step method so that I can understand it properly. Thanks a lot :)

    Deadlydezyn,

    That's a great question!

    There are a few things you can do to optimize your video for search engines. Use your target keywords in the title and description of the video. Choose an appropriate category for your video or the closest one if it doesn't fit neatly into pre-populated categories. One thing a lot of people miss is having the file name of their video be the targeted keyword or keyword phrase. So if your video is about how to fix a car and your target keyword phrase is car repair tips, an appropriate file name might be CarRepairTips.mov or Car_Repair_Tips.mov. Also, include your targeted keywords as well as other relevant keywords as tags for the video.

    One tactic that may take some more time is generating backlinks to the video or having it embedded on other sites. If you own or manage web properties where the video would be relevant (such as a personal blog or Facebook page), embed the video on those sites immediately. Uploading your video file to other video sharing websites such as Vimeo, Daily Motion, or Veoh and using your target keywords in tags, descriptions and titles on those sites will help increase its visibility.

    I basically make sure the title is keyword friendly, the description is keyword friendly, send bookmarks to it. then buy high retention views, likes, comments. having good quality content is important, then it will naturally be shared and liked. theres a ton of good posts about it you can search in google "site:blackhatworld.com raking youtube"

    Well given the Youtube "on-page" stuff are covered as some of the members suggested above, simply build more links to the video on a mass scale - this works pretty amazingly as Youtube is a high authority site and the big G loves it. Done it few times myself for clients.

    Good luck!

    thecontentauthority gave some really great tips that work. I always use vagex to get the ball rolling too. No more than 1k views and few rounds of likes should do the trick. I have had videos rank on the first page of google in under 4 hours before.

    Does your video promote a business that's trying to generate clients? If so, you can increase traffic to your video by using Google Adwords. Google calls Adwords for video "TrueView."
