    I found this video ranking on 1. page of google and YT for keyword "potty training" (361 000 results in YT).

    youtu(.)be/72KeBje1bRk

    After closer look, this video has:
    • 3,4k views (not even high retention - about 60%)
    • 0 comments
    • 32 subs
    • 35 backlinks
    • no socials

    Can anyone please explain how this video made it to the first page? This seems to break all rules about " YT ranking guides/threads" ... or am I missing something?

    I checked a few of the other videos and it seems that this one was categorized as:
    Category: Howto & Style

    The others weren't in the Howto section, maybe that has something to do with it. Because seeing as it's only got 1 Google +1 (and no other socials) there's no way it should rank than well.
    Maybe Matt Cutts +1'd it. :p

    By 'paratube', do you mean activity on different video-tube sites?

    Best regards

    1) Main keyword appears twice in title
    2) His second video has 87k views.
