    Are YouTube videos easier to rank than websites?
    And how hard can you hit them with backlinks after Penguin 2.1?

    yes 100% easier to rank than website, as youtube is owned by Google and Google always rank its website on number one either thats youtube or blogger etc...

    in a short term , YES

    in a long term, No

    this means that if u build a website for a specific niche and start ranking for these keywords related to your niche u will end up ranking higher than ur video (this is called authority, but this takes times)

    in a short term , youtube videos are easier and faster to rank

    Not just YouTube but any site like WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, etc, are going to be easier because they have authority.

    youtube videos are definitely easy to rank with correct variation of backlinks along with retention views. But, having a website is much helper for you in long run.

    youtube easy rank 100x faster than wordpress site
    youtube is google product, so is very easy to ranks.
    but youtube also easy removed your video.
    i thinks, if youhave planing youtube marketing, you must create unique video not spamming video :D

    they are easier BUT.. they dont convert as well. actually they dont convet in loads of niches/keywords.
    i hadtop3 in keywords worth 2k$ a day and made.. ZERO.

    so even with ranking them u may do nothing.

    Dont know
    The reason why YouTube videos is easier to rank is because you can target your keyword more aggressively without worrying about getting penalized and YouTube authority. The bad part about it is that your competition can easily wipe you out the serps by flagging your videos down.
