    Do backlinks actually play a part in ranking videos?

    I've been able to rank vids on page one very easily in the past, but now I'm going after more competitive terms and it's taking longer to get on page one.

    Anyway, my question is, should I even bother backlinking my YouTube videos or should I just work on increasing views, getting votes, etc...?

    +1 for any help!

    This is a really stupid question, but could you point me to a link that details the methods of ranking with a video?

    Instead of asking this question, why don't you just try it out. Get a scrapebox blast from fiverr for $5 to 1 or 2 videos of your choice and monitor the rise in serps.

    I have seen too many people asking the same thing at BHW currently, guys please try some methods out yourself first and then come back with some solid data or case study to actually add to the value of the forum instead of making this a Yahoo Answers clone.
