    Hi guys,I am wondering if giving backlinks to youtube videos to rank them in Google works yet?I tried to increase the number of backlinks of my YT video form 80 to 150 using GSA SER (its more than 12 days that Ahrefs shows the 70 added backlinks) but I didn't notice any change in the video position in Google. My video was in the second page of google (dancing to the third page sometimes). So I tried to increase the number of its backlinks to bring it in the first page of google, but "Nothing" happens finally.So what's the reason? Does it mean that giving backlinks to the YT videos does not work anymore?Thanks.

    LOL even 5k backlinks isn't enough to rank a decent competition video. Whats your LPM OP ? 0.1?

    Thanks for your input buddy,

    Really? I thought it is "relative".

    Several months ago I brought the video in the second page of G by just 80 backlinks so why it should not rank and move "at all" by 150?
    To be honest Due to Google penalties, I am afraid of generating and giving it thousands of backlinks using GSA SER.

    My LPM is less than 0.1, but why it does matter at all?
    I am using GSA SER just 1-2 hours a day because I am fearful of the G penalty...

    Is it true that you should skip the keyword for which no video is ranking on first page

    Depends from the Backlink's quality. From the PR of this blogs/sites where you put your video's links. Are better 15 PR3 backlinks then 100 PR0 backlinks. So, it's not only backlinks the important thing in your video. You've to consider the content in the description, title and tags.

    Thanks for your input buddy,

    So could you manage to rank any YT video in Google using GSA SER recently? If so can I generate say 1000 backlinks in a week to rank my video or it has this potential to put me in trouble somehow?

    I always adjust GSA SER to put my link and my description in the websites with a page rank of 3 or higher...

    by "tag" do you mean the GSA keywords please?

    It still works but not like before when you just blast GSA links and get instant rank. Try tier link building, lets say T1 with PR3+ T2 Pr1+ and give us feedback here...

    Posting the videos on youtube with relevant keywords is enough. Videos between 5 and 20 minutes duration work better

    haha, that and google won't penalize a YT url(video). If you're so afraid about it, why don't you create a fake account and upload a video there, and create a lot of backlinks to see if you can rank it. This method still works for people who know how to use it and who is better to teach yourself than you. :)
