Before I ask my question, I want to clarify this is about ranking a Youtube video in Google's serps, not Youtubes. Now, we are clear on that. I am trying to rank a Youtube video on Google's serps, but I can't get the video to budge. I have been building quality backlinks from the BST. I read somewhere that if Google does NOT have any videos on the front page for a particular keyword, you won't be able to rank Youtube videos there, no matter how many backlinks you get. From what I understand that Google reserves a certain section on page 1, IF, having videos make sense for the keywords. Can anyone confirm or deny this happens? Has anyone got a Youtube video on page 1 for a keyword without any videos present?
