    I'm converting a lot of our website content into videos and I was just wondering if it is still pretty easy to rank YouTube vids in Google SERPs. I know the algo they use internally on YouTube is views/retention/likes/comments but what about videos ranking in the SERPs? Will inexpensive and spammy linkbuilding services work to rank on Google?

    Appreciate any advice/comments on this one.

    Social signals are a much bigger factor in ranking videos on G rather than backlinks. Go for it!

    Hmm, can you elaborate. Social signals are bit harder to fake, at least the way I'm thinking.
