    Can someone explain to me the factors behind how SEO works, because I just don't get it.

    There are two videos on the first page of google for my keyword. They are poorly optimized for the keyword, and literally has only one backlink. I created a youtube video to take their spots. Submitted it to 10 different sites.

    I checked Market Samurai, and literally, I have everything that they have, plus my title, descriptions, keywords, and more are better optimized, plus I have 10 times more backlinks, and they are still beating me.

    I don't think I'll ever get SEO...

    The domain age or my video's age? My video was made 4 days ago.

    No, it's gotten crappy views because it's not on the first page of google:) Catch-22...

    If views are so important, then why do all the guru swear on their unborn children that you can rank youtube videos? I've read many ebooks that point to the fact that youtube videos have weak backlinks and that you can just create a video and take that spot with some link building.

    So they were lying through their teeth?

    The videos your trying to beat, a video made awhile back with a lot of views and popularity is possible to beat but its going to be harder. Same thing with articles, I've seen ezine ranking first with hardly any backlinks, but a few years old with a shit ton of hits, it was beating sites with lots of backlinks.
