Ok, I have come up with this trick and method a while back and decided to share it here, step by step. It was first published in my blackhat blog here (in Hebrew): http://www.black-jack.co.il/does-google-plus-affect-rankings/ Preliminaries: 1. The purpose of this method is to rank youtube videos in Google serps as fast as possible. 2. it uses a blackhat technique named: "clickjacking" where here it refers to clickjacking of the Google plus button. 3. the outcomes of this method are extreme change in rankings - a week to first page Method: well, it is important to note that there is no google plus button for Youtube videos since the button is rendered after page load - i.e. you put the Google plus button code in your website and after page load the button appears, pointing to the current url to plus. So... I had to apply a unique button myself. How? well, after page load, if you use firebug for example you'll see the iframe code of the Google plus button. the code looks like this: Code: <iframe frameborder="0" src="https://plusone.google.com/_/+1/fastbutton?bsv=pr&annotation=none&hl=en&count=true&url=[COLOR=#ff0000][B]http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DKUPVF0_3_lo[/B][/COLOR]" style="width: 40px; height: 28px;"></iframe> take a look at the bold and red-colored part of the code which represents the youtube url to plus. you grab this iframe code, change the url to a youtube url you would like to gain pluses in favor of Google serps ranking, and paste the code in your website or apply clickjacking on it. My outcomes: After a week and lots of pluses (been generated by a clickjacking campaign I initiated in order to gain as many real pluses as possible), all the youtube videos I had manipulated, showed extreme rankings improvement. here, take a look at the results: So...if you can get lots of Google pluses to your Youtube videos, rankings for them will improve significantly at Google. It seems Google has not found out yet. Moreover, I have tried this manipulation on non-youtube videos, they didn't move an inch (well, daa!). I'll hope you'll find it useful.
