    I haven't really used YT in a while now, but a video I put up a few months back started ranking on first page for a keyword in it and I did nothing to get it there. So now I'm interested in YT again, what are some of the on-page SEO tips that still work currently for videos?

    A couple of these videos that took off, had very little likes/favs/comments actually one still to this day only has 5 likes. By the way I'm not even thinking about ranking in the YT search engine I'm just thinking about the videos on Google first page, but if they do rank good in YT that is a plus.

    I have heard people say that if you see a YT video on Googles first page for your keyword you should just forget about ranking a YT vid on the same keyword is because Google only likes to generally have 1 YT video on the same first page, that true? But would it be possible to outrank the existing YT video with your own YT video and then get on the first page?
