    I've asked this before, but do social signals actually work for Youtube videos (or even your own website for that matter)? I think the last time I asked this I was told that it doesn't do anything and that it's just a misconception by some people and that's it's no-follow so don't bother.

    The reason I'm asking now is because I'm seeing more and more people talking about it.

    Social signals are very important for establishing trust to a property. It looks odd for a property to procure links but no social interaction in 2014.

    Dont think it works because youtube is a signal , its likes etc are giving out a SIGNAL, like FB, and Twitter. to the url associated with it.

    But does it actually help with SEO? Or what does it do exactly?

    Yes, they do. They work great combined with YT views/Likes.
