    Hey, guys, I'm still getting my feet wet with ranking videos. Does a verified channel's videos rank better?

    I don't think so. But, verified accounts are less likely to get manually reviewed (from my experience).

    Its all in an algorithm. YouTube would rather have a more trusted video, from a verified user. This may be a small factor... What really matters is the quality of the video, amount of views, quality and engaging comments, G+ shares, Facebook likes, etc.

    No they don't. That doesn't have any effect at all when trying to rank.

    They don't rank them better, however, verified accounts have a large following and they then get views, likes, comments and are shared by the users, so in turn they would end up ranking better that way. Ranking is algorithm based, can't be changed by a user being verified.
