    I found a keyword typed it in and went to the video section of the results, and there was a video in second position that had 150,000 views above a video of the same topic that had 500,000 views.

    So is it just the number of backlinks that are important?

    Yes you need them. For a niche like that you might need anywhere between 100k-150k retention views to rank on page 1 of youtube.

    A video will not rank on page 1 of Google unless it's on page 1 of YT (95% of the time, there are rare exceptions to this rule).

    So you'd have to blast it with lots of RV's, not get your video banned, and blast it with GSA till it outranks your competitor.

    However, I hate to break it to you but I have a lot of videos like that ranking #1 and nobody (including myself) can outrank them anymore.
    Mainly because retention view suppliers will very likely get your video banned.

    That's why I go after nothing but untapped niches now.

    But what about the fact that a video with less views outranked a video with more views?

    Views are just one piece of the jigsaw. Backlinks are another, so it could be that the video with less views has more backlinks and that's why it's ranking higher.

    Views, backlinks, total video viewed length, likes, dislikes, votes and many more things are part of the youtube algorithm.
