    Hello.
    I'd like to ask a question.. does backlinks help you rank your video in YouTube or only in Google? I hope someone who tried it before (or has experience with SEO) could answer my question!
    Thanks in advance.

    Absolutely.
    A video can rank in google, just as any website can.

    When backlinking - treat it like a tiered property.
    It can handle is little bit more a blast than a money site can, so use that to your advantage

    No they won't as you need views, likes to get ranked in Youtube first page. I had tested this out. I am ranked on first page of google but nowhere on first page of youtube because no views or likes were sent..
    test II was done wherein I built backlinks+sent views and likes and its ranking in top 5 and first page of Google too.

    Yes, I know for sure blog post links and social bookmarks still work for this. Blog Comments used to work and may still work.

    Backlinks are very important in ranking. You'll be pretty hard pressed to have your video ranking in competitive niches without any links.

    Yes it does. You are able to look for videos not only by searching in youtube by them but also on a google search.

    For Google SERPs, yes. For YouTube SERPs, no.

    links go to your google ranking.

    ranking in youtube depens mostly on great stats, internal linking, comments, etc...
