    Comments absolutely affects your ranking. Youtube has lists for most viewed, most discussed (comments), etc, so the more you have of everything (views, likes, faves, comments), the better your ranking.

    Yes. I remember back when comment spamming was more popular, one of the big channels that uploads movie trailers decided to disable comments on a lot of their videos. That didn't last long because their videos became less popular.
