    A couple of my YT videos are PR 3 and 4. Are there any benefits to be had by this situation?

    Cheers,

    James :)

    James,

    What kind of benefits were you thinking? In general it seems like your video page is popular but I'm not sure there is much you can do with that other than get more exposure for your video.

    Perhaps some others will have some ideas?
    Best,

    Shawn

    They do have over 100k views each. Not sure what benefits could be had. Perhaps ranking in G? I'm no YT expert by a long shot, just throwing it out there and seeing what people may know.

    Best,

    James

    Having 100K views will not rank you on Google directly. If you're wanting to rank it for Google, you'll need social signals, social bookmarks, and backlinks. You can go crazy with the backlinks, there is no 'wrong' doing, so to speak.

    I would say that there is no direct benifit by a video pagerank like more views etc. as pointed out by Shawn.

    However, you may simply use the video's descriptions for some powerful n0-f0llow links (as you probably already do).

    Yeah the links are nofollow, but having a high PR on a YT video is a symbol of quality video, meaning it should come up higher in YT searches for the keywords found in your title and description. And if you're monetizing the video building backlinks to it will help it rank in the engines.

    It's easier to use spam on high PR videos to make them rank for keywords.

    those high PR YT videos are a great way of building up a powerhouse backlink structure to point at your money site. a lot of people don't realize that there is plenty of value in those videos and even though they're nofollow, they still point where you want some value to go.

    For google rankings? Is the consensus to blast the vids with BLs for google rankings - does anyone think this will backfire anytime soon? If I can rank my vid for a few months on google and then it drops cause of spam I'm ok with that

    like with anything, it's how you do it that counts. if you just blast away with backlinks for anything, of course it will backfire. if you structure it smart, you'll be amazed at the results plus it will look very natural.

    Here's another idea - put a link to your website on the youtube video and then use the said video to launder spammy, shitty links.

    Voila - free link juice.

    that was funny and you know someone will do exactly that and then whine that their PR went down suddenly.

    I've come across quite a few YouTube videos that according to Market Samurai had zero back links, but had a PR of 3 or 4 ranking on the first page for some pretty competitive terms in the weight loss niche.

    wouldn't spammy back links hurt your website. I was thinking about putting my website in my video description but was worried about getting penalized by the spam links (i'm going to blast the vid with links)

    I blasted some vids for a test and they got erased from the serps, so try different methods and see what sticks.

    Think of no benefits except focusing on traffic and popularity. For you, its more specifically called "Youtube Views". LOL
