    Since ranking new website for high volume search terms is now practically impossible i am wanting to drive traffic through the youtube or facebook page.

    Which one do you think is better to rank in google search results? Youtube video or facebook fanpage?

    Both can rank easily on google. Fanpage is better because youtube videos can be flagged fast for no reason.

    Depending upon niche sometimes fb page gets half clicks compared to a site and only few of them will be transferred to your money site.

    I'm going to go with Facebook on this one, also. Facebook is not nearly as strict as YouTube is, so even if your fanpage is full of hate speeches (which is against Facebook's TOS), they still won't delete it.

    youtube video can get flagged or deleted with boosted fake views and get dislikes
    fanpage can be spammed with negative feedbacks in comments for every status you make
    so both of those can reflect negative results, well at lease that's what i been noticing ^^

    The difference between the two is that with Facebook, you can at least delete the spam or repost the status if you're seeing spam. With YouTube, you cannot delete fake views or dislikes and reuploading the video would just be too much of a hassle.

    You have more control with Facebook than with YouTube.

    cleaning botted none-stooping spam can be also stressfull lets say there's wouldn't be a minute that your page would have no spam (negative feedbacks) even if you block user from page

    sametime in some niches I seen pages without any spam and in other niches they so abused is all depends on your luck of niche

    That is certainly a valid reason for not choosing Facebook! Maybe the OP should just run tests with both of them for a month and then determine which one will perform better overall (like ad rotation in PPC advertising).

    can get costly really quick unless you have dip packets to try all the tactics I wouldn't suggest it perhaps hire professional would be more smart to do so

    likes and shares actually only gone a boost the page rankings but reporting content will help in order to take it down
    but whats worst is auto-spam in comments of statuses as I mentioned early
