    I am attempting to rank a simple youtube video for a fairly non-competitive local keyword but I can't seem to get it past the 1st page. I have trying for a little more than 2 and a half months now.

    I feel like I have done everything correctly.. Good KW placement, proper tags, tagged it on the map.

    Does anyone have any advice on youtube video optimization? Any good articles to point me to?

    Thanks.

    You need something else than just video optimalization. You need backlinks, views and social signals. Add some views, social bookmarks, likes and comments and you should see positive movement.

    Yes, of course, I have been doing back linking... Good back linking too! I will add more views and see if that does anything. Thanks!

    Have you sent some good quality views to the video? That always helps mine. I'll then hit it with some likes, comments, subscribers. Make it look natural.

    Do you have ahrefs account? If yes, check backlinks profile and anchor text variation of competitors videos. I analyze the pattern and do needful to rank my videos.

    Dude go grab an Scrapebox autoapprove url list from the forums and comment spam the video url, it being Youtube you should be just fine in avoiding the sandbox.
