    Hi guys,

    I would like to ask you for your assistance here.
    I am fighting against a couple of links that are standing in #1 before mine, and I just cannot get a higher ranking, no matter what strategies I try (and believe me, I tried a lot).

    These links are YT Videos, competing for low competitive keywords (the usual product promotion stuff).

    I have a few doubts about reverse engineering. I entered this link in ahrefs and the statistics say this link has less than 200 backlinks, and more than 50 Referring Domains.

    My link has way more than 200 backlinks, but less than 10 referring domains, and I still couldn't outrank his video. I am guessing this is where my problem is standing.

    Is there a way to know how is this guy applying his strategy to gather so many referrers to his video? What could I do to keep working on my video to outrank his? I purchased backlinks, I used SER Search Engine Ranker to blast the link with several backlinking methods, I worked with some social proof, retweeting, liking the video, subs, favs, comments, views, ettttcccc. and I am running out of ideas. I can't figure what I am missing here to keep my video ranking better and it is driving me crazy haha.

    Any ideas will be much appreciated.
    Thanks in advance!
    Marce

    Nah I will not do that, my ethical mind prevents me to do that.
    I want to learn in this process, so if I can outrank him with a specific strategy, that meant I learned new ways to rank higher in SERPS :)

    Ideas anyone?

    @OP, I can easily help you. Using shitty links isn't what you need. I can rank YT vids top of Google in a few days to 2 weeks depending on competition.

    What you need is high PR links which I can provide you with for a fee of course. Anyways, HMU if you're looking for a "hired gun" ;)

    Go to ahrefs, export external URLs, run them through scrapebox just to make sure they actually links to his site, then run them through PR checker, sort them and start with the highest PR one and try to get links from there (or get his taken down)

    I actually want to learn to do this stuff myself, not to start selling my services, but just for education purposes. I already coded a piece of software to bookmark links in the most relevant High PR bookmarking sites (didn't use it for this particular YT Video, because of a case study I am performing with it), but I have the doubt if I should need to place the link in other places as well, article directories, blogs perhaps?
    And should these links be all do-follow? does this apply specifically for YT Videos as well in Google?
