    OKAY SO, The way I worded it was very bad, but I do not know the 'term' for it. I am very curious on how I can get my video to the front page of a certain search term(s). I am currently on page 5, and want page 1. How does one achieve this? Once again, I apologize for being really new to the game. :/

    Based on priority:
    1) High retention views (over 10K should be enough)
    2) Optimized title, tags and description

    That's basically it. Likes & comments only helps with conversion. I've seen people rank number 1 for months with a few likes and comments (sometimes none at all)

    I find social signals to be useless too.

    You need to make sure you have the following:

    High Retention Youtube Views
    Appropriate Like:View Ratio
    Optimized title, tags, etc
    Backlinks (niches with competition)
    Good Number of Subscribers

    These are all basic necessitates to rank on Youtube. Of course, it depends on what your competitors videos are like. You want to match their stats, but add a bit more!
