    Hey guys,
    I have a video which was ranking #1 on the first page for a very competitive keyword, it took me one month to get to the first spot, now there's a new video ( 5 days old ) which is the number 1 now and my video is number 2, but he only have 2000 views ( i have 50000 high retention views ) and he got 120 likes ( i have 700 likes ) and only 6 subs ( i have 1200 subs ) my question is : is there any secret sauce for ranking videos fast ?

    even videos with 0 likes and channels with 0 subs can achieve high rankings and even frontage and get on trending section , It really comes down to views retention and the country it targeted .
    That's based on my recent tests.

    Also optimized title is extremely important.

    Check to see if he has any backlinks using ahrefs and check out his tags/keywords. I think geo-targeted views are becoming more and more important now, so send a few of those to your vid along with some more likes/shares and your video should hopefully rank higher.

    Well its pretty simple. Mention the keyword you wanna rank in the title, keep the title 4-5 words long.

    That's especially if you wanna rank for single search keywords.

    It doesnt mean that a video with good views and good likes can rank well, Rather it depends on how well your video is SEO Optimized.

    Agreed. I've got videos ranking with 20,000+ views no likes, subs, and two comments.

    Home Page:
    You have to understand OP that it also depends A LOT on the current social engagement of the Video, by your own admission the Video is 5 Days old and its already got 2,000 Views, 120 likes and 6 Subs, according to YT this Video is currently "Hot" so they ranked it higher than yours.

    On the surface his stats are probably legit (correct me if Im wrong) and doesnt come from Blackhat Methods, Views, likes and Subs are also probably from different locations in the World and not all USA like most peoples videos which would make his Video seem more popular and more socially acceptable.
