    Hi, My youtube #1 competitor is making me wonder how the hell he/she did it?
    My video is new and is on page 1 already. It is the 6th video. I analysed the video and it has less views, the description is short and only mentions the keyword once. It is in a foreign language, and I have more likes and comments than he/she/it does.

    How have I not beat him/she/it yet? I drip fed some social signals and my vid is still stuck at 6th position, it didnt even budge. One of my videos actually dropped ranks. From 6th to 7th.

    What am I doing wrong that my competitor is doing right? Is it possible that their channel has something to do with the video's rankings? Or the age of the video has something to do with it? The video has 1 backlink from dictionary.com.

    Someone please help me.

    Thanks

    Are you talking about ranking on Google or Youtube?

    I'm pretty sure youtube rankings also depend on the number of subscribers and age of your youtube channel. I out ranked videos easily with my old old sign in I used to use years ago. Maybe try a fiverr gig for some subscribers and see if it helps?

    What's the age of your competitor's video? Plus is the channel itself strong? These two factors hugely affect YT rankings.

    Channel subscribers are definitely a factor in your videos ranking on either Google or within Youtube. They are dirt cheap to buy.
