    Back about a couple years ago in my early IM days I would just create a vid on YouTube that used a long tail keyword and about half of them would just happen to rank and get lots of traffic a lot from within YouTube but now when I do the same thing I don't get any traffic. If I added likes and comments would my vids gain rankings and traffic? It seems thats all people say but is it really that simple for longtail keywords?

    "normal" ration between views/likes/favorites.

    a 10000000 views video with 25 likes means... cheat. you got the point.

    also now views need to cover around the half time of the video or more. they stated it in the youtube partner blog.

    good luck

    full time video views. You have to promote yourself on a website or a blog, Good keyword research, good content and you gotta make sure that you engage your audience and try to provide something free and useful so you get shares and subscribers

    30 second views...if some one got 1 minute lenght,,i think it easy for them to out rank you or you have difficulty to out rank them even in serp.

    test anything and everything and be sure to know exactly what all you have tested. Then and only then will you know how to rank YouTube videos. :)

    I do TONS of various tests on the simplest of things for ranking yt videos to see what all works and doesn't.

    Come up with a catchy title (if possible include your target keywords), and share your video via social bookmarking and networking sites...
