    Hi guys,
    I know this topic is hot and a lot is being discussed lately after the latest Google updates. I read almost each and every thread related to this and I want to start using these techniques to rank my videos in Google SERPs. The reason for this trhead is because I still didn't find someone sharing a successful journey using these resources, or a product to buy and learn how to do these things, so I would like to discuss it publicly with all of you. For my education and for everyone that is seeking the same information.

    I am still a bit confused about how social signals improve rankings, and I just want to learn how to use each service to my advantage in my videos. Is there a blueprint around with this information?

    My main questions to start the discussion:
    1) using Facebook, how do I work with a video? I share it on related FB Pages and that's it?
    2) using Twitter, I tweet my video to my followers and that's it?
    3) Do I need to purchase fiverr gigs to blast likes, retweets, repins, etc. Is this mandatory for social signals in google ranking?

    I hope this helps, not only me but everyone interested, all your sharing will be much appreciated.
    Kind regards,
    Marce

    Not to say that social signals don't have some importance, and they'll probably gain in importance in the future to a certain extent, but they're not mandatory by any stretch of the imagination. I rank in super competitive commercial fields just by getting high quality d0follow links with good anchor text, with no social signals whatsoever. Social signals are really just icing on the cake.

    Backlinks have so much more weight when it comes to ranking a site than social signals do. I'm not saying social signals can't help (though in my case they haven't), but every resource tells us that backlinks are #1 and while social signals may become more important later right now they seem pretty unreliable.

    I've experimented with a brand new site recently. It was up for a week, I posted links on a few dozen aged twitter accounts with a few k followers each and a day later had a whole bunch of se traffic coming in.. Some may say it was a coincidence but my experience can't allow me to think it was.

    Guys hes asking about videos not website ranking.
    I also want to know this ive been hearing about people ranking their youtube videos with social signals ... its supposed to make your video seem like it when viral.
    I bought a gig for one of my cb videos the work was delivered today and curios enough i got a sale today. ill tell you what ive learned so far ive been analysing videos ranked on google and found that some have good amounts of backlinks ... comments likes and such. im thinking that with good anchor and backlinks you can rank. unfortunately i can't prove that because i ran out of the $ but ill tell you what happens
