    Hey guys,

    I have a small problem. I've been working on a niche of mine for a few months now and I've stabilized at #1 for google sites.
    I might be #1 sitewise, but it shows two youtube videos as results before my site, how would I outrank them ? I've had a steady linkflow for months now and it's stable in all search engines from google to yahoo yet I cannot pass the damn videos in google.

    What should I do to outrank these videos ?

    Maybe this is a dumb idea, but can you make similar, but better Youtube videos that may outrank those over time?

    I've tried, I managed to get a video #1 in youtube for the keyword and it remained there for a month until it got taken down but the google video results did not update at all

    I use YT videos quite often to rank keywords/websites and haven't had many problems.

    So why was your video taken down?

    Here are a few tips to rank your video if you haven't already done this.

    1. Name the video file using your main keyword

    2. Write a video description with your main keyword sprinkled throughout the body. You should also have
    a few other keywords included to make it look natural

    3. Try not to use copyright material. You know what can happen if you do. If the owner complains then YT will
    of course take down the video

    4. Ping and bookmark your video after upload

    These tips should help you to maintain good video rank.

    Continue building quality links is the only real answer.

    Maybe try building more social signal type links to compete against the videos.

    I will suggest you, you can optimize your youtube video along with keyword and if possible to add video with site that's good, some tips here Optimize with keywords, Distribute videos on video-sharing sites, Implement a linking strategy, Encourage viewers to share your videos.

    I've been doing quality links from every category for the past month, along with just social bookmarks and stuff like that but with no success..

    I said social signals not social bookmarks.. although bookmarks should probably still be in the mix

    If videos from youtube over rank you, it means you don't have STRONG backlinks.
    Take few good guest posts on hight PR blogs and you will kick them off.
