    Google owns YouTube, therefore videos which rank highly on YouTube search also tend to rank well on Google Search by default. Sometimes my videos that I've ranked number 1 for some keywords on YouTube also rank very well on Google even without backlinks.
    My advice: You need to first work on your YouTube ranking, which is affected by things like channel authority, video popularity, audience retention and user engagement, and when it is decent enough you can work on the Google part using backlinks, social media shares etc.

    I dont need to rank on google now...

    Ok channel authority i understand... number of videos + subscribers and other factors..... i have 12 videos and 2k subscribers (boosted with addmefast).

    How i get video popularity? For get views i think the best way fast is buying hr views...

    Audience retention = High retention views?

    What is user engagement?

    Thanks for help!

    I would not buy HR views for a white hat channel . The risk is too high as YT is lately keeping and eye on bought hits. Use HR for the typical channel that cointains 1 video with cpa or low quality content but not for your main account.

    What about the subscribers numbers of your competitors ? Huge ?

    Do the basic things right like keywords, description, tags and thumbnails.

    Look for the other relevant keywords and try to rank on them.
