    New songs come out everyday and I would like to use this as a traffic source.

    I have uploaded previous songs that ranked on the first page but when I use the same tactics to try rank on the first page for another song it doesn't work.

    How can I get mine on the first page? are there any sure fire ways?

    Repost copies of the song that are not the original. They usually don't have the original music video but they are are the exact same song and rank well anyway. Notice what they leave out of the original video to survive and you can start being the first to do it. You can earn as you learn by being a copy cat. Worst that can happen is they remove the video or your account if you do this with a lot of videos.

    I try to upload as soon as possible but when I get there most likely there is already enough videos for that song to fill up the first page and mine never get noticed lol

    What do you mean repost copies that aren't the original? I use a pitch bender to bypass copyright

    good question,you want to make sure you are the first one to upload a video or lyrics on that song...how do you do this? by going to some of the top lyrics website,you will see new lyrics submitted,you simply go to youtube and see if anyone has upload a video on that lyric yett.IF you see a cople videos and were only upload 3-7 days ago you can still upload a video....build backlinks to your video using Vagex and use the reply with video feature with some hott videos to get more views and possible get pushed up on page one..

    If this helps plz hit the Thanks button

    I guess if pitch bender was working well you wouldn't have started this thread right. Try repost songs where the visuals of the videos have be edited out and sometimes replace by slideshows and lyrics. There will be a number of these. Piggyback on the largest one.

    Meanwhile, daintyg ^ also showed how to do what they do first so now hit em from both angles.

    Thanked... Never knew that building backlinks for a video actually brung it up higher in rankings.

    the video getting taken down isn't the problem its just getting on the first page but yea your info has helped alot...so your saying basically use the tags and title from the largest one?

    Here's what I've learned about youtube ranking optimization or ranking higher on youtube itself:

    The youtube search engine uses three basic items to initially rank your video:

    • The title of your video
    • The description of your video
    • The tags that you assign to your video

    It can't actually "read" what's in the video itself so it relies on you to give it clues as to what the video is about.

    That means all you really have to do to get started with your Youtube Ranking Optimization is to include your primary keyword phrase in the title, description and tags of each video.

    Be sure to create unique titles, descriptions and tag sets for each video, even if they are similar in nature; doing so will create "unique" content for the other engines to find, and help you create "long tail" phrases that occur naturally in your writing.

    as santacruz already told you, the main thing that will increase your rankings will be the titles/descriptions/tags .
    It also count the upload date, views,favorites.
    Try to research a bit to find the best keywords for your niche and try to rank different copies of your video on all the subKeywords , and point them to your main video.

    You still don't get me Yupefer. If you use the same tags and title your video will be snatched down. :( Use the same content (original song with different video of a slideshow or lyrics made by someone who's probably doing what daintyG suggested. Change the title still making it something that will attract fans of that artist.
    Different but similar tags and you're in. ;)

    You can also do what she suggests about being first by watching the biggest lyrics sites and creating your own lyrics video first time it appears. Now you're hitting them from both angles.

    Well a popular artist released a new song today and I came in about 2 hrs late.
    I tried the new tactics you guys suggested and I am unable to rank high enough to get noticed :(.

    Had someone already made a lyrics video in that two hours? Hmmm..question is how to be prepared to launch video in minutes and constant checking on that site.
