    Does anyone know how to properly rank video on youtube now after updates ?

    Old method (views, comments,likes etc) Doesnt seem to work , there are also other different things what you need to know.

    Does anyone know how to rank video and get traffic ?

    You should optimize your tags, description and title. Use the main keyword everywhere (tags, description, title). Use a unique video. Boost some videos, and get some backlinks with scrapebox. That should do it.

    Cheers!

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    From my experience, it's almost like with websites - first you do the OnSite SEO (optimize tags, title, description, comments even!), then the offsite, you build some backlinks, keep them diverse, even backlink from commenting on other videos (be careful not to get banned, and comments removed).

    Generally, not all that much is different. All you need to do is make sure it looks natural, naturally a popular video would be posted all over the web, shared on social networks, and mentioned in related videos (comments).

    Well

    As i see , and from experience, my own videos (which i created) Rank better then stolen videos, download and reuploaded video, dont know if this is right, but it seems like that

    Also , to rank video on Google searches , then you need to build backlinks etc. just like website.
    Im just not sure if backlinks works to rank video on youtube.com

    Will test it out soon :)

    Any more tips ?

    It seems to be harder nowadys to rank a video on Youtube. I recently uploaded a lot videos, all with optimized tags, description, etc. I also added views, likes, favs and comments but the videos are just sitting there like a rock on page whatever :( Not the slightest movement up or down. Still trying to figure out why.

    I don't think that backlinks are really important for the Youtube rank. I've got videos that are on #1 for a keyword in Youtube, which don't have any backlinks at all. I also got some which have a good ranking in Google without any backlinks. But well, maybe I should test it further.

    make a good quality video, but focus on title, tags, description. All these should relate to the Google search you want to be ranked for. If you dont get any views or likes, you could buy some.

    Also , people say that people need to watch video from start till end, and it will give better results, view lenght is important maybe ?

    What BTB said above is true but there are a few more things to take into account.

    View count
    View length
    Like/dislike/comment ratio to views. It should look natural.

    another thing they take into account that matters a lot is the views in the first 48 hours

    I can 100% agree with YT getting harder to rank vids.

    I used to be able to rank any vid top 3 very easily and quickly, but now i'm struggling massively. It's even got to such an extent that i'm paranoid that YT is somehow watching/recognising my uploads and ghosting me.

    So, i will try to rank video.
    stats will be

    1000-5000 searches , exact with Youtube keyword tool, and also google keyword tool( i think i should look for Google keyword, because youtube keyword tool doesnt seems so accurate.)

    Results on youtube : 500-3000

    Niches : Random

    What i will do ?

    Will make 3 videos in 3 different niches , will look for 3 good videos in same niches.
    Upload.
    Then, will use You like hits, to get Likes, Also will do comments on videos.
    Will get video views, and will make sure that video being watched from start to ending.
    Also will do Scrapebox blast, some tweets, will also post on facebook.

    Maybe i should open Youtube video ranking yournal ? :D

    Haven't seen your bank statements, buddy.

    Only way you can rank a video in 5 minutes is by having a good title, description and tags when you upload. If you can do that then it must be a pretty unpopular search term. Anything else will take time.
