    Optimizing your title and description with your targeted keywords helps.

    But creating a video that people want to watch and forward to their peers will help much more.

    Optimize title, description, and tags. Put all your KWs in tags. Description should have the keyword 4-5 times used intelligently. Should not look spammy to the average user. Give some views and likes using sites like vagex and u2bviews. If you have a less competitive niche, this should be enough. Otherwise, you'll need social signals (twitter retweets, facebook likes, google +1s and such).

    Yeah man, there's a wealth of info here on the forums. We can't just spoon feed everyone. I wasn't spoon fed. So in my opinion, no one else should be either. You gotta put in work! And read read read until your eyes start to burn!

    Theres more to ranking vids than what you have read here.

    I agree, I uploaded three similar videos for fun in a medium-competition niche and bought views on one, likes on one, then ran GSA on some - and of those three the GSA videos now rank the best around a month later.

    As for marketing the video, you don't think that building other links will be useful? Best case scenario is to actually rank the YouTube video in Google for the keyword as well as your own site (YT vid first more than likely). Therefore, would it be useful to do web 2.0 + other links to the YT vid?

    I guess what I'm trying to say is that this strategy seems good for improving YT rank when people search through that site, but it could be more lucrative if you went the route of ranking in Google. Thoughts?
