    I wonder is it easier to rank very old youtube video (5 years old for example) in google than new one? Do you have any experiences ?

    I haven't experienced any of this. I can rank video fairly fast I say but that is because of the keywords I go for so it might be easier to rank old videos rather than ranking newer ones.

    I think all videos are pretty easy to rank, but I do see for some keywords old videos dominating the results.

    If I were Google I'd rank newer videos higher because they're more likely to be up to date. You can't edit a youtube video like you can a web page.

    I don't think google thinks that way.. If it would you would 1 day sites popping up all the time in the serps.

    I don't mean a couple days new, but like a few weeks or so at least. I have two videos that are both a month old ranking in #1 and #2 spots.

    You all seem to be saying 'easy to rank'. I have been finding it incredibly hard to rank and I have legit channel with 2+ million views and 17000 real subscribers. Whats your trick ? :)

    Yeah its hard to rank in google nowadays, but i will try to blast my 3 years old video. When i checked hack niche, i found 1-3 years old videos on the google's front page only.
