    I've uploaded a few videos on Youtube recently and it's been a day or two and I noticed they are not showing on Google yet even though there is not much competition.

    Is it still easy to rank Youtube videos on Google? Or do I just have to wait this out a little longer?

    I see all this stuff now about adding transcripts and stuff into the videos and it makes me lazy to think about it. Is that really required do you think?

    I read somewhere that to make it go viral, just make it private and send a bunch of traffic and referral to the video. Once it has some views and some traffic, make it public.

    Let's put it this way: if it was easy, everyone would do it. There's only one #1 video and competition is high.

    While it is a good method, the risks of getting it flagged and deleted is way too high.

    i don't think it's working anymore. people are complaining that YT patched this and it doesn't affect your rankings from now on. :)

    For OP, it's still easy to rank a YT video once you know how to do it. Do research, and test different methods for ranking videos.
    P.S.-No one is going to tell you their method of ranking a video on YT, so you have to find one for yourself. :) :p

    Easy or not.... this depends on the keywords which you target.

    To get max result, you need acquire hundreds of backlinks for a YT video.

    yeah, he meant "Unlisted" coz not everyone can see your private videos, only the people whom u allow specifically can see them.

    If the competition is quite low than believe me your youtube video will rank in few hours. Though
    you need to keep basic things at right place.

    Would love to see how the competition is ?

    Yeah the competition does infact seem low. Keyword planner shows low competition with like 16k searches per month as well as when I do a Google search on the phrase, almost all the search results don't even contain one of the words in the search phrase.

    The only way I rank videos these days is unlist method.

    go to any niche like clash of clans and you will see videos ranked with this method.
