    Hi and welcome to My Journey On How To Rank Youtube Videos.

    I have been looking into this for a while now and i'm finely ready to take some action!

    Here is what i have already learned:

    1. Youtube recently did a update that makes high retention views very important
    2. Relevent Backlinks are important (not a 100% sure about this)
    3. Social Bookmarks are very important for ranking a vid.
    4. Don't copy someone's video (youtube doesn't rank them and they will be removed)
    5. Favs and comments aren't that importent
    6. Likes will help a bit with ranking a vid but the best thing to do is focus on backlinks, social bookmarks and views

    Here is what i will do today:

    1. I will upload 2 vids (medium to low competition)

    2. I willl send high retention views to both vids

    3. I will send backlinks to vid 1 using GSA Search Engine Optimizer

    4. i will make some articals on some of those artical sites (ehow squido etc.) for vid 2

    I will update you guys when i'm seeing some results

    Tips and help is welcome ofcourse :D

    Your plan is good, however, with just 2 videos it's not like you are going to have any results to compare.
    Other than that, good luck!

    Not sure if this was just a mis-type. But backlinks have no effect on rankings within youtube - but have major impact on rankings withing google.

    Just thought I'd throw that out there, in case you didn't know.

    i posted this on another thread....

    This is how i rank my videos.... When i upload my video i make sure that my keyword is in title, description(I think a lengthy description kind of helps), tag, channel name and a few times in transcript/caption. Then i put it in to vagex and enhance views to add a few views, likes and comments and wait till it gets pass the views stuck mark (301 views)...then buy some high retention views along with vagex and ehanceviews still giving views,likes and comments . Add some more views, likes and comments over a few days and the video should reach at least page 1. In a low competition niche it would have reached #1 after you have received the retention views.

    oh and one thing i did with one of my videos but i wouldn't recommend is that i added loads and loads of extra tags in description(related keywords)...and my video jumped from page 11 to page 4 in a few hours... i didn't add views, likes or comments during that time...so the extra tags did make a difference...(or maybe it was just a fluke)...you could test this.

    oke thanks for the info! did you buy your views on fiverr?

    Does anyone know if social shares (like retweets etc) are important? I have seen some vids outranking other video's that have 200,00 views while the vid itself has 2000 views. the only difference is that the vid with 2000 views has some retweets and other social shares. would that be enough to outrank a video with 200,00 views?

    Please use Ahrefs to look at backlink data and social signal data.

    There appears to be not many backlinks and it ranked frontpage on Google baed on social media signals, view length, view count, likes, and perhaps comments helped as well. Nothing to ranking on YouTube other than dumping in social signals, high retention views, likes, and perhaps subscribers and comments if it isn't already receiving them.

    For me Youtube ranking is completely random ! Yes retention views does matter and all that stuff, but you need luck to rank well too!

    TRY IT AND TELL ME!

    Upload one video with same tags and description 100 times on youtube with different accounts! And then some of them might be ranked at page ONE while others on the LAST page!!
