    Hi. When researching keywords I have found some that are profitable keywords but have no YT video on page one of google search results. Would you take this as a good sign that its easier to rank my video, or not. By the way not talking about YouTube search results, just the big G.

    Yeah, it is a good sign and you should definitely create a video or two, but depending on how tough the competition is, it may still be hard to rank. Also, make sure you don't overdo your tags as, from my experience, it can have a negative impact on your Google rankings.

    Check pages 2 and 3 and 4 until you find the first video ranking on Google.
    Then check the amount of backlinks it has. If it has good backlinks then stay away from that keyword.
    If it's a crap with 0 - 2 random backlinks, go for it, but be cautious, your work may still not pay out.
    Also check backlink profiles of the websites ranking in 1st page, their authority etc.
