    I only got into SEO a couple years ago and sadly, I haven't found the time to try and rank videos. However, now that I've become somewhat proficient in AE, I'd like to start doing so.

    So, here's what I'm curious about:

    Let's say there's a keyword with 3,500 exact searches per month and the top 10 have all done a little bit of SEO, with some decent on page optimization, domains with over 1,000 backlinks pointing to each domain, and between 20-100 backlinks pointing to the ranking page.

    If there are no videos in the top 10, will I rank the youtube page with less links and social signals pointing to my youtube page than the others have on their ranking page?

    I'm just trying to figure out which keywords to target.

    This should help you out a bit. (;

    Edit: Forgot to answer the rest of your question. I think it's technically easier to rank your Youtube video overall compared to your website, considering there isn't really a wrong way to go about the backlinks. Obviously you want OKAY backlinks, but you don't need heavy tiered, drip-fed links coming to it. Would you need less quantities of backlinks/social signals? You'd assume so naturally, but I don't want to say yes and give you false information. :eek:
