    Hey everyone! I've tried searching both here on BHW and Google for this, but I haven't come up with anything actually useful. I'm not asking to be spoonfed on how SEO works - I've got that covered. What I'm wondering is if it's realistic to try and outrank YouTube videos on Google? I've got several niches with extremely low competition that I could make huge bank off of if I got to the top 3-4. On each of the keywords, though, the top 5-6 results are YouTube videos.

    So what I'm asking is, is it realistic to try and outrank YouTube videos? Or am I, at best, looking at a lower-first page ranking?

    Thanks, your help is appreciated!

    Both, This is the only difference. depending on what will be ur niche. Youtube its great for quick traffic. Seo in the other its long term, take longer to rank but at the end its rewarding.

    Possible to be honest. It all depends on how aged the video is, how well backlinked, etc. If you're talking about videos with less than 10 thousand views then chances are you'll probably make it.
