    Hi,

    I've been reading up on using social signals to rank both websites and videos. I have two quick questions.

    Would google plus shares or google plus votes be better for ranking a youtube video?

    Would facebook shares or facebook likes be better for ranking a youtube video?

    Thanks

    As you wanted to rank youtube video. Youtube is Google's product so more you get +1 share from google+ for your video more you will get ranking.

    Google+ shares are an important metric of user engagement, just like likes, comments, favorites and subscriptions driven, so I would have to say it's very essential

    Google plus (+1 or shares) should get top priority for obvious reasons and compliment this with facebook shares to make video popular in ranking.
