    I posted this as a reply in another thread, but it had a strange title so here's my repost.

    If you want to rank a YouTube video in Google there are three elements. First, be sure the title of your video matches your keyword. Second, be sure to add a good description with keyword and related terms. You can put a call to action here also. Third, get views and likes. Depending on the keyword difficulty you might need more or less. I've been ranking videos with a difficulty of about 1M - 2M competitors (Google) with a few hundred views and maybe 20-50 likes. Note that your view count on YT will stall at about 300 - this is normal. Just keep getting views - YT is still counting them.

    Where do you get the views. I prefer to use a social exchange site (AMF, YLH, etc.) to get the first batch of views. After that if you need a lot more you can get them on Fiverr.

    If you're shooting for super competitive terms you'll probably also need to do backlinking to your video.

    My competition has a video with 400 views 30 likes and 10 dislikes, yet he's ranked above me on both youtube itself and google. I don't understand the reasoning behind this.

    ^^ if those 400 views , 30 likes are real then he will rank

    try to pass him [ get 1000 high rentation views , 1000 refferal views , 100 likes 50 dislikes ]

    dislikes also help to rank [ because only real people can dislike ]

    also try comments [ see noob guru ]

    Check your video. Be sure you have all of the page elements optimized (title, description, etc.). Get more views, likes, comments. Also, check to see if your comp has backlinks to the video.

    A backlink is also good for Ranking in google.

    My point is you usually don't need backlinks. Also, videos rank fast. I mean really fast. I had a client meeting in Brooklyn and the night before I put up a video with "keyword in Brooklyn" as the title. At the meeting I showed that the video was ranking on the first page (after only about 12 hours). A day later it was ranked #1 in Google. No backlinks at all.

    Not so simple in my experience. I have a few videos (all of them 2 months or more old) with thousands of retention views on them, a good amount of "likes" and finally some social bookmarks too and they are still nowhere to be seen on Google; not even top 100. And KWs aren't even that competitive at all. Proper video onsite optimization has been taken care of too.

    I'm in the process of backlinking them with a nice variety of quality links to see if that helps, but so far it seems very strange the videos aren't even somewhere around the first 10 pages.

    I have ranked 2 videos with some backlinks and help of social media. Bought a fiverr gig too, though competition wasnt tough that's why ranked quickly.

    Optimizing your video, (title tags descriptions) and social bookmarking usually is all I need to do, as long as keyword isn't uber-competitive

    I have to admit comments, like and dislike affect the ranking to be at the top based on how competitive it can be. I manage to rank video just with backlink, but it a certain peak which require basic Youtube element such as like, comments, etc.

    I am experiencing the same thing that you are experiencing. I have some views (and still counting) some likes/subs and started a link pyramid. I am still building all of the above but I am not even up to page 9 in google. I am looking to get some direct backlinks tho. I am trying to find a good fiverr supplier. Most of the people who do direct backlinking in high numbers do it in a spammy way and those links get deleted after some time (at least I heard) so Im not sure if getting xx,xxx amount of wiki links/blog comments will actually help the SERP position of my video.

    How are you planning on building your links?

    Dont forget to use something like u2bviews so you can write your own comments. What I do is write about 20 of my own comments asking questions about my product. Make all comments approved only. Once they are all posted go back and answer them with the account and make helpful answers to your questions posted by u2bviews.

    I totally agree with you. K/w in Title and also in Description helps to rank Videos on Top SERP.
