    I've managed to get a video ranking #1 on the YouTube internal search for my chosen term with a view to displacing the top video that was appearing on the normal Google search results. Just wondering how long it takes to appear in that slot? It's been 2 and a half days since it was uploaded.

    If anyone could share there insights, that'd be great...

    Thanks

    Check if Google has indexed the video yet and build links to the YT video the same as you would for a normal site.

    Remember that google doesn't read/crawl video. It will see the title, description, keywords, comments etc so make sure it is properly optimised for the keywords you are targeting. I also believe that view count can help but I'm not 100% sure as I don't do YT marketing at the moment...

    Yep Google has indexed the video, but it isn't showing in the normal Google SERPs yet, even though it is top of the internal YT search results. How long can it take to appear on Google search?

    I have been wondering the same thing as I am trying to outrank another video. I have heard that sending out a spun article to article directories will help. Maybe do an AMR blast and create a few web 2.0s?

    How did you find if google indexed your vid?

    I'm having the same problem. Hit #1 in youtube search about 3 weeks ago, but the vids I'm outranking in youtube still show up ahead of mine in google search. I'm kinda wondering if my vid got sandboxed or something.

    I would go in and ping it with your keyword. then I would go and do "captions" of the video so G can read the words that are included with the video. Then I would do a couple of bookmarks, then depending on the comp. you should be seeing yourself in the results in 3-4 days. If you don't see it after doing all that you may need to float a bit of traffic over to the video. Hope that helps. thanks

    by "captions" do you mean write some info in the description of the vid?

    No captions would be ALL of the text/words that are spoken in the video with an output of a text file. Basically a text file with the words spoken in the video for YT, G, etc to read that file and know what the video is about.

    There are a couple of automated tools for this but they don't work perfectly. I would suggest getting someone from fivver to do it for you.

    Then upload that text file in youtube

    Thanks

    If your video have 1M / 2M / 3M views(even bot views).. More easy to pop-up your video on Google search engine. :)

    i think that best way is to threat your video as separate web site..
    build web2.0 links, spun articles, post to large forums, gain views with bots and of course proper tags and description will do the job ...

    Just because your ranked #1 on youtube doesnt mean you'll be #1 on Google..
