Hi, I've been researching what seems to rank youtube videos on the first page of google, but there seems to be no "rhyme or reason". I've seen videos with no embeds, links and no links in descriptions, articles posted in descriptions and nothing much posted in the description, etc. What do you guys think are the ranking factors for youtube vids? Also, do you think linking directly to the vid page (not an embed which youtube calls a link) helps as much as it would with a html page? I've put some of the high ranking videos in a backlinks checker that returned no results for any of them? MODS: Please don't move this thread if possible, I'm not talking about trying to rank in youtube, get more views, etc. But to rank high in google with youtube pages. Thank you!
