    What strategies have you been using to rank keywords to the top of YouTube (not google)? I have been out of the game for a few years, and am sure a lot has changed. Any guides I should buy?

    Thanks!

    PS- is there a specific website you like to buy views etc off of?

    My niche is in the USA, most of the videos on page one are 1k- 20k views for my keyword phrases.

    Focus more on video, The quality, title, Longer description and the tags after dropping the video send some HR views to give it a boost followed by Likes and few comments and if the niche is not that tough you will find yourself in page 1.

    Yes, many threads on this subject already here.

    In short, video quality and high retention will automatically rank your videos.

    Watch time is foremost parameter!

    Ranking videos nowadays is all about {watch time+retention+engagement} = {the quality of the video+the longer of the video+high retention views}
    Note 1: The authority of the channel have a big role on ranking videos
    Note 2: streaming videos always rank better
