    hey guys, there are some kind of keywords which the first 3 or so results are youtube videos. Im curious of how hard it is to outrank this videos with an actual website . They seem to be more appealing to click on. Does someone have experience with this kind of keyword?

    Yes, you can outrank youtube videos with your website.
    Quality backlinks with proper on page optimization you can beat youtube video on SERP.

    If keyword consisting following words "watch," "video," "online." it may be little difficult. Becuase Google would want to show Youtube first, and any future algorithm updates may reinforce this.

    Youtube videos don't have extra strong rankings in google from my experience, its definitely possible to outrank them just keep working on your SEO :)

    Yes, you can do that. But, it depends on your keyword phrases and you just need to work on it more. Try to build the bunch of backlinks and perform a very good on-page optimization. With enough quality backlinks and on-page SEO, you can easily outrank YT.

    Thanks guys. But I guess this makes the keyword more difficult than what it would be. YouTube videos are not a sign of low competition like those other WordPress blogs etc.

    Mostly keyword suggestions found in Google AdWords will be very general, because Google wants you to use keywords with high search volume for your ads. These keywords are more likely to generate a lot of impressions and clicks for promoted videos, hence make more revenue for Google.
