    Hey guys,

    Lately I've seen on this forum a lot of threads on how to rank a video on youtube and a lot of journeys/methods for CPA/Clickbank+Youtube. Well I did my research and I have made a couple of case studies and the results are EPIC. Couple of days ago I've spent whole day making videos plus uploading them to youtube.

    I created 4 accounts, and I uploaded 20 videos on each account, all videos are for different products of clickbank.

    1st Account - Uploaded, bought views+likes+comments+linkbuilding etc.. etc.. 4 videos are on page 1 of youtube the rest somewhere beyond.
    2nd Account - Uploaded, same as above but didn't add link to the description - this didn't change much 5 videos on first page
    3rd account - Uploaded, left them as they were - no links/comments/etc etc etc - only 1 vid made it to the first page
    4th account - uploaded, Massive linkbuilding, tons of social signals(no views/comments/likes)- 2 vids on 1st page of google + 7 are #1 on youtube and almost all on 1st page of youtube.

    And yes, 1st+2nd account already has some videos flagged(This is because they track where the views/likes/etc are coming from!!!) as in 3rd/4th account not a single video has been flagged yet.

    So there you go, a Complete case study on how to rank a video on youtube. on the 4th account I have made really a lot of social signals(10-15 different networks) so I guess that's the one thing that helps to rank a video.

    Cool story bro. When it comes to YouTube rankings, why not build links not just for internal youtube search engine but Google as well? I love when I search for something and see a video in the SERPs. I check the video first. I am pretty sure a lot of people do this or is it just me?

    A lot of people do it has the same affect as a Rel Author link.

    That is really interesting, how competitive are the keywords that you are ranking for?

    numbers -
    Around 10 LIVE bookmarks/hour - for almost 3 days now
    Social - not too sure, about 10 twitter tweets with ~50 retweets each
    Facebook - 10-15 shares + some likes
    And other networks 3-4 links each
    the most competetive has 17k searches and is on #5 on youtube,
    some of the keywords that are #1 have 500-2.6k searches, these are from Google keyword tool no youtube.
    one keyword that has already started monetizing is "penis enlargement guide" haha

    To be honest, I just find it much more convenient to buy views/likes to the video instead of having to do 3+ other things to rank my video (I'm just lazy :D )
    I'm going to look into this though, when I finish exams I will definitely experiment with this ^^

    I'm a generous man, this isn't my niche and I'm not after youtube/clickbank whatever.. I did this just as a trial/see what's so difficult about making 10$/100$/200$ a day, and simple help out newbies. I learned it the hard way :)

    p.s. if noobs take action after knowing one of my videos is "penis enlargement guide", let them do it

    I really appreciate you measuring and sharing your results. I'm curious how these videos will preform in the future. Maybe you could update us a month or two from now?

    Hi Berkeli,

    Thanks to your thread I'm on first page of youtube for the keyword. I'm Rank 11 currently and I've just uploaded the video yesterday. The competition is not that hard as I found only 5 videos targeting exactly my keyword. They have thousands of views though. About 1.2k to 28k for the top 10. I only have 30 views. :(

    I've used about 10-15 facebook shares, about 2 google shares. 9 tweets and will be adding more retweets. I've added youtube 2 comments manually from different IPs and 3 likes.

    I have a question though if you don't mind.

    Where did you get your social bookmarks? I'm using GSA to send social bookmarks and social network module. What did you use? Did you use any service?
