    This might have already been answered but which social signals if any hold the most weight in terms of ranking on YouTube and Google, for example Facebbook shares, Twitter retweets etc,??? Thanks in advance!

    Easiest way to index links(with social signals) - retweets.

    Most valuable for direct ranking effect - Google +

    I dont know if there is a tool as such ..but manually add plus via g+
    also there was some trash talk about Google plus on Reddit recently , for those who follow Reddit
    and i was surprised to see g+ being painted as a ghost-town .. i would say FAR FAR from it
    G+ is going to be the future .. its got a much better layout than fb and Google is going to make it an essential component of ranking pretty soon

    regards

    Search on fiverr for social signals, then go with the highest rated. I buy a mixture of social signals from fiverr, they generally work really well in helping me rank on google.

    Ofcourse with no stepping back i would say google +.
    But the trick is to tag your google plus profile to your website, dont just add your g + button to your website.
    Adding +1s to your g + button will have little to no significance in terms of seo.

    Wow thanks for the replies guys....I recently bought a gig that got me 100 Google+1's, 100 Facebook likes, and 100 Pinterest repins and my video went from bottom of page 2 on Google to the #5 spot...Soon I will be able to take the top spot hopefully for a pretty competitive keyword and hopefully start banking!

    Good to know.
    But don't bank completely on social signals to rank your site, in long terms it might have some negative impact.

    I'm not surprised that Google would would rank its own Google+ service the highest.

    Ya of course they would. But I think its super hard to manipulate these and is easy to get caught. I know Im scared to use any services for it!

    If kept in strict moderation, it should be fine. But people get greedy and want huge results right away, which is what draws unwanted attention. Just keep it in moderation and most projects would be fine.

    RE: alaltaierii Thanks for the link, it's a great piece of research.

    If you want to rank on Google, + shares are great. I don't think they hold as much weight on Yahoo or Bing, though, for obvious reasons.

    using twi+fb+g is better solution. it would be strange, if you using only one, I think
