    Hello:

    I'm no programmer or IM expert or anything close to that (although I can appreciate those who are). I am pretty strong at video, and a long-time YouTube adopter, and I'm here to share some firsthand experience and results from various videos.

    Although they might take 60 - 90 days (usually much less, especially if you buy some YT views/likes, etc). quick little videos that are properly tagged almost ALWAYS end up on page 1 as a thumbnail. Not sure if I'm allowed to add links here, but one recent example: search with "schaumburg massage" and see a thumbnail of a quickie short video I did this year. The (single unit small business owner) client is thrilled, as she spent almost no money and there's a lot of competition in that market with massage therapists, franchise chains, salons etc.

    This also works with restaurants, bands, food products - whatever. Decently produced content with watermarks, good tags and hopefully other backlinks... it works folks.

    cheers,

    Chef

    Thanks for the tips. I have a question if you don't mind: do you think that backlinks help or play a part to rank a video in YT rankings (not just google)? if so, which type of backlinks?

    Yes, backlinks help, treat YT as if it were any other website. And as for what type of links that all comes down to your preference. YT is authoritative though so some junk links are fine.

    Yes I agree that a little "back end" SEO and/or view purchase doesn't hurt. You can get those cheap on Fiverr or Tenrr BUT... I would make sure there are a relative number of "likes" to go with the views - it looks weird to have a bunch of views showing with zero or little likes. Make sense?

    cheers,
