    Hi all,

    Even though they're near the bottom, I've finally got some of my videos ranking on YT's first page for my targeted keywords. So I'm now wondering what's needed to climb further up the page?

    If all the titles, descriptions & tags are optimized for the keyword, is it just a case of getting more social signals, likes etc .. than the competition?

    For example ...

    Competition in the No.1 position has:

    11k YT likes, 1k FB likes, 1.7k FB shares, 500 FB comments, 350 Tweets, 1.7k Google +1's, etc.

    My video in No.6 position only has:

    142 YT likes, 27 FB likes, 225 FB shares, 9 FB comments, 173 Tweets, 109 Google =1's, etc.

    So do I just need to match & then better all these numbers .. or am I missing something?

    If it is the case of needing to match these numbers, can anyone recommend a BHW service that drip feeds social signals over say, 30+ days? .. Because according to the stats, I'll need thousands of them, so I'm guessing they will need to be drip fed.

    Thanks for any help.

    Fuzzy.

    I think it matters atmore how many views did you get lately, how many likes, comments and subscriptions. But I am not a pro in that...

    Thanks Mucko,

    Views, likes & comments certainly play their part, but I've noticed that a lot of the videos above mine have less of those things .. hence my question about needing to out-do-them with social signals.
