    I've a couple of local seo projects that we'll be tracking. One is for a dentist in a city that has over 100 dentists and the other is a cleaning service.

    The dentist's website is an emd dentistcity.org and I started with getting 6 youtube videos with a link back to the website done on May 20. A week ago I sent over 1700 retweets and 450 google +1's to it. Today it's ranked 16 with no other backlinking done. Below is the tracking graph.

    Yesterday I got a link wheel gig delivered on the website and that's what I want to be tracking, the results of that particular gig.

    For the cleaning service, I have a customer testimonial video on youtube that is ranked number 5 in the serps for the kw cleaning city name. The only thing that was done to it was getting over 1900 vagex views, 85 likes, and some comments courtesy of G-S-T here. Today I ordered 10,000 xrumer links for it and we'll be tracking the results of that gig. After a week or two we should be able to see the results ot those xrumer links and if there's not any noticeable improvement in the ranking we can concluded that vagex is the way to go.
    Tracking graph from sepfox:

    Previously on May 20 I ordered a 1250 Senuke backlink gig for one of the dentist's videos and it only got to position 63. Today I ordered 10,000 xrumer links for a new video that I had just made for the dentist and we'll be tracking the results of that gig.

    What I'm trying to determine is what works on ranking a yt video in the serps, is it tons of backlinks or views? Also will be trying to determine what backlink gigs will push a website up the serps.

    Hope this going to help some of you here.

    The xrumer gig has been delivered. Let's see what it's going to do to the videos. I'm going to take the customer testimonial video and create a new video with calls to action in it which the original didn't have. Then I'm going to buy 5000 views for it and track that.

    Views work well for ranking also, I find that when i get around 20k views delivered to a video i start ranking for terms i didnt think of (Niche related).

    Agreed, I'm beginning to believe that getting thousands of view is the main reason gets ranked in the serps.

    The dentist's website moved up 3 spots to 13. Is that from the link wheel? Man, that's pretty quick action.

    No movement on the videos.

    Got the new video done with call to action added. Started sprinkling a few views from addmefast to it. Now going to buy a few thousand from vagex. No backlinking to this one and let's see if it'll rank on views alone.

    5000 credits loaded into vagex account. I'm going to wait until tomorrow morning before I unload those views on this brand new video, don't want to make it look too suspicious.

    Awesome thread. I think having a good assortment of quality links and lots of views definitely help. Keep in mind that Google does own YT and they can see all the places your video's traffic is coming from. If they see it's all paid traffic, they may catch on, but I haven't heard anyone having this problem.

    The traffic comes from twitter and faceplant. How's G going to know if it's paid traffic or not? I won't tell if you won't.

    On YT they havnt decided to catch on yet. But to optimize id say this:

    1. Use Vagex and a few other services (Vagex is not the best with consistent view count but they have good tools)
    2 Make the view duration at least 1/2 the video length.
    3 I agree with the post above..it takes about 20k views to make a difference it seems so in order to expedite this use some blast services (fiverr) while running your own Vagex campaign.
    4. compliment the views with likes and some subs
    5. get some comments in there
    6. So some basic keyword work in the description - also use linkbacks in description.
    7 Use the meta-tags but dont go crazy, you dont need a ton from my experience.
    8. Make sure the title is spot on with what you are trying to rank for
    9 Use the in video annotations to compliment the title and other keywords sprinkled though-out - not 100% that matters, but it takes jsut a few extra minutes.

    From all those things you should get YT rank for sure and a byproduct it will translate to other google search areas. There is probably more im forgetting but thats a great start.

    I made an error in the op, the second 10k xrumer links was for a customer testimonial video for my cleaning service and not the dentist. This is a brand new video and nothing else has been done to it. Well, that video hit the front page today ranked 6, one spot ahead of the video with the 1900 vagex views. I'm going to wait a few days and make sure it's going to stay put and not doing the G dance then I will hit it with a few hundred social bookmarks. Tracking graph below.

    The dentist website moved up to position 13, not a big improvement but at least it's going in the right direction. Looking for another backlink gig to use on it so recommendations are welcomed.

    I've created another video which will be getting only fast views and see if it'll rank with that only. When Skittles reopens for business again I'll order 5k from him.
    In order to keep things straight, I'll name each video like this, the fast view video, the vagex video, the backlinks video.

    Status update:
    The vagex video has shown up on page 3 position 23. These organic views are coming slow but look more natural. I've got the view length of 60 second, likes, and comments. Vagex has delivered 4320 views resulting in 1225 yt views, 54 likes and 30 comments, is a span of 6 days. At this rate it'll take approx 4 weeks to get 5k yt view, too slow for me.

    @ngriffin360,
    Nope, Skittles not up yet. I ordered elsewhere as I just couldn't wait any longer. I'm really curious to see if fast views can still rank. By the way thanks for all your tip, most of them I've been implementing already.

    Place order just now for a Senuke blast at the backlinks video. Let's see if the gig can get the video up pass the Places seven pack.

    Also, order placed earlier today for 7k fast views.

    I think you should use the google analytic to get the answers you are looking for.
    Otherwise i did not understand your question.
