    Hello, i have a original, real and valuable video of some keyword that now it's on top of youtube results, all views, comments and stuff are real, a original and +300 words description too. But in google serp it does not rank well (in fact it even appears). Actually, in the second result on google serp for the keyword is a video (now, #2 on youtube, behind my). The video have only one minute, a silly music, three images and a link to the money page. This was uploaded one month before mine but since i knew about this keyword the video is on top of google serp. Only this video rank on google serp, all the others results for the keyword and variations of keyword are web pages.

    So, what this video are in the google top and my is not? Since i ranked better on the youtube itself? Can be social signs? Linkbuilding on the video? I am new on trying to rank videos so if you guys could tell me some insights i'll appreciate. Like i sad i already have real viewers, the video it's valuable, but i don't known how i can transform this on a good position on google serp haha.

    Thank you all.

    When trying to rank on Google one of the first things you need to do is first see if there is currently a video ranking on page 1 of Google. It is VERY hard and sometimes impossible to force your way on to the first page of Google, especially in the niche you are in. Google "pre-determines" what keywords they want a YouTube video to be on the first page of. They do this to protect their users. They only want to return trusted content, especially when it deals with medical or health related topics.

    Hi thanks for the answer. First, how you known that my video is about medical/health? i did even mention that haha. So you're saying that once one video is related on serp it's impossible to "replace" it? even if i make a LB work or something like that? cause in terms of trusted content my video is a way beyond that video ranking now (but i known that unfortunatelly it's hard to a bot see that haha). And saying this maybe i can sound a bad guy or so, but and with reserve seo? buy some really fake youtube viewers, bad links, wonder if it may help? If you are agains this just ignore.

    Ps - by what i found here, the owner of this video in question rank more videos for others keywords in the exact same way (a fake channel, with only one video), so i think that he must had found a way to do this haha.

    Thanks again

    Did you check how many backlinks has your competitor's video? It might be the answer you're looking for.

    on ahrefs it doest not appears; on opensiteexplorer only three links, actually it says three but i could not find the link in one of then, soi t's two and the sites are .blogspot, have almost no authority, so i think that the answer is not the backlinks.

    That could mean he is hiding them. If as you say, he has more videos ranking, he surely found ways of hiding tracks so that each noob can't copy his method.

    Good luck sorting this out.

    I'm starting to think that he uploaded the video in the very beginning when was almost no competition, maybe made some youtube method, ranked and like abhi007 sad, once google like in some way the video it gets ranked and now it's impossible to replace :(. Maybe the key was that, upload first the video.

    That is a good theory and only testing will be able to give you the answer to that! I too am having the same debacle and literally just read this post:

    Recently, Youtube Videos have become increasingly difficult to rankon
    Google. What you need is to build quality and relevant backlinks to get
    your Youtube Video ranked on Google. You should use a combination
    of Web 2.0, Social Bookmarks and Wiki Links.
