    Hey guys. I have been successfully ranking videos on youtube search, but I have only ranked a few videos on Google. I know that for ranking on YT search, backlinks are not that important (if at all). But when it comes to ranking videos on Google, I know backlinks are much more important. But let me give you guys a scenario:

    Video 1:-
    Views: 5000
    Retention 80%
    Backlinks: 1000+
    Keyword Targeting: In title, tags, description and everything. More targetted!

    Video 2:-
    Views: 100,000
    Retention: 40%
    Backlinks: <10
    Keyword Targetting: In title, tags, and description, but still less targeted than video 1.

    Video 3:-
    Views: 5000
    Retention: 80%
    Backlinks: 30 (blog network links)
    Keyword Targetting: Same as Video 1

    In this case, which video will rank higher on Google? Video 1 or Video 2?

    Secondly, overall, do you think a video with 10 times more backlinks could outrank a video with 10 times more YT signals (like, views, likes,comments,subs etc.)?

    If you make it look unorganic and do a crap ton of backlinks and views with no pulse afterward than it might raise a flag. I dont think either will last long before its taken down By google serp

    Retention/views/rankings are necessary to rank on YouTube search results, there nowhere as relevant when attempting to achieve Google rankings.

    Also, quantity is not going to do you any good. A lot of it will get you link juice, but it's like blasting a site, higher quality links help it, but terrible quality links can't penalize it (video, not site).

    views and YT signals have no effect on video ranking in Google . However video uploaded from high authority yt account might rank higher .
