    Hey BHW, been gone away from IM/SEO world for a while now, just trying to catch up on everything that has changed as of late. I figured i might mess around with YouTube at first to start, but I remember 2 or 3 years ago YouTube really started to change a lot SEO wise. Like it seemed a lot more difficult to rank a video on page 1 of Google even low comp keywords. Was wondering if you guys could fill me in on the current status on what its like ranking videos on Google ?

    Thanks

    In Some niches you can rank instantly or within few days with
    1) Proper Onpage Seo ie. title, description and tags,
    2) High retention views better if they are from social media services
    3) Engagement likes / dislikes / subscribers and share

    While for other niches u need some good backlinks as well

    I have heard that tags have little to no influence on ranking the video on Google, is that true ?
