    You need four things:
    -optimalisation
    -views
    -backlinks
    -social signals
    Optimise your video and then just build some social bookmarks, add views, comments, likes and subscribers and watch it rising.

    They are affected by the same factors as regular web pages for the most part because that is essentially what they are. I believe views and interactions come into play as well but I've never done any case studies on it. Your SEO tools will definitely help you out! I'm interested to see what other people have to say I haven't used YT for marketing in quite a while and I've been meaning to get back on it.

    Are you talking about front page of Google or on YouTube? For some reason I'm on the first page of YouTube but not Google. Not sure why but hopefully it'll resolve itself within a week or two before I look more deeper into it.

    Anyway, if it's just the first page of YouTube for low competition keywords (around 5,000 global exact monthly searches or less) then I would suggest these gigs from Fiverr:
    - Optimization: http://fiverr.com/aaliyaan/seo-opti...ed-at-number-top-1-position-in-search-results This is key. Your video must be optimized without a doubt.
    - Views/Likes: http://fiverr.com/saketasati/provide-1000-plus-youtube-video-views This is to kick-start your video. If you want to use your own seller or something, that is fine.It's best if you find somebody that does everything such as views, likes, favs, etc. For custom comments, it's suggested that about 80%+ of your comments contain your main keyword.
    - Social bookmarking: http://fiverr.com/nottyhotty/submit-your-site-to-700-social-bookmarks-and-will-ping-them Back-links are needed. For YouTube, I've heard social bookmarks are best.
    - Blog comments: http://fiverr.com/seo_dude/give-500...acklinks-to-your-web-sites-and-web-properties I've just used these to throw in some extra "juice" to the social bookmarks.

    Extra stuff
    - http://fiverr.com/dino_stark/build-eminent-backlink-pyramid-with-5000-high-pr-profiles
    - http://fiverr.com/volarex/create-18...0-unique-wiki-domains-the-google-panda-killer
    These are just to throw in more links if needed. These are not necessary but it helps.

    It is VERY important that you purchase that optimization gig if you don't know how to optimize your own video. This is just from my own personal experience though so I can't guarantee it will work the same for you. Or, if you are looking for a more professional method, then you can try BigBuddy's YouTube ranking service here. I would link it to you but I can't seem to find it.

    Hopefully I helped you a little :)

    It's easier to just rank the videos your self... paying other people to do it can be a good thing depending on how you go about it but if you're just starting out i'd suggest you get the first hand experience your self. It's definitely not easy to keep videos up let alone just one. You gotta upload a lot of videos.... and out of the bunch... rank like half of them and keep the other half lost in the searches while it builds some age on it. The best luck i've had is with videos that are at least 3-4 weeks old... other wise I'll get to the first page quick but then just get flagged down.

    But the factors i've noticed lately that help rank the best

    - Age of video/account
    - Relevant title (with keyword)
    - Good Description (at least 200 words)
    - Likes
    - Views
    - Comments (you need some really good non spam comments)

    That mistake is a nice proof that you're coming fresh from SEO

    Keywords need to be on point(also use CC and annotations)

    Views, likes, comments

    I've read that embedding your video on public comments/forums/blogs can help your rank, but I think that is more in regards to your Google rank. Although, it can potentially create more unique views so there is no harm in trying.
