    Hello everyone , i am into YT + PPD a little while ago i made 5 vids and i want to correct my mistakes taking your advices .
    - First , while creating the video should it be long or short , i usually try cutting it down to 60 seconds for easier retention views . What signals or tools i should use on the video . Just tell me ideas that would increase CTR if you know some . I use camtasia to make vids and i think its fine.
    - Second , i use exchange sites like addmefast , EV and Vagex to increase video properties . I optimize keywords in title and tags for seo . i hit 3rd to 5th page on my main keyword . How do videos rank up to top page .should i only be increasing views or is there any other tactics to do?

    Thank you all

    Yes you are right. I would make videos between 1-3 minutes but no shorter for SEO. I have seen that shorter videos don't do as well. Also focus on getting quality links to your video. I have ranked videos in very competitive niches with very few views. 99% of the people that are trying to rank videos on Google never do any link building. I would focus on relevant links that are permanent to get the best results. Many people think they can go into a highly competitive market with just views and likes. I agree you need less of them for Youtube videos but the links are still important especially if you want the top 3 spots not the #10 spot. I hope this helps some.

    On-page optimization like file size, encoding, views, description, and link popularity. Other critical factors include the number of views, votes, and bookmarks your videos get are also essential so aside from optimizing, you need to be really active and participate well in the YouTube community.
