    I would have to say a Youtube video also. Not by experience but by what others are saying.

    With that said, this does not mean that it will be easy for you to rank either. That all depends on the niche and your link building and seo capability and knowledge.

    Youtube video, but it doesn't convert as well as a website with a proper setup.

    Anyways, its easier to rank a YouTube video than a website.
    And if your a in a niche with low competition, you will mostly pop on the first page and be one of the first entrys.

    A Youtube video is easier but it's not yours, they can take the page down any time, you're making google money and it's not a definitive solution. When you work on your own page, you can sell it, lend it, burn it, keep it, whatever.

    I can't really give you an exact method but, I would say going for PR2+ links would help. And besides, even if I knew an exact method, I don't think that there would be to many happy people here that work YouTube if I gave it all away. I know a little from what people talk about in my GSA SER Service Skype group, and that's about it.

    youtube video is of course easier, but when you have your own website you have bigger control over advertisements, content ownership, earnings, design, ads position, etc... so better spend a bit more time and build your own website.

    Why not try it?

    A youtube video will cost you nothing.

    A web page will cost $15 to get online.

    Try both, see what success you have.

    Yes, it is true.

    But you still need backlinks to get the top ranking at Google.

    Yeah, it does matters to get ranking on Google. The more views the higher it ranks, but make sure that views need to be real.
    Also make sure to get some likes and comments on there as well.

    See boss, it depends on the keyword you are targeting. A youtube video may come on top early but it wont give you conversions whereas a webpage may take more time but it will give you more revenue.

    If you have the opportunity, do both. I have had to, on several occasions, and it split about 50/50. Ranking a video in the top search result is actually quite difficult.

    yes. when we compared likes with views, likes are more important than views. For example, you get 100 views and 10 likes for an video is average. For other words, 100 views and 60 likes is looks good ratio for getting good ranking.
