Hello, wasn't sure where to add this thread but Ive got a problem with ranking my videos.
So, Ive added couple of videos with game hack niche (8-9 videos) and only one of them ranked, the one that had no comments, likes and views added by me it just ranked itself.
First thing that I'm doing to try to rank my video is looking for keywords. I dint use any website to get my kw i just enter the keywords that I think would work into the search bar on you tube and then I use VidIQ to check search volume and competition.
When I got my keywords I start typing the description of the video and I always include couple of keywords in the description as well as in the title of the video.
And now when my video is uploaded I am not sure of what actions I should take in order to get results in ranking my video.
What I used to do was go to qqtube get 5k views 200-300 likes and sometimes 50 comments from seoclerk.
Can anyone suggest what I am doing wrong or what could I do to rank my vids?

You're on point but missing video embeds and social signals. After doing all you did, add some backlinks with social signals depending on the niche competition. Between, make sure the views you purchase is high retention and should be drip-feed. No need to rush it and do not forget to fix all vidIQ recommends.

That's how i rank mine.

First of all, thank you for your reply. I have to say that I am a total noob.
I am not sure if I understand, could you explain to me what: video embeds, drip-feed means and I'm also not sure on how to fix vidIQ recommends.
Sorry to bother you with so many questions, just had enough of trying but not working out just don't want to give up since I`ve already started.

Embedding your video on web2.0 blogs posts is video embeds, you'll see lot of services on here or Fiverr/Seoclerks too. Drip-feeding is making sure the links are not done in a day or 2, meanwhile, it may be other way round for you but building links over a longer period works for me. You can find such services online too. I guess you already have vidIQ on your Chrome, all errors in red are what you need to fix while those highlight in green are good to go.

I am still unsure about Embedding videos but I will do my research about that. I've found a website that is called dripfeedlinks.co is that one of the services that you were talking about? I don't have any experience with backlinks so I have no idea how it works.
Oh so with vidIQ you were talking about the video optimization checklist, I've never tried that before so I'm guessing that could help.
Thanks for your help mate!
BTW which yt views and comment provider would you recommend? I don't know where to find good comments, I used to buy them from seockerk but they look awfully fake

YouTube SEO guy here. There's a couple things you're doing wrong.

First off, paying for traffic doesn't work. Period. YouTube isn't stupid and they know if you do this. They won't ban you outright, but it won't affect your SEO.

The only two things you need to know for YouTube SEO are CLICK THROUGH RATE, and RETENTION RATE.

If you can't improve these, it doesn't matter.

Might I ask what your CTR is for these videos? If it's under 8% that's likely your problem right there.

I am new to youtube too.

I'm willing to comment on competitors video, not meaningless comment, ask or answer relative comments.

Is that will work to bring more views?

I saw your thread about YT, killer thumbnail, great titles& tags, engaging content, these are the suggestion we should do. So you think no need to boost the first video ranking?

The most views i got is 400+ views, with several comments. Only get 4 orders right now.

I want to 100 times of this number, did not know how, and searching online the method.

Someone suggest to reply the comments that creator ignored. But can not make our comments on top is meaningless if there has hundreds or thousands comments.

And i thought to build accounts pyramid (someone suggest for pinterest), to like, sub and create comments by the child accounts. But if YT found that are fake, ban my channel. All the effort are wasted. Do you think it's a good way to boost the first video?

I tried to optimized the title, tags, LSI tags, every day only add several views. Or just need to be patient to create more videos? I uploaded 7 videos.
