    Does building back links to youtube videos actually increase it's ranking in the youtube search results page? Can anyone confirm this? I just want to be sure before I spend money building links to a vid.

    It definitely helps in Google's search, which is sometimes even better. If it raises in Google's SERPs, then it gets more views, which in turn equals higher Youtube rankings.

    backlinks are a very good tactic and dont forget that youtube and google search engines are related, so the more information that google can find about your youtube video on the internet, the more ranked your video will be.

    good point and very logic - even if YouTube doesn't count backlinks as a ranking factor, most of the time backlinks will give the better position in Google for the video, which will bring more views and that will suggest Youtube to psition your video higher on YT search.
