    For years I've done youtube videos for fun, but I always ended up getting frustrated with the lack of views. My biggest video ever was a 40 second comedy short that hit 100 thousand views in a little under two years. I had a few accounts where I slowly reached over 1000 subscribers. Anyone who has ever done youtube knows how hard it is to get noticed. Does SEO work with Youtube videos? I've had a few blogs and SEO work did wonders for getting traffic. But can the same be done with videos with the same effect?

    Yes it can help. If you do a bit of keyword research and include your phrase in your title, description and get a few backlinks with proper anchor text you will show up in Google. Also if you have another related video to promote you can use the description and proper anchor text in it to link to your related video.
