    What is most important in video ranking except tags, description and title? Views? Likes? Amount of comments?

    Ranking videos on YouTube has gotten harder throughout the past few months, however it's still possible to do it overnight. All you need is a correct Title, Description, and Tags. Also, Views and Likes combined help allot - That will rank your video within 2 days.

    You're not going to be able to re-name it through your Google+ account to your keyword. You need to do it on your actual channel. I'd recommend creating a new account if possible.

    I have three questions...

    1. Would you recommend putting the "Extra Tags:" in the description? It looks bad but I don't know if it works.

    2. Should you wait before adding views/likes to a video, or can you just blast it with HR views straight away?

    3. How well do social signals work for videos? Can they be a deciding factor in video ranking?

    1. No; because YouTube removes videos like that if you flag them. (Against their TOS)

    2. No need for waiting, blasting newer videos will rank them faster and higher.

    3. They don't factor in YouTube rank; however, they do factor in Google rank.

    Yes , spammy links actually work for YouTube videos, unlike with websites. I'd suggest fiverr, though you could use any link building software you'd like!

    Do you mean backlinks actually help rankings in Youtube? I was always under the impression they only helped with a video's ranking in Google...

    I have a question?

    How do you get any type of video (music, movie trailer...etc.) uploaded and monetized with getting the dreaded message "matched third party"?

    Thanks!

    I haven't been able to get passed that. Though I have noticed that song songs don't get caught while some do. If you have audio editing software, I've heard of people changing the pitch just a little bit, and that gets past YouTube.

    Is the ripped video has the same possibility to rank in high positions as unique video or unique video is easier to rank?
