    So how exactly does it work?

    How does google determine to show a youtube video on google?

    To rank a video on google, shouldnt backlinks be enough? Or do you need views/comments etc even to rank on google?

    On google, backlinks are enough, but views and likes most certainly help.

    In my experience YT video should be on pages 1-2 in Youtube so it can be ranked on Google 1 page!

    A video of mine is sitting at #1-#2 in Youtube, and #8-#9 on Google with lots of plays but only 3-4 backlinks I'm aware of. All about keyword competition.

    But would it be possible for a pretty fresh video with 10 views to get to the top of google with just backlinks? Anyone got experience with that?
