    Youtube is a tough nut to crack these days, brand new algorithms and value pass along make it difficult as can be to get and maintain top video slots on Youtube, or to rank youtube videos for particular keywords.

    However, I've managed to work out some methods for "Pop Ranking" with youtube videos, essentially these are high SERP rankings that we will hold for only a short amount of time but by strategically placing that time we can make plenty of profit. I've not been able to rank 100% of my videos this way, yet I have gotten rankings more often than not, I believe I'm still missing one piece of the puzzle but over all the method works enough to bank on.

    As we know Youtube is a great way to quickly move in on a keyword bandwagon as it is instantly indexed and ranked, but unless you are the top (or on occasion top 2 - 3) videos then you have no chance of showing on the first page.

    Here is an example of a video I was able to make "Pop" for a short time:

    [​IMG]

    With in one hour of the video going live it was ranked as the number 2 listing for a popular product launch days after the product went live. So even after major SEO's posting review sites they worked on for days I was able to sneak in and take advantage of that traffic.

    Doing this on Youtube is fairly simple, they like to showcase these videos in a few different ways and being the newest video or the most "timed-watched" (not fake views, but real views that sit through and watch the entire video) help. For this method we are going to take advantage of being the newest video combined with a few on-page style factors that Youtube looks for:

    [​IMG]

    First and foremost comes your Title you will want your keyword, in this case "Backlink Automator Review" to be the very first thing in the title section, but you will also want to make sure you have something else in there, other keywords that no one else has. In my case I tend to use "Cobalt-Digital"

    Description:
    For the description you don't want to start off with your keyword right away again but you will want it in quotation marks in the very first line, I also think it's a good practice to try and add your other title words, in this case "Cobalt-Digital" in the description, in plain text, before your primary keyword. You will also want to, where possible, add in an authority related keyword that you aren't targetting. Since Backlink Automator is a tool that works in the same field as and was even (wrongly) compared too scrapebox that's what I chose to use.

    Outgoing Links:
    You will want at least 2 outgoing URL's, the first backlink should be a site you own and contain your keyword in the URL, this site should be validated with Google Authorship (preferably one built out with my http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo/509015-google-authorship-authority-method.html), and should linkback to the video, preferably via embed. The other one should be to an established site in your niche that has some authority.

    Keywords: You'll want to have your keyword phrase contained in here a few times, once fully "backlink automator review", once divided "backlink automator" "review", and once compressed "backlinkautomator", you'll also want one non mentioned keyword I usually tend to go for a negative one such as "scam", and your secondary title phrase in this "cobalt-digital"

    Video Content
    :
    As many people know Youtube scans the visual content of videos, they use this tool normally to check for copyright violation but after some testing I believe used in relation to checking for, and valuing, duplicate versus unique content. For this reason don't use someone else's video or a product promotional video. Take the time to record original content and aim to at least be a few minutes in length.

    Good Measures: At this point you should be good to go, however there are a few things that I like to do for good measure:


    • Add the youtube video to stumbleupon
    • Get some Time Watched Views (check out Big Buddy's service for these)
    • Make a squidoo page with content and the youtube page embeded

    As I said it's nothing full proof but it's what I've been using for a few different affiliate launches and it's worked more often than not - let me know your results!

    Haha, I wonder from who the 2nd movie on Google is :p You beat me there. Good job

    Edit: You've made any sales btw? I've only made one, so I'm guessing the product is not very good.

    I also suggest you put the 2 words from "Backlink Automator" seperately like "Backlink" "Automator" and (I'm not sure if it's true) you can add a CC file with your main keyword in it a couple of times to the video.

    Anything I review I actually take the time to buy and give an honest review of. In this case I felt the product was rubbish and advised people to not buy it and spend money on Scrapebox instead, even with that negitive review I still managed to somehow make a sale :p

    Also an interesting point about the close-caption file, I haven't really poked around with that, but I imagine it must be used in the same fashion that Alt texted of a website would be used so I will have to give that a try!

    Ye I've heard they are using a speak recognition software also now, and adding the subs is like the same. So if you have a video with a lot of talking you just adjust the CC file and put in the main keyword like 3 times on a random place. If there is no speaking or whatsoever you just make a blank one and put the keyword in there 1 time and upload it to youtube.

    Nice share, but I would like to see you do this with keyword that actually has some searching stats. The keyword you used has 0 monthly searches in a result list of 135k results, it is disappointment your video is not first position in google.

    Good luck with keywords that actually have some monthly searches...

    Monthly searches from the keyword tool won't show up for a word that has just popped. They are based on historical averages, if you read this product only launched less than a week ago so there were no historical searches for that keyword.

    Also youtube video results won't ever rank in first position. It's just not the done thing with google unless you are clearly searching for a video specifically.

    Yup, most of them have been "newsworthy" though in the sense that they were keywords that were rapidly growing at that time

    What I've found that works is getting the video blasted to wiki's and also on yahoo answers as credible answers to peoples questions.

    I have steady traffic from yahoo answers for a very competitive keyword and I am third video for keyword that gets 500k+ searches
