    Hey guys, I jumped in youtube marketing recently been confused as to how seo works IN youtube. I saw my competitor on page and everything is optimized better than his but yet I am ranked on page 11 of youtube. Right now I have 1147 views and still pumping views. As of now in order for me to beat him/her do I simply get more views and likes than them? I understand it is all about high retention views now.

    Can someone please kindly explain?

    You need high retention views for making your video come to top on that niche.Some balanced amount of "HIGH RETENTION VIEWS + LIKES + COMMENTS" will do your work :)

    You will need high retention views for your video.
    Then make your video more social (social signal = google +, twitter, facebook like, fb share)
    Optimization of course

    Here's how to rank a video in YouTube and Google.

    1) sign up for vagex (you'll want views, do something like 200+ views per day)
    2) buy any sort of backlinks that you want. I usually buy links on fiverr. (forum submissions, profile links, blog posts) diversify in your link types. don't spend much money.
    3) wait...

    Honestly, you'll raise to the top of YouTube in a matter of a few days and then to the top of Google in even less time. I've done it time and time again!

    Any vagex alternative? They do not give me the views they have claimed to have given.

    Scrapebox is more blog commenting but it has other features which are useful though.

    Right click on the Video Page of your competitors and see what tags they are using, also check out Social Blade to see the Social engagement of the video.

    Add more retention views and likes.
    Also make sure you don't forget comments and social signals. Check your competitors in ahrefs to see how many social signals they have and try to outrank them.

    Can I point my backlinks to a tier 1 first and embed and link to my video? Or should I point my backlinks directly to the video?

    Hey,

    So I get this question a lot from my clients and its really not that difficult to be honest. People tend to over think things and to over complicate things... This does not only hold true for YouTube ranking, but for pretty much anything in life.

    Here are a few questions I get often along with their answers. Also, will post some SEO tips on how you can rank high.

    How many links can safely be built to a brand new video on a brand new channel?


    The amount of links doesnt really matter to be honest as they don't all get indexed at once. It does take time. For instance, I have ranked highly competitive videos with just a few views, comments, favourites, likes and social bookmarks.


    Social indicators vs. high pr backlinks, what is more important?


    Both are important, but since YouTube is owned by Google, they are putting more and more emphasis on Social Signals. I'd say mix em up!


    Should I build tiered links to a youtube video or just tier 1 links?


    Again, since YouTube is already an Authority and its not like its going to penalize itself, doesnt matter here. What I would suggest you do however is make use of URL shortening services. By that I mean, when you do backlinking, you need to use all these different "short versions" of your YouTube URL so that it looks more natural instead of just linking all the links to your normal video URL.


    Are views and/or subscribers important when ranking a youtube video in google?


    Retention views are important, but I always suggest to sprinkle regular non retention views in there as well because, lets be honest, not every single user ALWAYS watches the entire video. Subs does help to a certain extent with regards to Authority, but I would suggest sending some links to your Channel as well as your Vids.

    Further to this, here are some further tricks on how to get your videos ranking well.

    1. Make sure you add your Keyword(s) to the Title TWICE (MUCHO important), i.e "How to pick up chicks - Learn the art of picking up chicks"

    2. Add your keyword(s) to the description. Do not overdo it and make sure you have 400 - 500 words of content.

    3. Add your keywords and a combo of them as TAGS. Copy your competitor's tags (TIP: Right Click - View Source - Search for "Keywords" and go to the second batch to see ALL their tags. Copy and paste the 20 most relevent ones to your video.

    4. Make sure you name the video file using your keyword(s).

    5. If possible, make your channel name the same or similar to your keyword(s) - This is a ninja tip :)

    6. Send a combo of regular and retention views. Why? Well, realistically even "Gangnam Style" with its 1 Billion + views didnt have PERFECT retention.

    7. Send further social signals such as Likes, Dislikes, Comments, Favs and Subs to the video and channel.

    8. Send Social Bookmarks to your video. Do not worry about too many here as YouTube is an authority in itself.

    That's pretty much what you need to do to rank well. Trust me... Keep it simple and you'll be GOLDEN.

    Best of luck and blessings.

    Hope this helps you out and best of luck.
