    Hey there, YouTube marketers.

    I've been into YouTube for some time now, and i'm here to share what i know about YouTube Ranking in the past, if you also have any suggestions, feel free to comment.


    The first thing you would want to do it make sure you have your keyword in every place of your video.

    The Tags
    If your niche is "free dating" then make sure to write it in the tags like this:

    The Title
    The title is also very important make sure you don't put to many keywords in your title, do NOT do it like this:
    The correct way to do this:
    Bonus:
    Sometimes i used a little trick to make the video more attractive by adding a symbol, example:

    The Description
    The description is used for ranking but it is also used to attract people to finish your video.
    Make sure all your keywords are in the description, example:

    Do NOT spam all your tags in the description, this will make you unprofessional.

    Backlinking
    I used to back-link my video's with social-bookmarks (i'm sure you can find plenty of cheap back-linkers at this forum).
    And this helped me A LOT I used to rank to the first place, just with the social book-markings (back-links).
    At this moment i am trying to rank with SEnukeX but i do not have the results yet so i'll update later.

    If you have all that, here is something else that can help you, that I've found recently:
    The video that ranked first at the time of my testing had the following statistics:
    224,000 views
    62 ratings (4 out of 5 rating out of 62 total ratings)
    49 comments
    Favorited 566 times
    Been around since October of 2006

    Well optimized title (used the target keywords in the title)
    Average description (I think it could have been more elaborate.)
    Descriptive tags
    7100 channel views
    236 subscribers

    8 videos in channel (several had over 100,000 views)
    17 inbound links to the video page
    Last logged in 11 months ago... (interesting)


    The video that ranked second had the following statistics:
    24,233 views
    11 ratings (4.5 out of 5 rating, but only out of 11 total ratings)
    9 comments
    Favorited 35 times
    Been around since October of 2008
    Well optimized title
    Thorough description (although it ends up sounding somewhat spammy near the end.)
    Descriptive tags
    11,000 channel views
    223 subscribers
    20 videos in channel (all with decent views)

    11 inbound links to the video itself
    Last logged in 2 days ago (ah, much more active)

    The video that ranked third had the following statistics:
    16,137 views
    6 ratings (3.5 rating, but only out of 6 total ratings)
    10 comments
    Favorited 31 times
    Been around since June of 2008
    Decent title, but not optimized for instruction...
    Average description (it could have been more descriptive and focus more on instruction)
    Only a few tags...and "swing" or "club" weren't part of the tags.
    172,241 channel views
    2099 subscribers
    310 videos in channel (with varying levels of views and ratings)
    8 inbound links
    Last logged in 10 hours ago (ah, even more active)


    Myths

    Wiki Back-links
    I heard somewhere that Wiki back-links are working very good now, for Youtube ranking, i will update when i know more about it!

    I hope this helps, and if you have any questions, or other working methods, or if i forgot something, please comment and i'll update my post.

    Yes, views,likes,subs play also a role of the ranking, but i don't like faking it, so i'm talking about starting a WhiteHat (only the backlinks are blackhat) YouTube Video.

    does backlinking help rank the vid within youtube?

    or do you backlink so that you rank in G to kickstart the initial traffic?
    with this traffic you get the views, likes, comments, etc. to rank in youtube

    It helped me to rank within youtube.
    But there's been some changes in the search engine so i'm not sure if it's still working. I'm going to try the Wiki backlinks soon!

    I have a tip to share:

    I noticed that youtube is giving now some love for edu backlinks.

    I ranked a youtube video ONLY by creating 10 edu backlinks.

    It ranked in 1 week and the edu backlinks were contextual backlinks from edu blog posts.

    Hope this help!
