    Exactly how does youtube's search results system work? I've got a video that started out on the 6th page for my keywords. Got it to the 2nd page, but now it keeps climbing and falling. I am being beat by videos on the first page, even though I have more views, comments, likes, better keyword optimization (title, description, and tags), and my video is older. I checked for back links on the videos, but the majority don't have any. Is there some other factor for ranking on Youtube?

    YT gives a lot of weight on sudden view spikes and as well to the number of likes and favs that's why people buys YT views because it helps rank vids on 1st page search results.

    Youtube has a funny ranking system but an exact science for tags is non existent that and titles you can't say have better tags you might think they are but there is no way to prove it for some videos just the exact keyword and/or phrase is best for tags for some alot of tags is better also the title of videos plays a much bigger role than people realize try remaking the same video a couple of times with different titles and tags and then will have alot better chance of getting number 1 also the age of the videos and the accounts is a factor.

    you dont even need to research about this allot, just look at "video marketing blaster", its an automated software that with a few clicks will get an serie of high ranked keywords for your video ;) it also includes other inbuilt tools. :)
