    About a month or so ago I reviewed a posting on here (can't find it for the life of me) in regards to a technique/strategy that would rank your videos higher than your competitors based on similar keywords. Does anyone know what that was?

    Not sure what the method was but YT has been updated so you can not see the keywords other people use.

    There's no magic to rank your videos...
    -SE Optimized title (not too long, not too short... include your main keywords)
    -SE Optimized description (write a long one but do not stuff your keywords all over the place - be smart)
    -SE Optimized keywords (write as many as you can but only related to your video)
    -Promote your videos on social sites/forums (optional)

    To boost views use Vagex (Pro account) and let it run 24/7 on your VPS.

    If you make quality videos, you shouldn't have any problems and your videos will all rank naturally.
    Oh, by the way, there are dozens of such threads that have already been posted before so next time use the search function.

    Tazplay,

    Kkll78,

    As far as optimization, there are the typical things like including keywords in description, title and tags. You can also make the file name of the video your target keyword. Another method to get more exposure is to create a video response with your video on another video on youtube. Do it on something relevant to your video and that also has a ton of views if possible.

    Also (and this requires a modest investment) but you can use promoted videos to get more views. Its very effective.

    More info on search index for videos,

    Leaving a video response,

    Hope that helps you,

    There are lots of them to do:

    1. Optimize your title and tags
    2. Embed your video on sites.
    3. Grow your likes, fav, sub, views naturally.
    4. Rank them on Google using back links, more exposure and means to get the social signals for almost free (likes, fav, sub, views, e.tc.
    5. Share them on social network site from time to time.

    Exactly. Also as TheContentAuthority said you should name your video files as the keyword. Maybe it works maybe it's just juju but it only takes 2 seconds. Addig views and comments etc (I mean buying them... but make sure you're safe) can also help! A ton actually.

    If you want to rank youtube videos in google you should build a lot of web 2.0 with your video embed. After this you can use scrapebox to blast those web 2.0.
