Ranking local Youtube videos

16 replies
Does anyone know how to determine when it not a good idea to try and rank a video for a niche at the local level? I did one for city+ cremation and it ranked in days. I tried the same for city+ seo and no results. Just wondering if their are certain niches that are tough to impossible to get page one videos.

    It really depends on the competition of the keywords. Small town chinese food is going to be a lot easier to rank than New York hotels or something like that.

    Generally the large cities are going to be harder to rank.

    PM or skype (chasthrpr) me about your method.

    There are probably some extra white hat things you can try.

    It all depends upon your methods.
    I live in a town of at least 500k.... my video shot to the top for city + seo, and seo + city within 15 minutes of posting.

    It is still there.

    Great listings, get great results.

    It just depends upon your methods.

    Getting a video to rank for a local client is fairly easy. Like in your first case, it will sometimes do it by itself (assuming you SEO the video properly). Other times it requires some extra work (linking, pinging, etc.).

    I just released a WSO that goes step by step how to rank a video to page one, even with tougher keywords.

      Video ranking is way easier, just throw some diverse back links at it for a month it will get there. Seo was probably a term that google didn't feel relevant enough to show a video for on a local level.

        I think you are right PaulJames,

        Google does not like SEO techniques, as we are gaming THEIR system!

        This is evidenced by trying to get a SEO Professional service (working out of their home) ranked in Google Places, as compared with using the exact same techniques to rank a Locksmith service (also working out of his home) in Google Places.

        Even using a video to rank, it's always going to be more of an unhill struggle to rank a SEO Service in Google. (Google has told us many, many times that they don't like us!)

        Throwing some backlinks at the video is a good idea. The title and subtitle of the video are critical as well. There are other ninja moves that will help out too. There are many, many little things you can do to a video to shoot it to page one of the SERPS much faster than a web site.

        Done right however, the web site is more likely to "stick" once it gets to page one through shrewd SEO techniques......

        Happy SEOing to you all.

        Dale

    Does Google always put videos on page 1? I see no others on the page so maybe it is more than an SEO issue.

    Try social networking. Sometimes this does wonders in the locality.

    Here is some very useful tips for video promotion, about title and description and optimization of video. If you are targeting a high competitive keywords for video promotion then , it will take time to rank, video promotion is same like site promotion ,as we do lots of activities for our site to be rank on desired keywords, we need to do same for Video submitting URL.

      The only thing I know is that Google has attach much importance to YouTube videos or other popular video-sharing websites'videos. Of course, the competition of keywords matters more or less.

    Youtube Ranking Optimization (YRO) is definitely in its infancy and I have yet to see a comprehensive resource on the subject, so I have decided to coin the new phrase "Youtube Ranking Optimization (YRO)" and start the ball rolling

    Please note:
    as of today a search for "youtube ranking optimization" (youtube seo) on both Yahoo and Google yields zero results; let's see if we can work together and develop the science of ranking higher on youtube!

    Up until now I've pretty much ignored youtube for many reasons, but mostly because I just never took the time out of my schedule to work with my staff on it.

    The first step in this process is to think about the words users would type into the YouTube search box to find your video. Choosing relevant keywords can help you get your video content in front of interested users.



    Remember, users are searching for video content, so they're less likely to look for something to buy on YouTube than they are on a search engine. Users search for topics related to what entertains them, so choose your keywords accordingly:

    Ranking videos is determined more by title of video and the amount of likes and views..
