I tried to rank some youtube videos but I didn't succeed at it.

What is the most important part in ranking youtube videos in youtube's search?

Social Shares?
Backlinks?


And what about Google search?


Social Shares?
Backlinks?

        You don't need them. YouTube video isn't an article on some blog. Watch time and engagement in first few hours are important. Source: I have YouTube channel with over 200k subscribers and I have few semi-viral videos on another channel with almost no subscribers.

    Try and write at the least 200 words of content material. Use synonym and one-off keywords. For instance, in case your major key phrase is how one can Rank YouTube videos, some one-off keywords could be methods to rank YouTube movies in Google, the best way to get videos to show up in search engines, YouTube advertising, and many others. Do not USE reproduction content material.

      I can't even decipher that, let alone try and read it without laughing....

      You don't rank yt videos by doing anything except info data and total views.

      End of story.

      backlinks are useless unless the links get massive clicks and views.

      And anyone saying finding keywords is just a silliness wannabe-slop-ola.

      Seriously.

      If you have videos on dog training......isn't it obvious what you are targeting?!?!?!?

      Yeah....choose something like student loan for your dog videos.... you're sure to rank 'em!

      You can pump up views by sharing them in stragtegic places, like FB.

    it's all about your tags bro.

    The same short-tail keywords that you put in your title, tag them in the box below. What keywords are your competition using?

    In my opinion also YouTube improve his algorithm, so another very important thing for YouTube SEO is audience retention. This is how long people tend to watch your video. All right, so this is your average view duration. This is how much of the video people watch, and the higher the better. If someone watches the first ten seconds of your video and clicks away, that’s not very YouTube SEO friendly.

    First few hours after uploading are critical. Watch time and engagement (comments, likes, even dislikes) are two most important factors in my experience and for this, you need subscribers or you can bring external traffic (Reddit for example). Of course, you should optimize your title. More detailed you can read here https://selleratheart.com/rank-youtu...earch-results/ but as I said without initial traffic you can't expect much. YouTube likes fresh content.

    You need to rank the you tube at video submission sites. The more high is the DA better ranking your video will get.

    Your videos must have a good and relevant content. Video keywords, if you optimize for Video Keywords, you’ll also get targeted traffic to your video directly from Google’s first page. Just keep in mind that you don't have to use the same keyword twice and of course don't forget to add your social media accounts to your about page, your Facebook page or profile, Twitter and etc.

    Also, there are a lot of threads already existing on this, it's best to use the search function for this. For starters, you can read up on these threads:

    - Where do promote my youtube video?
