    Youtube Ranking Optimization is definitely in its infancy and I have yet to see a comprehensive resource on the subject.

    Here’s what I’ve learned about youtube ranking optimization (Youtube SEO) or ranking higher on youtube itself:

    The youtube search engine uses three basic items to initially rank your video:

    • The title of your video
    • The description of your video
    • The tags that you assign to your video

    The title, description and the tags are very important for video optimization but a trick that you can use which can help you get more views, rank better on youtube and google and at the same time make your video appearing on many relevant videos is to make a video response with your video on a popular video on your niche, if you find a really popular video and with a video response make your video appearing bellow this video, you can get great results...

    Title is the most important thing in video optimization, assign tags carefully related to your video and add well written description.

    If you want to rank inside YouTube, you need to accumulate views. There are other factors but views is still the most important.

    Tags are probably the next most important thing.
    I would add one more thing to what everyone else said. Make sure to name your video files with your targeted keyword.

    For example, if you are targeting the keyword "iphone" make sure you name your video "apple-iphone.flv" or "apple-iphone-4s.flv"

    The reason I put flv is in case your videos are in flash format but if they are not, it's not a problem, just make sure to have the targeted keyword as the file name before you upload the video to YouTube as they also rank videos using the file name for relevancy.

    Here are a couple of other links that can help you optimize your videos for YouTube:

    share video on social media websites, specially on Google+ and orkut because they are owned by Google and get some +1s in Google+ with that video, it will generate some views and some likes also

    Ranking a youtube video must involve -
    *video optimization that includes correct keywords in title, description and metatags of a video

    *most importantly, more the number of video views, good rank it draw out

    *some other factors are comments(that obviously rises with number of views), number of shares, age of a video and inbound links.

    As everyone here mentioned, your keyword must be in the title and description of the video. Also try to share your video through social networks, to get some traffic.
