Hello there!

I know I don't post here a lot but I have a question right now about ranking on YouTube.

Do backlinks leave a huge impact at ranking your YouTube video on YouTube or not? I'm only interested to rank my video on YouTube, not Google.

I know that views, likes, comments boost your rankings but do backlinks boost your rank as well?

Thank you!

    Backlinks to YouTube videos seems to help me. Between view, likes and backlinks several of my videos are ranking high and can also be found on page one of Google for certain keywords. So I'd say yes backlinks help increase YouTube rankings as well as Google.

    David,

    I don't see how you can limit the benefits of backlinks to YouTube only, as Google loves YouTube and if you are getting YouTube juice from backlinks you will automatically experience an increase in Google listing rank.

    I heard somewhere that ranking youtube videos is like what it used to be in ranking web pages. Is it true that you can send mass backlinks to youtube videos to help them go up the youtube ranks?

    Yes david it does help in certain cases, if the backlinks done in a proper manner. As long as those backlinks are relevant they do work on youtube.

    Definitely, as others have already said.

    And with YouTube you need FAR LESS backlinks than with a typical site due to its authority. You can take a video to page 1 pretty quickly with very little effort. I've got plenty sitting in the top 3 that took almost no effort. And most are consistently bringing traffic to my landing pages.

    Good on-page of a YouTube video in many cases is enough to get a top ranking (depends on competition). Yes, backlinks help. Of course they do!

    NO, sorry backlinks would not help you rank on Youtube and avoid Google ranking.If you rank on Youtube, you should expect ranking on Google too.

    Absolutely they do.

    And hear is a tip (throw fiverr gigs at your videos and watch em soar).

    I do not generally promote fiverr gigs for anything as most are pretty crappy but they work very well for videos.
