    A backlink is just when someone links to your page from theirs, so yes they're legal and I'd imagine they'd be effective in improving how your videos rank.

    In terms of getting backlinks, you can search the forum to find tons of info on how to do that

    The best backlinks are created organically by people loving your content so much that they link to it or share it with their network.

    It gets tricky when you try to artificially create backlinks (i.e. buying them off sites like or using tools to build them).

    Bloggers used to do this to game the system and rank higher in Google, but then Google came out with an algorithm update that wiped those guys out.

    Google owns YouTube, so I'd be careful about buying backlinks because their search engines work in a similar way.

    If you build artificial backlinks the wrong way then you can get penalized or possibly get your channel banned.

    The long-term approach is to focus on creating great content and having calls-to-actions to share or using content lockers to force social shares.

    I'm sure there are other ways, too. But that's my take on it.

    As peoples are suggesting to use tool for building links. So I think building links via tools will helps. Natural links give more value so try to build natural links.

    Instead of thinking of them as back links just promote your channel online in the places where your audience resides. The byproduct will be links pointing to the channel. Some of them will be no follow links but this doesn't matter if they bring you traffic.

    Write some catchy title for your video.
    Let your description be summarised and understandable to the person watching.
    Content should be great to watch and not long enough to get bored.
    Ask the user to subscribe to your channel.

    Getting backlinks to your YouTube videos may be a little challenging, but setting up a blog and posting genuine comments to other blogs in your niche, linking up to blog posts with your YT video embeds, that can work. Key is to build bonds by posting genuine comments on top blogs from your niche. Always make it about service; give value through your videos and blog posts, generously build friendships by helping out folks from your niche and you will get backlinks eventually.

    YouTube is the very popular site for watching and sharing video, this is why here competition is very high to rank up a video or a channel. But some tricks might be very very helpful to do it, these are:

    -Use keywords, go to your competitor's video and go into the source code by pressing "ctrl+u" and copy keywords whatever added there. So take it from 2 or three videos.
    -If your video is interesting then there no need to use keywords but use of keyrds is good practice.
    -Share you channel in different social site where exist more user.

    -Share your YouTube content in Facebook, twitter, G+ etc places.

    -Reddit also works great, in gaming section you can put your link, that also bring more traffic to your channel.

    -You can make blog for your video, it can gives you more backlinks.

    -Normal video is not worth here so make it in a professional way.
    -Run PPC for your video if you want quick result.
    -Use keywords in title and in description, oh another thing is make nice description so that audience can read it and can understand what actually video about.
    -Definitely use nice thumbnail.

    Like most members here are pointing to backlinks to rank and get traffic.

    I think the better way to spend your time is to gather a list of authority channels in your niche and try to comment on videos that are published by them.

    This not only gets you traffic but also build authority to your channel.

    Make sure that you have engaging videos published on your channel.
