The Ultimate Guide on How To Rank Your YouTube Video No. 1 in Google

  1. 1. Your UltimateGuide To Rank Your YouTubeVideos No. 1 In Google
  2. 2. On Page factors Factors you can influence directly on YouTube
  3. 3. Your YouTube channelCreate for each blog a separate YouTubeaccount.If you have for example a blog about “losingweight in 30 days” then try to call it this,Weight Loss in 30 days or something similar.This helps with the ranking in the searchengines because your keyword is alreadyselected in the YouTube account andtherefore, Google “knows” what it is about.
  4. 4. Title of your videosThe title of your video is the most importantfeature for search engine optimization.It’s the most important “On Page”(on the site)optimization factor.Add the keywords to your titleIf your video is about “losing weight in 30days” then your title should be similar or thekeyword should be “built into” the title.
  5. 5. A small side note:Before you are aiming at a specific keyword search, try to search for it byyourself. If your video is e.g. about “making money online” and you havevideos with 20,000 + views from YouTube accounts that have beenaround for years, then you will have it really hard to rank for that keyword.At this point you may want to consider key phrases that are perhapslonger or more specific, and don’t have so much competition.For researching keywords I use Market Samurai. I get a lot of otherpotential keywords delivered this way which I can use and have all thedata at a glance. Nobody really needs Market Samurai but it makes thelives of everyone who wants to make money on the Internet much easier.
  6. 6. The description of your video The description of your video is the second most important “On Page” factor for your video. Whatever you insert in the description – first, use your keyword and then the URL of your video. Then you can also mention the keyword again without fearing a degradation of Google.
  7. 7. Tags to describe your video Another important factor for the On Page optimization is the use of tags. Use as many as you can. Search for videos about your topic and look at what tags are used. Create a list and use them for your video. The more specialized the better. Always remember that YouTube is just a search engine for videos. The more tags you use, the easier YouTube can “read” your video and recommend it to other visitors.
  8. 8. Off Page factorsFactors that effect the ranking of your video outside of YouTube
  9. 9. ViewsIn order to rank higher than your competitors, you need to have morepeople who have seen your videos. The odds are good if you have morepeople viewing your video than your competitors, then you will be classified“as important” and appear higher in the search results.On sites like ““, views can be purchased for $5. But you shouldmake sure that your views are growing slowly and that you don’t get 10,000views in three hours.Ultimately, I rather recommend you to promote your own video. A wellmade and interesting video is often viewed and shared with friends. Sendthe video to your email list (I use Aweber), and link it in forums to relevantarticles or load it up on other sites. This way you build up not only morebacklinks, but also you will get real people who are interested in your videoand watch it.
  10. 10. You can also work at additional viewsAnyone can log in to sites like, or Vagex and collect “likes” and “views”.The principle is simple. You subscribe and then you add yourvideos. The more videos you look at from others (you’ll justhave to open the “look through”) the more points you get whichyou can use for your own videos. This is similar to the principleof Stumble Upon. I’ve often thought that I get more traffic fromthat site when I look at a few pages they offer me before.
  11. 11. Likes & SubscribeYou can also use the above services to getmany subscribers, likes, and comments onyour videos.Of course, try to make it look as natural aspossible. These techniques are not illegal butthey are trying to “fool” the YouTube systemand because of this you have to be cautious.
  12. 12. Embed your video on other sitesThe purpose of social media is of course sharing. If your video is embedded on othersites, it’s considered by the webmaster to be valuable. So you can still do somethingfor your ranking. Don’t just embed your video on your blog, and your Facebook site, orother Web 2.0 sites, but also on the following video sharing sites: The good thing about these sites is that you are just using your YouTube code: copy and paste. There are pages with high PageRank, much traffic, and a contribution to a good ranking.
