What kind of links work best for ranking YouTube videos?

0 votes
Do you use the same variety of backlinks for YouTube video as you would for a regular website? Or are there certain types that you should focus on?

Ranking a YouTube video is slightly different from ranking a standard web page based on my own experience.

When it comes to backlinks you can get away with using a lot more aggressive methods than you could when trying to rank a normal webpage. I'm not sure why but in Google, YouTube videos enjoy a degree of bias when it comes to spam backlinking.

The best kind of links are in context links within relevant articles. Also if you can embed your video into posts this also seems to help.

So if you have your own blog network you could use that along with web 2.0 and also use Link Emperor, Fightback Network, or Backlink Beast.

With youtube videos, you can use a blast of social bookmarkings to help boost its ranking.

Also you can order some fiverr gig to create and submit videos to other video sharing sites to create backlinks back to your youtube video.

Getting internal links to your channel can also help. You can do so by commenting on other popular videos.

I do normal backlinking for Youtube videos as what we all do for normal sites. Sometime it works well, sometime it just not.

I think the best backlinks in ranking your Youtube Video is via bookmarking and submitting XML Pad File to various shareware sites. But one of the biggest factor to rank a youtube video is based from your views, likes and comments. Don't fall to paid views as Google will knew how many seconds that your video being played. So find people to view your video of at least 40% of it. You can hire someone doing it via MicroWorker on other areas.
