Default What Are The Main Factors Affecting Youtube Video Ranking?

Hi All,

These days i am doing some researches on Youtube Video Ranking. By searching and reading some online materials, it is said that Youtube changed its ranking agorithm till 2012 Aug. They have changed to more focusd on video watch time length than simply click rate, which makes sense to me.

But some of my colleagues thought this should not be the main factor but due those video backlinks. To prove this, i made a testing. By checked through 10 videos ranking, i have found that videoA which is ranked in #3 has 0 backlinks, while the one ranked in #10 has 4 backlinks. So i don't think the backlinks are the thing.

So what is your idea about Youtube Ranking? What are the factors that could affect Youtube video ranking?

Thanks!

Hi, they may not belong to the same category. For example, you are searching the keyword "website health checker", then you'll get a list out, right?

So i am just wondering what are the main factors affecting the result ranking? By searching and reading some online materials, it is said that Youtube changed its ranking agorithm till 2012 Aug. They have changed to more focusd on video watch time length than simply click rate.

And i do not think this is the only factor, however, i am not sure what are the other factors. Any ideas?

Thanks!

According to me video ranking depend on view because we notice many times that if view rate is higher than other than youtube suggest at the home page (when you are opening youtube.com). And keyword in title will also effects because if any one search for them then youtube will suggest and by this number of view will increase quickly.

Thanks

small thing. Your video content must informative for users. So, users want to see your video. When you get users for your video than this video rank high easily.

Your video must has proper title and other description that will help to user to understand the things of video.

I think YouTube ranking depends on the number of views to a particular video rather then time frame of the video.

Main important factors of Youtube video has been bookmarked, viewed and voted and made your video by other user. These factors are great way to get more traffic.

Default SEO for Youtube

Youtube does not care how many views your video has.

The goal of Youtube is to create a live media channel,
(think next generation tv).

Number of channel subscribers and time spent following through
to your videos holds the highest weight.

As all things google, backlinks also matter a lot.
Point other videos with a link to your Youtube video to achieve faster ranking results.
