    Do backlinks from other websites back to your YouTube videos help them rank?

    Yes they do. If the youtube videos link to related topic and uses the same kind of keywords.

    I can advice to look for Jeff Johnson as he is "the guru" when it comes to youtube videos and rankings. He have some free stuff out online that is very good and if you follow it you do get better results than before.

    I've actually done the opposite and used youtube to help get traffic to my sites and blogs. ;)

    That works too.

    Youtube is a big part of my marketing! All of my videos link back to my site. I also link keywords in my blog posts that are relevant to particular videos back to said video. I also often embed a video into a blog post.

    I recently added adsense to my youtube videos and have discovered that is yet another stream of income for me!

    I figureed out the answer to this. Backlinks will post it but having the Tags you use also play a VERY big part on your ranking.
    I now rank 2nd for my keywords ;)

    Well done with th ranking. Let me know if I have missed anything in the list below.

    Some advice re videos that I got from Jeff Johnson:
    1. name your video file you upload using your primary keyword eg. "6packabstrainingguide.mp4"
    2. Your video title should contain primary and secondary keywords if possible. Use full headline/title allocation
    3. Add tags or keywords to help video get found as the search engine uses them to classify the video.
    4. Description - Use natural description with primary and secondary and related keywords.
    5. Add in annotations to engage audience and link to other videos or to website.
