This video shows how I ranked a YouTube video to #2 on Google in less than 5 hours, in doing this I claimed the top 3 spots instead of just the first. I simply optimized the file for the keywords I wanted to target, making sure to use LSI versions throughout for broader rankings. I then loaded it on my YouTube channel and let IFTTT syndicate the video on about 4 high PA web 2.0 properties. I haven't done any linking to the video and I'm ranking #2 for a term that the Moz toolbar shows as 34% difficulty.
The Moz Page authority or PA of my YouTube channel is 47, this is a measurement of the popularity and power of a certain page on a website. The video is also embedded in 3-5 high PA web 2.0 sites. These are sub domains of large websites, wordpress, weebly, and tumblr. I have these set up in an IFTTT account so its automatic and has a powerful effect on any video I upload to my account. For services that can help bit.ly/houtsmarket I can create your ifttt network for you or post your videos on my powerful web 2.0 network.
