    Thanks for the links Linda!
    The reason I ask is because my competition has the 1st & 2nd organic results for my keyword and I believe that youtube video is the only way to crack the tops spots. That is my plan anyways.

    Re: Tips for ranking a youtube video for local search?

    I'm experimenting more and more with video SEO as it's provided great results thus far.

    IChris provided a lot of actionable tips in his post. One I would like to add is that you can also link videos together using annotations. For example, you could funnel link equity from a stronger but outdated video to a newer video by putting an annotated link for the viewer to click and Google to follow.

    Despite having low levels of engagement (shares, comments, +1s), I've still managed several first-page rankings for clients' videos and my own tutorial videos. I can't imagine not using such an effective, free resource.

    Now that Youtube channels are intimately connected to G+ pages, I have to believe that they will have an even stronger impact on organic ranking. The ability to now add channel managers and change ownership of channels is a big bonus.

    Here is a link for some advanced YT ranking tips from SMX 2013. Video SEO FTW!
