    Good information! How do we get out video to show along other popular videos with the same method?

    A very informative read and no doubt very useful to a lot of people on here, me included! You really did do your homework for this post and I thank you for the time you took in researching and testing different methods of SEO optimization for YouTube videos. There are dozens of video tutorials out there but I have never seen someone go into as much detail as you have!

    Very good writeup...a very scientific approach!

    One follow up question...how long did you wait after changing tags/descriptions before seeing a change in your videos search rankings? I've always wondered how quickly YT updates that info once you change a video.

    I just tried your experiment on a week old video of mine. Revamped the title, descriptions, and tags for 2-3 phrases (or tags as you called them). Then i checked my rankings on these 2-3 tag phrases and in 24 hours there has been absolutely no change in the search results. These phrases were and still are ranked at 9, 12, 20th.

    There must have been other factors at play regarding your result changes. Unless it takes more than 24hrs for YT's search results to update...but I've posted this question a few different places and no one seems to know about this question.

    Interesting to note about the position in the description. I try to have more detailed descriptions now, about the game, the directors, release dates, all of that, to try to maximize phrases and keywords associated with the game without spamming. I haven't been consistent with it and have only been trying for a couple weeks, but I'm curious if it'll help drive traffic in the long run.
