How to use Youtube video for SEO?

I have noticed that many website has videos and are ranked on the first page of the Google search engine. So, I followed them and submitting my videos to Youtube and also generate links to get the video on the top rankings but after a long period of time my Youtube video is not even shown in search engine results. So I would like to ask that what SEO technique should be adopted to ranked the video on Google.

Youtube is yet another site provided by GOOGLE, so it is like a obvious thing that it gets more importance, AS Google is now a days promoting G+ as major Social Networking Platform. How to use Videos, here is how:

  1. You can share your single video on different sites, as it never involve in duplicate issue.
  2. Use all the terms, like title, description, meta tags, meta description. Every site has this feature and allow you to put all this information. (Try To use unique content for this)
  3. Along with this, video sites also allow to have a link back to your site, it increase number of backlinks.

You can’t set any SEO benefits from YouTube videos. If you link your content in videos, then that’ll be nofollow, so no link juice is passed. You can create videos, put in links in the videos and use them to drive traffic. The more videos you put out the better.

Please read the question carefully before replying.
