    I have no idea how to optimise videos well within YouTube (have heard lots of bits and pieces about views, the benefit of actually writing out the words contained in the video, etc.), but you could probably do well relatively easily in the normal SERPs by simply building a few links to your video.

    Although YouTube isn't the only option in video distribution, it's hard to deny that if YouTube was a search engine, it'd be the number two search engine in the world behind Google.
    A strong argument could be made for producing and optimizing video for SEO results, especially if you think about how much time you devote to content marketing to garner rankings for web pages. Given the amount of competition on the written web, ranking for video in YouTube may be much easier and -- as an added bonus -- top spots in YouTube often mean equally attractive position in Google's universal search results.
    Optimizing YouTube Videos for SEO
    The YouTube algorithm relies on three signals when ranking your videos within YouTube's search results:

    1. Text in your titles and descriptions.
    2. Number of views, and recent trending.
    3. Ratings.

    Make a video that doesn't suck.

    You know how videos get to be top ranking on YouTube? **** tons of views in a short period of time. You know how that happens? Videos people find compelling enough to share with their friends.
    You could re-name a top Youtube Video "random video abc123" and it would still hit the top.
    Of course making your video easy to find by using a good description as the title helps.

    Spread word of the video though all your existing channels. Let anyone already following your brand know it is there.

    From my personal experience I can say that it is really necessary to embed the youtube code or post your video url wherever possible - in your social nets, blog, leave the link on forums or blog comments if it is relevant to the discussed topic of course. It guarantees you the increase in views. And sure, don't make crap videos, try your best to make it as perfect as you can.

    You can share your videos in various video sharing sites like myspace.com, Vimeo.com, dailymotion.com. They help a lot in optimization. Also, you can share YouTube videos in social bookmarking sites like Stumbleupon.com, tumblr.com, Delicious.com, reddit.com etc

    good replies above by Prasadkunala, hemantmali, realityhack.

    I just have one tip to add. Select the most compelling thumbnail. It could be outrageous, or blasphemous or sensuous or anything else that forces a visitor to click. Thats the way to hit the top on you tube.

    How exactly you choose a thumbnail I am not sure. Normally youtube gives me three thumbnails to choose from. But I have seens videos where the thumbnails do not even appear in the actual video. I am not sure how they do it.
