They can't have someone at a desk watching videos all day and night to out them into categories. There's no equivalent to OCR software for moving images (tho I have heard rumours there is a military equivalent for stills).
When you upload a video there, there must be some tags or labels you add; like what catagory, sub-catagory and topic you save it into. Using those tags coupled to popularity, would give them a fair guide to use for search ranking.
The rest would jump out at the search bots because of the high link rates and creation of cookies, leaving traces - much the same as the Reactive Criminal Database used by Interpol.
