    Ok, I have a video that's on page one of youtube. I've purchased the customary likes, views, and some backlinks. I was happy with where I was, and I hadn't checked it in about a month. Over the last week I dropped from position 5 on the first page to position 7. After a couple of days I went to Ahrefs to check to see if maybe I was dropping links or something.... BOY was I in shock!

    Url rank (29)
    arefs domain rank (89)
    backlinks (138 MILLION) WTF???
    referring domains (1.34 MILLION)

    This can't possibly be good. I've seen fiverr gigs that say 200k backlinks may act as negative seo, then I began to think, is SOMEONE doing this to my video? What should I make from the above information?

    Youtube videos usually can take a backlink pounding, but I've never seen that many backlinks. Just wait a week or two, if your rankings keep dropping just make another video.

    do you think it's sabotage? I have noticed 1 particular artist who has moved ahead of me, and when I checked his
    link he has no backlinks.

    BINGO lol
    I did that and it came in at a more manageable 94 backlinks, and 50 referring domains. Ok, I'm happy with that. Now a follow up question, should I just keep building the backlinks to increase my rank again?
    thanks guys for helping me understand
