Sorry, but this is a victory for casual YT users. YT spam sucks.
TBH I've tried ranking new videos this past 2 weeks the old way - mass spam...and I'm ranking. Has anyone else tried ranking new videos this way since this thread started?
I tried spamming it but my video is only ranked in the "Videos" tab. I can't see my video on "Web"
What do you think is the problem?
Do you guys still consider the PR? I mean, is it okay to have unknown PR backlinks to your videos? Or do you only recommend having PR above 0 or 1? I know in websites, it's very important. But in YT videos, is it still important nowadays? Thanks in advance!
I found this thread on WF a few days back, not very helpful though:
Thanks! I think it's because I spammed lots of links in one domain. I mean, in 1 domain, I have around 10 URLs.Hey mate, honestly wish I had some better answers for you, but at the moment I still don't know what triggers the penalty. As I mentioned before, I cant see any evidence that this is anchor-related. My advice is to try and make your link building look natural and high quality. Where is your video ranking in the 'videos' tab? If its there for the keyword, you just need to continue building links to it and making it appear more relevant. There's nothing wrong with having PR 0 links, you could have some really relevant links that are only PR 0, but in general yes, you should look to build high PR, relevant links from good diverse sources to improve your rank. As a general rule, I think treating your video MORE like a website (not completely) will serve you well in the long run. I hope that helps a bit.
