    I've been using viewet pretty consistently on one of my videos for about a month now, and also using enhanceviews to get 1 or 2 likes a day and also comments. Everything was going great and I went from page 4 to the top of page 2 for my main keyword phrase. But then suddenly the video dropped back to page 3. No other videos in the search were moved, so I'm pretty sure its my video getting penalized rather than some tweak in their search algorithm.

    Do you guys think it was from viewet or enhanceviews that I got penalized? What do you guys recommend I do? Should I give up on trying to rank that video and upload another? Also my video is educational in nature theres really nothing spammy or marketing about it. If any youtube employees did a manual review of the video they would probably be like "why the hell is he blasting views for this video?" lol. but still, I want it on the 1st page :eek:
