    I have a few botted videos ranking well for competitive words and search terms on YT. I just noticed that If I try to find them by using the YT´s search engine, my videos do not appear like the did yesterday or these previous days. They are still up, not deleted.

    Have they been deindexed? any of you experiencing the same issue?

    thanks

    I know Youtube was going through some new changes when it came to their algorithm and how certain videos showed up on the search.

    This could be the effect of it, since botted videos took up the space for regular videos and youtube wants to put a stop to that.

    I'll let you know if I find any other cases of it.

    My videos are back in the search engine:) but now they appear on page number 3 / 4 / 5. A youtube dance, I believe. Time to do something that can help them to rank higher.

    What about he views coming from related/suggested videos? The new algo that uses user engagement messed up a lot of videos that used to get tons of traffic from those sources from what I'm reading.

    If you're still getting traffic then it should be ok.

    I posted a video 3-days ago that was just a pp slideshow completely white hat(royalty free music and images). The only thing I did was use vagex to increase views. First couple days video was showing up normally in both google and youtube search.

    Yesterday I google'd "exact video title" and in the videos section of google I got no search results, but video is showing up in the normal section of google where the websites are listed. I searched the same thing in youtube search and my video is still there.

    Could this be an indexing error on googles part or has google deindexed my youtube video?
