    Howdy fellas,
    Lately I was researching some good niches and stumbled to some great niches but they have really high competition on youtube and is impossible to rank because of flaggers nowadays on youtube.
    On the contrary,on google competition is not so strong.
    So I am planning to rank couple of youtube videos.
    But as there are many flaggers,my video won't even survive more than 2-3 days(no matter even if it's ranking #1000 xD )
    So I wanted to ask whether google can crawl/index an unlisted yt vid?
    Thank you :)

    I do not believe so. The purpose of unlisted is so only people with the link can view it. Unless your blasting that link around I wouldnt worry about it.

    Google doesn't crawl youtube videos. They own the youtube database, they just query it directly.

    Yes,I'll be doing so.

    So do you think that the unlisted vids can be ranked on google ?

    it's not possible unless you had listed the video once and then closed it from getting listed. in this case, what's been on the internet, stays in google cash, bro.

    I don't think so, but you should experiment to make sure ;) (You asked whether they crawl it. They don't.)
