    It has been several months now since I last really used YT and tried to rank any videos, back then I was able to do it with just simple spam, it would take a couple week to rank but you would start to see movement pretty quick. Well I did a test video a month back and blast lots of links and still have yet to see any movement at all. Has anything changed with ranking YT videos in this time I have had off or is it still the same ?

    Agree, just drip feed your blast over 1-2 weeks with good anchor text diversity. Buying views also help.

    Is still fine, and sending a PBN/SAPE link or two along with spam is not a bad idea.

    I know ranking videos in google for video keywords like "product name review" happens a lot, but do you guys ever rank videos for non-video keywords. Like rank a video for "used cars" or something?

    Ranking YouTube vids hasn't changed much even with the latest Google updates. Just try and find the most recent guide you can find here on the forum.

    I have been tracking this video now over this time and it still has not ranked basically at all, for all of its easy keywords none are very high on Google. For this video I blasted even more links than I did before, but I did not drip feed these links I basically sent them over a 5 day period, so I don't know if that is really a big part or not.

    Also I just remembered that for this video when I uploaded it I disabled the ratings so that they do not display. i never thought that hiding the ratings effected Google SEO much, but maybe is this the reason why the video is not ranking ?

    it is not working the same way as it used to be. There are a lot of threads like on on BHW, GSA Forum etc. It is more of a hit and miss for me these days.

    Not as much as before, but if you do your spamming effectively, it is still very possible.

    that's a bunch of BS. The game has very well changed. Depending on the niches you are targeting.

    I can also confirm that g has made changes on how they rank videos in g search results. Before you can blast and rank...now not so much.

    Well this video I tested was indeed very low comp keywords much like I used before with great success, so what is the different strategy now? And also does turning off the likes and favorites stats affect Google YouTube video SEO ?
