    I've uploaded over 100 videos and only one of them went somewhat viral. For every video I buy anywhere between :

    10 - 100 K 97%+ Retention views ,
    100-800 likes
    200 -800 google shares
    about 400 facebook likes

    Title , Description , tags everything optimized to the max , catchy thumbnails

    Comments generated by my multiple accounts from different IPs

    And still , I am having trouble ranking for long keywords in many cases , let alone short ones like funny or the name of the game ( yes I am in the gaming part of youtube )

    What am I doing wrong, I know for sure title, description and tags is not the problem here, am I missing something, is there some trick to this because I am starting to get kind of sick spending 20$+ every video and only getting legit views ( about 3-5 K ) only when I buy 100 000 fake views. I usually get about 1000 real views per video when I buy between 10-20K views . I also use and abuse playlists, I've seen all the tutorials on youtube, I am doing everything and abusing it too and still not getting the result I want .

    I have VidIQ which tells me the views retention , the amount of shares and other data , my videos have huge scores but ranking simply doesn't do its job the way it should.

    Please help !

    A quick example , look at the retention, the amount of views, shares, everything , and yet this video only ranks for 1 keyword which is my channel name. [​IMG]

    My channel has no copyright strikes but have in mind even the long keywords I try to rank for are somewhat popular, like I said this is the gaming community after all

    And now all of a sudden my newest video ranks 5th for a keyword with 90%+ competition even though all the views and other things aren't even half way done . I have 8K subs . 2000 of them legit . Should I spend a good 100$ and buy me another 80 000 subs ? Could that help ?

    * update

    refreshed page now it went down to rank 16 wtf ?

    where do you even buy all these views subs comments shares and likes?
    how much is 100,00k views?
    It seems to me that you are doing everything right, maybe content is the problem? try doing some testing when you upload a video, don't buy anything for it and test it out. See how long actual real subs watch your content and if they comment or anything this way youll no if the content is engaging or they stop watching half way. then youll know its content.

    Here's something I don't understand. Why would you buy subs? You're building up a "fake" community around your channel, and besides for rankings (which can be done better without faking it) it would do nothing more than hurt revenue, and potentially put the banhammmer down on your channel...

    Focus on quality content, proper tag optimization, and good promotion. Build a real audience.

    Just as Euclid said "there is no Royal Road to Geometry", there is no shortcut to YouTube success. If anyone says different they're probably selling something.

    Focus on quality content man. You don't have to spend $20 per video. I only spend $1-$2 dollars per video and I get a top 3 rank within 3 days in a competitive keyword and get 20-40k legit views. I've gotten nearly 1,000 organic subs by just making quality content and not overthinking things. It's been about 2 weeks and I've gotten 50-100 subs a day by not spending a lot.

    If you're buying 100k views and only receiving 3-5k legitimate views afterwards, there's something wrong. I'll echo what DM3 said: focus on making better content. Your videos aren't capturing your audience's attention and they're leaving causing your videos to tank. As for what that means... You said you were in the gaming niche, right? I'd check hugely popular videos that are similar to yours and see what they're doing in terms of editing, style, content, etc.
