    Okay so I recently uploaded a song from an artist some of you may know him (Logic)
    anyway I was probably the first/second person to upload it to youtube, so I left it on too see if it would of grown naturally but it got kicked off by some of the big music channels.

    So I decided to try and rank it with High Retention Views and Likes, Comments, Social Shares..

    Heres what I've added so far..

    55,000+ High retention mobile views (99.4% retention)
    1,100 Likes
    130 comments
    and currently in the middle of the process of gaining the video over 1000 social shares from a fiverr service.

    The title, description and tags are done perfectly and I can't really think what else to do, but I can't even find the video when I search for the main keywords.
    The top video on page one has about 60,000 views.

    Any help?

    well they are facebook.com referals but they come up as mobile essentially.
    and yeah how else are you supposed to get high retention views every seller I see is mobile?

    if you cant find the it when you search for your main keywords then its probably a problem on youtubes side...many have had this problem (i haven't so far) but i heard they had to upload a new video and rank that instead.

    I call bullshit on that atleast in my experience mobile views are good.
    Just think logical there are a lot of people using youtube via their mobiles and the number is rising
    so it wouldn't make sense for youtube to ignore all those natural appearing views.
    Since you are sure that you didn't failed the on page seo the fault must be in the off page seo.
    I would recommend buying some favorites and subscribers to that video and also invest in some senuke or other backlink campaigns which will help you to rank in google too.
    If you want me to track the rank of your video or you have some questions shoot me a pm :)

    Then i guess your on page seo was really really bad. And guys its not all about the views ;)
    There are a lot of factors which let youtube decide where to put a video

    Why do people think that just blasting views will even get your video ranked in the first few pages at all? There's so many other factors that come into play like social bookmarks, likes, comments, and even backlinks. The main thing is to make it look natural and if you're not first page with 95k views where number one has 5k then your problem isn't the type of views you have it's that the way you processed your views didn't look natural to google and was bitch slapped.

    View over X amount of days Example- 1000 view a day over 30 days is better than 30,000 views over 1 days
