    i know that these both help when getting your video ranked but how much harder will it be to rank if i disable both of these features? i plan on doing this because my videos are going to be very controversial and i expect a lot of dislikes and negative comments which will probably effect the traffic to my site in obviously a bad way. i will appreciate any help. thanks

    From my experience comments are not a big ranking factor. It's all about views and the video's title/description/tags.

    Comments don't matter at all. Video title, likes and views are the only thing that matter for ranking. It's very odd though, because I almost think that some accounts are able to rank better no matter what.

    I used to upload music videos over multiple accounts all with the same title, description and everything with no views and there would be some account which would always rank higher for the keyword when they had all the same details and views and likes.
