    If you have a very popular video but it's getting 3 times more dislikes than likes, should you disable likes?
    Will disabling likes improve or hurt your video's rank?

    i usually disable the likes if i get more dislikes than likes, but i think it does help it in ranking remember that racist girl video she got manily dislikes and ranked pretty far and in the future i will buy likes for that video

    The dislikes are like negative feedback for the site. Youtube will rank it based on likes and dislikes, but that is minimal boosts both ways in their algorithm. Technically speaking your video quality must be ultra bad, and plus it must be on a subject that viewers hate in order for any video to get that many dislikes outnumber likes. If you purchased 1k likes and they dislike it about 5k dislikes well then you need to delete that video and actually DO content that the target audience wants.

    Maybe that video had many views and a good "view retention" ranking to rank well above their dislikes!

    If my video has a ton of dislikes, I use enhanceviews and boost it back in my favor :)

    How can you do that when enhanceviews lets you order a max of 20 LIKES per time...and it's slow as f*ck to even deliver those 20 ??

    So would disabling likes help boost the ranking?

    It only takes around 24 hours for me, and I don't usually get 'that many' dislikes
