Does having a video ripped of youtube affect the video's ranking on YT Search Engine?

    Okay so i'm trying to rank this youtube video for a somewhat popular niche. I took one of the more popular vids off the 2nd page and ripped it using Keepvid and just reuploaded it and threw some yt views (retention) and likes/subs at it. I've been waiting for a while now and no rankings, not even in the top 10 pages. So now i'm a bit worried that it's because of me ripping the video. The on page optimization should be fine...so i'm not too worried there. Does anyone have experience with this?

    Is there a way i can replace my youtube vid once its uploaded or edit it so that it's different?

    Thanks all.

    I don't think it's the file format or the video itself, it may be due to the views and likes you "threw" at it. Did you go heavy handed there? If you search for the exact title does it show up? Is there some keyword on your description you can search for to see if it's not penalized?

    When you rip any video from youtube, then just rename the video and upload it. That's enough. it'll rank if you did the proper optimization. If you uploaded your video just yesterday, then you have to wait for a week or two ;).

    Heyo thanks for the input. They're BB 's views. It's true that I didn't have the views drip fed so I had all 10k at the same time. I went into the downloads and used the "youtube rank checker" provided here and it's on page 14 of my main keyword. Don't think it is penalized or anything. A video uploaded on 23hrs ago is already on pg 1 with spammed views and likes which is weird. While searching through the pages though,there's a lot of the same video that I ripped, which worries me.

    Ah. I see that's what i did! I uploaded a week ago, and sent all the views etc in 2-3 days ago. However I just saw a vid rank that was uploaded 23 hrs ago! a bit unnerving i would say

    Thanks for the response

    I dont notice it having a problem when I did it. Sales conversion sucks on ripped videos though.
