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.
