I've arrived at this after watching many of my videos in the system. I originally started unlisting videos because I heard about the 301 trick. Granted I was never reaching 301 or delivering fake views but I figured it would help jump a few spots in rankings. I'm convinced that this is hurting my ranking and taking it completely out of viewing for search results... Even if I make the video public a couple hours after I uploaded. I guess I need to do some split testing on this. Thoughts?
