    Video was ranked for some high competition keyowords without sharing it anywhere. The moment I shared it on all those icons you see under the button share on youtube, specifically facebook , the rank disappeared . Just trying to help, and this is just 1 experience . Those shares are actually pretty valuable if they come from the IPs of other ppl , AKA VPN + Incognito mode.

    Well, but i have come across several publications, saying that shares actually rank youtube videos on Youtube.

    Seems like the tides are changing. Thanks for this update. We can actually learn from this.

    So you are saying that sharing video's on facebook lowers their rank?
    It does not make any sense, if that was true then everybody would share their competitors video on facebook to lower their rank lol

    It must be a coincidence something else happened that lowered your video's rank

    OP what you say doesn't make sense.Youtube put those buttons there to share the video so that Youtube gets more traffic to sell ads.They will shooting them self in the foot if they do that.

    Idk man I am just telling you what happened . Next video I will not share it anywhere to see what happens. I also mentioned that shares coming from other people are good, but anything coming from your IP might be bad .

    That is just crazy, people would share their own content with their friends that is interested in the same thing.

    OP have you tried logging out of Youtube before searching for your video?

    I think you found a false correlation here.

    Yes I aways use VidIQ in incognito mode. VidIQ vision for youtube is a chrome extension which gives you a list of all your keywords and tells you for which you're ranked as well as other statistics right next to your video , such as views per hour , estimated earning , places the video has been shared and how many . Just install it and see, it is pretty good.

    Yep video was ranked 3rd and 2nd for single keywords, the moments I started sharing and it disappeared . This is a good thing, meaning less money on shares , more money on views :)

    Well the conclusion I guess is don't like or share your own videos . I think sharing on twitter is safe though .

    That's very unlikely to be the case, OP. Your video dropped in SERPs for some other reasons and sharing it at that moment was most probably just a coincidence. Why would YouTube mind you promoting your own video and bringing them traffic. When you share your video, you're promoting them as well.

    Using incognito mode doesn't guarantee you're seeing the data without your previous searches etc skewing results. You should use a completely different browser (like Firefox in your case) without signing in to Google and check it again.

    I doubt this has anything to do with sharing your video. Just because you do something and then your video gets deranked doesn't mean the thing
    you did caused the issue. It's probably the things that you DIDN'T DO that caused it to get deranked.

    You can still share videos on facebook but google+ is more worth.
