    If you just uploaded a video and set it to private / unlisted and you send backlinks to the video will the backlinks still count. Most importantly, when you set a video to unlisted or private does the age of the video stay marked as new until you set it public.

    ex. upload video as private two days ago and set to public today.

    This is how I use to let my videos age. Upload as unlisted and keep it unlisted for 2weeks+ boost it during those 2 weeks, than set to public and it would reveal the date it was uploaded plus would have all the goods views/likes/subs/favs/comments.

    Now when I set videos to unlisted and than wait to put them public.. it says Published on (the date I set it to public) so I think they changed it for the worse :(

    Thank you. If you set them to unlisted will the views, likes, backlinks still count during the time the video is unlisted

    I believe so, but I don't do this technique anymore I just upload and boost them now so have no clue if it's changed...
