    I've been ranking videos for a long time and this is a weird question but I've always been curious about it.

    I usually just send retention views, likes, subs and backlinks and if I'm persistent / patient enough the videos always
    rank on G at some point.

    But can having no dislikes set off some type of filter on YT?

    The reason I ask is I have a video, in a somewhat competitive niche, for a fairly profitable term, and its very close
    to ranking on page 1 of Google. But I do not want the video to get deleted. Right now it has over 1000+ likes, but 0
    dislikes. And I'm curious if the video goes like this for too long, if it can set off some type of filter? Its actually been
    up for like 2 1/2 months and gets natural traffic, but noone is hitting the dislike button which I've never seen before
    in my life. Usually by now my videos will ALWAYS have a certain % of dislikes.

    So I'm curious if other YT marketers use dislikes, and where you get them from?

    I have a Vagex guru account but they don't offer them. I would like to do like 10-20 dislikes for every new video I make,
    just to make them come off more natural. But I want to see how many other marketers do this and if its necessary in
    the first place.

    Thanks guy -SB

    No, that's completely stupid. Dislikes will come by themselves.

    I agree with imseo, you will receive dislikes no matter what.

    Likes/Dislikes are just counted as rating by YT. It makes no difference.

    For future reference feel free to use the YouTube section of the forum. That's what it's there for ;)

    I've been meaning to do this to my videos as well. In terms of YouTube, I have no idea if it will raise flags, but I'm sure it would raise flags to the visitors of the video, because how many videos have 1000 likes and 0 dislikes? So I want it to look natural for the viewers. You can use something like Microworkers to get dislikes.

    Like & Dislike have no difference in ranking but it has value on visitors. Only having lots of like look silly. Your idea is good to add some dislike.
    I could provide you with dislikes. Let me know if you interested in custom order.

    lol this reminds me of the person who wants to tank his site. But this makes more sense. I agree looking at it from the viewers standpoint 1000 likes and 0 dislikes is very weird. However a few hundred likes and no dislikes isnt all that rare. I would imagine it would set off a youtube filter at a high proportion, like 10k likes no dislikes.

    You are right in the context that naturally a video should have some dislikes but fortunately YouTube does
    not pay any attention to it.

    I've never experienced setting any filter for not having dislikes, but I'm sure its something they could add in the future.

    If its give you such a bad feeling then add some manually...
    It won´t lower your ranking.
