    Hey guys;

    Basically, I had a video ranked on page one for two high search volume keywords in positions two and three. The video itself is just over two months old and has always been ranking very well and climbing higher constantly throughout these last two months.

    Well... Today I checked the positions and it's now on pages three and four for both keywords? what the actual f? lol it hasn't been this low since the first two weeks after creation...

    I'd understand if I sent fake views, likes, and comments... but I haven't. Even the backlinks are of the highest quality with link pyramids/wheels, high PR site embeds and internal linking.

    I just don't undertstand... some of the videos on the third/fourth pages have literally under 10 backlinks lol... let's just say I have a hell of a load more than that and much higher quality, with most indexed.

    I thought it may be a Google dance, but can this happen for a 2 month old video? I was literally about to become position one for both of those money keywords and bam, pages 3 & 4.

    The video is still indexed and I nailed every aspect of onpage & offpage SEO. No one has targeted my video for negative SEO either.

    I'm perplexed; could someone who possibly experienced this please shed some light on what happened?

    May be overreacting here, but I put a lot of time and money into this video.

    Thanks for your time.

    Is your video ranking well on YouTube Search? It's usually easier for videos that are ranking well on YouTube to also rank highly on Google Search

    Well it's in the top 10 for both keywords, but from my experience views and likes mean very little for ranking in Google. This has literally never happened to me before and I follow the same strategy each time.

    My backlink and social share profile is better than anyone on the first pages for both keywords, hence my previous rankings.

    This seems impossible to me lol.

    Sounds silly, but have you tried checking the ranking using a different browser/IP address?

    Ok. If the problem persists, perhaps you can try building more backlinks to your video and see what happens then
