Ghosted Video = A video that's not ranking anywhere, meaning you'll never get any organic views at all. Other possible terms = Deranked, Shadowban?, Deindexed How to check? (Non-related trending videos becomes suggested) 1. Open browser incognito and go to YouTube. 2. Check the left bar and go to Trending. (Take note of the videos you'll see there) 3. Get your video's link and open that on incognito. (I use Chrome, but it might work for others too) 4. While your video is playing, see on the right (Suggested videos) that those are videos from trending and not actually related for your target KWs and whatnot. 5. If it is then it's ghosted. (Can't be seen in google search) 1. Get your video's link. 2. Go to google and paste that link on the google search bar. (Google's not the browser's) 3. If there's no results then it's ghosted. Recently I've been encountering this exact problem on my newly uploaded videos. They get ghosted sometimes after half a day, after 1-2 days. I tried things like changing title, changing thumbnail, etc., even re-render and re-upload but neither worked. Granted that my content are copyright-magnet (scenes compilation), but I did have some not so old videos that did well and still ranking with no signs of ghosting. Bottom-line, if you got these videos then no more organic views for that video for eternity.
