    I remember at the start of the year I would upload a video do my stuff and then just rank it like crazy. Granted it would be removed after 2 months but it was a rinse and repeat method. Recently It just doesnt seem to be happening. Have you guys experienced something like this? Should I keep testing or is it not the right time to try and rank youtube videos? I am seeing a lot of blogspots and tumblrs ranking though.

    Yep, youtube has been making changes, though I cant say either way whether they are going after clickbank videos. To me it seems unlikely. What does seem to be happening though is youtube tightening their algorithm to deter those seeking to manipulate the serps and bring about higher quality. From my experience, what used to work largely still works now (i.e. social media, embeds, high pr links, high retention view), BUT these need to be done on a consistent basis. Though, I have also heard of SOME people simply spamming their video and getting rankings so I'm not 100% sure, but better safe than sorry, right?
    Hope that helps, Jon.

    That same thing that use to work in the past still works except you will need to add some aptness.
