    Ok, I saw a huge drop in my earnings so I checked out my traffic stats. And I saw that one site has a huge drop in earnings. I promote that site using Youtube so I searched for my video but I couldn't find it in the results. Also when I copy and pasted the title and searched it was still not showing up. It happened to 2 of my videos with a good amount of views on 2 different accounts.

    Does anybody know what the problem is?

    Thanks,

    Jake.

    This has happened to me before. A couple of key videos have disappeared before, going for a couple of days. However, normally they return.

    Although in your case a significant drop in earnings may mean your video may have been deleted/removed?

    Thanks for your reaction, luckily my videos just reappeared. I changed the description and it seems like it's working again now.
    And it was not just for one keyword, all of the keywords. Thats why my traffic dropped with 90%.

    - Solved - I hope this will never happen again.

    Glad it's sorted. Not sure why this happens.
    Once one of my videos never came back :(

    Damn, my videos are back. But it seems like I'm still getting 75% less traffic. How is that possible?
    Maybe because my video is now ranked 5th and not 4th? Will that make such difference?
    It is a quite saturated niche.
