    Hey guys i am totally fail at yt video ranking, my keywords are good,description optimized too. But when i bought high retention views here on bhw my video have not even moved and my other video downranked by 1 page. Maybe i just need to wait? I am totally fed up with yt, even if i spend money no success, all my videos racing between 1-3. pages but changing position everyday and downranking like the hell sometimes

    Video length and view retention %, likes and comments, your example of YouTube SEO. You will sometimes need to dripfeed views like around XXXX per day for YY days in order to get the best results. Right now it looks like you might want to either try on a new video or pump more views, likes, comments on to the current video and see what happens in a few days.

    Time, if your video is jumping around dramatically YT/Google may be figuring out where to rank you due to the views coming in. I had a video on the bottom of page 1 drop off completely for 2 days only to jump to the #3 overall position. When it comes to youtube ranking patience is a virtue, its just like ranking a website, sometimes (but very rarely) you can rank overnight, other times you need to let your backlinks, comments, views, likes, etc get read by youtube so they can index you in the proper position. Dont give up...ever

    It's not only about high retention views. The best advice I can give you social bookmarks. With each of my videos (many with no likes or comments) they rank to the first page of google with ease.

    That's very interesting, how many do you point towards a video?
