    Hello guys


    My question is how do i rank to spot 1 after ive uploaded a video.

    Example:

    Ive uploaded a Match Highlight of Arsenal (soccer btw) and when i click "last hour" on YT FILTER My video doesnt rank in 1st spot or first page for that matter when searching "arsenal match highlights"
    Then i downloaded a 301 instant bot but viewcount apparantly doesnt count since although i had more"views" than other people, people with less views are ranking above me.


    Can any please guide me, give me tips i already didnt know about?


    Thanks and have a nice day.

    View count means nothing for ranking. Retention watch time is key.

    Get some HR views, likes and social shares.

    In short a retention view is a video that has been watched from start to finsh, not droped off and the account of the person is still active.
    Every one knows that Youtube is currently ranking video's based on your video's audience retention rate, ie, the longer the video has been viewed by a viewer, the higher your video will be ranked.


    Gaining a high audience retention rate for your video will increase your video's Youtube and Google ranking, this is a key factor to your companies success, you and me both know that not every one will look at the third or fourth page on google so its a key factor to boost your rankings.:)

    1. Optimize your title, description and keyword tag
    2. Embed your video to other sites
    3. Get quality comments, fav, likes and the likes. It must be of high value for this to work.
    4. Get some social flow, must be of high value too.
    5. Get top notch views, high retention views.

    Fiverr isn't the right place to beseige for this either.

    If it's that easy, everyone will be doing it.

    I always feel that YouTube Video ranking highly depends upon the Title of the video and then after the social sharing.If these twp will be done good then I really feel that video will rank good.

    but see, im not fighting for top spot on yt search page, im fighting for top spot for MY title video.

    Example:

    Arsenal vs Tottenham 6-0 All goals and highlights 2015

    I want people that are searching for match highlights to come to my video, and they do that buy clicking on the YT filter "last hour" after the match is ended.

    But the problem is that my video get dropped to low or second page. What i want to know is how people on the top spot are there, and some of them are clearly using 301 bot.
