    What's the given timeframe (if any) for a video to rank well on YouTube?

    I'm a bit of a beginner. I've just finished delivering my views, likes subs etc to my video and now i'm waiting for it to rank. How long should i expect to wait to get a decent rank (that's if i do get a decent rank at all)

    I know there is different variables, like how competitive the niche is etc but i just would like to know roughly how long i should be expecting to wait.

    Thanks

    You can't rank just by sending views/likes nowadays.. you need to dripfeed them so Youtube thinks they are 'trending' to guarantee the top spots on the SERP.

    I don't know if dripfeeding is the solution , have a look at the guy who boosted to 1 million views and rank and featured in first page of google , its in the likes commments favorites , social signal and ofcourse high retention views

    If you want to appear on the homepage then yeah send millions of views and let organic views do the rest. The OP is talking about ranking a video in the SERP's though. If you want to consistently rank a video in the top 3 spots you have to dripfeed views/likes/shares etc, unless you are receiving enough organic views to stay there without paid views.
