    I'm running a YT Channel. Videos are slipping from the SERP, I'm pretty sure that it's the work of one of my very close competitor. Can anyone tell me how he can drop ranking of my videos?

    Dbdnvikas,

    Since YouTube is run by Google I find it hard to believe that anyone is doing anything directly to your videos but I suppose they could. I would think that it is more likely they are just outranking you with better tactics. Do their videos get watched more? Do they have a lot of comments on them? Just like with organic and paid search, Google looks at engagement with content as a signal for delivering results. If a video matches a user's query and it has a lot of engagement (comments and views), then it will serve those results over something that doesn't have those signals.

    Perhaps you can find an answer here,

    Hope that helps you,
