Hey

I've uploaded a video to youtube. It doesn't appear in the "most recent" section of "Pets & Animals". I uploaded video to that section. I wonder if I did something wrong or the videos have to be approved by youtube before they are visible by other users...?

This is the video I uploaded:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRTXTCtTQX4

(this is first time I upload video to youtube)

any suggestions?
 
to reduce server strains, the database has probably not yet updated after you put your video online. That's why you don't see it.
uhumm

If you don't know how youtube works. Then you should probably find out how the web, and youtube works before trying to promote on it.
Stuff like knowing youtube is the 4th most popular website on earth and reviewing each and every damn video that gets uploaded would take hundreds of thousands of employees. It's called common sense.

That is also a great car insurance advertisement. You've got to love cat lovers that love car insurance!
You should also put a few more tags instead of 2 that aren't even the same as the title or description. So its very clear you haven't chosen any keywords and won't get any search traffic at all.

You should also correct the title of your thread making it easier to understand if you are telling us
"HOW TO" get more views on youtube or if you are asking a question.

Ask something like "how DO I get more views on my youtube videos?"

Also with your 129 posts and non a contribute making all your posts useless and you useless, most posts are threads you've started to ask a question for your own gain
you should at least learn to thank others, maybe the ones that contribute or try to help you with your 70+ threads created (not me though). You've contributed nothing and thanked only 1 so far making you extremely helpful and really caring for the people that take time to answer your 70 questions. .... NOT.

So maybe you should start thanking people. like the people that take the time to help you below me.

Honestly bro, if this was my video I would have added a longer title with some long tail keywords, also I would have added a good amount of tags.

This would help your video to come up in related videos and more often in searches.

Just my opinion...

Thanks for that tip about longer title. I thought having a longer title resulted in fewer visitors as fewers was using my title as a search term. But I will take your advice and change title into for example: "Watch my 2 black cats fight off a red cat", but maybe that title again is too long?
 
I just added some code to boost AC views here (would work for YT - too):

I loled when I saw the site being promoted at the end... This strikes me as such a completely brute force approach to marketing - uploading a boring video promoting a website that has absolutely zilch to do with the video in the desperate hope that someone will view the video, visit the site, and click on an Adsense ad. Does this approach actually work for some people? (Honest question from your neighborhood n00b.)

Try uploading an interesting video, or at least one with a catchy title. What do you think people are searching for on Youtube/Google? What are some of the latest films to be released? Oh, shit, I see 2012 is out... Hop over to Youku or Tudou, find a pirated version of the film, download it using FLVCD or whatever and upload a portion of that to Youtube with the title "Awesome 2012 Ending" or "Shocking 2012 Ending" or something along those lines. At least that's a brute force tactic likely to get your video some hits. "Black cats vs red cat"? Less likely to get hits. :rolleyes:

Thread moved?
 
Actually, the reason your video is not appearing right away in "recent updates" is because, as I have noticed through experimentation, youtube "indexes" a new video by it's file name at first. Try searching with your file name, and you will find your video, showing its actual title. That is only temporary though, but useful to know!
