    So I have a video that's at the top of page 2 of YouTubes search results in a HUGE niche. Being on Page 2 however brings me little to no traffic.

    What surprised me however is that the video also gets no traffic from suggested videos, which I find really odd and YT ranks it so highly in the search results. Does anybody know how the algorithm for suggested videos differs from the algorithm for search results?

    Just to make it clear I'm talking about YouTube rankings - Not Google.

    How can you copy all the tags of a video? You can't see a video's tags that aren't yours any more.

    Right click > View page source.

    I'm questioning how effective this technique is though. I do this technique all the time and some of the keywords I end up having are just stupid, and I'm wondering if it's more effective to put relevant related keywords in instead of "usa" or whatever it is.

    What does the copy tags technique actually do to the algorithm anyway?

    What do you mean by "secret sauces"?
