    My channel is getting more than 1,5 million monthly views... but the majority of them come only from my videos embed on big blogs....

    For some reason my videos don't go suggested on other people's videos.... a week ago one of my videos got shared on 9gag homepage and i did 2 million views in a week, during this week as always none of my videos has been suggested in to other people's videos (30 hit from if i'm not wrong)
    Basically they are suggested only on my own videos.

    My audience retention on videos is between 60% and 90% the videos have a lot of interactions, some video even have over 700 comments and 3k likes
    They are 100% original and unique content ofc

    I don't know what to do.... any thoughts?

    That's odd. Maybe it's just very competitive? How do the views your videos have compare to other suggested videos in the same niche?

    Almost the same views as the most popular videos on this niche. hundreds of thousands more than all the other videos in this niche.

    May be a bug or something similar? If so i guess i'm screwed up.....

    If i search for the main keywords i have 10 videos under the first 5 page of search (1million+ monthly searches for those keywords)

    Where i can see the "indexing settings"?

    i also have 5 other videos on the first page of a 250k keyword

    In Video manager - Info and Settings - Privacy Settings. There you have Public, Unlisted, Private.
    For a video to be open for indexing, it has to be Public.

    By the way, I wonder how you can tell if your videos don't get suggested to others. I thought that depended on the individual. It's like personalized search results, only in YouTube. They're based on what one has watched before, who they follow, etc. ?

    Ah thought a different thing. ye that's alright.

    I don't get clicks from other people's video. Out of 25.000 clicks on videos suggested on my own videos i get 10 clicks from other people's video, and for me is not being suggested.
    I have many other channels (small channels) and everything is fine.
    My network says that when my videos get embed, youtube algorithm remove any videos of mine from "suggested videos" to penalize them as much as possible.
    They said even 1 video getting many embed views will make youtube remove any my videos from the suggested bar.

    In January i'm already over 2 million views, and all the traffic is coming from embed players, and youtube searches. The total amount of clicks of my videos suggested on other people's videos is 351.
