    I sent more 20.000 HR views, almost 1000 likes , some comments and subs and the video was de-ranked 5 minutes after of becoming public. The channel is pretty old and have +50.000 subscribers.

    Maybe I got scammed with the views or who knows. I´ll make a couple of additional tests. But seems it´s not true that the unlisted method works 100% if you do it from an authority channel. However I have seen a some videos raking well by doing this using new channels, so there must be a secret sauce around.

    Any inputs from someone who has been lately successful using the unlisted method ?

    Over how much time were those 20,000 HR views delivered? The time frame of delivering views plays a very major role in ranking a Video!

    It does not work anymore. For those saying it works on Authority channel is a misleading thing. Videos published from authority channels simply rank automatically. I did a lot of tests from different sellers after this case study and I got nothing. Since it does not require time (just uploading and buying views) , I believe I tried on 9 different videos , buying views from here, fiverr and other places and results were = zero. $100 spent on nothing.

    Buying views nowadays is totally useless . YT simply laughs at a new video that magically gets 90% of view retention rate, when the wide average would be 40-60% for a really good video. We are in 2016, LOL and YT is pretty smart. They have almost killed any blackhat method in the last 3 years. Yeah, you can still buy some views, likes and subs, to make your videos and channel look nicer, but that will get you nowhere in terms of making money. Blackhat on YT is almost dead, going legit and working hard on your content seems the best way to go with nowadays.

    I personally don't do the keyword ranking. I've tried using the unlisted method and it worked to rank my video among top 100 videos world wide. The top position it went was 76.

    And how much traffic is bringing you ??? Ranking a video on the fourth or fifth page is barely profitable.

    I tried YT unlist method before and it worked like a charm. But now it is hard to rank videos. Did you try to upload them normaly and then to boost it? I am sure it will rank but not as fast.

    How many subscribers determine high authority when it comes to ranking?

    Thank you for sharing this.

    This "unlisted method" does not work and why people on this subforum keep acting like it does boggles my mind.

    Anyone who says the unlisted method dosnt work is lying. Tho I do not know how they are doing it, but I see plenty of channels ranking their videos with 0 subs.

    I see a video right now at 9 hours with 6.8k views with a 0 sub channel 1k likes on the video and its ranked for a lot of keywords. No spamming in the description at all, title is keyword heavy and is ranked for almost all the keywords. Now im not sure about the timing of views and likes but it is def possible.
