    How can popular videos rank soooo much better than others?

    For example this PewDiePie video, it has 2 tags... If we take a look at the other video (SLABS), it have No description and alot of unrelevant to PewDiePies tags... HOW COULD THAT SHOW UP IN SUGGESTIONS?

    look at the likes the second one only has double of the first but has 4 times as many views.
    clearly spammed or fake views

    I've been trying to find out how the heck the "suggested" or "featured" algorithm works (related to displaying videos on the right hand side) and I have yet to see any rhyme or reason to it. They updated the algorithm in March, which you can read about here: I guess I'm not allowed to post links yet

    I don't believe either of these videos are spamming, cheating. Both these channels are in the top 100 subscribed channels on YouTube, both are gaming channels and both are part of the machinima network. Maybe some of those factors are influencing the placement.

    Haha, most of the top 100 most subscribed view botted or cheated the system in some way to get to where they are at now. Just look at his username "UberHaxorNova"??? hahahaha and Machinima is known for cheating themselves and recruiting those who do it as well. But what do you expect from a network full of "geeks/nerds?" They're smart enough to utilize the tools (bots etc) to get to where they are at now and no longer need to use them. Some of them still do bot but because they're so popular now, no one questions them.

    It's better than spamming videos with views in hopes to make a quick buck. =P





    (btw not saying UberHaxorNova or PewDiePie have or do cheat the system, just saying don't be surprised if they are or anyone else in that matter)

    I dunno about that, when you've got like a million subs you do tend to get a lot of views and likes!
