    Hi all,

    I have created videos that are not in English and are targeting a specific (non-English speaking) country. To make the ranking process a bit easier I gave a bit of a boost using Vagex. Nothing crazy, only 200-300 views, because the competition is really low. Many videos on Youtube 1st page have ~100 views, the top video has 1200. No channel has more than 40 subs. The keyword has ~6600 exact searches a month in Google.

    From Youtube analytics I can see that most views are from US which in most cases would be perfect, but in this.. I am not sure.

    My video doesn't really seem to budge anywhere from Youtubes page 3. In Google it's not in top100 yet.

    I have optimized title, desc, tags etc. Also included a transcript.

    Does the video play location impact ranking in Youtube/Google? If so, how big is it's impact?

    And before someone says: yes, it is quality video that I have created myself.
