    I have a video ranking top 5 on a med - high competition keyword and I want to know if I change my description will my video derank from Google. What about youtube?

    The changes I will be making is spacing between paragraphs and that is it(It is just one big blob of words because of error in software i use). I am not adding or removing anything.

    From my experience I would have to say you will be ok. The only thing that has had my videos change in ranking is when I add/remove the amount of times my kw is in the description and tags.

    I would have to agree with Flex1. In my experience the same holds true for me.

    update: I updated the video descriptions and there were no drastic changes to rankings on either YouTube or Google. This was done on about 5 -7 videos.

    It is still a little bit to early to tell if it will have some effect on rankings.
