    my recent tests didn't show any effect of source of views on ranking - i tested many sources.
    the key factors as always ► VPH & retention rate

    yes exactly, views per hour - gives youtube the idea how much the video is popular now and where (it will rank it where it's popular) this is a very important fact

    view, like, and the relevant comments will help rank youtube.

    Especially if your video is helpful for others, it will go viral quickly

    Didn't work in my latest video even though I was getting 1500 views per hour. On top of that, added 250 likes and some dislikes and shares too. Video shows nowhere in suggested or related videos. YT is getting tricky day by day, maybe because of the recent update.

    You need to make sure your title desc tags are matching the keywords you targeted

    That's the first thing I do when I upload any video. I am hearing now shares play an important role in ranking.

    What do you think how long would it takes to fall out from the first page if he wouldn't get any views and likes in the following days?
