    Hi guys,

    The like to dislike ratio for one of my YT videos which promotes a clickbank product is almost 5 (the video was lunched last one year ago and now has 101 likes and 20 dislike).
    1: Is this ratio reasonable?
    2: Can it dramatically affect the number of sales/conversions of the product?
    3: regarding that ration Is it a good idea -or do you suggest- to hide the number of likes/dislikes?
    4: How can I increase that ratio naturally?

    Thanks.

    20% dislike is a high ratio and may cause bad image on your earning. dislike to like ratio should be below 5%.

    Thanks,

    Really? Every now and then People buy the product via that video, So regarding the like/dislike category what is your suggestion so that I increase the number of sales for that video? I don't like to buy fake likes. So is the idea of hiding the like/dislike numbers is a good idea? Or what?
    Everybody who comes to that video and puts a comment says that the product is great, So I don't know why I get those dislikes!! The only 2 reasons I can think of, are
    1: In YT, most of people are looking for something (ie a video) to solves their problem for free (ie watching a video and get the remedy!)!??
    2: Maybe I should not use the terms like "amazing" or "best"!!??

    I am under the impression a like and dislike are the same thing. What youtube and google are after is more the interaction and whether its a like or dislike, it doesn't matter because its still 1 interaction with the video and as long as the traffic is coming from a reliable source or organic, its good.

    Thanks...

    Well I am worry because I am thinking if it can affects on my sales or not?! I mean if people see that the video has a high like/dislike rate then they might think that the product which it promotes is not a good product!

    Do You promote the product using review product title video or niche keyword title video?

    if review product based, you should have more likes and very few dislikes. 101 likes and 20 dislikes really make the visitor upset for sure. To attract visitors and get sales, you should have low number of dislikes.

    Thanks buddy,

    Well I couldn't understand the first line!, what you mean by "review product title video".
    Can you please elaborate it so that I understand and explain to you?

    So what should I do now with the dislikes I got?? Should I hide the number of likes/dislikes then?

    1. No. When have you ever clicked on a video and thought positive thoughts seeing 20% disliked the video.
    You immediately assume something is wrong.
    2. Yes
    3. Dont hide the likes, thats even worse.
    4. Add a few likes to the video, i dont see what you have against fake/bought likes as long as you dont over do it . I usually view a video as bad when it has more than 10% dislikes and sometimes ill even skip it for another.
    Thats my opinion as a person who watches several videos on youtube!
    Increase your likes to at least 200, you can dripfeed them so doesnt look suspicious.

    There is no bad image of the number of dislikes. Dislikes have same effect as number of likes you get. It indicates popularity of the vid.

    In my opinion your dislike ratio is bit higher. It can affect your sales. So you need more likes to make the dislike ratio low. You are asking for natural way to get more likes. I think it is only possible if you upload a high quality and useful video. At this situation you can buy 100 likes to lower the dislike ratio.

    If you promote x product, and saying title "X product review legit or scam or something like title having videos".. Are you using this kind of videos?
    If so, you need to increase likes. Don't hide your likes/dislikes feature, because it will decrease the video quality.

    please confirm, what kind of title you use.. If it is general topic no issue about likes, but when they 100% depend the product review or promotion, you need high likes for sure.

    I am not sure If I can understand you my friend!
    But I normally use the term "How to do...." + "Product name" and sometimes I use the terms like "the best" or "amazing" and so on...
