    Hello there guys.
    I have a problem in YT.
    Whatever I do to rank my videos, nothing happens.
    Here's how I rank them :

    Firstly, I have a lot of keywords in the title + description.
    I'm placing tags everywhere, either extra tags in the description.
    Every single video I upload, I assign it 250 views through U2Bviews, and 1500 views through Vagex + 60/70 likes.
    It can't seem to be ranking well, 10 days have already passed and my videos are still in pages 3/4.

    Why's that?

    Thanks you!

    I've been having the same problem. I'm doing pretty much the same thing as you, but I'm also adding a large amount of backlinks, although it doesn't seem to be having any effect.

    Maybe Google is devaluing ranking YT videos?

    Might be obvious or might not be but are the views your videos are receiving high retention? Delve into your analytics and check what percentage retention your views are. YouTube changed their ranking algorithm to favour videos with high retention over other videos even if they had more views. Also - Don't overdo it on the keywords, keyword stuffing too much can actually have a negative effect on your video, YouTube is rewarding video's that look natural recently. Hope this helps man.

    Few extra things you need to consider

    1. Views isn't enought anymore - time on video / channel is - link your videos together with annotations - you want people to hang around engaged with your videos and then move onto more of the same

    2. Transcript - Upload your own - don't rely on teh Youtube auto trascript.

    3. DOn't stuff your title with keywords - try get the percentage of keywords your are targetting up ie 60% of the title relating to the term you wantt o rank for

    View stream (how many views per day for x days) and social signals for your videos? The views need to be around 60% retention or more per video. Do you have retweets, likes, comments, shares, +1s? Also, keep in mind that you will need to coordinate such things within the first 3 days, and then drip feed the rest over at least 30-60 days. Be sure that the niche you are in is worth it, i.e. major gaming or something because the payoff is BIG.

    Just here to re-enforce what everyone else is saying... RETENTION views are the most essential factor.

    I added 10k retention views to my video and did the likes and comments with vagex and enhanced views. and my video is nowhere to be seen. The competition isnt bad either. Starting to get frustrating.

    I noticed recently that sometimes there is a longer delay for youtube to rank your videos but your videos will rank soon...
    I have been only using vagex and enhance views to give views, likes and comments.

    One of my video was uploaded 2 weeks ago...for one week it was on page 18 it didn't budge no matter what i did...then it reached page 7 and the rank was decreasing... and then 2 days ago it reached page 1 in a high competition niche and rank is increasing and i am getting natural traffic.

    @Oblivion ... If it doesn't appear in search at all you need to get it indexed.

    As in you can't find your video in the search at all? If that's what you're saying than I'm having this issue too even in low comp niches... and I found some people with recent comments that are saying the Youtube search has been messed up for about a month now.

    This is how i rank my videos.... When i upload my video i make sure that my keyword is in title, description(I think a lengthy description kind of helps), tag, channel name and a few times in transcript/caption. Then i put it in to vagex and enhance views to add a few views, likes and comments and wait till it gets pass the views stuck mark (301 views)...then buy some high retention views along with vagex and ehanceviews still giving views,likes and comments . Add some more views, likes and comments over a few days and the video should reach at least page 1. In a low competition niche it would have reached #1 after you have received the retention views.

    Yeah but me and other people are having the issue of the video not even showing up in the search unless you type the EXACT title of the video... I do exactly what you just said and I can't find them ... out of like 14 videos I found 2 of them in the search and so thats a bunch of credits I put towards the videos along with buying views and I get no traffic from them.. it sucks

    yes all pages bro for multiple niches... these are super low competition..for example 2 months ago I uploaded a video to these niches and ranked like 2nd page within hours of uploading with no views.. just good description, tags, and title.

    But now this new search problem is a mess because I'm not seeing anything unless I type exact titles. My plan now is to just upload around 5 of the same video to 5 different accounts and see if any of them stick to the search.
