    Woke up this morning, took a look at my old Youtube channel which Google decided to hammer back in the Fall.

    Bugger me if all the crap that was outranking me isn't gone.
    All those 30 second videos of a still image with "Product Name - Discount" and a link underneath to an Amazon affiliate page or whatever - all gone.

    Traffic from Youtube has gone up almost 2000% in the last 48 hours.

    God knows what's happened. Maybe Google finally woke up and saw that their own flagship video site was full of crap.
    Wonder why it took the "Oh so clever" anti spam team 7 years to clean THEIR OWN site!

    Still can't complain. Good content based promotion and automation is working a treat - better than ever.

    The other side of the coin maybe? I do feel bad for some of those hammered last weekend - Youtube isn't much of a commercial channel for me and I know some of you guys relied on it. If I can be of any help let me know. (info or whatever)

     
    • Thanks Thanks x 2

    Nice video Scritty and congrats on the better rankings :)

    I didnt check youtube results as I was checking the rankings in Google SERPS so its goods to see your findings about youtube-

    Im not too sure we can narrow the issue down to short spammy videos because longer videos have been hit too - Just see the examples of the videos on how to lose weight from the previous thread http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-youtube-videos-seems-like-its-happening.html

    Off related topic: I've been studying your backlink tactics for a couple of your sites. Are all of your sites ranked the same way Scritty?
