So I have been off the youtube scene for a while now. I'm back and it looks like all those 301+ spammy videos have vanished! Also it seems that people who unlist with about 2000 views to get 1st pages has also gone too. I understand why the 301 spammy videos have gone, but why have the unlisted people stopped too? I have been observing the niches that used to have a large influx of these types of videos for about a week now and it seems there are none. I am also glad all these spammy videos are gone because real content creators can finally flourish. Should be much easier now to rank videos whitehat-style!
