    Hi,

    I have a video on youtube that doesn't show up in the title search even though it has more views then the same video posted by others. It is my video and shows up when you put the title and one additional word but not with just the title. Why could this be?

    You are not ranking for your keyword. Try using the tool and make sure you got hr views to back the keyword.

    Nowadays, YouTube ranking is dependent on a host of several factors, with view count taking a back seat. The major criteria considered by YouTube include: Audience retention (time watched, average view duration), User Engagement (likes, comments, shares, favorites, subscriptions) and Channel Authority (age, no. of quality videos for a certain niche) . Also note that these factors are not absolute, but rather they are measured continuously like a graph over a period of time e.g. per day, so if any of them drop then your ranking will also drop.

    Adding to what Tommy said, I don't think it would hurt to also send some blog comments backlinks, or similar, to your video. This will give your video some authority which may help you appear faster.

    No doubt but if you know anything about YouTube its more than backlinks if you don't do pre research your efforts are as good as gone.
