    Someone has stolen my video. Usually I don't care but now they rank higher than me too? My video was uploaded 10mins before his, he has less subscribers so what the fuck?

    My Video:
    131,000 Views
    976 Likes
    31 Dislikes
    303 Comments

    Stealers Video:
    17K Views
    426 Likes
    7 Dislikes (Gunna hit him hard with 600 Viralsocials dislike feature)
    104 Comments but i'm pretty sure at the time he surpassed me in ranking he had not very much of any of these things. In the search his video still says 89 VIEWS!

    So anybody know why this happens?

    It has better SEO. It uses the keywords more efficiently and has more backlinks to his video.

    Keywords meaning tags? This is our video titles (this is just a example)

    His Title:
    Jordan Muf Pranks The Dude ft. Chris Vanier

    My Title:
    Jordan Muf Pranks The Dude ft. Chris Vanier (Original Video) (Pranking Series Ep. 1)

    He might have more powerful Seo Backlinks to his YouTube Video. Also his views could be High Retention while yours are normal? But if he stole your content inform YouTube I'm sure they can take down the video since your the original owner. Good luck!

    Well I have 50k retention views for sure from viralsocials, and I only got out ranked when they started serving them. So how can I get SEO backlinks? I cant get it taken down because of copyrighted background music.

    Can you explain more of what you mean by "Optimized" what exactly did he do to "optimize" his video?

    Don't do that! Viral on YouTube mean positive or negative. You are just making his video popular.

    It might be a "viral boost" if he has done it in a quick amount of time his video will rank high for a little while then it will be assessed, if it doesn't take off (gain alot of exposure) it will start to fall in raking, it happens alot with PPD videos.

    I have 75k Natural views shouldn't I have more backlinks off the top since my viewers would be sharing? But if thats the case why is it that everyone says "Views and Likes Get You Best Rankings". So how can I start backlinks for my videos? What site/program do I have to use?

    Get some of your friends to flag the fuck out of the video, and have the reason as he stole it.

    Just checked if he has any backlinks and he has zero. I have more social shares too. Soo.... I don't see any clue on how this is happening.

    Views & backlinks get you the best results.

    Anyone that tells you otherwise has done 0 testing and just "churns and burns videos" with views.

    He is beating you probably on a number of factors, but we can't know unless you show the videos.

    Everything else is guess work.

    Not that I know of, sorry.
    But there are a few gigs on fiverr you can try, but they cant guarantee the video gets removed even with flags.

    And this is ranking for YouTube search or Google search? YouTube search I see most "top" videos for walkthroughs and let's plays with 0 backlinks outranking videos simply based on view retention, social signals, and how many related videos that video pushes views to. Anyone stating that "backlinks" help rank on YouTube search clearly doesn't watch or study any popular niches or categories. As for Google it is link quality, velocity, diversity, and finally social factors like views, comments, likes, subscribes, etc. YouTube SEO should at least be your standard. Other than that try HRV from the country you want to view your video like USA or China or something else. If you live in USA pump USA views, then target a country that would also provide valid subscribers and views from like UK or Germany. This will depend on your niche.

    I do not have the answer to your question but I do see it everyday on youtube. Videos with less views, social shares and backlinks out ranking another with more in every category. I want to know the formula so I can use it to rank my video.
