    Might be a wrong place to ask but ill give it a shot anyway..

    So i got over 600 subscribers, i posted a vid like 4 days ago, it has over 100comments/likes over 70 favorites and almost 2k views

    When i type my video's title in the search bar, its only on 3rd page and its going down as i write this (yesterday was 3rd page 4th vid and now 3rd page 8th vid)

    i dont understand how do ppl get to 1st search page? i checked some of the vids on the 1st page and most of them are not better than mine, some of them have like 1k views 1comment and 0likes/favs

    iv done some research on my own and i though that Title/Description/Tags/Comments/Likes/Favs affect on what page ur vid shows up but appearantly im missing something

    so could someone explain whats happening on youtube and why is my vid is so hard to find?

    p.s. sorry if its the wrong place to ask, but im desperate here, help!

    YT SE is a bit of a black art but there is a large lag between views / like on vids and movement in the SE results. It's not real time.

    Youtube have updated as you may have seen. They are still coming back to the old terms so it might not be real time yet. However, are the videos above you more bigger in likes or views? If they are, then that might be the case.

    In my experience the search algorithm of YT is totally weird and twisted. Once could spend years trying to reverse engineer this ever shifting animal, but I personally took another path conversely to what I do with google, for instance... Spread your bets on bigger numbers instead of gambling on just one horse and the problem will clear up. ;)

    i got it figured out now, all my vids are on the 1st page now because i wrote a ton of tags/ made a short ant clear title/ extra tags in the description

    when i type my vids name it appears on the 1st page search page along with the other vids that has like 100x more views than my vid :D
