    I hope someone who knows more about this than I do can help me out. I am ranking 6th place for this highly searched average competition keyword but I don't get alot of organic viewers (only 200 per day) while I see other videos for this keyword that had millions of views (over a longer period of time but still).

    Can someone with great youtube knowledge explain what is going on please? Thanks!

    I am sure those million of views are not from ranking. There are millions of videos with millions of views and they are not even in the top 10 for their keywords.
    About your video, make sure you are really ranking the position you talking about. If its true then check your title, make sure it's convincing enough to attract the visitors.

    YouTube is tricky because it's hard to tell where the traffic for someone else's video is coming from. Videos could be getting views from a collection of YT keywords or from other places, like in Google, forums, Facebook, etc. And then you have the possibility that they got a lot of views from subscribers.

    sometimes it looks like you are ranking higher because you search for the same things often and youtube 'suggests' that video to you

    its all about how they target you

    Thank you for your answers. I did check it on multiple devices and a VPS before. The rankings for the keyword are the same :/.

    just a thought, but maybe some of there traffic is coming from their channel or subscribers and not the keyword itself, i do personally find myself looking through the videos list of users if you know what im saying.

    In general I feel youtube is starting (or already far into really) decline. You don't get to see any new video suggestions anymore on the homepage, instead you only get videos from channels with millions of followers.

    Ranking in youtube is bullshit, Most of views coming from suggestions.

    But they are monopol. No real competition and with today standards, 60fps and 4k, I see no new competition coming.

    I wonder how you can get in the suggestions of another (popular same niche) video. Similar tags and thus keywords don't seem to work.

    You're right, and they know it. I can't think of another company right now that has virtually 0 competition
