    I see many video marketers uploading the exact same video multiple times for different keywords - while still being able to rank very well.

    In my past experience, when I've uploaded the same content on different accounts - I've had more difficulty ranking.

    Anybody have some insight on how to upload 1 video multiple times without a ranking penalty?

    You shouldn't have a problem ranking your videos even if they are duplicates... Are you sure your writing the title and description of the vids with your keyword(s) sprinkled correctly?

    I've had problems with this as well. I've used correct keywords and titles and descriptions. For whatever reason, its harder for me to rank duplicated content.

    Could saving the video to different formats play a role in this potentially?

    I'm having trouble trying to find my videos in the search. As of lately I've only been able to find a couple out of around 14 now... this is very frustrating. I'll admit most of them are just reuploaded with a few seconds taken off and different music. But the new ones that are 100% unique still can't be found even after a week of being uploaded with views/likes/subs/favs... I don't care about comments until I can actually rank and find it. I tried the MD5 changer and still can't find them.

    The most annoying part is that there are some people ripping my videos and theirs show up in the search from just a couple days ago... uuugggghhhhh :( whhhyyyyy

    Ranking videos is way easier than ranking a site. Even if there is a high amount of competition.

    Say you want to use the same video but rank it for different keywords will YT accept them if you change the filename and the title? I was thinking it might analyse the data of the video to tell if its dupe?

    Hey @Cratos, do you run your videos through a MD5 changer?

    Or just re-upload the same exact video?

    I just re-upload the exact same file of the video. Sometimes I change the name of the file. It is best to use original unique content though if you want to reap the maximum benefits.

    Use Video Spin Blaster. You can either buy it, or get it for free via a crack - it's a very simple crack (Google it).

    I use it ALL the damn time. I don't know exactly what it is changing within the file, but it's the same file size as the original, even if you spin it a good 500 times, same everything.

    Good luck to you, sir! :D
