Unlisted method stopped working completely from around 10 days?

    Till a month back unlisted method was working fine. Around a month back it became a little hit and miss, with half the videos completely failing. And now since 10 days, the unlisted method seems to give the videos no advantage at all after publishing.

    I have tried everything - adding double the views than earlier, adding more shares, embeds and social signals before making the video public. Everything is failing.

    Anyone else seeing this? Any ideas how to get past this?

    Maybe!
    YouTube now checks videos with fake views and zero them immediately.
    Maybe thats why. Plus I have been searching for newly uploaded videos by mass uploaders and instead of the 301+ im only seeing less than 100 views. Maybe YouTube has taken more actions to counter ppl who use that method.

    But if you are seeing videos with less than 100 views it must mean the unlisted method is working? Youtube removed the 301 block policy from a few days so we won't be seeing those anymore!

    Actually I am seeing the videos ranking for low competition keywords, but not for high competition ones. Earlier they used to easily rank for every keyword. Any tricks to rank for higher competition keywords?

    What I was saying is by checking newly uploaded videos I can see that their views are not that 301 anymore. Just less than 100 because YouTube filtered the views and videos dont rank.

    My views are not being filtered. Youtube is showing 5000+ views when I make the videos public. But not effect on ranking at all, even with over 1000 social signals and all.

    Hi..., I'm also facing the same problem. Getting less than 100 views for 301+ views. And here is the solution, If you are using bot then just change proxy for every 50 views i.e., you need to change 6 proxies to achieve 301 views.

    It's working fine for me. Try this!!

    Thanks

    Theres always some ways to crack things . And people who do that just dont reveal the trick in the first days. They will try to bank from it until they get tired or when its about to get patched they will come up and share it in public or sell it.
    A simple advicefor everyone: lets not wait for someone to share his tricks. Find your own way out. Just saying.

    Did you check the views after a day or so? See if they remain 301 or they decreased.

    Is it the same niche as the one for which u used to rank before with the unlisted method?
    If its a high competition niche then its obvious.
    Otherwise try to do the same for some other niche and you can make a conclusion.
    Method is still working for some others.

    Yes everything is the same. Same niche, similarly produced videos all original, similar length, same seo, same techniques. Earlier I could get upto 50,000 views on a video in a couple of days by ranking, now not even 2,000. The views I personally send remain, no drop on those later.

    This started right around when youtube stopped the 301 views check.

    so my video was still able to rank with my version of the unlisted method but my purchased views disappeared a few hours later. not sure if this is because of the unlisted posting or just bad quality purchased views.
