    Hey guys,

    I regularly use the unlisted method, no spam videos, all genuine. I just do unlisted for about 12 hours, get as many links, shares, views as possible before i take it public to jump to the top of rankings and it will normally stay there as its relevant.

    I took my video public with 4,900 views, a ton of links and social signals, articles and it seemed to index then disappear instantly!

    The sickening thing about it is its a cover of a KISS track and the band themselves and Gene Simmons have posted about it on fb and twitter!!

    Now im left devastated because its not appearing in search even with the direct name.

    Strange thing too when it went public it went straight to number 4 for "punk cover", i then ran ranktracker to check all search terms, it showed great rankings across the board and then disappeared instantly.

    Ive tried submitting it for indexing with google and anywhere else I can find but im at a complete blank now :(

    any suggestions?



    Thanks guys

    Kob

    the only way of finding it is going to our channel /punkrockfactory and seeing it on the channel :(

    Thanks for the post about the video dude :)

    I wont be using unlisted again from now on, but is that right that YT would actually deindex it? fair enough not count views or anything but the fact that its non existant in the index is such a disappointment! Now my only chance of people finding it is to reupload (except there are lots of articles starting to come in for it now so its a waste!)

    Keep the original upload but then upload the same video but change it a little bit so that you keep your original ..but have that one for search purposes.

    sucks for SEO and the sheer amount of real fb likes, shares and various signal already on the video. Thats the one that would be ranking, a new one one just lost to the depths without a ton of links

    Unlisted method has been dead for quite some time. It was crazy effective back in the day. If you're going to be in the youtube game now, you need a serious plan of action. Encourage you to review this section of the forum aggressively, but also look at some YT journeys and journals. Work hard, and push for your goals!

    Thing is that people have been saying that for years but i assure you its been working..I ranked second for "see you again" and first for "cover" about 4 months ago..

    Difference is a lot of people using the method are looking for quick fix spam, i run a bunch of music youtube channels that make covers and as its good quality content it works and sticks normally.

    This is the first time ive seen a video not index though, i wouldnt mind if the method didnt work and it didnt rank (which it did albeit for a very small time and then dissapeared)

    I dunno about you guys claiming that unlisted is dead. But for me it is still working fine. 301+ method is dead not the unlisted. Im still getting rank 4-10 for my 98 videos.

    Are you still able to rank videos with unlisted method? It has completely stopped working for me since November first week.
