    it's been 9 days and my video is stuck on page 2?
    it very briefly showed up as #5 on the 3rd day and then dropped, despite my purchase of 45k retention views and 100 likes and 2 pyramids.

    is it because my video is still too young? if so, how long is it supposed to take?

    also, will vagex hurt? it sucks that their success rate is very low (only less than 10% of the likes and views are recognized by youtube), and viewing for credit interrupted so frequently.

    its got to be some what of a factor as the older the video is the longer its been indexed, the more views/comments/likes etc it will have

    Might be there are many drops in likes, comments. Also, drip feed the views to not on the red signal from youtube.
