    So like almost 2 weeks ago I uploaded a video in a 1.2m keyword and got it as 4th result page one. It stayed there for a few days then went down to like 12th page and then disappeared. I haven't seen it in around a week and I'm just wondering how long do you guys think it will take for it to come back? This happened on another video of mine where it was top ranked then went to the 12th page and after a while it came back higher than before, however I was not really tracking it so I'm not sure how long it took. Anyways these are legit videos on a legit channel that I'm just trying to rank so I can gain exposure, so no, it is not a duplicate. It also has a good retention rate. Please help, thank you! :)

    Unlisted method. My other video used that too and it has been perfectly fine so I don't believe so.

    Did you buy views for the video that is still there as well? If so, where they the same type of views and from the same vendor?

    dont ever purchase views man...be it high retention or low retention....youtube has made a lot of changes lately yes the unlisted method STILL works but you will need to provide genuine views...ever heard of true view ads? this is what you need to use to drive traffic to your videos also make sure you refer to this thread:http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/youtube/704535-how-i-get-safe-real-views-my-videos.html

    as abhi mentioned. Do not ever purchase views. I tell everyone not to. Its not 2012 anymore. Times have changed and only the fittest survive in this climate now a days.

    Thanks for dropping that link Abhi, great source.

    Yes, so it's not a matter of not ranking, it's more of a matter of how long does it usually take to come back? The same thing happened on my other video but I didn't really keep track of it, whereas this video I am trying to keep track of.

    The method you linked to is basically exactly what I did. It DID work since I was ranked 4th on the first page out of 1.2m results but the method doesn't work as well since it is pushed down very far on the rankings for a while before being brought back to where it was originally or even higher. I'm just curious about the time it takes for it to be brought back, but I guess it's not really an answerable question so it was kind of pointless to post this thread.

    Likes, Comments, I also have ~20k subs that are active so lots of legit views from there as well as a large amount of views from search from when it was ranked. Also facebook shares and comments.

    I dont know what more to say may be you should also try to like other channels in your niche, also try posting to reddit also make sure you use your keyword as a filename also try to get tags using this hqsuggest.com also make sure that you produce your video according to the recommended setting by YT.

    I've done all that. I don't think you understand my question. I am not looking for tips on ranking my video as I have already done that. The 301 method (at least for me) will rank your video for a few days then it will go to a really low ranking for an amount of time and then come back up to the original ranking or better. My question is if anyone know that amount of time.
