    Hi BHW Community !

    First I would like to know what is the fastest way to get a video indexed as soon as possible , cause when I upload them I takes hours to see them appearing in youtube search results . As far as I know from my experience If I send views immediately after uploading or if my video get instant natural views , video gets indexed within minutes but the problem is when my keyword is not popular or when I dont have money to buy views , im not able to index it within minutes , so all new videos will take advantage during that time in my niche !

    Secondly , a lot of time when I visit popular channels in youtube , almost in all cases those channels have a video in home that plays immediately while somebody visits their channels . Im planing to build a channel and I wanna make it look professional one . My question is : does views in that way ( from channel and not opening video ) are counted from youtube for that video ? Do they have the same value as natural ones , helping that video to rank better ? If not in this way I wont have that annoying video into my channel that plays all the time without clicking the play button !

    Hope somebody will be able to answer to me .

    Regards

    PS. I Apologize for the title ( channgel :p ) after I posted I saw my mistake !

    Practically all videos uploaded to YouTube are indexed within minutes, perhaps your problem is ranking and you should try the unlisted method
    Sure views from the YouTube channel page i.e the channel trailer are counted as valid views. The problem is that they usually result in lower retention views

    Thanks so much for your answer Tommy , now I have an idea about channel views , but about indexing , Im having this problem long time ago , im not concerned about ranking , my main focus is indexing in this case , cause I just tried a video yesterday , it took almost 10 hours to get indexed , no competition no nothing , I tried a keyword just for testing .. can my account has any influence here , Its older more than 1 year .. ?

    Better channel = better rankings of your videos but there is no reason because of which your ranking may be lower than normal. Try to build you meta data correctly (tags, description, name of the video). If you want good and fast rankings you need not only views. Also try to get some likes, comments, favourites, social signals and backlinks for your video. And don't forget that you need high retention views for ranking.
