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 ) after I posted I saw my mistake !
