    Hey,

    I uploaded a video 4 days ago, boosted it with 25K High Retention views, added 100+ likes, 50 favorites and a bunch of hand-written comments. However when I search for my main keyword the video does not show up at all, I've checked the first 50 pages and it's nowhere to be seen, even though it has a very high retention rate and a lot of views. However when I filter for "This Week" it shows up as the first result. I find it very weird that it's not showing up AT ALL for my main keyword without this filter. Might this be because my description has a lot of spammy tags at the end or because of the short video length? (1:11).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm basically clueless here.

    Did you created some backlinks for your video? And Social Signals?

    Make sure to add some of them and hopefully, the rankings would start improving.

    Maybe you should wait a little more as its just 4 days...bcz maybe, your competitors are making more social signals,HR + LR views, etc.

    First of all thank you for your replies. However it's weird that it doesn't even show up at all, some people copied my video and uploaded it just yesterday, they're at page 17-20 without any views/likes/comments. Therefor I'm thinking I must be doing something wrong.

    I am having exactly the same problem. Having videos with a lot of views and likes but the videos are nowhere to be seen. Its really weird why this is happening. I am really curious to the answers that the OP will get here and see what is causing this.

    That could be just Youtube Dance or you must have missed your video somewhere in all those pages.
    Just keep doing proper marketing and eventually you should see the results.

    Just wait, this happened to my video.

    It took two weeks after I boosted with HR views for it to rank. It all of a sudden ranked on page 2 from no where.

    I'd almost given up on that video. It literally jumped to page 2 overnight.

    At 25k views you should add more likes. Also make sure you have good title, description and tags.
