    Hello guys! Today I checked one of my videos and it was ranked #3 on the first page. I asked some of my friends to check it and same thing for them. But when I searched it from my VPS (which is located in France) it's on the second page so I decided to change my IP and try it on my own computer. So I changed my IP and did a search and the video was on the second page. Then I used a romanian proxy (i'm from romania) and the video was #3 on the first page, lol. Looks like it is #3 only for Romania but I don't get it why it is on 2nd pages for the other countries :(
    Anyone got any idea why? Did this happen for you?
    The video is in english by the way and it used to be on the first page.

    Home Page:
    YouTube search results are localized by I.P, this is why different results are displayed from different locations when searching for the same keywords.

    Other things which changes the search results are Cookies, Cache, whether you are logged in to your Account or not and the Browser used (believe it or not but you get *slightly* different results from I.E and FireFox, off by maybe 1)

    Yes but I don't get it why it is on top 3 only for romanian people since the video is targeting US and worldwide people.. Do you know if it will start showing on 1st page for other countries too after some time?
