    software generated rankings.Those who used that method had a risk to be wiped out from the list.Hence you can try for that.Even your 1000 views is not enough to rank top.Good day.

    What search are you going for? The quality of view time vs video length is required to rank a video very high. If the views are 30 seconds on a 3 minute video, it will get outranked and beat down by videos that have higher view retention and more time. Simple solution is to buy higher retention views and add some likes comments and a small amount of subscribers to boost the video on YouTube rankings. As for Google, go with backlinks of high quality. Also, why don't you try to build up some social properties and market the bands that way to get more of a community focus.

    I don't think there is a need to pay anyone to do that. Share your video's link here and people will help guide you on what you're doing wrong/right. If you're no comfortable sharing the link on the forum, feel free to PM me with it.

    i tried to change the title/description/tags and I'm not sure what is up. If you search the the band "marshall railroad" the video doesnt load up. The video the loads up is the producer/video editor comes up but that only has 180 views. the same video under my bands youtube page, has over 8,500 views. i am doing something wrong, but I'm not sure what

    I am pretty sure changing your tags can reset or affect your rank. I remember reading that on this forum when I was first getting into YT. I'm not 100% sure... maybe let your video cure for a few days and see if it starts ranking again.

    You have a lot of views, but are they quality views? What I mean is, did they watch the video 25% through or 100% until the end?

    I see you have a lot of likes and comments which is usually very helpful in ranking your video, so I can see why you are so frustrated because user engagement is usually the key to outranking your competition. It looks like you're on the right track. One thing I always recommend to people is to use the Closed Captioning and Annotation features that YT offers. Using those features certainly will not affect your rank in a derogatory manner.

    I'm not sure if using a URL shortener in your description can hurt your rank. I tried to look it up but couldn't find any info. Maybe someone else can touch on that.

    what should i put into the Closed Captioning and Annotation features that YT offers? our website? we have been on tv and magazines and things of that sort so i know that many people are watching us.

    does anybody know how to copy a video off of a website so i can post it on our youtube. the video is from our last tv gig. i'm looking for a free program. here is a link to the video if it helps... http://www.wfmz.com/news/Marshall-Railroad/-/121458/16087232/-/bcgqql/-/index.html

    Use your song lyrics in the CC. Put your Band's name/website/keywords in the annotations.
