    Hey guys! Iam just astonished after seeing 8.9k views video named martial arts and with no likes dislikes or comments on uk YouTube homepage. This clearly shows that key of ranking is somewhat related to views. Need some replies to figure out the hidden secret!!

    Ya I got 47k views last week off some stupid kangaroo fighting video I ripped. Don`t know what was special about it, cause my other videos only have 100 views at most. Maybe it`s something to do with the tags and the way YT see`s the video.

    It's odd how youtube decides to rank the videos. Would really be interested to know their formula.

    I think it depends on geo targeted views.

    They use trends, they put videos up that contain or are related to trending searches in the country, so lots of people in the UK must be searching for martial arts/fighting videos, that as well as many other things.

    It all depends on how fast the views come within the first day it's uploaded for it show up on the homepage
