    A few of my videos afte ruploading a couple days ago are not coming up when I seach them on youtube and are sitting on 0 views, the videos are up and are public still but because there not on the search engine im getting no views for alot of the vids? Why is this happening very frustrating as usually alot of them would have a few hundred views by now

    to get your video up in search it should have good tags and must be monetized.
    youtube has a higher priority for monetized content.

    I know this is obvious, but have you changed the MD5 on the video? I've heard some stuff about Youtube not ranking videos with identical MD5's to the original. :)

    How do you change the MD5 of the file? This might be the problem, youtube may have upped there game with this even further

    I dunno how to just change it straight off the bat, but if you put the video into an editor and do a small edit like taking a second off, that works :)

    okay, so it could be a mesh in yt ranking, it has already happened in the past. We must wait a few days, if the problem is not solved the problem is deeper...

    Google is after all of you. They have detected your methods and have tagged your accounts. OMG CHAOS!!!!!

    No, just kidding. What happen is there is an update going on, if your account is not on their premium list you won't get crawled. They are using a cache version while they update. Just wait a few days. But yeah also the MD5 for reuploads is the solution.

    How long has it been? it is not "instant" that these videos go into the search engine. I had the same issue to only find myself in the wrong and the video finally was posted to the searches about 72 hours later. Just wait, it should show up :)
