    Last night I uploaded a video with a certain keyword, lets say for argument's sake that the keyword is "Turtle Neck Sweaters".

    Today, I looked at the video and it now has 138 views. I clicked on one of the related videos, which was about half way down the list and also about "Turtle Neck Sweaters" but uploaded by someone else over a year ago and it has 4,561 views.

    On this video, 12 out of the 18 related videos are my videos, all which have nothing to do with turtle neck sweaters!

    Obviously this is brilliant but I have no clue how I did it. If anyone has any kind of logical explanation, please do share!

    The only thing of any interest that I've found is that the other person's video only has one tag which makes no sense, which is "whatsmynameeedemmmoooooooooo", which may have something to do with it.

    Just went back on it and now only 2 of the related videos are mine. Weird.

    Related videos are based on the tags that you use. If you use similar tags then you will rank in the related videos.

    That's my point, there are no related tags. Anyway, it's gone back to normal now. I think it was just some sort of blip. Mods can delete this thread if you want.

    I would go for the top 3 EMDs only. If they aren't available then get a branded if the keyword is good and rank it.
