    sorry - question about yourtube ranking.

    i uploaded a video 2 weeks ago.
    i bought about 6k retention views without likes or comments.
    3 days later, my video ranks (with my title) #5 for an hour. it drops to page 2, and page 3.
    i figured i need some comments. i bought 100 comments on fiverr. then i disappeared from youtube search results?!
    i noticed that those who ranked above me either:
    1, have comment ratio at 0.5%
    2, spammed descriptions with keywords

    the top ranked though did not spam description. so i bought the comments. the 100 comments though were posted in like 12 hours. is that what cause my disappearance?

    what did i do wrong?

    should i wait? or should i move on and start over by creating a new video? or even a new account?

    thanks for any tips.

    Your Fiverr gigged backfired and now I bet your YouTube videos are ghosted. Use a fresh IP and upload new videos not to leave
    any footprints and use a different service.

    You get 6k of views and 100 comments in the space of no time and wonder why youtube caught you. Seriously but some thought into it.

    Looks like you were too fast and too greedy. Next time, be more patient.

    actually it's 60K views (typo)..
    so how much time is appropriate?

    Make it realistic, look at the average views and comments for similar videos. You'd just keep going but at a realistic rate. You can use proxies and create G accounts etc (private proxies) then use them to add comments. Some decent backlinking to the video, it's not hard work but you need to be consistent, outsource it if need be but any "blast" type comment\view deals rarely work.

    now i see that my video is actually not ghosted, but it's on page 16 after 3 weeks.
    i have spent $40-$50 and it has 68K retention views plus 50 comments, 210 likes, 50 subs.

    is the video hopeless? should i put more money in? or should i start over?

    start over
    take note of the number of views on your competitors and dripfeed accordingly
    60k+ views, retention or not, will raise some flags for most niches if added too quickly and if you have an outbound link on the video, it'll be very obvious.

    You are lucky that Youtube did not ban your account. Some people get their accounts banned when they do this

    Basically that many views would look unnatural, unless you were getting the social shares and links to "recreate" going viral.

    Automation is just amount recreating a natural looking good video profile.
