    OMG this is driving me crazy there is this one video that just wouldn't get ranked on youtube. I've tried likes comments subs. I ordered about 50K high retention views and even though that most of the videos on the first page have views between 1000 - 10000 I still am not able to rank this video. It is just stuck on page 8!!

    I've always ranked videos with minimal views with no problems what so ever but I dont know what could be wrong now.


    Please somebody tell me about any other factor that I'm missing here. Maybe I have to wait about a week to see results but it has already been so long. I Just HATE YOUTUBE.

    Did you build any links to the video? If not, you better get started...

    They have made some changes to something view's suppliers can't do.

    What's the source of your views? YT wont rank your video if the source is 100% retention from mobile/direct source. You need 60-100% from different sources: facebook, Google+, twitter, websites.

    Check the amount of backlinks your competitors on page 1 have - if they have loads more....that's probably the reason. Also, what's your video like? Have you ripped it? Are there duplicate videos? Is your video also ranked on page 1 (someone has uploaded it before you), what's the video transcription like....does the audio say any keywords in your video?

    YouTube isn't going to show duplicated videos on page 1 - ask yourself the above questions and remember that it takes more than just a few likes, comments, favs, and views now.

    I have about 6 videos and none of them are ranked.
    They are all 2 weeks old and they have between 5.000-20.000 views, 50-300 likes, 50-300 favorites,50-300 subscribers.Views are not mobile high retention views.

    Not to play devil's advocate but is your video providing something of value? I see so many people trying to rank videos on YouTube that completely miss the viral component that organically pushes you up the ranks. Ripped videos or videos that simply show highlights of a video game are far more difficult to rank than funny videos or how-to videos.

    Right now I have used three sources of views from different places so it looks really natural. It is a %100 unique video made by me and it is a tutorial so it does provide value. I've checked about the first 30 pages and no there is absolutely no duplicate of the video. The title desc and tags are all optimized perfectly.

    Again like I said I've done this before and have enough experience. I have ranked many videos but it is just this one video in particular that stubbornly does not want to move in ranking.

    I still dont get the big idea about backlinks. I though youtube's search engine does not make any value for backlinks unlike google.

    When I mean the source I mean the traffic source (you can find it in YT analytics) - where are your views coming from basically. e.g. Search terms, related videos, facebook, twitter, mobile/ direct??

    Other than that - build backlinks to the video (with your keyword as the anchor text).

    Traffic source is mostly from mobile, twitter and facebook.

    Okay so right now I found my video on the second page and half way through. That is better but still kind of sucks because It has more views that any other video for that keyword.

    thanks for the advice I'll try this later. But are the backlinks used to rank the video in google or youtube or both?

    I mean could you really just rank a video without views. If so this explains why I sometimes see (3 views) for videos on the first page a of very competitive niches.

    I don't think backlinks are a big factor in YouTube's search engine rankings. A competitor of mine with only 5 backlinks is ranking #2 while another competitor with 700+ backlinks is ranking #3. (I'm ranking #1, :D)

    But as you mentioned above, you just went to the second page. Just wait it out and you should reach #1 within no time.
