    So I have been doing the cpa youtube thing for a while now and I have been making a pretty good amount over the past couple of months. Well recently I just threw up a video and it was up for maybe 2 days when all of the sudden BAM! It was bringing in so much traffic that the video alone was getting me 200 + a day. I looked and it was ranking for all the keywords I had been targeting. I was shocked cause I never expected it to go so well but when I looked at the stats a couple days later it showed I was getting 50-100 visits a day for my selected keywords... but "external website stats" it showed 1000-2000 hits a day... I checked the referrer thinking it was just views I was sending to the vid but it said a huge majority of them where from google. The views I send to my vids are always twitter, facebook, etc.

    So my question is what could of possibly of happened? I want to figure out the keyword/keywords it was ranking for and bringing in all that traffic for google but it doesn't even show it on the analytics... (the video has stopped making that insane amount now and is at like 30 a day now)...

    Is it possible my vid was put up by someone else by accident? I am just curious why it would say I am getting 1000+ hits a day from google but when I check it it shows maybe 100 at most a day :p Thanks in advance to anyone that might know what could of happened.

    If you figure it out, let us all know. LOL. I've seen many of my videos rank on youtube but then i've seen more of my videos NEVER rank. But ranking a video on google tends to bring in more $$$! :)

    YouTube ranking is screwy. When I used to mess with videos and ranking, I could have a video with nothing on it that would rank better than videos with tons of views, likes etc. and I would have just uploaded mine. I was never able to come close to figuring out their algorithm for ranking YouTube videos both within a YouTube search and on google. I'd assume that your video is ranking really well for one of your main keywords on G.

    This is so true, I just started trying to figure out how to index videos on google without getting it omitted, it almost looks like it is completely random.

    There's certain methods you can utilize to rank videos on Google, may of which are safe to use.

    Try and look for similarities on the videos ranking on google and the ones not and see if you can report anything back to us, you might have chanced upon a gold mine if this is happening repeatedly for you!

    Yeah I know, but first you need to get the video indexed in google.
    this is what happens

    I make a video and it gets indexed
    but when I search the keyword I tried to rank for the video is not shown
    untill I click on the show omitted results.

    Google marks the video as duplicate and does not show it in the results.

    that is my whole point though. I assumed I was but on you tube analytics it only shows I was getting traffic for my main keyword which was bringing in like 80-100 views total. Wouldn't it show the keyword I was ranking for instead that was bringing me 1000 views? I just find it odd that it shows nothing about it sept it says "google" and not a keyword exactly :p
