    I just can't do anything on Youtube anymore in last month or two. Can't get a single view for any of my vids as they just can't appear in search and related video results. Whatever i tried, it failed and I see lot of people have same problems.

    Anyone knows how thew hell to come out from this situation ? Youtube was one of my main traffic sources but it's completely dead for me now :eek:

    yeah youtube has been weird since 2010 began. Im losing a lot more accounts recently but at the same time a lot more of my vids are going viral doing like 100K views a month. I have been doing a lot of simple experiments latley and see if I can figure out anything.

    heres one tip that has been working:

    dont use their single uploader (even for mutiple uploads)

    instead post this URL in the address bar after you log in to YT with your account: http://www.youtube.com/my_videos_multiupload

    it will give you the "not supporeted" message at the top but it still works. More of my accounts seem to be staying alive use that link.

    it's not that, I would get thousands of views in few hours if my vid get included in search. It's just that time for videos to be included in search and related index was 10 minutes before and days or never nowadays

    It seems to depend on the time of day. Earlier (around 11am EST time) all my videos got indexed within 10 minutes. Usually if I try around 8pm-11pm (before bed) they don't get indexed for...well could be days sometimes!

    Pain in the ass I know, youtube has been crazy lately.
