    Hey guys,
    one year ago I had to let go my channel. Now I'm back, my channel have 47k subs. I ranked videos by unlisted method in those days (2015). How to rank videos now? What is the most important now?
    I know that unlisted method is now dead. I must rank videos in 'hard' niche (sport - football). I have read some posts here and this is what I got. To rank videos I need:
    - Long length videos
    - High retention (?)
    - likes and comments doesn't matter (?)
    Is it true? If high retention is important now I can't use sites like youlikehits, like4like etc. to get likes. I can add 1-2k high retention views after publishing video, will it help?

    I always have good title and description. I'm making quality videos - my one vid have 6,2 million views and still counting (50-60k in 48 hours), I have great thumbnails and tags.
    Help me guys, I want to start again as fast as I can! :)

    Have a great day, thanks!

    Hi mate,
    I'm doing something similar in a "smaller" version, all i can tell you is that you can get some views and help your video go "viral" and rank with social medias
    I hope people will help you, I'll follow your thread to learn aswell :)

    Wishing you good luck

    Views are views right :), if you can get some views from facebook and some likes It will always be good, except if your facebook is totally different from your videos

    Seems like it. I have an add-on on Chrome that shows how many likes/comments/shares (something like that) on FB the video has. It's pretty neat. It says one of my videos is "heavily shared on FB". Guess it counts, it can't hurt.

    {Watched time+retention} is the most important factor in ranking videos. Long videos always rank better.

    It's the same as it has always been. Try to avoid buying likes/comments/views they will just mess up your rankings

    vidlQ Vision?

    No, it's dead I think.

    Adding some HR views (1-2k) after publishing the video will be good?
