    Hi guys,

    I dont know if you ever noticed, but sometimes when you upload videos its like they are ranked right after you upload them. But the most time you are uploading videos they dont get any traffic right after you upload them.

    Did you ever experienced this by yourself? I got this situation few times. And I think its a special day or time.

    Do you know more about it?

    I understand a bit of what you are saying. The highest I've ranked after uploading is on page 4. Don't know how or why. Its just random for me.

    Maybe youtube updates the ranking of videos every couple hours. If you upload it right before an update you could get some views

    I dont' know about how it can affect the rank but surely timing is important.
    According to the time you upload your videos you could get more asian, european or american traffic

    Know your audience first.
    Study top youtubers as well, see what times they post.

    I think when you receive traffic like this is it usually one of these three things:
    1)Low competition so it ranks easily
    2)The category you have it listed under provides some views that kickstarts it (such as if you upload it as "Technology"
    3)If the video is something that people want the freshest information on, you might get views from people who search for "[keyword], today". Because you had uploaded it that day your video will get some views that way.

    Those are my explanations for the views you get early on, but as far as ranking goes, it might just be that some of your videos that ranked instantly were lower competition than the ones you are comparing results with.
