    I was just curious like if I were to be unsucessful in a niche with my Youtube video if I could spin it around into something a bit different without interfering with my current authority/ranking from all likes and views. Like for example if I were titled "xyz free game download" and then a few days later changed it to "xyz keygen".

    It will change the page rank for old keyword. If thatsbwhat your going for than it should be no problem.

    Ok that works for me then. But I wouldn't have to go out and get a bunch more views would I? To rank the new keywords I mean.

    Sometimes I change descriptions and titles around a bit and see a difference in the youtube search results. I never mess with success but if a video isn't where I want it I will try and mix stuff up to better the rankings.

    Well it depends, if you believe the title you chose is good then go for it. More views don't hurt but you only need views a bit after uploading.

    Depends on the competition of the keyword you're changing it to.

    That may help.

    Providing the competition for the keyword keyword "xyz keygen" is not tough, using it in video title, description and meta tags can help you improve your video rankings.

    But note that not only keywords determine how your video ranks in search results. The factors that also have a huge impact on your videos rankings are:


    • Total views (the more the better);
    • Video age (Months Since Upload);
    • Total ratings, both positive & negative (i.e. Thumbs Up or Down) ;
    • Positive rating percentage (the more people 'like' your video, the better it may rank);
    • Total number of comments.

    So if your video is more aged, 'voted', commented on, etc. than the other ones than rank for "xyz keygen", you may edit title, description and tags.

    Title and description also play an important part for ranking so i think there is a chance you can lose your current ranking for the keyword if you mess up with the title and descriptions

    There shouldn't be any problem. If your video is ranked for "XTZ Free Download" it will be de-ranked and depending on the new keyword competition it will be ranked."

    K so to summarize this down to a sentence not a paragraph *cough cough*

    You video will change if you change the title...

    There will be a bad impact if you will change the title of your video.
