    Ok so correct me if im wrong but this new algorith has changed things drastically. Im seeing videos at the top of search results with only 100 views. Whats going on??

    I boosted my video with 100,000 views and 1,000 Likes for it only to get to page 4 of search results. Can someone please enlighten me??

    Thanks

    check on your youtube account how much time they watch your video,not how many times.if those 100.000 views are fake ,then this will harm more than help.the more time user spend watching your video the higher your video will rank.

    Like, comment, and subscribe keep your vid sticky in the ranking. Long audience retention helps to push up the ranking. I am not talking about total minutes watched. I am referring to average minute watched per audience.

    Which is why popular music videos usually stay in first page and the ranking hardly drop.

    Previously, the YouTube algorithm suggested videos based on how many people clicked to watch a video. After March 14th 2012, the algorithm for suggesting videos are based on which videos contribute to a longer overall viewing session rather than how many clicks an individual video receives.
    So if you're making videos that people love and stick around to see, you'll find more of them appearing in our related videos, helping to grow your audience.
