    Hey,

    So recently Youtube changed how suggested videos work. It's affected my channel quite a bit, going from 300+ subs per day down to 150 per day.

    How are you guys dealing with it and what are you doing to recover your lost traffic and subscribers?

    Regards,

    I've been hit :) from 30 subs/day to 150-200 subs/day - good for me. Youtube is probably testing new things or someting because its not normal.

    The "Suggested Videos" area no longer suggested 4+ of your own videos. Maybe only a single video gets suggested.

    You should add the related keywords, video will display back. Recently, youtube has just updated the age- limited algorithm then it can make you have difficulty.

    I just went to a video and was suggested 9 from the same channel+5 with the same woman doing collaborations.

    Maybe the other comment is correct. I started a thread a couple weeks ago because my Android app only showed one video on my channel (I actually have 4) and only 2 of 3 of the channels that I recommend. Turns out I had the "restricted" filter enabled. There is nothing really wrong with my videos, but something got them filtered. Check if your settings are set to "restricted" at the bottom of the YouTube page.

    Do sub not increase? Or is your sub dropped?
