    Hey guys, so I recently got into CPA and I started making youtube videos as a way to promote the it. I used QQTube to boost my views (retention views) likes and shares (g+, facebook). Yesterday, to my surprise I couldn't find my video anymore when searching with my keywords on YouTube, even though it was ranked 3rd/4th when searching for it a few hours before. The only way to find my video is is to put " around its exact name when searching and it will come up, so it may not be deindexed in the end? I'm confused. Also it's worth noting that this video is ranked first on Google when searching with the exact same keywords.

    Any tips/help would be appreciated.

    Edit: I think it's worth noting that my views aren't removed, in fact they are not even frozen.

    Also, you may not be banned YET because this is like a "soft-ban" that craigslist does with "ghosting" ads.. it looks live to you, everything can still be viewed, but if it KEEPS being viewed while unlisted, they'll know the traffic is from just a few sources [even if masked] and they'll deduce "gaming" of their system and the ban-hammer comes after..
