As many YouTubers out there know, getting the top comment on larger channels help that channel grow exponentially. If done well, and you content is high-quality and entertaining, some top comments can score you anywhere between 30 ~ 90 subscribers sometimes. We do this from time to time on our channel, upvoting our specific comment roughly 4 ~ 8 times by other accounts (not using a proxy). However, we have now found that YouTube now purposely never allows us to push into the front page of "Top Comments" anymore. Even when scoring 50 upvotes on a new video, comments from the same time-frame with less than 10% of our upvotes were pushing us down. This wasn't new comments replacing old ones. This was straight up "No matter how many likes you have on a comment, you will not climb the hierarchy". People can still see our comments & respond to them. But it just will never reach the first page of comments. Does anyone have any strong idea on why this is happening?
