    Hi guys,
    I had a video that i uploaded 3 months ago.Seo was kinda terible so i put a little effort and i added some nice description,title and tags.In 1 day i managed to rank my video on page 1 of my keyword.The second day it got to page 2 and the 3rd day i don't see it anymore.
    My question is why did youtube ranked my video on page 1 in 24h ,then deranked it?
    My video had 22 views and top video had 150k views.Everybody had terible SEO and i was able to rank my viedeo pretty fast.
    thanks a lot!

    From what i can tell, when a video is deemed by youtube as "New" this gives it a short ranking bonus - i presume this is so that old popular content doesn't dominate a niche forever.

    If you edit the video, it seems it gives another chance but not too sure.

    Try ordering some views, likes/dislikes and comment.
    And see if that bring the video in top 10 pages agin.

    If yes then send some more videos and surely it will come up.

    Thanks for the suggestions.
    Was just curious why youtube ranked it on first page in 24h than deranked it.
    It was mostly testing purposes wanted to see if good SEO can rank my video.Seems without views it means nothing.My SEO was obviously good since it ranked on first page and the competition was just horible.

    This is the reason why you saw your video ranked to the first page. you should clear your cookies or open a private browser to check your ranking results.
