    Hey guys,

    So I'm ready to start ranking my first video (game hack).

    Since I'm starting with a 50$ spend, I don't want my video deleted instantly so my question would be, why does a lot of people suggest to not use sensitive words like free , hack , cheat etc cause it will get you banned but if you check some popular niches like 'castle clash hack' you can see that there are videos that are up for 7 months and so on? They are using hack and cheats and everything.

    About ranking, I will send only hr views, likes, dislikes, comments and some subs. Do you think it's enough to rank a medium comp video? Or do I need something else like web 2.0 embeds?

    Any tips would help me and anyone who will read this :p

    For Ranking any video on google or youtube it takes 2 things, first is good on page SEO like Title, description, tags and second is engagement which is watch time, like, comments and shares. And if you take care of those two you should rank easily :D

    How would you check competition for youtube video?

    I can see views, account age, comments and likes, subscribers.

    But what else should I check? Some kind of backlinks? And how would you check them? I dunno if ahrefs is showing the right info for YT videos.

    Where are you going to spend those bucks? Also I am not into that niche but what I have heard is that the big guns in that niche use report bots to auto report any videos that come up and thus take you down though I am not sure if thats true or not.
    I would suggest you not to spend the money on starting instead let the video sit idle and gain natural ranking and see if its still alive on youtube.

    the "big guns" use more than "auto flag bots". trust me.
