    What up guys!

    I am playing with YouTube for a last couple of days, but it seems YouTube plays with me ... My goal is to rank videos and monetize them with CPA.

    Videos are dancing around - I tried drip feed views, HR views, likes, social signals, comments.

    But it looks to me that their system is smarter every day.

    I only tried the public method, but if you think that unlisted can do better, tell me/us more about that.

    I did rank a second, third position but I've been also de-ranked or ghosted?, I don't know.

    I am not ranked in the incognito tab/window but when I change something in the description, I am in the top 3. When I refresh the page a couple of seconds/minutes later, I am no more in the top positions but somewhere at the bottom, like 200th.

    When I search for the keyword in the window where I am logged in, I am somewhere around 5th spot.

    I can see my video in the suggested column too till I log in with another account, my video completely vanishes from the YouTube.

    So, my main question is, and I am aware that this would help not only me but a lot of other guys here seeking this information ...

    Where is the problem?

    I have similar tags, description, and title like the top 3 videos. I have original video, original thumbnail, copyrighted free music. The URL link isn't in the description, it's only in the video (the top 3 guys have it in the description). I am using my own old school aged account. No proxy, nothing, just a clean old account that wasn't used anytime in the past for any of the BHW method.

    What can be a problem here?
    1. low quality views?
    2. low quality likes?
    3. too much views
    4. too little views?
    5. too much likes?
    6. too little likes?
    7. gained views too fast?
    8. gained views too slow?
    9. bad service (meaning retention panel)?
    If you know anything about this, please give us some golden nuggets or if you weren't successful, just tell us. Every knowledge is welcomed!

    YT is a distributed system. Video dancing means that the YT server handled your request is not up-to-date. Ranking is not real-time.

    That explains dancing in YT SERP. At the momen 1 you request is handled by YT server 1. At the moment 2 you request is handled by YT server 2. Even if your IPs are the same.
    The problem is YT Servers are not synced at this moment. It takes some time to sync all servers.

    All fault is your browser cache memory. Just clear the cache memory then youtube shows the right search result.

    Nope, your local cache can't help in sync of several millions YT servers.
    You should understand that YT is not a single server. It's a very large system of several millions servers.
    It's not possible to sync all data in this kind of system at once.

    So you are pointing at the YouTube - they need more time?

    I thought that this means that at first YT check my video seems legit so it is somewhere at the top of rankings, but when they do some more of research they find out my video has bought HR views and they de-ranked me.

    From all the experiences I heard and saw on this forum I think that it’s obvious for the YouTube.

    But if I am wrong, tell me, I am thrilled to understand their ranking system so I can be most of the time successful with my ranking journey.

    Thanks!

    Yep, sometimes it needs more time. Frankly, I doubt that YT makes additional research and de-rank it. Maybe you should continue to deliver additional likes/comments/etc to rank it better. Slowly for several days.

    Yea, i'm in the music niche also and it's hard competing with guys that have like 20k subscribers or others that have 1k subscribers but get like 10k views.
    It's really hard to understand how they do it but it's defiantly not normal by any means.

    I was wondering if vidIQ for YouTube could help but i'm hesitant to buy there boost Bundle due to still trying to figure YouTube Out.

    Bro, go to google or YouTube and search for hack VidIQ. You’ll find how to make enterprise with just changing one number in the .txt file.

    Isn't that illegal or will something happen to my account if YouTube finds out?
    There has to be a risk correct?
    Well i'll google it see what it is.

    Thanks.

    It isn't YouTube's tool, it's a third-party SW.

    Do not worry.

    Oh ok then, i found a work around to get it.
    But i noticed that there's not much of a difference from basic from what i can tell, just little extra suggestions that they give.
    I'll see if uploading does anything. Thank you.

    It's the views most probably . Quality views ranks your videos but botted views rank you for a moment and just halt your rankings for a day or two . YouTube has started looking more than retention so it's just shooting blind hoping to hit the target.

    Don't expect someone to tell exactly what they are doing for rankings and I think you wouldn't tell anyone too. So just keep trying and spend money just to test what works
