    Hi,

    I'm after some information on ranking/YouTube.

    I was wondering, If I upload a video to YouTube and keep it private for a week (meaning no likes and views) will this have a detrimental affect on its ranking when I actually put it live?

    Also will having it unlisted for 24 hours before it goes live so a handful of people can see it, have a similar detrimental effect?

    Thanks in advance.

    Nope if you put your video live and then you make private then only it will affect the ranking. But you are making private at the time of uploading and nobody have seen your video, then only you put it live,so no problem...

    No problem for sure. It will not affect ranking.

    I do not think any affect would be there,but uploading and make it public will give you positive results instead of making it private for some days.
