    Hi,

    im quite shock right now. After the youtube updates keywords dont rank anymore. Before that traffic was okay, but for now its absolute zero for me, cause keyword dont rank even in top 20 anymore.

    Im using MVB for upload videos, before update all my videos rank very well, at least in top 10 (50% videos rank in top 3). Videos ranked well just in minutes. Doesnt matter if upload 5 videos per account or 10+ videos per account, keyword always ranks well very very fast. Im using proxies as well.

    But for now, its almost 3 hours ago when i upload my videos again, and none of them ranks better than top 20. :(, 0 views, 0 traffic, 0 money.

    I think that after update youtube watch more carefully what you are uploading and if you do it massively then videos just dont rank anymore...

    Need help! If anyone notice the same problem?

    Thank you!

    Little update:

    5-10% keywords ranks now. Maybe this is just youtube problem for now, and everything is back in normal in few days, ill hope :).

    Seems like keyword ranking take much more time than usual. For me it takes 4 hours, after that videos are start ranking. Now about 75% videos are ranking (over 1500 videos uploaded)

    Just run another test, uploaded videos 45 minutes ago, no rankings yet, let see how it goes.

    Yep, right now im losing a very much traffic too, but hope its good in few days.

    About my test number two, 0 keywords rankings in top 20 right now (about 200 videos), lets see how its going in next few hours.

    First test: videos are ranking quite well i think, i think 75% are top 20 now. A lot of them are ranking in top top 3.

    Day 1 = ranked on 1st page
    Day 2 = ranked on 3-10 page
    Day 3 = not in first 20 = zero traffic lol

    I tried to unlisted and listed back the videos couple times but didn't work.

    Do you guys think that boosting the video with likes,comment and more views will help the video's rank position? Or is it just a matter of time?

    I think youtubes new redesign means that there is a heavier emphasis on comments and likes.

    I shall be getting a like bot anyway. Just to test this out.

    Noooo lol. I still have videos that rank top 5 for the past month.

    I think YT is starting to work the same way Google is. It takes the new content into consideration and puts it on top for awhile, then it just puts the videos that should rank up there back. Bouncing around a lot.

    As far as I'm concerned I can confirm that something has just gotten a little harder and my videos, while still getting views, plummeted considerably. Let's see what happens, a few days before Xmas is not a good time to fuck that up...

    No problem with ranking videos, the only thing that I noticed in the past days was that they indexed pretty hard ( after 7 hours) but this kind of things happend before... I remember a month ago it was a complete chaos in here about videos not ranking for 2 days but after yt finished updating the servers all becomed normal again... so this is only a temporary issue ;)
    Cheers,
    Stoica

    Also the keyword rankning depends on the popularity of the niche, I noticed that on popular niches your videos rank much quicker then in niches with low search volume.
