    as the title says: i can't find my youtube video in the search results anymore. it hasn't been deleted or flagged and i haven't boosted it using any services as of yet. it has 11 likes, no dislikes, and 1,400 views. it has been up for a little over a week and then today i noticed my clicks slowly coming to a crawl.

    anyone else having similar problems? anyone know the cause? would appreciate any info you guys have, thanks :)

    I had the same issue with one video but I can't figure out what was wrong with this.
    Any idea ?

    It's been happening to me a lot lately. In one of my niches the video gets ghosted even when using a completely unique video not just a copied video thats been altered. Still up but not getting any traffic and I seen it in the search after the first couple days of uploading but now its nowhere to be seen. Seems like youtube has upgraded their algo in certain areas with certain niches?

    They're might be caught by duplicate content. This is sickening.

    If it's not in the search results, then it might have gone to some other page.
