    So i have a video with tons of views, likes comments etc. but it is NOWHERE to be found in the youtube search!

    However, it is ranking 4th on google search for that same keyword, wtf?

    Did youtube sandbag my video?

    It's sandbox not sandbag and I've never heard of YouTube sandboxing a video. It's probably just dancing. If you want a more in depth answer, send me the video URL and keyword here, if you don't care about competition or people knowing your keyword, otherwise just PM me it and I'll take a look.

    Yea I guess I meant sandbag sorry. And if you guys are right it must be a terrible dancer! How do i give it some salsa lessons? lol

    I had a video from the same channel removed weeks before i uploaded this one, could it be that the channel is penalized and therefore any new video i upload on it will be too?

    @Dagreyon check your pm

    You'll get much much more traffic from google position than youtube anyway... plus it is prob dancing. Can take a few days, but will most certainly rebound into decent youtube rank.

    I uploaded it over 2 weeks ago so i dont think its dancing. Plus, the only reason it is ranked high in google is because of my FB fan page which gives it ton of social signals. I have another video (1 week old) with the same keywords an under 1000 views which is on page 2 for my target kw, while main video is nowhere to be found o_O

    Exactly the same thing here. Did everything that would usually have ranked it near the top. Now its sat on page 3 with when the competition isn't even that great.

    Maybe its notice for moderator or they flag it not fit for users due to fake likes views etc ...

    Is it happening to every video you boost? because it's happened to the last 2 out of 3 i've boosted lately. I did nothing different with them, just did my same old ranking system. One of them hit most popular section on youtube then when it and page 10 in rank!?
