    It would seem that some very popular videos of mine have gone dormant since penguin 2.1 (Links from bitch slapped penguin sites). So I removed the links from the description of these videos and whalla! they are being viewed again?!?!? WTF, Is it my imagination or some anomaly. Could these videos be punished because of this?

    Sorry, my youtube videos lost rank. The websites I had in the description of said youtube videos were hit hard by penguin 2.1. I removed the links from the youtube video descriptions and my videos are now ranking again. Sorry I am scatterbrained right now, I hope I made it more clear, thanks!

    yes.. penguin 2.1 is hitting hard on all sites for now.. so it may also be one of the reasons for the dropping of ranks...

    Well it may be.. How many videos you have? Maybe place links in description to different sites, like one link to mashable or something, and other link to your site, and see how it performs.
