    Anybody know what I can do. I went after a few low competition keywords and got my youtube video to rank on page 1 after a few days. SOme reason, the youtube thumbnail hasn't showed up. should I just wait it out?

    If there is no thumbnail, then a blue link will appear with the title of the video just like any other link in google organic result.

    I am trying to do the same thing with my youtube videos, get them ranked organically in google.

    I find that sometimes the thumbnails show and sometimes they don't. I don't know if there is any rhyme or reason as to why some show and some don't.

    I think it depends how google is feeling that day. Not sure, if anyone else knows, let us know.

    thanks!

    Call Google? No, there is nothing what you can do. Just wait.

    well, the thumbnails can show for some videos and not show for others...

    i am not sure how google decides this, but there is no pattern that i can discern from my own videos that i am trying to promote...

    this can possibly work if the video is on your own site, but the video is hosted on youtube, its a little different, at least i think...
