    What are the most important ranking factors YT videos in 2014 = Why some videos rank better than others ?

    For example if I manage to increase my views/likes using sites like AMF will my videos rank better then?

    My videos receive very little organic traffic. I always do keyword research, but obviously, filling out description/tags isnĀ“t enough now a days. It is a gaming niche- cinematic trailers etc, so no products or services.

    Sorry for these simple questions, but I am YT newbie still.

    Im not a master but I think you are getting fake/bot/artificial traffic. If you view/like your video from 1 pc but using different gmail YT will ban that ASAP. Dont see your video directly with your video link. Just put your video in your FB/twitter or social page & view from there.

    YouTube is simply striving for user experience ever since it went over G's domain.

    They delete shit videos that bring nothing to the users or try to sell something in an oblivious way and they keep the HQ ones.

    There is nothing fucked up about it, instead of complaining put that energy towards creating HQ videos. They will get a lot more attention.

    Of course you can still spam, but you need to find your own paths, what worked yesterday does not work today, but thats just how the world goes.

    You need to make decent title/description, fill in not more than 5 tags and get high retension views, likes, subcribes, commens.

    You could also use traditional unlisted method :D.

    Ranking on YouTube Search is affected by a combination of several factors including:
    1. Video Popularity (number of views per hour)
    2. Audience retention (time watched, average view duration)
    3. Channel Authority (channel age, total channel views, subscriber count, average channel retention, no. of videos, partnership status, good standing)
    4. Search Relevance (title, tags optimization)
    5. User Engagement (likes, comments, social shares, favorites added, subscriptions driven)

    NB: Videos uploaded from channels with good channel authority or through the unlisted method may be instantly ranked on page 1 for about 24 hours.
