Sorry its just this thing had me buggin for so effin long and as some of you might know i asked for advice, there was lots of different advice given by some cool people here and some idiots (sorry have to call it as it is) and i TRIED them all, no kidding tried them all because i wanted to know. Ordered WSOs even (i haven't reviewed them for the fear of losing my account, me being new member and all and them being old (got in a trouble with one even but thanks to the good mod here, things worked out in my favor)).
Cost me worth a f*cking kidney okay not that much trying them but you get the idea. I now know how to rank it both on youtube and google, youtube is far easier. Pshew way easier and quick than Google.
I am still not sure how long my videos are going to stick so i am not going to say something concrete yet until i am fully sure.
But a few things i learned after wasting hundreds of my bucks
- Views do NOT mean anything on google, they matter in youtube but not google. One of my video that i did nothing on except order views is sitting at #3 on youtube when it was at #8 when i first uploaded. They do bring you up in video search on google but never to the main page. So do not order them for ranking on google, one of my video with 45(44 minus the one view i just gave it) views is sitting on Google front page when others with thousands are nowhere.
- Engagement doesn't mean anything either on youtube or google. A lot of people say engagement but in my experiment it didn't do anything to matter. I did order high retention views but that doesn't come under engagement, by engagement i mean comments/likes/dislikes. I only did likes/dislikes, not sure how much of a factor comments are but i have my own genuine channel which gets a lot of comments on videos but it hasn't made to front page of G so i am going to assume comments don't matter either.
- Channel Authority is KING, beyotch. Your video is going to have an upper hand over anyone else despite their views/engagement or any other thing, both on Google and Youtube.
One of my video got deleted that i ran a different kind of experiment on so i never got to see the results, wish i could have before YT deleted it. It was about on-page seo over-optimization.
These things i am certain of and i know this isn't news to some of you but nobody told me this or told contradicting info so i hope this helps somebody. These didn't rank my video though on google, i am going to wait if the video sticks for longer before jumping to conclusions and posting what did it.
Oh and don't bother with the unlisted video thing, it never sticks. Youtube is too smart for that, unless you can profit in just a couple days with your video being first on youtube (it doesn't on google) then by all means go for it but it will go down to oblivion hard and never sticks.
It took 20 days, maybe earlier than that but i checked on the 20th day.
Disclaimer: Please don't kill me if you think what i said contradicts your experiences, i am not claiming to be an expert, far from it. I just did an experiment on a lot of videos using different advice given, combination of the advice and variations of advice and got these results. If you had different results please share.
