Getting frustrated with youtube...

So I made 2 decent videos. I'm using tubebuddy to check all my stats/rankings and what not. Some days I'll rank in the top 3 position on the first page of youtube, then a few hours later I'll lose my rankings... I don't get it! Why do I keep losing my rankings?

    Atleast you are getting on first page some days !!
    check the competition and see whats getting ranked when your video is not
    you need to keep on making videos.
    dont just stick to 2 videos

    you should know that there are thousands of people creating videos and uploading so maybe someone is trying to rank in the same niche as yours.....

    It's called the Google dance, your ranking will jump around a bit until google figures out where they want to place you.

    I haven't heard the term "google dance" for ten years or more. There is still the 'positioning' - but not the 'dance' it was in the past.

    Not sure - but doesn't YouTube use the 'personalized search' that Google started years ago? It would account for some up/down changes you see but that's a guess on my part.

    From YouTube 2017 statistics"

    The total number of people who use YouTube - 1,300,000,000. 300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute! Almost 5 billion videos are watched on Youtube every single day.
    300 hrs uploaded every minute... Maybe that's why it's difficult to maintain rankings for long...?

    Just wait a second – so what you're telling me is that my chance of surviving all this is directly linked to the common sense of others? You’re kidding, right?

      Only, and only a little, tiny fraction of the videos get any views; the rest YouTube sends them to the graveyard--"YouTube Graveyard." YouTube look for quality uploaders, not ordinary, amateur ones. WHY? because they need user engagement and ad revenue. If your content got quality, solve people's problem it will stick to the rank for some time no matter how many videos are being uploaded UNLESS someone uploads a more quality video that replaces your place. So, don't be fearful about the number of videos being uploaded everyday. Remember, almost 80% are buried under 10-feet solid rock.

      Many people with 5000 crap videos receive less than 500 views a day while just one quality video gets a million views within a day/week/month of its upload. How is that possible? think about it.

  • Is "Shimmyin' blissfully on a Google-free Double O Ticket" any kinda tagline yet?

    Gotta figure even the most immaculately armored Medieval swankers got superseded by guys with evidently hotter undergarments.

    I would want the 2020s to be culturally svelte.

    Don't worry. There are large number of videos getting uploaded on youtube every single minute. This makes your ranking to fluctuate. Don't stop. Keep going and make nice videos.

    I suggest you promote through social media to drive traffic to your video. The more audience you are able to reach the better. I recommend using goo.gl/2BA7oY to help with the promotion. I had an excellent experience with them.
