I've been having some success ranking vids very quickly using YT editor and the usual onpage SEO coupled with high retention views. Vids would get to Google page 1 within minutes but now it's all changed and it seems those techniques are just not working. Worse - some of my vids seem to have been sandboxed - not appearing anywhere in searches for low comp keywords, despite modest views, likes, keywords in description and title, YT backlinks.
I have been exploring using ranked videos as advertising platforms for offline businesses and so would like to get on top of this.
Does anyone know if it's worth joining the High Voltage Video Forum to get advice on this sort of stuff? Any other insights or suggestions? Thank you.
