In part 11, we took a look at the stats after a full year of not working on it. The YouTube ranking dropped only from #3 to #19 for our main keyword. Also, there was still no sign of the video in Google. We also did a couple new checks in the last part. We saw the video was ranking #33 in the “Videos” tab on Google for the main keyword and also was ranking #196 when choosing to show the “omitted results”. Up until this point, we concluded that the 301 redirect method and the inflation of views, likes, & shares had a positive impact on the YouTube ranking, but not the Google ranking. Since we have solved the YouTube ranking, all effort going forward will be spent on boosting the Google ranking. At the end of part 11, I decided to order a Fiverr gig to boost the social signals of the YouTube video to see the effect on the Google rank. In this part, we’re going to take a look at the results.
Well, it’s been a year since writing part 10. I had some things go on and got sidetracked unfortunately in a different direction. However, instead of wrapping up, I’m going to try to regroup and continue on. In the last part, we did a simple stats check. In total, we did 2 different Fiverr submissions to boost views, likes, and shares. The 1st submission resulted in a #10 spot in YouTube and the 2nd submission results in a #3 spot. However, both had no influence on the Google ranking of the video. In the last part, we were planning on sending social signals to the video to see if it had any impact on the Google ranking (and YouTube as well). Unfortunately, that is where I got cut off, but I am going to pick up exactly where I left off. First, lets see how the YouTube ranking has been doing the past year..
In part 9, we went over the 2nd Fiverr gig submission and checked it’s impact on the YouTube and Google rankings. We saw good success with the video jumping all the way to the 10th spot in YouTube after the 1st Fiverr submission. The video later declined to the 37th spot. The 2nd Fiverr gig submission gave the video an extra 8,000+ views and 50 likes. After a couple days, the video jumped back up to the 14th position and lingered around there for 4 days. In part 10 of this case study, we’re going to do another stats check on the video to see if it jumped higher within the YouTube rankings and cracked the top 500 of Google for our lone keyword.
In part 8, we checked on the results of the first Fiverr gig submission. The Fiverr gig boosted the views up 5,500+ and the boosted the likes to 74. Within 3 days, the video jumped to the #10 spot in YouTube and then later dropped to #37 on 6/7. The YouTube video still did not appear in the top 500 of Google. In this part, we are going to go over the 2nd Fiverr gig submission and check the stats once again.
In part 7, we saw the video jumped up to the #19 spot in YouTube on May 12th and has been lingering around the 40th to 50th position since creating backlinks using GSA SER. After the backlinking, we submitted the high domain authority backlinks to Express Indexer to see if this had any positive effect on the rankings. It was concluded that the submission did not have any positive effect. After the link indexer submission, we submitted the YouTube video for a Fiverr gig. The Fiverr gig promised 5000 HR views, 100 likes, and 15 shares. In part 8, we are going to check out the results of the gig submission and see if the views, likes, and shares boosted the ranking of the video in YouTube and Google.
In part 6, we saw that the YouTube ranking of the video jumped way up to around the 20th position and the video remained out of the top 500 within Google for the main keyword. I wanted to test to see if a backlinks submission of the GSA SER verified links to Express Indexer would have any impact on the YouTube and Google rankings. We had 489,059 verified links from GSA SER backlinking and we filtered down that list to 107,651 verified links, which had a Domain Authority of at least 35. These links were submitted around 2 weeks ago. In this part, we are going to see the effect of the Express Indexer submission on both the YouTube and Google rankings. We are going to start by ramping things up a bit and start working on the views, likes, and shares of the YouTube video to see how these metrics effect the rankings.
