I am not happy to report that we already have banned more than 70 users. The reasons are various, but most often it comes down to posting spammy threads, posting lists (no idea what that is good for), posting completely off-topic replies containing unrelated links to their sites, duplicate threads and the worst think is automated spam, but I think we are pretty good at fighting this thing and eventually automating it a lot.
We don't have hard posting policies here. You can ask nearly anything, reply to any thread in a relevant way and eventually post a link if you have some history of relevant posts.
Please, keep in mind I want to keep this place clean and serving it's purpose and I try hard. Thank you for being member of SEO forum and you are welcome to use it to gain & share knowledge.
Now, list of banned users:

Obvious thing that pops out the very second I land on your channel is, that you have 137k subs, yet no videos and ONLY 5k views...
Did you buy the channel, removed the videos and now trying to position it in a different niche?
Too many obvious red flags here. Even the topic itself...
Can you tell us more about your channel? When it was started, how many subscribers at the moment, how many videos, views...
I mean, no one really knows the algorithm obviously, just like with Google Search. But we have to be realistic about it; successful channels get better positions and more impressions in YT Search. There is nothing to disagree about this, right?
So it's all about where your channel currently is, and all I can see is happening here is, that within ~20 minutes, there are so many livestreams started on YouTube, that you just can't find yours anywhere near top, because there are multiple that are more recent (started more recently), from more popular channels, from channels that aired better performing videos in the past... you name it.
YouTube is hard one. You have to keep working on your content & audience in order to get more popular and therefore rank higher. I don't see any proven shortcuts as of now.
Hello, I have a lot of problems with 24/7 streaming. When I turn on a Youtube Livestream which is already botted with 4-6k+ premiere waiting views/live viewers it gets unindexed after 20 minutes of start. By typing "unindexed" I mean that I can't find my livestream anymore. Right after I start my livestream, it is in top5 when I search for it in youtube search with live filter. After like 20 minutes I can't find it unfiltered or filtered anymore. I always search for all page results for my main keyword of livestream but I can't find it anymore.
How can I fix that problem and get my livestream high in rank using no filters? Please help.
Have you noticed already?
There are new tools in the GSC! In the sidebar under Index there is new item called Removals. Once you access it, you can see three tabs:
- Temporary removals
- Outdated content
- Safesearch Filtering
Right now, I can only see New request button under Temporary removals tab, but that's maybe due to feature's early state. Anyway, tool for urgent content removal from Google Search seems to be very useful in some cases.
To request removal of outdated content, you can use this page https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/removals but the property has to be already removed. Also, you can't use it for removal of personal information legally problematic content. For such case, Google has yet another tool.
SafeSearch filtering will be probably only useful for viewing purposes, so you can see which pages of your website have been filtered due to explicit content via this form https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/safesearch
If you know more details about the tools, please, share in comments.
Is this some kind of a Google tradition now? Same thing last year https://seoforum.com/thread/possible-algorithm-update-january-2019
Seems like "several times per year" is the answer to your question, because no one really knows.
Everything important is typically being announced here: https://twitter.com/searchliaison
Please, clarify your question.

This is what I've found on Reddit:
> I have found putting keywords in your title tags does help you rank for queries, but you need to avoid having Google rewrite your pages' titles. Thing is, neither Google nor Bing like it when you put keywords ahead of your page title, or in the case of your home page, your site title. So, to avoid having your titles rewritten, put your page title, or in the case of your home page, your site title, first, then for pages other than your home page, put your site title (I said for pages other than your home page because you don't want to put your site title twice), and then put in your slogan, keywords you want to rank for, or whatever you had at the front of your title other than your page or site title. If you keep this in mind when crafting your titles, this should allow you to avoid having Google or Bing discard your title and come up with their own.
Do you think it works like that?

Something is going on.
High quality backlinks are from high quality content published on authoritative websites. If you do some remarkable work, publish superb article, even high quality source may link to your website. Which is what you want. You do the work once and get multiple high quality links. Much better than spending time spamming forums and blog to get shitty links. These are good to have in the backlink mix but having just these is not enough.
Check backlinks of your competition and get at least slightly more or higher quality links than them.
Just the basic stuff. I will try to put something together.
No, that's not happening. I am not saying this because google says so. There are multiple studies that clearly state that even the biggest adwords spenders do not get any benefits in regular serp.
Can we have a thing like that? Could have many visits in the future, people are looking for basics all the time.
We are running e-commerce store. Signed up for Google Business account, so people can find us locally, check if we are open, call us or visit our website. It works fine, getting some views, customers checking our photos and so on. We ask our customers to leave a review. Not to leave a positive review, just a review, whatever their experience was. And we get 5 star reviews all the time.
However, this month, we received 3 negative reviews already. It's pretty obvious those are not from our customers as they use newly created accounts, leave no comment or feedback, just 0 stars review. We are 99% sure it's our competition, know exactly who that is, but there is nothing we can do about it. Google seems ignoring complaints and our review score is going down due to defamatory reviews.
The question. Are negative reviews in Google Business affecting our rankings? I can't say from our stats yet, they looks normal, but it's short time period and the overall score is not so bad yet. It's like 4.8 now.
But what if they went further and reviews were down to 3 or 2.5? Is it going to affect our rankings?
Is it possible to find out how does Instagram work? What they use to measure how good a picture or video is and who to show? I am starting Instagram account but it seems like a serious challenge to get some followers base. Is there a way to get big on Instagram while spending one hour a day posting there? Or is it completely about the content, so duplicate content won't help.
I can't get pass few hundred visitors. Seems to me it's gonna take forever to build account with thousands of followers. Any shortcuts? Without bans?
