Sooo, you're saying I should have a Ferrari cause otherwise I'll have a Trabant and I'll be slower than everyone else cause they all have Ferraris but getting a Ferrari doesn't make me faster than others cause they all have it?It's very simple. SEO is not a guarantee that your video will be found. Most creators are under the impression that if you just use the right keywords and SEO that your videos will magically be seen by everyone and become an overnight success. But the reality is if it were that simple then everyone would be successful or no one would be because there are not enough hours in a day and not enough eyeballs on YouTube at the same time to be able to see every video uploaded daily thus someone will fail to get views regardless if it was that simple.
In other words, if everyone has a Ferrari, almost no one would be able to drive 200 MPH because everyone's gonna wanna do it at the same time and I'm sure you know what a traffic jam is.
