    In the last couple of days I had some older (good) videos from smaller channels recommended by YouTube - almost all of those videos had a spike in viewership in the recent time - almost directly opposite of what happens usually when a video gets many views at the start and then declines over time.
    Coincident or is there something going on?

    Yes I have. Actually I've been monitoring a pretty big bump the last 30 day's or so.

    Maybe it's just our TubeBuddy advantage we have on our side...;)

    I don't pay a lot of attention to the numbers usually, but since I was nearing 200,000 views I was watching. I was 1,500 shy of 200k, I expected to hit 200k in a couple weeks... but I hit it within 3 days. Actually went 1,500 over. So that was over 3,000 views in 3 or 4 days. For me that is unheard of.

    I did just redo all my tags, titles, and thumbnails (for all 160 vids). Also, my channel just hit 1,000 subs. I was not sure if either of those factors gave me a boost in search ranking. Maybe YT is just helping out the little guys? :cool:

    Yeah, there are a lot more comments on some of my older videos over the past week. I know the algorithm for recommendations is always being adjusted, so maybe that's in older videos' favor in some way? It's all still so mysterious to me, TBH. :)

    That's been happening to my old videos as well, though for the most part, I know some of them got attention because something (like an OVA or a movie announced or a potential second season) was brought back into the spotlight.

    I haven't noticed a change, but I hope it is something good :D

    YES. Many of my videos from last year suddenly starting seeing views climb this week while I was on vacation. One video from last month has almost doubled it's views this week. I'd say about a dozen or more of my older videos got an unusual boost, and I have kept view records going back to May 2016 for each video.

    I think that could either be an experiment or youtube reevaluating some of the old stuff in it's fast library.

    Whenever you think you understood something there are some groundbreaking changes.
