What To Do When Your IFTTT-Optimized Videos Are Not Ranking Well?

In episode 93 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked about the best things to do when videos optimized via IFTTT networks are not ranking very well.

The exact question was:

Hey Brad!

I made approx. 50 videos and launched them on my branded network with supporting IFTTT networks. I have been monitoring them for about a month now. Some were doing really well…some were doing so-so..and others were just not ranking anywhere near the 1st or 2nd page of Google. A few days ago I noticed that every single video has now fallen out of the top 100. I was gearing up to start monetizing them….I put months of work into them. I am really bummed. I dont know what to do. What if they never come back? What do I do in the mean time?…as time is of the essence as I havent made a single dime yet. Thanks Brad.

P.S. I have not yet started backlinking or boosting anything. These are straight vanilla. I took the videos, streamed them to my branded network, and then it took me weeks to silo every single video. They were fluctuating …but most videos were in the top 100….now 95% of the videos are nowhere to be found. Its like it happened overnight…which is leading me to believe that this issue is on MY end. ProRank tracker isn't even tracking them properly. As I have been looking at the ones that are ranking…and they arent even there. I cant find them doing a Google search(really weird).

How do I start working on contacting prospects when I dont even have any videos that I am able to locate using Prorank Tracker?

Has this ever happened to you before?

Please detail the best coarse of action at this point in time

Thanks so much
