The meaning of ‘Rumbling’

Hey everyone, Wojtek here from Rumble. Many people were inquiring, so I felt I should provide a little explanation on what “Rumbling” means on your Pending Videos page.

After uploading and selecting your licensing option, videos get placed into a queue. In this queue an automated technology dubbed ‘Rumble Rank’ makes a decision on the value and virality of the content you uploaded, and if our Rumble Rank ‘likes’ the content, it will be sent to our newsroom for a final decision and audit. If for any reason Rumble Rank and/or editors are not certain (possibly due to not enough data) but they see potential value in your content,it will get placed into a separate queue called ‘Rumbling’. At this point your chances are pretty good that it will get purchased/approved, but still not certain. Most people can expect a reply within two weeks while rumbling, in some cases this can take longer.

Some tips to help get your video noticed, or noticed faster:

  1. Film in landscape mode (hold your phone sideways)
  2. Upload the highest quality video you can.
  3. Cut any lead up / part of the clip that is not needed.
  4. Tell your friends to watch your clip on Rumble

I hope that helps. Feel free to leave comments and questions below, and maybe on my next post I’ll address it 🙂
