Export settings and Youtube visual quality

The BIg Mystery:

This is something I already know something about and yet still can't solve. You create a beautiful video sequence in FCP that looks great, but when you export it and upload it to Youtube, even following all of the recommended export settings for Youtube, the finished product comes out looking horrible. It's all pixelated and blurry as if it had been filmed on a camera from the Jurassic period.

Here are the specs:

The FCP 7 sequence is in Apple ProRes 422 LT at 30 fps and 1920:1080 with no interlacing and unscaled.

The export settings in Quicktime Conversion are:
- Frame rate = current
- Key frames every = automatic
- Frame reordering = unchecked
- Encoding = Best
- Data rate = 3000
- Size = 1920 by 1080
- Sound = AAC "better" 160

I've also had this same problem in the past even when setting frame rate manually to the same as the project sequence (in this case 30) and setting audio to a higher quality in AAC.
