Nope, start with the farthest bleeder first. Sometimes there is a difference with bleeding systems though, are you using vacuum, pressure or reverse bleeding?

Then either your not bleeding it right, which you probably are. Or there is a failed component. No leaks anywhere? The master cylinder can blow the seal in between the camber and give no pedal feel. Usually early signs of this is a gradual sinking pedal when even force is applied to the pedal. Results in the vehicle to start rolling until you pump the brakes. Also check the brakes hoses and make sure one isn't balloning
