    I decided to post a few comments from an old youtube account I have, I have so far only posted a few comments genuinely related to random videos with no links or spammy comments just to test things out.

    On checking in another browser none of my comments can be seen! This account has never been used for any spamming or even commenting of any kind before, I only had a couple of videos posted with this account and they were just movie trailers so the account hasn't been used for anything suspicious.

    Are Google and youtube really total fucktards??? (Don't bother answering that)

    Oh well, off to make another account!

    Maybe a obvious answer but you never know, did you changed top comments in newest comments?
    Because on one of my accounts I regularly swear and shit, never been ghosted.

    Don't really get what you mean but I simply posted a comment stating that I liked a particular part of the video, no profanity or mention of alternate sources but the comments are not there on my other account!

    What I mean, in the top left is a button which on default is on "top comments" have you changed it to "newest comments" to see if your comment was there?

    Wasn't saying you posted profanity but I do and I never had any issues.

    Ah, I get what you mean now. Tried both but still can't see my comments.

    I'll try with another account and see if I get the same issue, if so it must be something I am doing.

    Don't get why it would be as I've never done youtube commenting before on any account apart from a few genuine comments on my real account which I never had a problem with.

    Hmm, strange thing. I just posted another comment and tried to make it sound more natural, like I was asking a question and the comment is now showing!

    Must be some filter set up on the first few videos I posted on or maybe I just wasn't sounding "human" enough.

    Thanks for the offer anyway @Billy_Batts I'll pm you a video if I run into any more difficulties.

    Try logging accounts via a proxy or VPN and see if the comments stick or not. If you are posting normal comments and its getting ghosted then it could be due to IP only afaik.

    GUYS Maybe this is paranoid but try this experiment real quick. Do you ever click your link in your history to view the comment? Usually only people do this to get the comment link to upvote, and if you grab the link and search with another IP, don't you think youtube knows your getting the exact link to a comment?

    It seems like this behavior is getting your comments flagged , hey maybe im being paranoid but when I comment on a video I can see my comment from another computer. But when I grab the link, all the comments are ghosted.

    Some keywords are banned in like sub's, subscribe etc also many link too. So you should avoid these keywords to avoid ghosted

    The YT algo, will detect certain words and automatically ghsot them.
    here are some speculations
    Links are not allowed
    saying sub to me or anything close to that is not allowed
    saying come check out my channel is not allowed
    Anything self promoting is not allowed
    those things will instantly go into the spam comment section and wont show unless the user allows it.

    hope this helps.

    Yep, it seems that replies to other comments are being marked as spam much much often...
