    Did anyone of you got Youtube account banned only because of spamming backlinks to videos? If so, what what kind of links did you make?

    I myself never got troubles because of that or even because of buying views, what is your experience with it?

    You can not get banned for buying views.

    Look at it this way: if buying views can make you get banned, i can spam views on anyone i want to get him banned...

    So no trouble..

    Well, I have to oppose to BigMe. I got video banned because of views. I had one older video which I wanted to boost, bought some views, that raised a flag and it was gone. Same goes if you are using blog comments for backlinking, especially not an AA list, scrapebox/GSA, etc. This way you can annoy site owners which in return flag your video. That happened to me as well.

    So, it was flagging that got your account banned, not the actual backlinks. But seriously, losing one account isn't a big deal(unless you are a newbie and/or have a lot of videos on it, which you shouldn't do), so just move on :)

    Actually in the past two days I got two videos banned because of buying views. I've contacted the seller to see what to do about this.
    This is the email I got. Once seller responds then I plan to do some testing with some random videos and see if they will get banned.

    Fake views can get your account banned but i dont think they will ever ban a account for backlinks to a video on his channel

    So theoretically that would mean I'd be able to send fake views to any video and get it removed? Is this like Negative Youtube SEO or something?

    you can spam as much you want. backlinks are no problem and will not get you banned.

    Depends, if you spam views in the videos of BBC/Russia Today, nothing will happen, but if you did that on your own 5 days old account. Then sure.

    I don't want to damage the seller's reputation, but it was around 10000 to 12000 views.

    Yes but in the past this never happened. Therefore currently I am testing on a video that has little views and see if it will get banned.
