    Guys, this is just a warning that you should be careful in posting videos in youtube. Just today, I got a YT Community Guidelines warning strike on of my best earning video. It has been running for 2 months on top of YT search results for my keyword without any problems and I haven't done anything to it since posting the video except today when I tried to do a test of disabling all the overlay ads and enabling only the true view ads.

    The fishy thing is that YT hasn't removed other videos with the same nature and almost same keywords. I'm sure my keywords has nothing to do with it but I'm starting to think that because the video is getting high views and has been earning good, YT+adsense has decided that they are losing money and has to remove it.

    The more view you have got, the more chance you have people flagging your video.

    Not porn. It's a compilation of fight videos.

    More likely, someone reported your video. Youtube is less likely to do something unless someone complains or it's blatant.

    I agree with the others. Once I had a video that doing around 1k then steady a little under 3k then it jumped right up to 10k and looked like it was going to go viral and suddenly got banned due to the massive awareness. the topic was also 'debatable'

    It might be true that YT doesn't like violent videos but how can you explain the other videos that are also violent? I'm starting to think of the possibility that my competitors are the ones who flagged my video... Anyway, I learned a lot from this recent experience and I hope other BHW members monetizing YT videos through their partner program or Adsense integration learn from this too.

    Will keep you guys updated of any developments.
