    So I am in the process of posting videos just to rank for local searches all over my state. Each video is unique and has a detailed keyword rich description but they are low production quality. Do you think there is any chance I will be banned?

    Thanks

    I have no stats to back me up, but I'm going to say no.

    Half the videos on YouTube are crappy.

    I didnt think so but you never know.. The videos I am making are just
    1) Use Scrapebox to find images based on targeted municipality
    2)Turn into video
    3)upload add description done.

    I guess there is a chance one of the videos could get banned for a copyright claim on one of the pictures?

    I don't think you would have to worry about the copyright on the pictures at all.
    However, if you are clearly spamming for the purpose of SEO its possible that they will delete your account.

    If you're simply posting a ton of crappy videos like I do for fun, then you're alright ;p

    Only way you'll get banned is if your video gets reported to many times.

    Assuming you are not referring to scat videos I would say you are safe. It's your conversion strategy that maybe an issue.

    You will only be banned if the video breaks any of youtubes rules. I don't think crappy quality breaks a rule.

    A lot of guys upload crappy videos. If you get banned just upload another and you will be fine.

    Why do you want to rank crappy videos? Do you think anyone will click on them?

    If you really want to pull in some huge traffic then get a quality video done but if you are making one for just SEO purpose and even crappy videos are fine.

    Also, you won't get ban.

    Can you even rank "crappy videos" anymore? YouTube's algorithm is based off of a factor from audience retention, meaning if no one watches the full video then you get lower rank in search results. From my experience, creating "high quality" videos with SEO gets me to rank 2-5 first page on YouTube.

    If you are interested in increasing the quality of your videos, you can always go to Fiverr and get someone to do it for you. Just a couple of bucks to get a better video would help.

    The first string of videos I put up on youtube are crappy quality. The content is really good. If you keep your content quality high, and you can hook your viewer right away, it won't matter about the quality. What you really want is to start a conversation among viewers in your comments section.

    Unless it contains copyrighted content or people report the vid, you shouldn't have any problems.

    I don't care about quality. I play the volume game.

    At the end of the day, I've done both and make the same amount of money either way.

    Quality videos convert well and rank better but you cannot scale them easily. Low-quality videos are the opposite.


    To the OP, you might lose a video or an account. So what, make one hundred accounts. That's what I like about YouTube and other Web 2.0 sites. Unlike SEO where a site getting slapped will screw you, with these other sites losing one account is no big deal and they can never connect you to all the others.

    I guess I will make a few accounts just to be on the safe side. to everyone saying make better content and I will get more conversions I have a really weird niche where people just need my phone number and I will convert a sale. If I just get my phone number in the top 10 I am golden. For everyone about to say "places" i feel ya.. If you can get one of my phone numbers in places for under $100 PM me.

    Guy in that chugging video had to have smoked meth or something... but no you could upload a video of a wall and it would stay.
