    Hello, i just wanted to warn you all to not spam with random tags in description.

    My video got removed because i had random tags in the description.

    I worked like 6h to rank it high on youtube and make it kind of viral then gg.

    I just hope you dont make the same mistake as me.

    Did it ever occur to you that maybe it was your 6 hours of work trying to rank the video that got it removed and not the tags in the description....

    It clearly says you have inappropriate content, the video would have been removed eventually anyway if that is the case.

    No, they told me they removed it because it was misleading, the only thing misleading was the tags.
    And when i said i worked 6 hours to rank it, everything of that was white hat seo no black hat.

    Thanks for the advice.

    What do you mean random?
    Completely unrelated tags or too many, yet related, tags?

    Hi,

    I am interested as well on what made the tags stand out and why they where the reason for removing the video.

    Unreleated tags, but if the tags are releated then it is ok.

    Since they where unreleated some people came to the video when searching for other things, for example if it was about a horse i had tags about a dogs and a cars.

    So I am wondering how YT detected you?! Do they read the description as well?! Is there any way to inform YT For such things?!
    The only thing I can think about is that people came to your video and flagged it when they noticed that you misled them!

    I think it could be many things, but spamming in all ways is frowned upon by these platforms.

    They told me it was because misleading, and the only misleading thing i had was tags.

    I wish i didnt do it, it only brought like 5 views maybe and made me lose $$$$$$

    How many unrealted tags did you have in the video? Was the video original and made by yourself or it was re-uploaded?

    Around 100 random ones i think, i googled for them and took them.

    It was a original video made by me (it was a video recording i filmed).

    The days of descriptions and tags affecting your adsense are long gone. If you start spamming and misleading people, google will definitely remove your videos. Rule of thumb, DONT SPAM.
