    Hey Community,

    I am devastated. I have just been notified by Google that my YT account has been removed. I used this account in conjunction with sharecash to make mid $XXXX every month, for the last 5 months.

    I'm currently at univeristy, and this money helps fund my time here. It is my only source of income from online.

    I don't want to hear 'sharecash is shit use cpa to make more' or 'shouldnt put your eggs in one basket' - I know this.

    I am just really really annoyed, as all my vids ranked No1 or 2 in a highly competitive niche, and I had just under 1 milllion views with thousands of subscribers.

    I am not sure how I am going to get up from this.

    Peace

    There will be many replies with the tone 'i told you so!' and rightly so..

    However its ok mate.. you got to move on.. if you can earn X,XXX dollars a month from 0, you can do it all over again. it might take time, but sure you can do it and you can scale it up as well.. but this time, just be more careful..

    Hopefully you've set aside a nest egg for a situation like this - to give you time to do what is necessary....

    and what is necessary? To rebuild of course. You've done it once already, so you know the way there... do it again, but safer this time (multiple accouts would be a good start to reduce your risk)...

    Appreciate the replies.

    I did have more than one account, but this one account resulted in 90% of my earnings. I am so incredibly daunted and gutted by the fact that how hard it is going to be to rank again in certain areas and niches... Building up a channel that has size and strength isn't an easy or enjoyable task.

    I always worried that this may occur, but never really thought it would...

    My channel may have had a couple of ripped videos, not from other legit YT users but from another site. However, I clearly stated these were not mine in the description...

    Yes I know, if I had original content this wouldn't have happened.

    But I am gutted, as I was leading the rabble and rat-race below me in the rankings, I became an easy target for multiple complaints from people.

    Welcome to the life experience. Take what you accomplished and be proud of it. Use this experience as a learning tool and build bigger and better.

    Where people fail in life is not by losing everything but by giving up. Losing is not failing but simply a tool to teach you how to be better.

    I'm starting to wish I had recently hadn't taken out a nice hefty contract on a new Iphone 4s.... Haha!

    Yeah I'm not the type of person to just call it a day at the first sign of failure, just this has hurt me at a an already challenging time in my life (academically speaking), where I dont have that much free time available. I think cause I have never had any hitches since starting, with things going extremely well for me, making good money everyday on autopilot- this has just has shocked me a bit how abruptly failure can occur.

    I guess tomorrow is another day, and back to the drawing board...

    Oh IM, you cruel cruel mistress.

    There is a good old joke:

    Cowboy rides across the steppe, suddenly he notices an Indian tribe at the distance.
    - Well, I'm doomed, it's the end - thinks the cowboy.
    - No, its not the end - says his inner voice - you can still gallop away from them!

    As he spurred his horse, the Indians rushed after him, and after a while the horse fell.
    - All right, this is the end - thought the cowboy.
    - No, not the end - replied his inner voice - you can still run away from them!

    And the cowboy ran. Soon, Indians surrounded him, and put a net over him.
    - This is it, this is the end - thought the cowboy.
    - No, its not the end - replied his inner voice - you can still escape from the net, tear it apart!

    And he tore the net to pieces. Then one of the Indians dismounted his horse, walked up to cowboy, and whacked him on the head with a club. The cowboy lost consciousness. He woke up firmly tied to a pole, and saw the chief of the tribe, with a huge knife in his hand approaching him.
    - All right, this is the end - thought the cowboy.
    - No, its not the end - replied his inner voice - spit in the face of the chief.

    And the cowboy and spat in the face of the Indian leader.
    - Now its the end! - said the inner voice.


    Well, just wanted to say: Its not end, mate. :)

    Saaaame thing happened to me before. Was more like $100 buck's a week, but weekly payment and money came always right on friday to go out partying :) 2-3 year's ago that was a nice side-income, when I hadn't anything left from AdSense monthly payment.

    Well, I overdid ratings with a bunch of accounts and guess what, the account with the video's with hundreds of thousands of view's was made on the same day with the same IP, like the one's I used for spamming ratings & comments.

    Lesson learned, started again a few month's ago, invested money for the view's, scaled it up, made it already xx-time's back ;)
    That's the difference, when you already know s.th. work's - you make it second time even better.
