    When I comment spam and the upvote my comment many times on the same youtube videos, after a while my comments doesn't show up to other people, making my efforts in posting new comments and upvoting them to the top comments useless. I read that this thing it's because of "ghosting", but my question is: Is my ip ghosted (I don't use proxies for now) or my accounts? If I use some private proxies to do this work, can I avoid the ghosting, making my comments visible to all the people watching the video I commented, or the problems are my accounts, used repeatedly to do this trick (I do all this manually)? Because if the problem is my ip, can I avoid this by using some private proxies, or if the problem are my accounts, I should create more of them and use them without using the same for too long.
    What is the problem in your opinion, it's a matter of ip or accounts?

    If you use the same IP, of course it's going to get ghosted. You need to use a private proxy or VPN

    And besides all these make sure you never use the same comment twice, change it everytime you post and add different characters at the beginning and at the end of the comment ( i.e. ◦ ► ▄ ♦ ● ◘ ◄ ▲ □ ◊ )

    How many proxies do I need? I mean, I use a proxy for about 30 minutes, I change proxies and reapeat, or one proxy for every account?
    If one of my ip gets ghosted, it can return to normal after some time, or it get ghosted for ever?

    If you've been spamming, probably forever.

    The best thing to do as these guys said is get a private proxy or a VPN

    1 proxy per account. If it gets ghosted switch accounts and return back to it after a few days when it comes back to normal.

    Depending on how "many times" as you've stated in your OP, proxies could very well be in effective from a cost perspective. You can scrape public proxies, but I know they get burned for at least Google queries, perhaps they're not blacklisted at the same time for Youtube.

    If you were going to use proxies, it'd probably be wise to use a browser like Chrome or Firefox and install an add-on that would let you easily select different proxies from the toolbar after you logged out of each account.
