    I have some GSA SER Tutorials on YT and 4 of them have been flagged for spam, scam, offensive material, some bullshit. I know my videos are legit b/c the comments are nothing but praise. Is there anyway to challenge YouTube on the penalties?

    flag every video on youtube. Then when you done that, upload your videos and you be the only 1 on youtube for 5 mins.

    There is really nothing that you can do honestly. Once a website like Youtube makes a decision there is really nothing you can do to change their mind.

    Dude, that sucks...had a client with this issue...the solution: wistia or some other paid provider. It also allows you to capture emails, content lock, and some other cool stuff. I'm not sure what other vid sites are out there, perhaps others have additional sites? As far as I know, that's the best solution...the other option is just to hire VA's, and go to war...flag their vids, keep churning out new ones, but that's a waste of time.

    Nothing you can really do. I hate community moderation systems because all it is really is a way for
    people to abuse others and get away with it. Since YT is making so much money they should mod their own website.

    Thanks for the replies guys (sorry for delayed response here). Yeah it sucks b/c those videos drive a lot of traffic to my site and sub's to my channel. The vids still appear in the YT search results, people just have to be logged in to view them. And I'm afraid more flags/reports are going to lead to my vids being taken down. Guess I'll just download and be ready to upload again. And look at the other guys with videos using the same keywords and see if they're getting reported too. If there's one person who's not getting flagged while everyone else is, sure as fuck going to war against them.

    Hey Laubster,

    I was under the impression that when you verify your YT account, if somebody makes a claim/flags your video, you're able to file a dispute/counter-claim and, providing you're successful, not get action taken against your video.

    P.S. Found your site through here a couple days ago and read your youtube video ranking article/video. Great post with some good tips. Keep it up, man.

    Cheers, Jon.

    @ Is there anyway to challenge YouTube on the penalties?

    If I'm not mistaken there's usually some kind of appeals link in the email that's sent to inform you that your video has been taken down...Not saying that it will do any good but guess you can try.

    Great idea I would reverse engineer this problem and try to find the source of the guy who is flagging your videos.
    And I would not just flag his videos but track down his websites and information and hit back hard and wipe his ass out.

    Besides doing IM I'm a decent sized YouTuber believe it or not, but even I can't give you too much advice on this one buddy. it's a real shane Google doesn't offer a way to combat this. Keep us posted and good luck!

    This will def. be happening, but when I first tried to figure it out there was only one other video flagged the same way, so I'll have to give it some more time.

    Is the OP serious? I hope you know that youtube is owned by Google, right? I hope you know GSA is a spam tool, right?
    Youtube doesn't care about spam tools that they will hunt every video down. They care more about hate speech and things that inspire violence. However, if some employee from google manages to see it in their inbox or portfolio or etc while working, of course it is going to be taken down. It is their job. It is something they don't want on their site.

    The guy reporting you doesn't have to be your competitor or someone trying to make the same money as you. It could also be GSA competitors or some guy that hates GSA because they think GSA brought down their website. This is the only way they can get back at them.
