    I see all of these threads saying that their YouTube accounts were banned...

    My question is what is the best way to avoid this?

    Why do some people get banned when they seem to do nothing wrong?

    The people who don't get banned are the careful ones; They register each account with a proxy and unique phone number. On the other hand are the reckless ones, taking the risk of 5 accounts per IP.

    The key is to act like a normal user and be VERY careful. This is what I do;

    - Register each account with a unique private proxie (Phone activation is not necessary) (Never buy accounts. Create them yourself.)

    - Upload a unique avatar for every account

    - Watch a few videos, maybe subscribe & like etc before and after you upload a video. Use random settings for comments, likes and subscriptions. (If they should be shared in your account or not)

    - Write a short channel description, and maybe write something in the "Share your thoughts" update thingy

    - Add a channel cover

    - Maybe logout and let the account rest for a day before uploading (not always)

    - Do NOT boost your video(s) right away. Let them rest for a day or two.

    - Login to the account once in a while and delete bad comments, check PM:s and act like a normal user.

    - - - -

    That should be pretty much it. I'm sure you could be even more careful, but most of my accounts stay alive nowadays. :)

    Really appreciate the replies...I haven't had a problem as of yet "Knock on wood" but sometimes I worry...My account is 2 months old with 3 videos promoting clickbank products in the descrption...I uploaded each of these videos a couple of weeks apart and they are all different videos (different lengths)...I do nothing spammy and everything is 100% unique original content...I do buy high retention views here and there and back links to help my rankings...I have invested a good amount of money into these videos and am finally seeing sales roll in, I am just nervous my account might get banned for no apparent reason like I see others have ad this problem on this forum...Am I doing anything wrong here or should I be in the clear?

    If you're just having one main channel that you're using, the chances of it getting banned because of you buying views is pretty small. It's more important for people like me who are using many accounts and uploading "spammy" videos to be careful. :)

    Just don't use it in any spammy ways and you'll be fine. :)

    do not abuse it. It's the best solution. Try with more and do a mix between them ;)

    You can be safe with multiple accounts per IP as long as you are posting quality videos frequently.

    1. Create 1 account with a single IP or proxy.

    2. Add channer art, profile picture.

    3. Only upload 2 video on a single account and then log out. Never log in again.

    4. Let your videos rest for 6-7 days before boosting videos.

    5. Use different name, country and password.

    Just as a hint, use your main targeted keyword in your channel name. It helps ranking. Cheers, and good luck in IM. :)

    There are some websites out there selling aged youtube accounts. Your best bet is finding one of those sites.

    I think people above have answered well. Just follow those instruction and you'll be safe. Don't get greedy in the start and try to earn all in a single day. Even if you're using loopholes or other trick do as if they seem like legit work. That's how i do it. Cheers
