I started to respond in a different thread and realized this should be a thread of its own. For sexy videos to stick, the system is as follows: 1. There is no way to guarantee your videos won't be flagged, as there are people who pride themselves on being the moral police of the world and will spend their lives flagging anything they find offensive. You also have competition, like the douchebags who come into this forum and try to manipulate others into flagging videos for them for one reason or another. Unfortunately, YouTube relies heavily on the community, comprised in part of the above characters, to make its banning decisions. For this reason, it's really advisable to upload no more than 3 videos to any one account. An account can have 2 videos flagged without the 3rd one being affected. But once the third video is flagged, the account will be banned altogether. 2. There is always inefficiency in any sufficiently chaotic system, and YT is no exception. Therefore, if you upload enough videos, you will have those that stick for months or years, simply because the competition and the morality nazis will not find and flag everything. So, the key is to do more uploading. Simple as that. 3. Certain things offend more than others. Obviously, nudity is a no no. But more risque topics, such as homosexuality or certain fetishes really piss off the moralists and tend to get flagged quickly. The flip side to that coin is that those are often the niches that convert the best, so you've got to strike your own balance and figure out what will tease your potential customers but not offend (too much). 4. There is such a thing as too much traffic for sexy videos. The reason being that the more people see it, the more likely it is that the WRONG people will see and flag it. I always know there's about to be a problem when I see my traffic suddenly spike without me doing anything. That means one of my videos got a bit too popular and suddenly everyone's looking at it. Soon after, that video gets banned and I've got to do some more uploading. Also, the rise in traffic usually comes with a decrease in overall conversion ratio. The best scenario I've found is a video that's getting a good steady number of views but not a huge amount. Most of my videos get 1,000 or fewer views per day, but I upload a lot. It should also be said that you should really think about your niche when you're choosing keywords. If you just use sexy generic whatever keywords to try and get as many people as possible, the traffic isn't likely to convert. So, hone in on what the people who are likely to actually buy are searching for. You'd be surprised at how much traffic can be had for niches you probably didn't even know existed. So, there's the formula. Hope that helps.
