    I'm getting really pissed.
    I upload 10 vids per account, and someone is flagging me constantly.
    I suspect its the competition. Someone is probably constantly checking the "niche" and flagging new videos.

    I did some tests. Several flags are usually enough to take down these types of videos, no matter how many views and ratings the video has.

    It seems that the only solution here is to upload 1 video per account and hope that it passes under the predator's radar.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks

    If you post something "special" what is easy to track for example your site URL in description, well you get a point.
    but i don't think you should be paranoid of competition, it's most likely youtube which got crazy lately...

    Well you are going to get flagged that's how it works people get greedy and don't want competition you should do the same to them.

    Also keep on trying to upload more videos some are bound to stick.

    you must be using sexy videos or something risky I would assume? I have never heard of several flags getting a video removed...if so can imagine how many people would be removing videos left and right? not to mention the services that would be offered for this

    Doesn't have to mean it is competition, youtube is getting crazy lately.
    If you are sending videos which are no no according to them, they probably delete everything from your ip address after one complaint. Hope this will change and they come down a little bit.

    @ racku - wow videos are so easy to track.
    I didn't realize this: just enter the domain in the search box on youtube and you will get all uploaded vids pointing to that domain in their description.

    @ dre7 - unfortunately uploading more videos does not work. I uploaded 100 vids from different accounts and all of them are currently down.

    @ appleman - nope my vids are not sexy :)

    @ balkanboy - i used tube accounts made from different ips. I uploaded 10 vids per account with a fresh ip.

    it's most likely youtube which got crazy lately? Possible. I'm determined to isolate the problem.
    Its possible that youtube or my competitors links the videos by the description. I used the same description.

    Ok in order to bring some value to the community I will do some tests and I will report the results in this thread.

    To check if the competitors are flagging i will post a video with a completely different description and link. If it gets flagged ill be 90% sure that its the competition.
    Note there will be only one vid on a tube account with a fresh ip. If the vid remains alive for some time than the solution would be to get several new domains and spin the description.

    It's war out there and I would say the viewers flag more than YT. Flag them back with great vengeance and furious anger, and you gonna win.:D

    first of all try uploading something completely different in an unchecked and uncompetitive niche. . . make sure your scrambling all your titles, text, etc. . if all your accts go down its ala YT . . . I recommend that make sure you know that your being flagged before you go off that someone is out to get you.

    All to often people underestimate the power of YT and its ability to bust your ass for mass loading
