    If a video is of fake nature, would it be easy to take it down by reporting it?

    I'm just wondering if anyone has any experience with this.

    What do you mean by of fake nature? Do you mean fake socials, such as likes and views?

    You can remove it from google searches by making the video private. If it is not yours however the only way would be to report it to Youtube for breaching the Terms of Service agreement, and if it doesn't then you will have little to no luck.

    He asked if it would be easy to take down by reporting it, so I doubt he means his own video. It depends on what you are trying to get it taken down for... what do you mean by 'fake'?

    No, you can file as many reports and Copyright infringements as you want. If the director can prove that the video violates nothing, then the video will remain. Perhaps maybe you should outrank the video with a similar method and alert people if the video is fake.

    The product being advertised in the video is an informational one and the nature of this product is fake. It's not really something that could be sold in a legit store because it's a bunch of bullshit. I wanted to get the video taken down as I'm in the same niche though with a different approach. Then again you could say the same thing about me advertising this product but what can I say, it sells well.

    I thought of getting it taken down rather than outranking it because then it would still be underneath me. Currently there are two videos, previously there were 3 or even 4, not sure now.

    Well I know for craigslist flagging can easily get ads taken down. For youtube though, I believe it only warns moderators to check the video.
