    So I am uploading a lot of videos. Occasionally some accounts get cancelled, usually due to flagging by competitors (thanks guys). A lot less get cancelled these days than they used to be though. I would like to hear what you guys do to make sure your accounts stay alive longer. Basically just brainstorm a bit. What is the max amount of vids per account that you find work the best? Do you see any problems when you, for example, access a Texas-created account from a New York IP?

    WHAT I AM CURRENTLY DOING

    1. Only creating one PVA account per phone number. Unfortunately still using Phillippine mobile numbers with US registered YT accounts. It is not ideal but seems to work.
    2. Not buying accounts from any seller, instead using a trusted connection to create them for me. I would not trust any normal PVA seller. Bunch of shit-talking hustlers
    3. Trying to avoid using HMA (hide my ass) vpn since everybody else is using them.
    4. Cleaning flash cookies and regular cookies. Making sure to exit my browser and then restart it.
    5. Keeping track of which state the creating IP is from, and then using an IP from the same state to log in.
    6. Never logging in to the account again. I upload my videos and then leave the account alone.
    7. Using bit.ly links in description. No normal links to my own site.
    8. Uploading about 16-24 videos per account. Which is probably too many.
    9. Uploading steady but slowly. No more 500 video batch uploads in a day anymore.

    WHAT I COULD DO TO IMPROVE THE PROCESS.
    1. Use aged accounts. But that increases cost and handling issues.
    2. Use US mobile numbers for US accounts etc.
    3. Emulate normal surfer behaviour more.
    4. Upload fewer videos per account.
    5. Get a really good private proxy provider with fresh IP's, or start scraping dynamic ip ranges myself.
    6. Use a large selection of vmware guest OS's to make absolutely sure that everything is unique.
    7. Fully master browser strings.
    8. Avoid flagging-happy niches.
    9. Use the same proxy for creation as well as uploading.
    10. Not use the generic "hot 16-22 year old white girl with random sounding name" profiles that I am currently using.
    11. Use Vagex or similar to add up some "watched the entire video" stats, as well as thumbs up. This method could of course backfire.

    Anything else?

    P.S. One thing I've noticed is that when I use dynamic IP that refreshes on router restart, then I can create regular accounts that last just as long as VPA. But I am in Europe. I guess with a third world IP you always get forced to use mobile verification.

    Here's a gentle bump, more of a nudge really

    You should get in trouble over the IP issue, many people change country in their setting to be eligible for monetization of their videos

    Actually, the most important thing is - the kind of videos you upload.

    You could upload 1000 different useful videos and not get banned but on the other hand, you could upload just 10 randomized videos and have a whole bunch of accounts banned automatically for spam.

    If you think about it, like any other website, youtube uses a lot of HD space and bandwidth each month and to remain profitable, they need to keep their expenses as low as possible. So, instead of having millions of spam videos stored on their Hardisks, they would rather identify those spam videos and delete them asap.

    So, upload more useful videos rather than uploading useless slideshows.

    Which browser would you recommend? Firefox and IE are quite annoying on very slow proxies, chrome seems to handle them much better, but on the other hand, it's a google browser. ;)

    @manking I do most of my videos by fresh dynamic IP's in the European country where I live. The rest of the time I do all American IP's cause my YT VPA provider gives me all American accounts.

    @daserpent. Point taken about putting up better content there. But I can create 10K useless slideshows in the time it takes me to make 50 proper videos :) It's a balance act really.

    @mrbelvedere. I have not noticed any difference in speed related to proxies no matter which browser I use.

    Videos getting flagged and taken down is impossible to stop if you are going against their tos.

    What has worked for me to keep my accounts alive without leaving any bread crumbs behind is good private proxies, each account on their own profile on firefox, and install the better privacy plugin to get rid of those pesky flash cookies.

    Avoid spamming YouTube at all costs. Create different and unique content
