    I created a video about two weeks ago that was ranked very nicely, this wasn't your standard niche PPD, or anything like that.
    In FACT... I didn't even have a PPD link in my video.

    It was a video that was teaching people how to make money with PPD, how to set everythign up, just a purely informational video, with an affiliate link to a PPD Site, which was 'offered', but not 'required'. I also listed a non affiliate link.

    This video was flagged and removed from my account: Rejected (content inappropriate)


    Really confused here, because I can't find anything in the ToS

    Maybe because PPD is linked to fake niches...IDK if that's the case but I'm guessing that could be one reason why that happened. lol

    Maybe competitors flagged it repeatedly.
    Try it again and see how long it takes to be taken down.

    It violates the T&Cs because it is commercially deceptive content. The intention of your video was to win affiliates to make money of them, not to selflessly educate people. Otherwise you wouldn't have included you aff. link.

    On how they found out, some asshole probably flagged your video or your account got reviewed because of unusual activity. It happens.

    I don't see how it was deceptive, as in the video I clearly stated, visually and vocally, the website. I let the viewers know that they could sign up under me as a thank-you for the video tutorial, but it was not required, I also educated them on the affiliate system.

    As per my observation, youtube doesn't allow videos which do not have any "substance". I have some videos which are related to PPD ( not making too much from them but yeah there are a few) for long time, but they are not banned because they have something to offer to the viewers and they are not bullshit.. for sure...
