    Today I discovered a ClickBank video of mine on YouTube was finally removed, it had been up since around early October. (Really even a lot longer if you count the original version I uploaded and then took down).

    What I'm confused about is exactly how it violated the TOS ? So in the title I used related keywords which were ALL non-buying keywords, more so keywords on how to fix a problem. Then the video was short 30 seconds, but it that time it looked pretty good. Then the first thing in the video description was something like this

    "Download the software here - LINK"

    Then I had a unique paragraph underneath it I wrote to sell the person on how well the product worked and to just make it look more than spam.

    This video was fine for so long, the only thing I can think of was about a month ago I wanted to test something so in the description right beneath the link I also added something like "You have to pay 49.99 to purchased this product, but it's worth it". I wanted to see if this would change conversions at all, but is this something YouTube does not like ? I was worried about adding anything related to money/costs.

    I never tried to trick anyone, maybe in my description I talked highly about my product, but it's far from a trick.
