    I've been using around 50 or so YouTube channels for over a year to drive traffic to my sites and until recently I've never had any problem - I've always been careful to change my IP, never uploaded too much at any one time and always kept content varied but relevant. In the last 48 hrs all these channels have been suspended by YouTube. Anyone know what they might be doing to track me or how I can get round this?

    Yes, same Happens to me. My extra 2 accounts got suspended, even though both channels contain unique videos..

    It's a case of risk vs reward. You've been exploiting the YouTube platform and now you've been caught. It's time to move on. No matter how careful you are, it won't last forever, much like blackhat SEO.

    Maybe the links that you point to your site from your YT channels was the footprint that got you busted.

    Yeah, this could definitely be associated to the footprints on your videos, all pointing to your site.

    Have you found a solution to create multiple channels without getting ban Thomo89? I'm using my YT accounts with multiple channels for the past 6 months but yesterday, all of them can't access YT. (I use different fresh IPs/account, use ccleaner and use incognito when browsing.)

    YouTube never was intended to boost visitors to your site if you are claiming to be someone else, seems like tough luck I'm afraid since you tube will probably not reverse their decision.
