    Hi few years ago i created some videos and it had a good ammount of views. Last week i added a Clickbank direct link to differents products for that videos. Today my Youtube Channel was banned and also I cant access to the gmail account.

    I am affraid because i have 2 channels more but that channels had adsense in the videos, do you recommend me to remove the direct clickbank link for that alive channels? To keep my channels online. And also do you recommend me not to promote any products for future videos. Many thanks

    Safer to link to an actual page that belongs to you. Then promote the CB product there.

    Any affiliate link will flag up and they will shut it down. As above said, use something to hide the link.

    You used the crazy long hop link that CB creates or a shortener?

    Are you sure that it was just due to promoting a clickbank product?
    Did you put the direct nasty hoplink in your video description?
    Was the video owned by you or it was captured from somewhere else?
    What about the competition of that product? Maybe the competitors came and flag your video?

    I guess he put the long hoplink created by CB, but I am not sure why YT removes the channels if we put direct hoplinks in the description? Why they do so while even if you cloak it, finally they can notice that it is a hoplink....

    So what was the reason of ban? Spam/misleading or copyright issue? From my experience, CB videos get rarely banned out of nowhere.
