    I don't know what happened, but I had uploaded a YouTube about a few weeks ago, and I logged in to view the stats to my surprise, I had over 40,000 views from 60 views overnight.

    I thought that was insane, and thought must have been some blessing...but a blessing in disguised.

    I logged into my email and got notified that his video was banned because of so much views. YouTube accuses me of using some software/robots to generate that much view...

    WHEN I HADN'T DONE ANYTHING LIKE AT ALL!!!

    I'm not sure how, but I think it may have been one of competitors who intentionally did something like that to get the video banned.

    I tried contacting YouTube to explain what happen, but there is no way to contact them. They warned me if this happens again, they would banned my YouTube account without appeal. My concern is if my competitor can do this again, and then my account will be banned when I haven't done anything I all.

    How does somebody do something like this of generating false traffic to YouTube video?

    I'm sure YouTube can track where these activities are coming from, but there's no way to contact Youtube. I don't know how to contact YouTube to explain my situation.

    What do I do, and how do I prevent this from happening?

    YouTube is failing here. Why don't they just remove the views? Removing the entire video means that this can be abused by competitors.

    YouTube has implemented a new system for detecting false views, as we all know its is flawed because you can get a video taken down by simply sending views to it. At this time ALL views providers are effected. Even people who didn't use bot views are getting their videos removed. It's basically a giant Fuck Up by YouTube.. But im sure they could care less..

    Lots of people getting their videos deleted. Doesn't seem like it's any specific source. Twitter is going crazy over this.

    Now all views supplier are using traffic views method or mobile views method with ref.
    How they are tracking traffic views.
    Although mobile views only working for only refer but to much risky.
    don't know what going to happened with social media business in future.
    just one word=-- fuck:-(facebook,twitter,youtube,instagram). Apply this theory for all of this social media site.

    well upload it again, and allow google ads they will see it differently and they would think before deleting your videos cause somebody flagged it
