    So, I wake up this morning to a wonderful email from youtube saying my video violates their TOU! Awesome! NOT!! They re-uploaded my video automatically and made it private. I made the reuploaded one public and sent an appeal in about the pulled one. My video was #9 on youtube for my main keyword the other day and was moving up pretty steadily. I got the This following video was found in Violation of TOU #4 Section H: email. I thought I did everything right. I got backlinks to the video, got 30k hr views done over the course of a week, had 25 comments put up (was going to have more done), had about 400 subs, and was on my way to 1k likes (over the course of a month), and about 50 social shares from each major platform over the course of the week. Hopefully they approve my appeal (I doubt it), if not, how should I move forward? Thanks for any input and help guys. Luckily I'm only out about $24.

    Anybody have any advice on how I can prevent this from happening again? Or how I messed up? I'd really appreciate any advice or help.

    Slowly build up your views. YouTube is deleting videos that build views using bad scripts.

    View providers are in scramble trying to fix this.

    is the video unique, or someone else also uploaded it on youtube, or do you use some service for views etc?

    I both agree and disagree with this.

    View providers are definitely in a scramble right now. I've gone 2 years straight w/out having a video
    taking down and over the last month I've lost 2. One video from BB another from VS.

    The thing is, one video I tried to build up slowly with views. And that one was removed first.

    The second one that I blasted (no dripfeed), lasted about 3 weeks longer. So I think those specific
    vendors are compromised.

    Whats ironic, fiver gigs are NOT getting my videos deleted. Which is the last thing I'd expect.
    I blasted several other videos using 1 fiver gig and none have been deleted yet.

    So I'm avoiding all the major view suppliers for now on, until this gets sorted out.

    My video is completely unique and I used a fiverr gig. I think this time around I will go with a slower view provider so it doesn't raise as many flags. Maybe 30k over a month instead of a week. Could you possibly pm me a link to the fiverr gigs you used and that worked for you? Thanks

    I uploaded a video 2 weeks ago and for the first time ever didn't buy any views at all but instead ordered a Fiverr gig for a GSA Ser run (There was a glitch during the running and the guy gave me an extra week so I didn't have the basic gig on offer). My video is now:
    Youtube #1 - Google Search #10 Google Video Search #1. Am happy to post the link but just joined literally a few hours ago and finding my way around. Can I post a Fiverr link???

    Fiverr gigs are getting videos removed too. This happens to random videos, it's not every video that is inflated in a way YouTube deems unacceptable, is deleted, otherwise we'd have a much bigger issues.

    Can't speak for others, but since I released my HQ views, everything has been running smooth and no videos deleted.

    Anybody have a cheap provider that hasn't gotten their video pulled? Bunnygirl, try writing dot instead of the period before the com. Dagreyon, I may look into your views if I can't find a cheaper alternative. I realize your views are pretty cheap as is but if I can find a safe 30k hr views for $5 on fiverr then obvoously that's the route I'm going to take.

    Been using Get Accounts dot Org lately, haven't had anything removed. Really liked YTForce dot com, but they disappeared.

    LOL - if you knew me you'd know I'm WAY too dumb and confused (at this stage anyway) to even think of using GSA safely. I tried out GSA on my video after a guy I follow and trust recommended it to his list as a way of building backlinks on a new vid. Just checked my video and it's still there ranking high SO FAR!!! ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN AT ANY TIME and it could be pulled or dropped like a stone, but so far so good. Buying views is also great and I've a lot success doing that too - I was only reporting a new tactic that's working for me. Link below for anyone who wants to take a look at it - if not that's also cool. Good luck.

    It happened to a lot of my client who bought likes, views for YouTube. That era too is coming to an end. Welcome to the real web where it's easier and better to go white hat. And funny enough, you are trying to buy another fake view.

    From my experience, my videos which have been taken down fast are with a lot of likes very soon after upload. This could, however, have been a coincidence.

    Bunnygirl, I think I read the same blog you mentioned. I could be wrong. As far as someone saging I'm still trying to buy fake views, well yeah, how else am I going to rank my video? I share it in as many places as possible and still only get a few views so it seems that the only way to get it noticed is to get the fake views initially and let it grow organically from there. For instance, I made a fan video for a very popular rapper, it was very high quality, and they posted it to their facebook and blog and after about a year its only got about 25k views. So it seems to me that the easiest and most time efficient way to get a video ranked is to get the views and then let it grow. Youtube didn't mention likes in their email only views but who knows. I guess these are the risks doing blackhat things.
