    Hello everyone, I have been lurking the site for quite some time now and finally decided to get involved. My main questions that I have come from wanting to promote my videos on YouTube.

    I have a channel that focuses on video games and game commentaries. I want to know if making YouTube accounts to subscribe, comment and like the videos that I post from my main account will get my main account banned or into any sort of trouble.

    I have read a lot about users getting their YouTube accounts banned but it seemed that a lot of that was from re-uploading other people's videos and promoting affiliate links. I don't want to do any of that with these accounts. I just want to make them subscribe to my main account, like my videos, and comment. All of this will be done manually.

    1. Will my main account be safe doing this if I make these accounts or will my main account get banned?
    2. Should I use a proxy to make these new accounts and subscribe, comment, and like my videos on a proxy or will my accounts get banned by doing this as well?
    3. After making a "fake" account on a proxy will I need to somehow use the same ip address that I used to create the account on in order to comment, and like future videos after subscribing or will this matter? Is it even possible to use the same ip address in the future?

    Thank you so much for you help, I look forward to discussing this with everyone.

    I can't guarantee it your main account safety. Depends on your videos and views actually.If you have just 2-3 vids on youtube, you may get your main account suspended for doing anything suspicious.If you have more than 10,you're considered an important guy, and nobody is gonna ban you for fake likes and comms.(just for example purposes:if shane dawnson will upload a nude chick on youtube, he won't get banned, just the video deleted)
    I have 11 fake accounts, and use them to like my vids,tought i've got 150 likes on some vids.I use them just to sparkle the likes xD One of the fake accounts got banned,and thats because i've tested a bot with it, not because i had manually liked something(from the same ip)
    By the way, try some annotations with "like it guys" and "if you had a good time, subscribe", and with "next" and "previous" video,just to get more traffic.

    Okay thanks for the suggestions, I have around 20 videos at the moment but plan on making more everyday. I will also try out some things with the annotations because as of right now I'm not using any.

    What all would you consider, "Doing anything suspicious" so I know that I should probably stay away from it. Did you use any proxies to create all 11 of your accounts? How many did you use? And finally, it would be better to like and comment on the main account videos with accounts on a different ip correct?

    You won't be suspended if you are going to update the videos listed on your accounts. and have a limitation with regards to sending messages and likes. They can detect it if it will go beyond their limits per day. Just comply with their rules and regulations and they won't ban your account.

    I don't create more than 1 or 2 videos per day on my main account so the fake accounts would only be subscribing once and then liking the new videos that I post from the main account every day as well as leaving comments.

    All I am trying to do is simply promote my main account by making accounts that will subscribe and like the videos and comment on my own videos, not spamming other people's videos.

    Is the method I am talking about worth doing or are there better ways to increase the amount of subscribers, likes, comments and views my main account will be getting?

    I don't want to make a bunch of throw away accounts, I just want to get my legitimate videos that I make on my main account more exposure and rise in popularity. I'm not trying to sell anything, I just want the channel and my videos to get noticed since as I mentioned it is a channel about showing video games, so the videos I make are unique with game play and commentary.
