Just trying to figure out if my channel has been maliciously reported? Because last week it lost virtually all of it's traffic, and actually disappeared from youtube for the channel name search.this week it's getting back to normal, but even by searching the channel name is in 15th place, whereas it was no1 for the channel name result.

Is there any way of finding out if's been reported or who has reported it, how does it work, does someone actually from YT actually check the report? I doubt it.

I know there has been an update over the last few days, but the channel name almost disappearing from search had me perplexed. Did anyone else have the same?

I've got no community strikes, no emails from youtube, no copywrite and absolutely no dodgy content.

You can't tell that someone reported your channel until action is taken.Look for threats in the comment section.But weird things are going on with Yt algo videos are taking too damn long to get found by Youtube even with real views and engagement.

Thanks, it wasn't so much the lack of views that set off alarm bells in my head, it was that my channel was nowhere to be found when I searched for it using its channel name rather than being at the top spot where it's been consistantly ( for it's channel name- nothing else)

I'm aware of personalised search results, so I always search using a VPN in the same country as me and an incognito browser.

Not sure what the gremlins at YT are doing but its a pain...
