    Brief explaination first, setup a wordpress blog being fed from my youtube channel...got it all automated but my videos are constantly being flagged etc on YT. I tried putting them through handbrake, but still happens. I orignally thought if you changed/converted the file (giving it a diff md5 hash tag) and the audio (unless the video needs it) youtube wouldnt be able to pick up its a simlar video. How do you guys get round this?

    Also, are there any essential some tips and tricks for somebody just getting started? Pitfalls etc (account already been flagged twice :( )

    Thanks

    Ok guys ,thanks a lot for posting...but clear what? My cache? My leased IP? Can you explain what and why (just in a few sentences?)...I like how you are being cryptic, but come on haha!

    Cheers

    lol on these two amazing posts.

    The truth is that your videos will get flagged no mather what. As long as you are promoting fake content (or even if you're not - people just get pissed when they see surveys) - every single video you upload has good chances of getting flagged and removed.

    The more legit your videos look the longer they will stay up. I see a lot of people uploading videos and then closing the ratings and comments. Needless to say that besides the fact that this drastically reduces the click through rate and conversions it also screams "scam" louder then anything.

    Another thing: the more videos you have on a single account the faster it will get disabled. Accounts with hundreds of videos rarely last more then a day. If you're mass uploading to hundreds of accounts using bots this strategy can ad will bring you money but this isn't a long term business as the moment you stop uploading is the moment you stop earning money.

    My strategy with youtube is simple and has served me well for over a year: one video per account, good number of likes, a couple of decent comments ( not the usual "great video" crap). I have many videos up for a year that are still making me money everyday and havent been flagged. in fact, very few of my videos get removed. I'd say that from every hundred videos I upload, 90 are still up after two months.

    Also, you will want accounts created from diffrent IPs so that if one account gets disabled it won't drag the rest along. Good luck and if you have any other questions feel free to ask.

    I actually thought it was me being stupid and I should know what these guys were talking about! Thanks for clarifying that haha!
    Great post, gives me some stuff to think about. I will make sure when creating accounts, maybe do it via tor network or something (dont have a private proxy)

    Im embarrassed to say that my videos were popular funnies that I got from around the interwebs and somehow (even tho I recoverted them etc)...got flagged then banned! Doh! Not the niceset ways of making $ kinda ripping people off...but I thought if other people do why not give it a try. I since found out youtube trawls the uploaded video and searches the audio for matches...is that correct? Or do you know youtubes methods?

    Thanks again

    I seen in another thread here somebody mentioned video spinner blaster...I will download it when Im home. Say I downloaded a video which "matched 3rd party content" or something to that affect...would this program get round this? Do you know how it works/what does it do to the video? (re-encode/change the hash tage etc)

    Thanks for explaining it to me as well, like I said Im new and want to learn from the experts!
