    Hi, So today my video got removed for a second time!
    The first time I uploaded my video it got removed for spam, scams and commercially deceptive content. So I edited the video, changed ip, used CC Cleaner and then published it again, it was up for about 2 weeks getting around 40 PPD downloads per day, so I sent another 2000 views using viral socials and it got removed for the same reason.. I'm not sure if boosting it caused this issuse because last time I done it, it got removed straight after aswell...
    Do you think somebody is flagging my video?
    It is a high quality video and I have a good landing page so I don't see how it can keep getting removed.. I'm not sure if I should upload the video again and try for a 3rd time?

    What do you all think?

    For sure, people flag videos when they see content locker, but that isn't reason to stop. 40 downloads per day is lot from one video. Keep working, add more videos.

    edit: also upload other videos, and don't use same account. 3 videos per account!

    yup, someone is flagging your videos, and as moskri922 said, upload more videos of similar content because 40 PPD per day is pretty good

    Its certainly not boosting thats causing it. I have boosted the living crap out of videos before and its never caused a single video to get deleted. Over the last 12 months in fact, I'm yet to get 1 video deleted.

    The problem in your situation is the mere fact that you're doing PPD.

    This is the main reason I will never do PPD or CPA with youtube. If I ever did that stuff I'd do it on a website. Its way too much damage control dealing with competitors flagging videos. And because of that PPD can't be a real passive income. It becomes more of a job. Videos get deleted, you upload and rank new ones. Over and over and over.

    If I were you, I'd find new niches with less competition, or start ranking a site instead. ORRR stop breaking YT's terms lol.

    Are users getting what they want when they fill out the survey? If not then there is your answer out straight, also, you can't really expect to keep videos up that are linking to PPD offers, they will always eventually get deleted

    That happens when people flag your video when it's new. Happens

    So would you people recommend uploading the same video for a 3rd time?

    i would recommend uploading the video with a different name and tags that have nothing to do with your niche and wait 1-2 weeks

    meanwhile build a nice link profile for it

    after that change your videos name and tags to what you need and go to the advanced tab of YT settings for videos and set the record date to the date to "TODAY" (that means you hit "TODAY" when you change your tags and title... not today as in ... today today... as in 8/17/13)

    What would waiting 1-2 weeks do for my video?
    Would it make it harder to get taken down as it's been up for a while?

    Your videos keep getting flagged so you might think it's not worth it to keep uploading if its gonan keep getting flagged. But think of it from a different perspective ... was the amount of money you made while the video was up a profit compared to the amount of money it took to boost the video and the amount of time it took to upload the video? I would assume yes (40 downloads a day). So just keep uploading it .

    You could be honest with the viewers. Humble goes a long way.

    i had the same problem with a very good micro niche on YT which some guy was dominating... i really think he was from around here too :D

    he had a good system too ... he was searching for YT videos related to his and flagged the accounts so not only the videos got deleted but the accounts got useless / banned as well

    what i did in desperation proved to be the solution ... i uploaded my vid with a name "dhwiuashdias" and tags like "disjoaijda" "dsoajodi" .. you get the idea

    after that i boosted the video with subscribers and favorites and created backlinks to it with the keywords i was targeting (bookmarks, social shares, blog comments, etc)

    after about 1-2 weeks of keeping the video under his radar i switched the name and tags to my keywords and in about 2-3 days the video was ranking on the 2nd page of YT for a 1.200 search pool that was dominated by one user... needless to say he did manage to bring it down again but i was there for about a week or so before it happened

    if you do fear of a mass flagger and you have the time and patience to upload 10-20 vids daily and silently boost them this might work for you but you do have to take into consideration the ROI ... is it worth it or not ?

    because of the massive amount of users and the ability to flag videos YT is mostly a numbers game ... he who has the power gets the cash

    i'm wondering if this can be done for FB pages as well... if a certain amount of users / fake accounts flag a page won't it get deleted at a certain point ?
