    I experienced a real blow today.
    I had quite a nice amount of hand made, watermarked videos, nicely ranked and earning. I was at 0,022$ per UV with CPA.
    But I did a novice mistake. I didn't shorten my website link in the video description and guess what happened?
    Some active *** *** *** searched for my website and flagged my videos. Half of them already got deleted and the second half is up, but probably already under review.
    I am pissed and depressed at the same time.

    Now thing is... how am I supposed to protect my videos? Even if I shorten the links, there can still be some mega active ****, who will go to my site, see what I have there, search for those keywords and flag me.
    I thought of making 5 videos per site, but this is quite time consuming and expensive to buy domains for each 5 videos.

    Any advice or ideas? I am tired really and almost ready to give up after this.

    If you don't upload shit, your videos won't get flagged.

    I always flag videos on YouTube videos that shouldn't be there. There is no way to get around this 100%.

    In my opinion, it was flagged by some other IMer, who does exactly what I do. So he just "got rid" of competition this way. It's not about "shit" as you say.
    I don't care if someone flags one of my videos and it gets deleted. Those are expected losses, but not half of them.

    I know it sucks, but it will continue to happen. Its the Youtube game. Its happened to me before and I took a few months off and bounced back.

    You probably are under review but start again on a new channel if possible.

    With the new layout of the like/dislike updates the new thing I'm seeing all over the place is, I see a lot of people making comments on original sketch comedy videos saying: "Not funny, I couldn't find the dislike button so I flagged it, I encourage everyone else to do the same!"
    That doesn't seem fair.

    Are you beefing up your video with views/likes/favs/subs/comments?

    I'm with you! I just had a channel with 30 quality review videos shut down today because of community guidelines... wtf!?
    Definitely competitors flagging.

    I put in an account review request... but knowing what I know about mama G... I doubt that will do me any good.

    Yes, I am beefing videos with likes, comments and stuff, but not that many. That's one of the reasons why I am sick of flagging, because it cost me something to rank those videos.
    I even have public like/dislike buttons, so they can dislike the shit out of those videos if they want.
    I had 1 video per account per IP. So each video had it's own account and own IP.
    Good news is, that the rest of the videos is still there, so at least something.
    I wonder how to find this anyway.

    Should I spread my videos accross more domains? See, I am using CPA content locking.
    I thought about using subdomains or trying to make the rest of my content on the domain unsearchable.
    But I am still brainstorming about this. If anyone has any idea, I would be thankful.

    Try using more than one url shortening service, this will make their job a little harder.

    Not a bad point. Thank you.
    For now I decided to create multiple subdomains on one domain and do 3 - 4 videos per subdomain. This way, nobody will be able to find my videos on youtube.

    That will not help you, a google search on your domain name will list all your videos. Use different free domains or url shortening.

    Multiple accounts, multiple domains, multiple niches, multiple link shorterers.

    I also plan to use link shortening + all websites are set to no index. So there is no way how can one google all my videos.

    Multiple accounts - check
    Multiple domans - kinda check, working with subdomains now
    Multiple niches - kinda check
    Multiple link shorteners - check

    Is there anything like that? But I guess they are all "custom made".

    The same thing always happens to me, which is why I spread my videos over different accounts, and domains.

    Well I did one mistake, which was costly indeed, but I think I should be safer if not safe now.
    It's a trial and error after all.
