    I had something similar happen to me a couple of times, I was ranking 1 + 2 on Youtube in a competitive niches , then one day I just disappear!!

    I thought it was a competitor flagging me, but after a couple of days one came back....the other never did.....

    So I think youtube just spins out every now and then and just madly shuffles videos around./

    may due to fake views or policy violation
    Flags can also dump a youtube video

    I looked at the user name for it and it only said 1 VIDEO instead of 2 man. I hope this one comes back but I think its a weak competitor

    ugh just heartbroken about that but its part of the game I know. It was really doing good and it was there for a while. Getting sales from it and everything from youtube solely!!

    What does the video show when you go to it?

    Does it say this?
    This video has been removed as a violation of YouTube's policy against spam, scams, and commercially deceptive content.

    If so, It's more than likely youtube that removed it, Never tried flagging an aged video with that many views but i assume it'd take hundreds of flags.

    if it was the top video then its most likely flaggers. surprisingly it does not take much to get a video down.I know guys who flag.even though i dont like it.nothing i can do and they only use 2000 accounts thats it. it usually the guys under you 2nd or 3rd video that will flag you.thats competition.

    Sorry for the lost, I thought mass flagging was fixed by YT long time ago to avoid dirty competition. Could anyone confirm this? Do you mean a video can be taken down by using , let´s say, 500 accounts to flag?

    Has to be someone who finds it highly profitable to invest in the resources to do 2k flags then.
