    I recently (about a month ago) got a community strike and monetization was disabled for 6 months. After that strike, my views went from 250/ hour to about 1200/hour. Can you explain that? Also 2 of my videos (old videos) made it to 1st page in search for my niche and my subscribers went from 2k to 3.5k in 1 month ( i got the those 2k in 3 years). On top of all that, the audience retention went from 16-17% to a booming 40% (and my videos are about 50 minutes long). What could have caused this?

    P.S: any chance you can get monetized again after those 6 months, or will this YT channel be non-monetized forever? :)

    I didn't spam, the content on one of my videos was flagged by members of the community for deceptive content. My thumbnail had nothing to do with the video. Was just catchy. My bad, i was wrong to do that. But this was my 1st strike ever and i got the account for 3 years and 2 months now. I was just curious about that growth in views/subs/audience retention and maybe someone knows if i get the monetization back after those 6 months.

    IM all the way.
    That isn't weird. Your video started to get popular, which meant it had more scrutiny, and so it got flagged by the community legitimately.

    As your videos start to grow in popularity, you'll start to see more people flagging your videos. The best defense is to not be breaking any of YouTube's rules in the first place. Now that you're legitimately popular, you don't need to break rules anymore.
