    So I am going to be making about 30 videos or more soon..

    Was just wondering how many different accounts I should make? What are some of the reasons for having multiple accounts when making lots of videos? Is it mostly because of the risk of getting banned? Or what are the other benefits?

    Also, if I'm making about 30-40 videos, about how many accounts should I make?

    Thanks for the help.

    the main reason is just like having multiple girls. If one left you, you're still not alone :)

    Yeah this is kinda what I figured as well...

    So you think I should have 1 account for every video then?

    Here's my (usual) method:

    1.) I only upload 5 to 6 vids to one account. Every account has it's own email.

    2.) I have other (bought) accounts that I use to rate, fav and comment on my own vids.

    Once in a while I check my most favorite vids (in my server stats I can see which vids are bringing me traffic)

    With a lot of traffic there's more chance of people being pissed off. These are the ones that give me bad ratings.

    With the bought accounts I rate the vids to get them back to 5 stars (or close).
    This looks better for future traffic.

    Thanks..

    I have a question about having all those accounts to use for ratings and comments.... If you have like 100 different accounts that you use for ratings, doesn't that mean you need 100 different proxies or IP's to sign into all those accounts?

    Now this is only my experience so no guarantee.

    I never use proxies when logging in to my accounts.
    I do however clear my cookies and cache between every login.

    For uploading I use TubeMogul, so the uploads to YT (and other vid sites) are not from my IP.

    Like I said this is only my experience.
    I'm into vid marketing now for 1 1/2 years and it only happened twice that I had a row of accounts (4 to 5) banned all at once.

    This doesn't have to be IP related. Could also have been the similar titles or descriptions.
