    Hey,
    I had 2 videos running on YT which were bringing me HIGH quality traffic. They are legit videos, with affiliate links inside - no PPD, PPI. And they kept bringing me traffic for 18-19 hours. Now I wanted to see if they are still running and I couldn't find them. So I went to my vids manager and found them with 0 views, 0 likes, 0 comments (although they both had 4k+ views, some comments and likes) and they both are set to "Private".

    Anyone knows whats going on? ;)

    Happened to one of my vids as well, but few months back. Were you using any music in the vids?

    You probably used fake views(qqtube or such).
    I am not surprised,that happened few days ago to many videos,not just you. :) It was a update by youtube on fake views and even qqtube got affected on a large scale .
    Mine vids survived though. xD
    Take a look at this thread and you'll know what I mean : http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...sh-tload-views-alot-videos-now-they-gone.html

    Hi ,

    Youtube changes: Instead of deleting your video they are rolling back views to the point where they think is all natural so if fake views been detected they will simple remove them (the views) from your video while keeping your video alive.

    As mentioned with fake views they'll zero it out and set to private now. A lot of people have been having this issue.
