    Hey ;)


    We know that advertissement is not allowed by Youtube but it could be tolerated in some rare cases.

    -> And better, we can find technics which allow us to make our video non-commercial look.


    And that?s what I want to figure out.


    How to avoid videos/accounts deletion the maximum we can, because of flagging ? :rolleyes:


    What if my video looks as totally free informations about a specific niche ?
    (Like "a free ebook" for example),
    if I present my video as pure free informations, with NO optin, just direct download by clicking on the link in the description ?

    Do you think Youtube goes far enough (watches all the video) to judge if the video can stay or not ...? :rolleyes:


    In other words, as the title says :D why Youtube accepts to delete an video or an entire account because someone flagged the video ?


    Little last question, is the keyword ?FREE? pretty bad for YT video titles ?


    Thank you all :cool:

    No YouTube does not look at the video.
    if your in a competitive niche could be flag bot.
    The video needs to be flagged several times before it goes down.
    I don't think it matters if your video is commercial or non commercial
    except for money in your pocket.

    Put your videos in private or unlisted test to see if its account creation or an uploader bot causing the ban.

    If vids live after a week, you can rule out account creation and uploading method causing the ban.

    Then public your vids, if banned shortly after then probably flag bot.

    Test each keyword one by one in your titles description and tags to find out which keywords are causing the ban.

    Put in quotation marks your keywords in youtube search. check to see whose uploading regularly with success daily weekly. It doesn't mean that that's the person flagging you but it could be.

    Try and avoid a flag war at all costs. Maybe better to be more creative with your keywords. Flag power is usually greater than upload power.So you will loose more than likely unless your upload power is greater than there flag power.

    Great-great tips, thanks a lot for all Sinamon :)

    Just copied your post in my PC !

    Very helpful, and yes I have to try, test etc.

    I really like the "videos in private first" tips. It makes a lot of sense.


    Have a great night.


    If someone else has also ideas, suggestions, I will be glad to hear them :)

    Youtube has a mass flag bot that deletes videos and accounts according to titles
    tags, description. Also if your IP has been tagged as spam from your prior videos you
    uploaded, they will continue to ban any videos with spam keywords such as make
    money online, work from home etc. However I have seen some people get around that.
