Will this put my legit Youtube accounts in jeopardy?

    Hi all,

    I've been studying up here and would like to start some youtube experimentation to make some money.

    My issue is, I currently have two personal youtube accounts (one for me and one for a family member) that are important and don't want banned.

    Would me signing up for many new accounts from the same computer (cable modem) jeopardize my current accounts should the new ones get banned?

    I've used HideMyIP a little in the past, but not sure something like this would work reliably.

    Thanks for the input and time. Appreciate it.

    Bulldog

    certainly is a possibility ..if they decide to get nasty they definately will own every account on the ip if its home based

    Try using proxies, or if your still scared, i recommend buying accounts from trusted members.

    Thanks for the replies everyone.

    As to buying accounts from trusted members - obviously this helps because they were created with a different IP. BUT, does youtube only track the IP that created it or do they also track the IP modifying and uploading videos?

    Thanks again.

    Hi

    Bulldog, im interestaed in this question too

    Would people recommend creating new accounts always with a seperate new email account on sign up too?

    Or could you get away with the same email for several?

    Making a youtube account takes 2 seconds making a yahoo mail account takes 2 more seconds.. just use the 2 extra seconds so you're more safe. I always make a new hotmail/msn/live/yahoo/gmail and then make that into a youtube account.
