    I uploaded a video on YouTube today. Something completely usual, same as my usual content.

    27 views later it gets taken down "Rejected (content inappropriate)"

    In my 100% honest opinion I believe I did nothing against the rules of YouTube. It's not even moderately debatable

    What could have possibly happened? My channel is 100% legit 100% whitehat etc etc.

    Always ask yourself: Are there competitors that dont want that video to be online?
    Would you have made money with that video or are you in a very hard contested niche?

    If you can answer those questions with yes, its possible that you got mass flagged.
    But if you uploaded a funny sketch its very unlikely that someone would put effort in mass flagging you, might have been an issue.

    Are you targeting banned keywords?
    Is your video original?
    Do you have affiliate links in the description?

    I am in a very hard contested niche. I have people that copy my ideas all the time. I am not currently making money, but may in the future.

    No.
    Yes (ish).
    No. Just a free download link to the song used in the video. (The song was given out as a free download)

    Not sure how many channels you are running, however I experienced the same exact thing. Got 10 accounts banned in the past, so I believe Youtube banned my IP from uploading ANYTHING with a link in the description, banned keywords, etc. etc...
    I uploaded the same video that got removed from another IP, and guess what? 2 weeks later it's still up.

    Change your IP, clear cache and everything else. Even upload from another browser, new account etc. And you should be good :)

    I did not create it, but it is not copyrighted.

    Change IP, maybe the IP that your ISP is providing you is banned.

    Hi I am bumping this to say that my video was reinstated. Turns out they took it down by mistake, I guess.

    They still didn't tell me the reason for the takedown. x
