I have a few questions on the patterns/ reasons for YouTube banning accounts. Recently I've found some of my accounts to be taken down (no warnings, I just can't login....it says "Account Suspended"). If I go directly to the video it says: "Spam/ Fraud". Basically I want to know a few things which could be the reason for this; 1. Could YouTube monitor your account creation/ login even if you're using a VPN (e.g. MAC address) 2. YouTube seem to ban videos/ accounts automatically at the beginning of the week (around Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday) - so if you survive this first week, does this improve your chances of later survival as you are then not included in the weekly scan, it's more just flagging you have to worry about? 3. What's the mean reason for ban from Spam/ Fraud/ Misrepresentation? - Would it be using a similar description? - Would it be using the SAME mediafire link? - Would it be buying views? I feel (personally) that it's buying a blast of views, comments & likes (when you previously have 0 and then it shoots up to 30/40k and then you get very few again). I think this flags up (especially in the first week of upload) and if you have spammy keywords then they close your account down. I want to know if links also play a part in this. Any more info would be helpful, Thanks.
