    So I have around 6-7 accounts all in the same microniche. They all have around 3-7 videos each. Each video is unique but the description is the same. The description have a link which points to my website which directs people to a PPD site. This morning I found out YouTube banned ALL of my accounts. Some of these accounts were made with the same IP address and some were not. But all were made when using HideMyAss VPN. How can this happen? Is this because someone flag one of my videos and an actual person saw the same description and banned all of them or did someone mass flag me? I am really confused on how this happened. Some of my videos have decent traffic and views too. Most were on page 1. :(

    You can't leave footprints between the accounts, otherwise if YT bans one of your accounts, it'll be very easy for them to find and ban all of them.

    Using the same description is leaving a huge footprint. Needs to be different, including different links.

    So the only reason I got banned was because of same links? If that's the case, that would solve a lot of problems.

    Hey

    Do not use the same link for every video,use url shorteners.
    I use HMA VPN everyday and it works for me ,that cant be the problem...

    Ps clear the cookies always!

    It's possible that someone used the same HMA VPN IP you used, Spammed youtube, Got yours disabled, But if you used 1 ip per account the chances of that would be very slim.

    The same description on ALL the videos, Not a good idea and could definitely be the problem, I don't do uploading so i wouldn't know if that's a ban trigger but it looks like that was your problem.

    OP, don't worry, it happened to me too (not all videos deleted like yours, 'cause I have thousands up), YT cleans site from spamers once a week or month... it's the casualties you have to take in this game. :D

    btw: for every account, I use different ip, and for every video different title,desc,tags and links... even the videos isn't the same. Get the picture ?

    You have to use the different description for all the accounts and one of the reason from being banned that you made the accounts from the same IP address.

    The upgrade of youtube makes ALLLLL external links NO FOLLOW. It goes global in a short time.

    So getting banned is no problem at all. Because now youtube is worthless to spam.

    I experienced the same just today, all of my videos linking to one of my website was banned.

    Here is my experiences with mass bans

    1. I get mass bans because I created yt accounts on same IP range or the seller whom I bought the account created it on same IP.
    -When this happens, some of my older accounts are still alive, they are also pointing to my website with no url shorters

    2. I get massban even creating accounts on different private proxies.
    - this happens to me all of the time, but just today I uploaded videos on 4 accounts using proxies and all of my videos were banned, including my old accounts (4 months, 3 months old, they are all pointing to the same website not using any url shortners.

    *** I just checked all of my videos and those using URL shortners are still alive.

    Could it be that someone reported me on youtube and they took out all of my videos that contains my website url?

    This is really a dark moment for me as I have recently reached my goal of $200 a day and a big portion of it comes from youtube videos.

    If someone can give advice then I'd be grateful.

    Nahhhhh
    The rep that checked your account just had to typed in your domain name (from his PC youtube program) and bang, a list of your accounts came out. PLain and simple.
    Now i'm trying to figure out a way to make this work besides saying in the video to go to "THIS WEB SITE blahhhhh if you want to learn more about this", which in some cases, is impossible.

    Don't forget about flash cookies and btw. I heared google takes a fingerprint of your browser (it checks all addons etc. and then it makes md5 fingerprint of this). And if you create e.g. 20 accounts in a row from exactly the same browser, they might already know your intentions ; ).
    Use different browsers (use portable ones as well), install addons, you can use https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/user-agent-switcher/ etc.

    Out of the box, CCleaner is not going to totally do the job in terms of keeping you anonymous for YT account creation. You need to modify the settings in order to be properly prepped. Here?s what you need to do.

    Bring up CCleaner and go to: Options >> Cookies

    You will notice that by default, google is in the, ?Cookies to keep? category. You need to move it and any other cookies you want delete, to the, ?Cookies to delete? category.

    After you have completed that step you are going to prep CCleaner to remove Flash LSOs. These instructions are for Windows XP. See below for Windows 7 and Vista.

    Go to >> CCleaner >> Options >> Include >> Add >> Drive or Folder >> Browse.

    You want to find and then ?ADD? these two folders to your ?INCLUDE? list.

    C:Documents and Settings >> User name >> Application Data >> Macromedia >> Flash Player >> #SharedObjects

    C:Documents and Settings >> User name >> Application Data >> Macromedia >> Flash Player >> macromedia.com >> support >> flashplayer >> sys

    Next, you need to ?EXCLUDE? your flash settings so that they remain intact.

    To do so go to: CCleaner >> Options >> Exclude >> Add >> File >> Browse

    Then find this file:

    C:Documents and Settings >> User name >> Application Data >> Macromedia >> Flash Player >> macromedia.com >> support >> flashplayer >> sys >> settings.sol


    Here are the settings for Windows 7 and Vista;


    The CCleaner INLCUDE list:

    C:Users >> User name >> AppData >> Roaming >> Macromedia >> Flash Player >> #SharedObjects

    C:Users >> User name >> AppData >> Roaming >> Macromedia >> Flash Player >> macromedia.com >> support >> flashplayer >> sys

    The CCleaner EXLCUDE list:

    C:Users >> User name >> AppData >> Roaming >> Macromedia >> Flash Player >> macromedia.com >> support >> flashplayer >> sys >> settings.sol

    Next, to deal with the browser issue, you have three options.

    (1). You can use the ?User Agent Switcher? that Olgart mentioned in post #16.

    (2). You can use an assortment of portable browsers found at: http://portableapps.com/apps/internet. If you are thinking out of the box, you can set up multiple browsers with each version of browser. In other words, have seven different Sea Monkey browsers and seven different Opera browsers, etc.

    (3). Use a virtual machine

    Also, as others have stated, chose your IPs wisely. We use HMA VPN as well as elite proxies to create accounts and have never had an issue.

    And finally, your title, descriptions, tags and video length MUST be uniquely different. As far as your embedded URL, it?s really become a roll of the dice to repetitively spam any URL! If you are doing IMing, you should know how to rotate your URLs and stay under the radar.
