    Is there a tool going round for flagging peoples Youtube channels?
    I've been reading a lot of people losing accounts over the last couple of months.

    I had channels and then for no reason they are gone via spam ban and when I search for the same thing, there are other channels with the same videos and they are still live and going. :(
    (I was uploading videos with expired copyright, not mine but not anyone elses.)

    Any ideas because if a competitor is flagging me, how can I stop them?

    no thats just youtube cleaning up... if you have anything that looks spammy you are gone... but if you can post the video .. maybe there is something different about it .

    Is that a new thing from google? I had the accounts for years, one was from 2013.
    Any tips for flying under the radar? One guy cloned my channel right down to the tags, descriptions, avatar, background, etc and hes still up and running. :(

    Youtube has been sending people correspondence along the lines of "if a video exists primarily to drive traffic away from Youtube (and to another website), it will be considered spam and be subjected to Youtube terms of service." In other words, if I have a video that says "Hey, you can make money quick this way, here's a teaser on how to do it, but the full instructions are at the URL in the description" and then place a link in the description, it will be subject to Youtube's more recently enforced guidelines. If, however, the URL is secondary to actual real content in the video, it's possible that Youtube won't see it that way. E.g. if you have a makeup tutorial and put an affiliate link in the description you might be okay. Youtube's suggested video algorithm rewards videos that "lead to an overall longer viewing session", so with longer viewing sessions being their primary goal, it makes sense that they would begin getting very strict with anything that is contrary to that goal.

    I read about the links away from youtube and didn't have any links at all in the descriptions.

    Here is the tags I used.
    popeye,popeye the sailor man,sailor man,popeye the sailor man cartoon,popeye the sailor man song,popeye the sailor man spinach,popeye tv show,popeye the sailor 1933,popeye the sailor,kids tv shows,kids tv shows full episodes,children's tv shows,full episodes of,children's tv programmes,old kids tv shows,old kids tv programs,Max Fleischer,Jack Mercer,Mae Questel,Gus Wickie,betty boop,popeye the sailor volume,
    And the title was something along the lines of Popeye - s01e01 - blah blah.

    Could it be cause I had 20 odd videos with the exact same tags?

    you tube is a hit and miss so many ppl use the content that posted it unreal, so unfortunately youtube
    bans accounts with the same videos but arguing who own it first will be a lath.

    use youtube as a traffic source burn and go

    you need to use youtube as a burn and go situation all you want is load of accounts
    and upload and give a url in the description and add all the keywords as possible

    get the traffic and do that on every account.

    youtube like fresh ip address and video not duplicate that it.

    once youtube no your a im your ban anyway

    buy accounts from here that the way foward

    Youtube is kind of strict (the got that from google).

    Just don't post too spammy videos. You have to be very good and professional to survive in the spammy niches.

    "full episodes" and "s01e01" is your problem. About 6 months ago Youtube went super strict with many keywords like this.

    That makes sense, do you think I should use something like "Popeye - Blah blah" or "Popeye - Series 1 episode 1 - Blah blah"?
    I'll remove all tags thats not 100% popeye related like tv shows,watch,tv,full episodes, etc and see how I go :)

    Na, didn't work. Got my 3rd Popeye account deleted, same reason from google. Tags didn't contain anything "tv","episode","season","series","watch", etc.
    And used a brand new IP, never used it before.
    Description was 1 line saying like:
    While on shore leave, Popeye takes Olive Oyl to a carnival, where he is challenged by Bluto in various games. Later, while Popeye is dancing on stage with Betty Boop, Bluto seizes the opportunity to kidnap Olive, forcing Popeye to come to her rescue.

    And the name of the video was "Popeye - Popeye the Sailor"

    Any suggestions? Pretty gutted :(

    exactly same thing happened here , all of sudden I have lost 6 accounts today which were made 6-10 days before and completely different kind of contents. the accounts were made on 3 different IP address. I think that These kind of things have happened for last two months . Strange thing is that suddenly Multiple accounts which are made on close date are banned same day. It is like youtube has a code that checks every two weeks or something ..

    I have no clue what googles code is for checking for "dodgy channels" as I even lost an account that didn't have any video and hadn't had any for over a year!
    Don't know if this is a permanent change or if its a google bug.

    I think they are killing a lot of channels by mistake and if they are legit ones, they expect the users to kick up a fuss and then they reinstate them.

    Yes that is what I am talking about. It is getting weird. What is up with that all community strikes nowadays (even there is not anything in the content that is against a community ).
    All I want to know is that to pass that weird alghoritms.
