    Almost every MF account was just banned. Besides a few hundred accounts that I bought recently and that were just used to rate posts(no spamming), they went and banned all my money bringing accounts that had 1 video on them. 1 Fucking Video and that have been up for over a month or two. I created most of the accounts manually too, and they survived the last few bans. It seems like They just blanket banned all of them...WTF? It will take me like 2 weeks to get them all working again, which is fucking crazy.

    They just went and fucked up my whole business plan....I guess I'm back to the drawing board.


    Was anybody else hit hard today?

    That post was absolutely unasked for. How the f*ck do you want to know that he is a scammer?

    To OP: did you remember to change your IP for everyone of these accounts? Cookies etc?

    Yea, it seems today was D Day for a lot of youtube accounts... I wonder what criteria they used to ban the accounts? Just multiple accounts from same IP? Must be more than that???

    Yea, of course, all the detail like IP and stuff were taken care of. I think I figured out why they banned all of these accounts. Seems like I exaggerated slightly, and they only banned the accounts that went up in the last 2-3 weeks largely.

    What I happened, I'm almost positively sure is, that I used YT Advertiser and their "Video Uniquifier" and youtube somehow caught on and banned all the accounts that had those videos up. The rest of the accounts that were just used for leg work, I don't care about for most part. So, if you have YT Advertiser, do not use that feature, instead just change the videos to different formats manually.

    Still though, that's 2-3 weeks of work time that I just lost....Sucks big time, as iwas finally starting to see good daily income...Grrrr

    They didn't give me any reason. They just said in a round-a-bout way " You are wrong, we are right so f' you!"

    Welcome to the club. Same shit happened to me last month.

    I kinda figured this shit was going down on a lot of accounts.

    thats why i dont use bots, especially the well known ones. yt will figure them out eventually. i just checked my accounts they are still up, but i did get about 700 videos banned last week. still tryin to figure out what the problem was but it was probably too many videos per ip. anyways good luck

    @OP i know it sounds harsh but it wasnt Youtube that destroyed it it was YOU! You destroyed it by putting all your eggs in one basket...

    Learn by your mistakes... i had a real eye opener myself i was relying heavily on Google, but as we all know shit can change in the blink of an eye so be prepared and try not to rely on just one thing or something/someone to be your #1 $$$ earner you never know when they may not be there for you...

    It sucks right now but I wish you good luck!

    first off your so wrong ive been doing it for months now. SEcond i only had like 30 accounts banned out of my 300.. which isnt bad i upload all kinds of videos, half naked girls dancing, music(Im stopping this one They ban alot) Comedy stuff everything really.

    So just make sure you upload to different accounts. ive uploaded the same video 300 times but one to each account. Use the video changer with no problems

    Yeah, YT had been more strict about accounts. I believe its because of same IP. Who know if you actually got affected by the accounts you bought. I had about 500 accs that last for 6 months. recently in january half of them got banned suddenly. the others are working.

    You gotta make your own accounts if you want them to last... Buying bulk accounts is for comment spam, not for uploads that you want to last for ages.

    I'd also add that uploading vids en masse isn't really a "business" - it's just a way of spamming to make money. I'm not judging, I make a fair chunk of change with Youtube myself, but it's not a long term gig and you should be pumping the profits into other things. Anything where you're dependent on spamming one privately owned site is bound to get you nailed eventually.

    I'm using YTA's Video Uniquifier and had no more bans than usual (around 1%) over the last couple of weeks (including today).
    The bans that occurred were copyright related.

    Just did a a check, two accounts banned out of 1000, also adult, same IP upload and youtube accounts were purchased in bulk all vids up for month or more so no complaints here. You sure you wernt attacked by someone not Youtube?
    I did notice my bot stop working around 2pm today cant get it working now, so maybe youtube is doing some stuff.
