    Hi guys!

    So... Today is a gray day for me. I just woke up and noticed that Youtube has banned all the videos I've been uploading for the last 2 monhts (around 200).

    These were videos targeting Amazon products (my own videos, created with Camtasia)

    When trying to check them out it says the typical message: "the account has been cancelled" (all my 200 videos were uploaded on different 200 youtube accounts. So 1 account = 1 video only)

    The way I've been creating Youtube accounts was with the old "Pinger ---> Google Adwords Account ---> Youtube account" method.

    So I'm suspecting that Youtube has caught the trick of creating accounts with verified adwords account (which were verified with Pinger).

    Anyone else having this issue today (October 24th)??

    Side question: Maybe anyone can share another resource to verified accounts (like Pinger)?? Obviously nobody it's going to give their private methods to create accounts, but maybe a useful resource.

    Thanks to all

    I am not seeing any banning, There must be some slight chances something might be caught on your case.

    To me the question is why have 200 accounts with only one video? Did you use at least 60-75 different proxies to create the accounts? Did you create accounts from the same computer?....

    There are so many way you can be tracked its getting almost pointless to spend an enormous amount of time and energy with certain blackhat techniques.

    The reality is that scamming gurus and blackhat techniques are making the google algorithm better and better. And unfortunately, as in any system of (Google) justice, even good people and their sites end up being hurt in SE listings.

    Create a personality, become an 'expert' in your niche and then slyly insert blackhat techniques along with your whitehat setup...OR, just get smarter with your black-hatting knowing that the big G will usually catch up and then you have to move on to another technique.
    That's the game

    I had used the adwords trick about a month ago, and all my vids got deleted a couple of weeks back on a specific day.

    I don't use the adwords trick anymore..

    Why use this Adwords trick? Why not just create accounts manually? I've never had a problem doing it that way.

    MAIN REASON BEHIND MASS BANNINGS ON YOUTUBE: Something is the same linking all your vids together.

    1 or more of the following is the same:

    a) Same IP....doesnt matter how many accounts you have. if they are on the same IP your done

    b) Same tags (title, desp, tag...) If a live youtube rep spots a video of yours and doesnt like it they will proceed to find other vids that promote your site/aff link and proceed to delete them. leaving the same tags in makes this very easy.

    c) Same links. don't use the same http links on your accounts. each one must be unique.

    basically every video has to be 100% unique if your doing the mass youtube upload thing.

    Thanks to all who took the time to write their comments.

    I'm guessing that Youtube is now taking a closer look on accounts which email ends with "textfree.us" (Pinger)

    The reason why I liked the strategy of using the adwords trick was because it was a lot FASTER than the typical process of creating a normal gmail account (Adwords trick = 40 secs per account ; Normal gmail account = 3 minutes per account)

    I was making a nice income of $1k - $1.5k each month with that method, but I guess is time to modify it (again).

    Just for helping others to avoid what happened to me, here's how I was creating my accounts:

    1) I was using a different proxy for each account (HideMyAss paid VPN)
    2) I was using different title, description and tags on each of the 200 videos (yes, 100% different...heck!...was a lot of work)
    3) I didn't include the same link in those videos... I didn't even repeat the same link twice across the 200 videos! (so that wasn't a footprint)
    4) I was creating around 10-20 accounts per day (this went for 2 months straight without problems...until today)
    5) All in all... Each of the 200 videos were UNIQUE.

    That's why I'm confident to say that my best guess for the banning is because of the Adwords trick. Now that I can read that some of you guys have also encountered this problem, I'm more confident.

    Lesson learned: No more adwords trick for me.

    @litenup:
    Thanks for the advice buddy. I once read here on a thread that dealing with Youtube it's like a WAR: They're going to throw a bomb to you at any given moment... So you need to take it as a man, recover from it and strike back (that's what I'm going to do).

    Cheers friends.

    Have just looked at Hide My Ass VPN. I would say this may also be a contributing factor. (Could also be the entire factor.) Private proxies are the way to go with anything. The proxies you used were probably spammed out on YT and on a ton of spam lists. I'm absolutely NO EXPERT on Hide My Ass (at all), since I've just looked at it, but it seems logical to me.

    Aside from changing your user agent, you did everything else right. I would just add:

    1. Change User Agent;
    2. Use private proxies (NOT shared).

    Thank you buddy, if I learn anything from BHW is that PERSISTANCE is the key for success. Appreciate the compliment.

    Thank you Krazy Kitty, I haven't really considered that as a crucial factor (but as you said, it could possibly be).

    If you know of any good private proxy provider specifically for youtube projects, that would be really awesome.

    I would certanly consider that factor for my upcoming strategy.

    On the side note with Hide My Ass VPN and shared proxies, some of the HMS VPN Ips are blacklisted as "potential source of spam" and shared proxies have a "unknown" factor about them. So be careful with any of those when you're dealing with adwords.

    I do heavy yt marketing and lose 40-80 accounts a day but it doesnt stop me. If yt was easy, every noob would be spamming it to death. Just make new accounts and carry on.

    It is like a war, neither me nor yt wants to give up .. but I know my will is stronger than theirs. I have had ALL my accounts (2k+) banned and still i got back up. Use private proxies. HMA was blacklisted a long time ago. Use normal yt account creation.

    Thank you very much daserpent for sharing your experience. Your words have definetely let me see a BIGGER PICTURE of my own situation.

    Now I can see things more clear.

    Let me also tell you that I admire your determination: Rising from a 2k+ accounts ban I think is something I had never even considered (first time I read it) but is just like you wrote: You need to have your will stronger than Youtube's and your competition's.

    I want to chime in just to say that I also think HMA IPs are worthless on YT nowadays, I've seen accounts created by VAs banned even before logging in, and they were created using HMA, with cookies (both flash and normal) cleared each time.

    I would totally agree the black hat techniques are making the Google algoz and updates even more stronger with each day.
