    Hi guys,
    Yesterday, I had a damn fine landing page, in a health/diet niche... That was good old times,
    This morning I woke up to a stupid YT emote/sad face with the message below... What triggers it? I can't think of anything except some angry customer reporting it... Is there an automatic system?
    This video has been removed as a violation of YouTube's policy against spam,scams and commercially deceptive content.

    your own fold 1 flag will be enough to send YT bot check on TOS of video if yt see yes it's braking TOS then video banned also risky if u placing them all in 1 channel after few times they gone ban channel

    weird stuff, the vid was unlisted on YT, no comments allowed, etc... and used only to be served on a landing page amongst others...

    What do you meant by unlisted in YouTube?
    You said that video is on some landing page, so it meant that the video is public, right?
    Not allowing comments will carry you nowhere, some random people could just report your video.

    Just re-upload a new video, and put it back in the landing page. You said you use it only for landing page, so if there is a loss of "amount of viewers" I think it will give you no problem.

    They don't demote commercially inclined videos. But there is MAJOR abuse going on right now. They're bound to take action at some point...there'll be a major crackdown on videos anytime now.

    By unlisted it means the video won't show up in searches or on Youtube's featured videos, only people with the link can view it. So yeah, it's probably one of those unsatisfied buyers. Or, if your landing page was ranking somewhere, a competitor might have found it and reported it.

    Try to use different accounts for videos in case it keeps going, or if the video is purely used for the landing page, find another video host or host the video on your own server or somewhere that can't be easily reported or taken down.
