    So I've found couple good niches to make $100+ on a good day, however, now I noticed that those videos don't stay as long as they used to about a month ago or so. The video removal message keeps saying that it was taken down due to violation of Terms of Service (it's a game niche). So is this kind of response because of flaggers or what? What do you think? Sometimes this happens about 30 mins after publishing.

    However, I do use unlisted and this might be the case. So I will try uploading public and see if it does happen as well.

    It really depends. You said it's a gaming niche right? If your uploading clips of games (for example) from a game on the nintendo platform they have in the past been known for taking down video's because "It's their game". But if it's a self made game or some app's idk

    Iv'e noticed this happening as well so i ran some tests of my own, its usually youtube's algorithm that detects the videos as spam and not flaggers.

    From my tests the main thing that cause these quick/mass bans are
    1. uploading videos as unlisted

    2. shortened/hyper linked links in the description (just watermark your video, if you add a link to the description make sure its not hyperlinked for example you can write www.example.com or example.com (links like that wont be hyperlinked) but if your link starts with http then it gets hyperlinked and gets detected as spam fast.

    3. nasty list of keywords in description (aka shitty keyword stuffing that used to work back in the day)

    4. uploading only how to/free download videos onto your channel (I make sure every 1 out of 5 videos I upload is a random gaming video type thing)



    (Extra tips that will help you)
    1. while uploading the videos just name them the game title gameplay, example: dayz gameplay. Then rename the video after a few hours to the title you want.

    2. I also leave my description mostly blank until after a few hours of upload, Then I add a good article that is spintaxed so its always unique and helps with ranking and getting authority to your channel so it would stay alive for months/years.

    3. dont upload a bunch of videos on to 1 channel in 1 day, what i do is i upload 5 videos a day to 10 channels, so i upload 50 videos a day for 4 days (total of 200 videos a week) then i rank the videos for 3 days, then as the next week comes along i rinse and repeat with new channels.

    4. I also upload a few stock videos to my channels and add legit looking interaction onto those videos/channels about a week before using those channels to upload tutorial type stuff, what that does is make youtube give your channels a bit of authority so videos rank better and your channel seems more legit.

    5. once you learn to create good authority channels then youtube mostly ignores any flaggers on your videos.

    ps
    I also do the gaming niche and by doing what i told you ^ up there, I haven't had a channel ban since september, it seems like a lot of work but i was able to automate every thing with some stuff (MVB Pro, and I made a yt ranker bot that shares/likes/subscribes/favorites/comments my videos with 350+ channels). Any way just make every thing look natural and yt wont ban you (as much). Good Luck OP

    Everything is true except one thing:YT's algorithm only checks the video if it was flagged at least once,and then if it detects it spammy, it gets immediatly taken down
    If algorithm itself detects the spammy video without flagging than it would say:the video no longer exists because the account was terminated

    Sorta, what i do solved the flagger problem for me aswell. I was ussually getting "the video no longer exists because the account was terminated", so I was getting picked up by yt algo, but like I said after creating more authoritive channels, I havent had a ban in months, I even flagged my own videos from multiple accounts and still the videos are alive. The stuff I wrote solved the flagger and the algorithm problem for me for now. but il keep running more tests to improve my method.

    In response to Just A Tyler Durden: I think this is most likely the case. Because it's impossible my videos get flagged so fast. Actually it's totally random, if I'm lucky it may last up to a few hours. If it was due to flaggers, I probably would be getting the message saying "spams, scam" etc. My accounts never get banned - I am always able to upload until I get the second strike.

    Also, that's a good idea not to name the videos during upload and rename them later. The trick with no hyperlinking may decrease conversion but if that helps the video stay longer it's alright, I guess. And the extra tags, I only ever put those so that videos rank for more keywords. Cause if I don't, it's very hard to get traffic to my niches.

    But how can I spin the descriptions so it's not the same? Because I obviously keep uploading the same niches over and over hundreds of times.
