    I currently have 4 YT accts. All of which i made, and have been logging in with the same IP address. There has never been a problem, but i dont want to risk it. I am not doing anything spammy, just some video game videos with sharecash links.
    I want to step it up and start making more videos and accts. Should i worry about my IP? Should i use proxies? I have verizon fios so switching my IP is not an option.

    I have never had a problem with YT and IP - I never bother to swap IP while moving between accounts - although I do run CCleaner real quick. I have had YT accounts killed due to copyrighted content...etc - and when that happens...it never affects my other YT accounts that I had been loggin into from the same IP (as the killed account). Based on that I would say they don't "track" IP that way? However I only have a couple dozen accounts though...and I don't mind risking it because they are nothing that can't be easily replaced.

    With a few accounts (max 5-6) you'll be fine. Its not uncommon to have more than one person accessing the same computer.

    I use the same IP's all the time.
    Being it my own or the ones from my team.

    No prob whatsoever, up till now.

    People are talking about risk in this thread.
    Everyone will have a legit reason for this warning.

    My experience however is that risk isn't a factor to consider when making money on YT the Blackhat way.

    YT is a numbers game. The more vids you have up, the more money you make.
    Losing accounts/vids is part of the equation.

    Shielding your accounts and vids from dangers only matters if you're using YT for a Whitehat business.

    Imagine having like a college with all got the same IP?
    And let say 100 of them login to their youtube accounts, created with that ip, and now logged in from same ip.

    As far as i know here in Sweden is that Collective Punishment is not legal to do.
    I donĀ“t know what laws you others have but. Youtube is the pain in the ass right now.
