    Hey everyone apparently I was in violation of this:


    • You agree not to use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, "robots," "spiders," or "offline readers," that accesses the Service in a manner that sends more request messages to the YouTube servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a conventional on-line web browser. Notwithstanding the foregoing, YouTube grants the operators of public search engines permission to use spiders to copy materials from the site for the sole purpose of and solely to the extent necessary for creating publicly available searchable indices of the materials, but not caches or archives of such materials. YouTube reserves the right to revoke these exceptions either generally or in specific cases. You agree not to collect or harvest any personally identifiable information, including account names, from the Service, nor to use the communication systems provided by the Service (e.g., comments, email) for any commercial solicitation purposes. You agree not to solicit, for commercial purposes, any users of the Service with respect to their Content

    I'm not sure what the exact issue with my videos were. I had purchased views for some of them, could that have been it? I wasn't using the account for any spam or anything so that couldn't be the cause. The videos were all very similar but differentiated from eachother in some way.

    This is really pissing me off as they were ranking for some VERY competitive keywords.

    oh yeah they are taking down tons of videos right now because of fake views, etc. so be careful...

    I have a provider that I used to source views from which was really cheap and fast but now 98% of those videos are deleted by YT. I did notice however that all my videos ran within vagex are still up and running fine though.

    Hmmm any one wanna test sending cheap fiverr views to random video to see if they get taken down? You could wipe the comp out and rank your videos nice!
