Included in the mass suspension (for 6 months) was famed ProBlogger. His account was suspended yesterday and reinstated today after massive protests.
Why Google suspended him is worth paying attention to...
His account - along with many others - was suspended because a video had the words Make Money as primary keywords.
As we know, the words Make Money are a red flag of evil to Google.
In didn't matter what the content was; apparently just the keywords got him suspended.
His other video that got his account suspended was about SEO tricks.
Here's what we know so far:
Google has stated it's desire to clean up YouTube and it looks like it's using the same criteria it's using in AdWords.
The following subjects are evil:
1. Make money
2. Gaming the Google SEO system
3. Exaggerated health claims
4. MLM/Network marketing
5. Stolen content
6. Videos with no content
7. Talking articles that serve just for a link
My main Google spy will be talking to the high mucky mucks inside Google today to find out what's going on but it appears that a YouTube shakeout will be upon us shortly.
Please be advised to be careful you don't fall victim to the latest Google/YouTube housecleaning update.
I'll post back when I learn more.
