    If you are doing CPA Network offers on Youtube there is a chance to get banned that is why you need Quality videos or big amount of videos where in any given moment you will have videos that are live. In your place i would go with both.

    As was stated above, don't break the Rules/TOS and you won't get banned- it's pretty simple.

      Sometimes that is a little difficult knowing how Google and Youtube has too many rules. Even if you follow all the rules there might be complaints and your account can be knocked down. It all depends what are you doing exactly on youtube and then approach right.

        The redirect could be the problem, or the particular type of CPA.

        Or you are just one of those "lucky" people who youtube has taken a dislike to.

        It sounds like you are continually breaking the tos. Youtube told you to stop, but you just keep on posting the same stuff. So now the odds that your videos (even if they comply with the tos) will be flagged and deleted is much greater than the average user who doesn't break the tos.

        Don't try to dig the bullet out of your foot, you'll only make it worse.:rolleyes:

    I've been searching around and i found this
    Code:
    Videos removed for "spam, scams, and commercially deceptive content" typically involved one or more of the following:
    
    1) MLM, Ponzi, pyramid, get rich quick, or gifting scheme/enterprise
    2) URLs with affiliate or referrer codes, monetized URLs, content locked pages
    3) misleading text in Title, Description, or Tags in order to gain views; text unrelated to video content
    4) using automated tools or botz including purchased views/subscribers
    5) hacks, hacking, software piracy

    I wish I could help but you know you can't mess with big brotha Google. Man I wish one day every person in the world would rise up and never use Google again. I don't think I have ever hated a corporate entity as mush as I hate Google.

    Not just because they are big and powerful. I can live with that. It's that they just don't care. It is too much work for them to sort out the good from the bad so they just wipe everyone out. It sucks.

    Good luck my friend. Every thing I do in IM is without Google as much as possible.

      This might be part of your problem. Are you promoting the free gift card or whatever without disclosing that there is an obligation attached? A reasonable person might just consider that a scam; hiding it behind a redirect doesn't help.

      Being a "habitual offender" probably doesn't help.

      As for the way the rules are written, it's likely done on purpose. Otherwise, you get too many people parsing every word looking for loopholes to slither through.

      Look at this forum. How many threads start with something along the lines of "how can I do this thing I know isn't allowed without getting penalized"?

      Then why do links on your site in your sig. lead to your Google +1 profile?

      I guess it's just out of hate for Google.:rolleyes:

    That's why you can not rely on them for all your traffic.

    I had one video that got me close to 50,000 views in a matter of a few months. I got from that single video like 10-20 visitors to my site per day.

    I was happy but then they decided to do the same thing that they did to you. I was mad and can imagine that you feel the same. Nothing you can do about it but you can master other marketing platforms to drive targeted traffic to your site.

    Just make sure that you don't add more and more videos there and HOPE that they don't do the same thing again because they might.

      Yeah..but the problem is that i can only use free traffic.Except video marketing i dont know any other free traffic, yes article writing but im not that good at it also SEO..Btw I had a video with 30k Views for like 1 week, i had few videos with like 10k views getting up to 50$/day with only youtube.Youtube is definately worth but they ban so often now..

    Yes, YouTube is definitely moving toward quality content. Not only do videos rank well that get a lot of views, but the "engagement" throughout the video plays a very important part in how well they rank (example: are viewers clicking on your video and then immediately going somewhere else or are they watching the whole thing).

    What were your videos like, komplexed? Were they slides and music? Were you talking on them? I am just curious to see what they were like, if you don't mind...

        I don't have any real evidence to back this up, but I'm hearing more and more about channels that use Animoto-ish videos getting banned.

          Probably because a lot of people use it for marketing videos.

          The main issue here is not that Youtube don't like videos - it's that people are making promotional videos and then acting like victims when nasty Youtube doesn't like it - Youtube want to advertise on the videos, they don't want you doing it. They want good quality that people want to watch, not a bunch of video sales letters.

    The obvious answer is to post quality videos on Youtube.

    You can also try using some of the secondary video directories for videos. This doesn't mean to spam them, but they may have lower standards than Youtube has.

    Original poster: You are wasting your time asking for help on this. The bottom line is that YouTube (and people here) see what you are doing as spam. You do not have a business model. You need to get a proper business model. Then use YouTube to market useful videos that people actually get value from.

    Hi Komplexed

    The truth is YouTube does not favor Marketing Videos. That's not to say it won't work, but it is a Social Network, and they don't like too much advertising.

    That is why sites like FaceBook encourages it users to keep their business separate from their personal page.

    So what you may have to do is use other marketing ways to build your business.
    I do know CPA marketers that have concentrated on list building and have been successful.

    Maybe you are not good at SEO, or Article Marketing, but if you keep trying there will be other traffic sources you can master

    It would be much much more than the CPA offer you are using with videos there on Youtube, which is in turn getting you loss of accounts after a certain time period.

    Its always not your users, or community checks your content but the users who see it & understand can report it which makes it go banned ....

    I hope you get everything taken care of. I feel bad that my friend got disabled from youtube because of some things we shouldn't have put in the description but we learned from it, if I would have caught why some of her vids got deleted maybe I would have seen why it happened in the first place and well its a good thing that I have all the vids saved!! We got pretty popular like overnight and then bam we get hit with this!! It suxs but then it gave me the heads up on what I can or can't put up and so happy that I didn' put everything that I have. Now I have to look at my vids with a fine tooth comb and hopefully edit those things out so we won't have to restart from scratch!!

      There is nothing you can do to avoid their attention completely. There have been too many WSOs that have gone out saying things like “anybody can do it”. and then the go on to instruct newbies to do product slide shows and to use other techniques that lead to massive amounts of similar low quality videos being dumped on YouTube. Personally, I'd never try a spammy sounding free iPad type CPA offer just a guess, but no matter how you do it you will eventually get kicked out.


      I try and build all my channels up If I have a total of 10 videos in the channel maybe only 2-3 will be commercialized or have outgoing links. And then I never directly link to an offer I'll direct them to my page with more information than my video has and then I'll have the out going link on that page. So take some time off learn Camtasia or Screenflow, Sony Vegas or some other product that is going to help you get professional and individual looking results. Set up a Channel with your new videos and don't put any links in the description. Once you see what two videos out of your ten are getting you the most eyeballs come back and put links in those two video's desription going to your domain and a short article that provides the user more information and a link to buy the product or service.

    Try this....

    In the video description area add 200-300 words of content that are related to your video and put it just below your affiliate/redirection link. It shouldn't take you too long to do, and that really will do wonders for keeping your videos under the radar.
