youtube account termination

13 replies
I don't know why youtube banned my account with no pre-warning or email. I uploaded 3 videos yesterday and the day before yesterday. I think possible reasons maybe as follows:

I used bit.ly to shorten the affiliate links and I heard it can lead to suspension. I don't know anyone who has that experience.

I blasted a lot of bookmarks and profile links in one day. I used bookmarking service to blast 94000 bookmarks and xrumer. I don't know if youtube actively detect a lot of backlinks which appear all of a sudden.

I used the same computer with the account suspended before.

Have you ever experienced any of those?

    I'm just shaking my head ... Unless this is a parody of similar posts from idiots wondering why they were banned.

      It seems you know the answer, but can you say it a little bit soft?

      There are many and I don't know which one is the right one for me.

      I didn't put any links on the about page.

    The fact that you blasted your videos with 94,000 bookmarks is insane... That says it all. You need to approach this sort of thing with ease. For example, I just launched a new affiliate channel last week. I'm letting it grow organically in the beginning, and then I'll eventually promote it to my already-existing YouTube audience of 72,000 subscribers.

    This is Google we're talking about. You don't want to mess with them.

    I'll give you the benefit of the doubt this isn't a windup as April Fools day is a few weeks away yet.


    A few lessons learned here, 9,400 bookmarks would have been excessive!

    Try again...next time avoid bit.ly and redirect via a webiste
    If you need a bit of a kickstart go over to vagex and buy a few views, likes, etc and drip feed them slowly, same goes with backlinks, a slow steady link velocity is going to look more natural in Google's eyes.

    What?? is that bookmarking service to blast 94000 bookmarks and xrumer within a day ? I dont think they will ban you for this but I'm sure they dont like affiliate links.

    As for affiliate links, I don't think YouTube minds them. As long as you provide quality content alongside them, affiliate links will not be a valid reason for deactivating an account.

      Then I think content is the problem here.

    Try and avoid mass backlinking like this.
    Don't forget YouTube is owned by Google.
    There is no science to ranking YouTube videos.
    Produce videos of quality.
    Optimise for the search engines and allow them to age.
    Avoid buying views, comments etc otherwise you risk losing your account that way also.
