What The Hell Is Happening with YouTube.

A couple of days ago I noticed that there was a significant drop in my leads it wasnt big but I noticed I was getting 15 to 20 leads less than the usual. So I go to check on youtube (I get my traffic by ranking YT videos) and I noticed that a bunch of my youtube videos were taken down (new videos and videos that were 2-3 months old). They all said terms of service violation.

I did and always use fiverr to get views to my videos to help them rank but that wouldnt explain the videos being taken down because I still have a lot of videos that were not taken down yet I used fiverr to get a bunch of views to them. Anyone knows if there was an algorithm update or what?

    What are you promoting? is it the content or the method you have been using to get views which has resulted in the videos being taken down, there's a couple of variables there.

    Also have you considered using proxy? Google checks a number of things with our accounts. They closed my 3 adsense account at once some 6yrs ago. Use clear cookies when exit and flash cookies clear browsing etc ...

    I think they know that they have thousands of illegal movies in their database and leave them just to make use of the traffic those videos generate. Of course they will take them down if reported.

    Yes there is a new update toward fake views. It was mentioned in another thread here on the forum. This is why I never buy views in order to rank a video. It's a myth that you can't rank a video without using paid/fake views.

    As for why your other videos aren't taken down, well I don't want to scare you but they may get deleted in the future. Hopefully they won't, but only time will tell. Whatever happens, you should be more careful in the future and think twice before you order views again.

    If you do not own the product or service promoted in the video, such as an affiliate product this is against the Youtube TOS. You can be permanently banned as well so becareful.

    Any type of artificial inflation is always bad at least from an ethical standpoint.
