My Channel Got Terminated - A Second Chance
Ryan Straight Up Playlist: goo.gl/mLq6oB
A week ago my youtube channel was suspended! And Today After YouTube has been so kind to give me a second chance! I would like to share with you how to not get terminated on youtube!
For one follow the "terms of service" i know there are a lot of rules on there, and reading is not something that many of us like to do but..READ THE "TERMS OF SERVICE!"
This is a second chance that not many people get and i don't want you to fall into my same pit falls! My channel got terminated or rather how they phrased it "my channel got suspended" from mistakes that should easily been on my mind!
When a youtube channel suspended is returned the feeling i had was so great! I am grateful to all of you that helped support me during this time!
I got terminated on youtube for losing site of what was truly important to being a creator! Today i share with you how you should focus your energy to truly succeed on Youtube!
My channel got suspended, this doesn't have to happen to you! When i got terminated it was the worst feeling in my entire life! don't let this happen to you!
Follow our social media:
Thank You All For the Support This Past Week! You Have Been Incredible!
Be careful when "commenting!" My issue specifically was commenting in mass amounts over a span of time, on channels i had already been subscribed too! "Spam" is a broad violation make sure you are familiar with the "Terms of Service" Now!
Please Take My Advice In this Video, there is no short cut to success!
Crimson confirmed it was a bot in another post on this thread.
I thanked him for clearing it up as it put my mind at rest for commenting on my own videos when doing giveaways and such.
Kudos to him for being clearing it up for me also.
My point being, If the ban happened just for commenting im totally on your side, if the ban happened for using a spam bot to make comments that would be for instance a more obvious error on your part, super curious about this.
I do despise spam. I always report people when the only comments they leave are links to their videos, channels or websites. It’s so annoying when people only view you as a bulletin board to promote themselves.
So you were spamming comments? Yeah, I know from over 6 years of experience moderating on Google+ that Google don't play when it comes to spam. Back in January of 2017 we watched hundreds of members of just one of our gaming communities have both their channels and G+ accounts terminated in a second flat. Despite years of trying to warn people, no one ever listens. Even our community guidelines directly reflect the consequences of Google's algorithms, again, entirely ignored. People have to learn.
For the record, once you get caught violating their terms of service, Google's response is always to drop your rank and cut your visibility, and such penalties often last for months on end before they time out. In other cases they never time out and the account is pretty much permanently destroyed. Either way, if you got busted for spamming comments, its going to affect your rank and visibility here for a considerable amount of time, at least a few months.
Likewise, contrary to others statements here, you can't get suspended or terminated for commenting too much, there's no such thing, and that's not how their algorithms work. Google looks at more than the frequency of commenting when determining whether or not something is actually considered to be spam. They look for things like duplicate comments, people begging for followers/attention, and those who comment on videos they never actually watched.
I know their TOS is pretty vague when it comes to what the rules are, but this is wholeheartedly how it works. Another thing that can get you into trouble is making use of irrelevant keyword tags in your videos, and using too many of them.
I hope this is a lesson learned.
Powerful message dude - thanks for sharing the reason. I would have never thought comments would have caused the closing of the account. They should have given you a warning saying you are sending too many rather than just closing.
But the main thing is I'm glad you are back in action. well recovered!
A week ago I was checking your channel see if there is any new video, but then youtube said "this account has been suspended" and I was surprise, like what did you do? you didn't post violent video or any kind of bad video. But because of your comment?
😂. Well, it's good to have you back bro 😊
Hi there CrimsonStudios.
I am curious if you simply got in trouble for too many posts or if the issue was the means by which those posts were made.
I have read a few places here and there suggest a form of spam bot was used in this instance and wanted to clear that up if possible.
Were you banned for simply posting or more specifically posting beyond a humans capacity to do so?
I appreciate you clearing that up, I assume I cant be the only one with a tiny channel who sometimes leaves comments to relay info to viewers, I was worried if human levels of comment leaving were a danger, sorry to be so dry and forthright in trying to get the answer I was after and good luck to you in the future, best of luck.
I'm glad you were able to come back and took this as a learning experience. ❤ I also wish YT would do a more case by case punishment or at least talk to it's creators instead of just going nuts with banhammers. :/ Either way, WELCOME BACK!!
I'm glad you're back man, I haven't received any suspensions myself and hope I never do I personally didnt find your content malicious or misleading but hey I'm not YouTube I look forward to seeing what you do in the days to come
Unless a comment is actually attempting to redirect traffic somewhere else, or is somehow intentionally harmful, I see nothing wrong with leaving a comment. This draconian policy needs to be modified so that interaction with content is encouraged on this platform. The ability to interact with content is one of the greatest things about YouTube that sets it apart from the old guard print and televised media platforms. YouTube needs to understand that or it risks losing a lot of creators in the process.
And the best think i done is defend Ryan i not only that i made choice that i could made video to roast youtube but also I completly Roasted Keemstar and Youtube on Twitter plus i asked to help my friends to got his channel back btw i make Rap Music and Music Videos so i dont have an issues with Youtube
Dude, you did pop up in the spam box a couple times with comments, but I always just hit approve. Didn't think anything of it. If I see that happening to anyone else, I'll let the know right away.
Glad you got back and were able to tell us about it!
You would do great things there! its just starting from the bottom again but less stupid requirements...some are more tough but they seem more logical. so come on and raid the stream on Thursday. EVERYONE WELCOME!!! https://www.twitch.tv/epicsnacktimegaming
The problem with YouTube is there's so much content to look at, they have no choice but to start automating certain things. And the problem with automating things is that robots don't know what they're looking at half the time. They don't have the information human employees do so...this happens. Good to see you back though dude! Congrats :)
We understand...We all make mistakes ! It can be so hard to get noticed on YouTube as it is even with content as great as yours ! Your honesty and transparency is all to your honor ! So glad you got your channel back ! My daughter and I wish you nothing but the best ! That’s the key takeaway...focus on the message and the quality and expose ourselves in the right way...even channels like Smosh had 2900 subs many years ago...
I'm so happy you're back man. This is a great victory and a great thing YouTube did, as you stated. I think it's great that in your time of suspension you went deep within and learned something about yourself and this platform. I and many others alike appreciate you sharing what you've learned. I will be taking a step back to evaluate what sort of message I'm putting out in my videos, if not at least trying to improve my storytelling/scripts. Love that you're back, great return video, and I'm looking forward to your new wave of content my dude :).
Ryan I'm sorry you found yourself in this situation man, but I'm glad you've taken the second chance as a growth opportunity. You've done extremely well with your channel man, and I hope for more success for you down the road sir :) You reached out to me on Reddit a few weeks back with some really kind and constructive feedback, I'm calling the fact that I saw this posted today as Karma and a way to pay it forward :)
That was an amazing video my friend, I really like how down to earth you got and took the crappy situation as a way to reflect back on everything, that was really great man! Overall though we're stoked to see you back in action and happy everything worked out for you
you know it Ryan, you give your life away in I agree!! No one reads it watch that south Park Episode. They always wrap it into you broke something!! But I have to admit Ryan, I still do not exactly know what you did to avoid doing it??
I am happy that you are back my friend. Thats really true everything what you said, probably 30% of the entire users on YouTube probably were reading the full policies and what is on the contract from the beginning until the end ahah. You awesomeeeee :)
Ryan! So glad to have you back, sir. The beginning of your video reminded me of the South Park Human Incentipad episode where nobody will read the Apple terms and conditions before agreeing to them. IT WON'T READ! Haha. Way to take the high road, though.... not sure I would be able to do the same.
