Transcript of "How Do I Restore My YouTube Account"

  1. 1. How can your YouTube account be disabled? What steps do I need to take to get it restored? How can you prevent your account from being terminated? You wake up one day to check your YouTube account . Your heart sinks because it's been terminated. Instead of seeing your channel you get the message that you've violated the Community Guidelines. Watch the video: How Do I Restore My YouTube Account Here are 3 reasons why your account may be terminated: • • • Repeated violations of the Community Guidelines or Terms of Service A single case of severe abuse (such as predatory behavior or spam) Accounts dedicated to a policy violation (hate speech, harassment, impersonation, etc) If you're sure your videos did not violate any of these guidelines, YouTube will reinstate your account within 48 hours following an appeal process. Example Recently YouTube flagged the YouTube account of one of my friends. His account was active for 7 years. It contained a ton of videos that he used to market his business. He woke up one morning to discover all his hard work had been removed. This meant he could no longer offer useful content to his subscribers, market his content through his channel and not interact with his subscribers. Fortunately, after appealing to YouTube his account was reinstated. So how do you appeal a video strike?
  2. 2. According to YouTube... "Strikes are issued when our reviewers identify a violation of the Community Guidelines. When a strike is issued, an email is sent to the user and an alert will also appear the next time they sign into YouTube in their Channel Settings." To appeal a strike • • • • Visit your Channel Settings It will show your account is not in good standing Click the arrow next to the Community Guidelines section to show your strikes Click "Appeal this decision" link. Example In my friends case his YouTube account was restored within 24 hours because he was proactive. Instead of waiting for YouTube to make a decision on his appeal he wrote a blog post explaining why he didn't violate any community guidelines or copyright and asked people to comment on his post. Some of his friends also knew people who worked at Google. This helped speed up the appeal process. You can appeal each video strike only once. If they uphold their original decision on the strike, you will be unable to appeal future strikes on your account for a period of 60 days. Here’s a bit more information about what happens with each strike you receive: First Strike: The first strike on an account is considered a warning. Second Strike: If your account receives two strikes within a six month period, you won’t be able to post new content to YouTube for two weeks. If there are no further issues, full privileges are restored automatically after the two week period. Third Strike: If an account receives a third Community Guidelines strike before the first strike has expired, the account will be terminated. Copyright strikes Copyright strikes are counted separately from Community Guidelines strikes. YouTube removes content when they receive complete and valid removal requests. When content is removed, a strike is applied to the uploader's account. If you receive three copyright strikes, your account will be suspended and all the videos uploaded to your account will be removed. Users with suspended accounts are prohibited from creating new accounts. How to prevent your account from being disabled: 1. Familiarize yourself with the community guidelines and copyright violations.
  3. 3. 2. Create original videos Only create videos you own and have created unique content. Avoid using other peoples content such as: • • • • • • Audiovisual works (TV shows, movies, online videos). Sound recordings and musical compositions Written works ( lectures, articles, books, musical compositions). Visual works ( paintings, posters, advertisements). Video games and computer software Dramatic works (plays and musicals). What is Copyright? "Ideas, facts, and processes are not subject to copyright. In order to be eligible for copyright protection, a work must be both creative and fixed in a tangible medium. Names and titles are not, by themselves, subject to copyright protection. " 3. Give credit to the copyright owner In some circumstances, it is possible to use a copyright-protected work without infringing the owner’s copyright. It is important to note that your video can still be affected by a claim of copyright infringement, even if you have... Given credit to the copyright owner or Stated that “no copyright infringement is intended” 4. Get viewers to opt-in to your own list When viewers finish watching your video invite them to download a free report or software in exchange for their email address. This enables you to build a relationship with the people on your list by providing valuable content and recommending products to build their business. 5. Create alternative lead funnels You've probably heard the saying "don't put all your eggs into one basket." This means don't use YouTube as your only source of lead generation. Diversify your traffic generation strategies by using blog posts, forum marketing, social media (ie Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Google+), solo ads, guest posting, ezine publications and forum marketing.
