See Here How to Reopen Your YouTube Channel if It Has Been Closed by Google, by Following Some Easy Steps. Discover the Challenges and Repercussions of YouTube’s Automated Content Restrictions Impact on Creators’ Monetization, Channel Suspensions, and Balancing Quality Control and Fair Online Environment.
If Google has suspended your YouTube channel and you received the following message: “We’d like to inform you that due to repeated or severe violations of our Community Guidelines, your YouTube account (channel name) has been suspended. After review, we determined that activity in your account violated our Community Guidelines, which prohibit spam, scams, or commercially deceptive content. Please be aware that you are prohibited from accessing, possessing, or creating any other YouTube accounts. For more information about account terminations and how our Community Guidelines are enforced, please visit our Help Center at…” you need to read this article to see what you need to do to reopen it.
When it comes to praising Google, I do so without hesitation because they invest heavily in technology, such as diabetic lenses and free internet for underprivileged individuals living in parts of the world without access to the global system. They also provide other things we use every day that enhance our web experience. I also believe it’s necessary to criticize them when they mishandle certain situations.
If we were to discuss the websites we visit daily, YouTube would certainly be among them for many of us, as the internet would be less colorful without it.
Unfortunately, I’ve noticed in recent years that most Google services are declining, from the Chrome browser to YouTube, due to poorly made decisions. This includes the massive hiring of individuals from third-world countries in all departments, from support to programming. Instead of paying reasonable salaries and bringing in programmers from the US, UK, or other countries known for having quality professionals in this field, Google chooses to save money and attract people who, no matter how passionate they are about their work, have learned to do certain things through trial and error. They lack the necessary education and sufficient IQ to judge and dynamically apply solutions in complex situations.
This is why Google Chrome browser has its fair share of problems, such as consuming more power when watching HD+ videos on YouTube since they abandoned Flash Player NPAPI in favor of HTML5 player.
Consider the amount of electrical energy wasted globally due to this decision. I will create a video to demonstrate the differences between the two technologies. You can’t introduce a newer technology that is more inefficient than the old one. You should wait, improve it, and then implement it. I’m surprised no one has sued them in the United States for this.
This is also why YouTube has a new interface where it takes ten minutes to find what you used to identify instantly. It’s now difficult to find your own channels and modify their content. Zero usability, zero user-friendly design.
Perhaps Trump is right when he wants to preserve jobs in the United States for Americans. As I mentioned before, a mobile application developed by American programmers costs around $20,000, while the same application developed by low cost developers costs about $400. The difference lies in the quality of the code used, the final product, and the potential issues you may encounter. It’s like the difference between an expert who skillfully paints your walls using modern tools and someone who simply applies paint with a brush without knowing what they’re doing.
It’s probably because of their own mistakes that Google will eventually sink.
Now, getting back to YouTube, I previously mentioned that I opened several channels there to test monetization and see what works and what doesn’t. Some channels are public, while others are not.
One day, I received two emails on Gmail, similar to the one at the beginning of this article, informing me that two of my test channels had been closed.
One of these channels contained only one video: a compilation of a few car accidents. It included a few seconds from each accident, falling under the “YouTube Fair Use” category. No, this niche doesn’t generate revenue. With nearly 3,000 views from the US, UK, and other countries, it made only a few cents.
The second channel contains certain materials released by US authorities. While the first channel was promoted on LiveLeak through embedding, which brought in the views, the second channel was not promoted anywhere. However, the topics were very interesting and sought after by many people. Within minutes, the links were shared on forums and received dozens of shares on social media.
That’s how two of them ended up with over 20,000 views from the US, along with many comments, generating some good earnings.
By the way, if I write a very interesting article on my blog, nobody comments or shares it. On YouTube, Americans know how to appreciate the help provided and readily spread a good video.
I haven’t been actively managing these channels for some time now because there came a period when big companies withdrew their advertisements from YouTube due to being placed on videos they considered inappropriate. YouTube then started implementing various automatic restrictions.
The closure of a YouTube account is also automated. In other words, if you haven’t violated any YouTube rules, then nobody has complained about you because they have no reason to. Those “repeated policy violations” are just generic templates.
In my case, not only were there no “repeated violations,” but there were no violations whatsoever because I am very familiar with YouTube’s rules and adhere to them. As proof, both of my channels were reopened, and all restrictions were removed, receiving the following message:
What you need to do to reopen your YouTube channel
If your YouTube channel has also been closed (suspended) and you don’t have any copyright complaints, you can easily reopen it.
You need to provide to Google’s form your full name, the email address associated with the suspended YouTube account (I recommend using the same email address used during registration), the suspended channel’s address, and most importantly, the message explaining what happened.
The message is crucial and should be written politely and carefully in English. It should be something like: “Hello, I just found out that my YouTube channel has been suspended, and I believe this was done in error because I am fully aware of and have always adhered to YouTube’s rules. I kindly request you to review it and see that it fully complies with YouTube’s terms and conditions, and to lift the suspension and other restrictions. Thank you, Your Name.”
It takes anywhere from a few hours to a day for your YouTube channels to be unblocked. In my case, everything happened in about half a day.
That’s pretty much all you need to do to lift the suspension on your YouTube channel.
Google has been going a bit off track with these automatic restrictions, and this is not the first time.
I mentioned before that I opened a blog on Blogger where I wrote various things every day, and then I translated and posted them on other blogs as well. Google’s automatic system started closing one of my blogs every day after a few months. Then I would file a complaint, it would be reviewed by a human, and reopened, and so on, until I got bored and moved those articles here, deleting all the other blogs.
Not to mention the fact that I uploaded a video on the Cik.Ro YouTube channel, filmed by me, showing a robot defusing b0mbs, and just because I mentioned that word in the title, monetization was disabled. I filed a complaint, and monetization was restored after about two months. On another video that had the same restriction, it was lifted within a few hours. The difference lies in the number of views, with the other video having tens of thousands, while the one with the robot only had a few, so more popular videos have priority.
I hope this article is helpful in case you’ve experienced a similar situation.
