Click Bombing YouTube Publishers To Get Them Banned

Jan 7, 2011 • 6:10 am | comments (8) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google AdSense

A YouTube Help thread reports of YouTube aggressively banning YouTube accounts of publishers due to abuse.

A month ago, we reported on a bug where YouTube was terminating accounts by accident but this still appears to be happening and not by mistake.

It seems like some of those who are part of the YouTube partner program are having their YouTube accounts banned at an even rapid pace.

A YouTube Help dating back to November, but still with a full head of steam, has reports from publishers that they are being banned due to being click bombed or not to any fault of their own.

With this, like always, it is hard to pin point if this is a Google bug, a competitor trying to hurt someone or just someone who is trying to take advantage and complains after they get caught. But there is a large number of YouTube partners who are not happy now.
