Baton Rouge Real Estate Agent Tips For NOT Having Your YouTube Channel Terminated or Suspended! YouTube is owned by Google and knows the normal pulse of your Real Estate Channel and can recognize unsual activity on it.
I received an email this morning about YouTube terminating or suspending accounts in past 6 months and especially in the last 2 weeks. Here’s the tips and warnings:
FIRST, if Youtube asks you if you would like to “earn revenue” from your Videos-do not do it because it increases your channel scrutiny Big Time!
Example of one YouTube offering potential revenue from your video content:
SECOND, Do not USE any copyrighted material whatsoever. Youtube is SMART and they are watching this very closely. If creating videos yourself, be sure to “buy” the music you’re using. More reputable sources include: iMovie’s Library of Royalty Free Music, Pond5.com and Audiojungle.net .
SAME THING with using copyrighted images in the videos you create. Either use your own real estate photos you take or buy the images you use and retain those records in case you need to prove purchase ownership. NEVER do a google search and just grab an image for your video or your blog….according to what I’m reading, that could get you in serious legal copyright trouble and your YouTube account terminated.

THIRD, Avoid any inappropriate content! Enough Said.

FOURTH, No FAKE, ROBOTIC or automatic views/comments/likes that are not real or organic. Stop “Buying” views and likes and lay off of tube promoter for the views and comments. Make everything about your YT Channel be as organic as possible. YouTube is smart enough to know when your videos and channel are receiving usual channel and views activity.
