It has effected 100o’s of YouTube videos and closed down accounts from top industry leaders.
This is a tragic loss for YouTube. Millions of views gone in the blink of an eye because of someone vindictiveness.
The real pisser is that this was targeted. Someone who was unhappy with their lot in life decided to target keywords and leaders. In doing so it affected thousands of YouTube video creators.
Channels were destroyed because someone had a developer create a bot to run a muck through YouTube and flag videos that contained specific keywords.
I, personally know many internet marketers that were affected. Leaders that had channels that provided nothing but education and training. Gone FOREVER.
I wasn’t un-touched. On two different channels I got flagged on 7 different videos. To take action to protect myself I had to remove all my videos from public viewing. This hurts many who are looking for some education and training.
I am not sure to long term outcome of this… but the short term kinda sucks.
Surviving the YouTube Epic Fail
But I am always one to bounce back. In reality this tragic loss didn’t hurt my business at all. I continue to generate leads and build my business.
As many online marketers learned, it is not wise to have all your eggs in one basket. It is best to use different strategies for building your business.
One of the points that keeps getting drilled home is content creation… and my favorite Blogging!
Last night I was asked to chat with a group of online marketers and home based business and share why blogging is so powerful.
I invite you to watch this training… it will surprise many of you.
One of the key points that I make about blogging is that it’s YOUR ONLINE REAL ESTATE.
It’s the one platform you own and because of that, you can become a little bullet proof. You don’t face the downside of being blocked, banned, kicked off, or deleted.
Can I be honest with you for a moment?
You are not completely bullet proof with anything you do online. Hackers, Haters, and Updates will always exist. You never know where it will come from but it is better to be diverse than depend on just one traffic source.
As with many social platforms… that are free. you are subjected to their rules. Owning your own blog… your terms, your business.
This YouTube Epic Fail is no more than a bump in the road for online marketers that understand that having a blog is your home base.
Where Else to Host Video?
There are plenty of other sites that you can use to host your videos. Some free and some paid. You have already seen what happens to free…
- Daily Motion
- any many more
Will YouTube recover from this blunder that it made. I honestly don’t know. Could if force a loss of viewers and trust with Google? Who knows….
At the end of the day are you willing to learn how to create and build a blog that you can use for your business?
Take action and get your hands on Blogging Ingredients. Take control of your marketing future.
