I’m doing SEO and Media Buying, but also I’m creating and promoting my Youtube channels. And recently some of my channels was blocked. So I decide collect together all reasons of blocking Youtube channel.[toc_short]
Main list of rules of Youtube is “Community Guidelines”.
Breaking this guidelines leads to getting strikes to your channel.
Community Guidelines strikes are issued when their reviewers are notified of a policy violation of the rules for how to behave on YouTube, or the Community Guidelines.
Depending of the severity of the violation your channel may be block for 1 strike or some strikes during half of year.
Reasons for channel block
