Are you still there in the Google Search results?
Is your channel still active?
Is your Google + account still alive?
Is your feeds still working at Feedburner?
Is your Adsense accounts still working?
If you think I have gone nuts, then part of it is true. Have you ever had to face a situation where you are punished without even knowing why you were?
I just went through one such situation. Thank to the Google Gods.
Actually we are alive because of the Google Gods and they have all the right in the world to punish us, banish us and destroy us without giving us a reason.
My 3 year old Youtube channel just went blank. It was terminated by Google without giving me a reason. The only reason I got was a generic email telling me that one or, more of my videos violated Google Community guidelines or, terms.
This channel has been active for more than 3 years now and I had more than 100 videos on it. All my hard work. Videos that I created spending hours at my computer. I had read and read the Google terms again and again just to make sure I followed everything to the core. Yet I missed or, so I am made to believe.
Though I had the utmost confidence that none of my videos violated any of these terms, I still have to live with the belief that I actually did. Just because Google believes only in communicating with us, “ONLY IF THEY THINK IT IS NECESSARY”.
If you are yet to see monopoly, then this is what it is.
A one line advice to all you hard working internet marketers. Just ensure you have a backup copy of everything and be prepared to build everything from scratch because you can get banned anyday.
After all that is what we have seen with the Penguin and the Panda updates, Isn’t it?
