YouTube's New Strike System, Google's Search Console Changes, & Twitter Teases a "Clarification" Tool...This Is THE LATEST!
I have a dark past.
I don't tell many people about it, but it kept me tucked away in a dimly lit room whenever I wasn't in school and very few knew what was going on.
I, my friend -- was an internet fan girl. Ok, perhaps that wasn't the big bad secret you were expecting, but it was a nerdy part of my past I am reluctant to tell most people. (I guess we're on that level now ❤️).
As a pre-teen, I ran a very popular website, forum, and YouTube channel dedicated to an Indian actor that was a bit of an underdog at the time. I had an active online community, reported news, and delivered original, exclusive content long before it all became known as inbound marketing -- but I also got myself into some hot water.
Many moons ago, I uploaded the trailer of a much-delayed movie featuring my favorite actor to my website's YouTube channel that I recorded from a Bollywood movie talk show that aired here in the U.S. It got hundreds of thousands of views from people all over the world, unfortunately including the film's producers.
Long story short, I got a notice from YouTube and my channel was shut down taking all my hard-earned followers with it. I then slowly began to put this chapter behind me, but it's still left me thinking if only YouTube was as clear about their strike system back then as they are now...
