In 2017 many YouTuber are getting their YouTube account suspended for no reason even I was also a victim as my 2 fast growing channels (one month old) were terminated without any reason and prior notice. This was a strange moment for me as I never violated any YouTube policy and did spam.
Before one day I made $25 and next morning I got a message
This account has been suspended due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s policy against spam, gaming, misleading content or other Terms of Service violations.
Generally why YouTube account are suspended?
When any YouTube user breaks any rule, YouTube sends the user with warning strikes which can be expired within three or six months. After this time, the YouTube platform again reviews the standing of the account. It also leads to permanent account termination if the user made any violations additional to the previous.
But in my case one channel was having 2 copyright strikes and another was having none. So I was little confused for my second YouTube channel as it was suspended for no reason and I wanted to recover suspended YouTube channel.
How I got 2 copyright strikes? Strange
Generally when we upload someone else video our channel gets a copyright strike but in my case it was different. I uploaded two creative common videos and to my surprise after they gone viral the original creator claimed them and YouTube sent me 2 copyright strikes which were to expire after 3 months.
Now I stopped using creative common videos.
What happen after YouTube channel get suspended?
If your YouTube channel gets suspended, the platform will not display your videos to the audience and even you can no longer see the videos. So I would suggest you storing your videos which can be helpful during the situations if they arrive.
How I recover suspended YouTube account?
As on my first YouTube channel which was having 2 copyright strikes I just appealed through YouTube termination appeal form. I thought it might have received third copyright strike so it is suspended but YouTube was displaying the termination appeal form so I filled the appeal form carefully and submitted it. That’s all.
Now as my another YouTube channel I was little worried as it was in good standing and it started getting 200 subscribers/day. I searched on Google and YouTube for following queries:
- How to recover suspended YouTube account?
- How long it takes recover back suspended YouTube account?
- Why YouTube suspended my channel without any reason?
- How to reopen suspended YouTube channel?
But the problem was all were directing to appeal through termination appeal form. After researching more I got an email id firstname.lastname@example.org, so I sent an email on this id and got a reply.
I think that my channel should have not been terminated because I have
followed the YouTube community guidelines very carefully, can you
please check my channel again to see, if people have wrongly flagged
I worked day and night for one month to grab 1678 subscribers and now
I am helpless.

Now after I was happy to know that my channel is not flagged because of copyright issues.
Now I moved to termination appeal form, if your channel is temporarily disabled then appeal only if you are sure that your account didn’t cross any violations.
I filled the appealed carefully and briefly explained why I think my channel was suspended in error like below:
I think that my channel should have not been terminated because I have followed the YouTube community guidelines very carefully, can you please check my channel again to see, if people have wrongly flagged my videos.
After 3 days I got the below unfortunate reply:
Thank you for your account suspension appeal. We have decided to keep your account suspended based on our community Guidelines and Terms of Service.
No issues again I filled the form and with the below explanation:
Can you please check my channel again to see, if people have wrongly flagged my videos. I always respect and care for my subscriber and YouTube’s users. Please review my channel and it’s requested to reactivate again.
And this time I got the following reply from YouTube, I got this email at night:
We have re-reviewed the circumstances of your suspension and have concluded it is appropriate to reinstate your account. This means your account is once again active and operational.

So this way I was able to recover suspended YouTube account. This took around 15 days as they reply very late.
And on the same morning I got an email for my first channel too with above beautiful message.
So dear friends finally I recovered my YouTube channels using terminate appeal form but there is also another method (directly sending them email) using which you can get back your suspended YouTube channel within a week, I will discuss this on my next post.
And suspension of any YouTube channel is not a big issue if you follow the rule carefully as YouTube and the Google platform generally uses some automated methods of detecting the flagged videos. So, there are chances to have errors.
Sometimes your video may also flag by competitors or by some unsuspected persons. So, there is nothing to worry if you are sure that you hadn’t violated any rules. But be patient until your account was reviewed after your appeal to the YouTube. So, that in this way you can get back to your YouTube channel.
In the description section of appeal form please briefly explain why you think your channel was suspended in error, it matters a lot.
