But not many people were reporting them for their content because unless and until it’s upon us we didn’t take any action.

Now, after you had reported a youtube video then it’s not directly removed from the channel, earlier youtube tends to remove the video directly from the channel but now youtube analyze the content and after reviewing that video which you had reported if they find anything that violates youtube guidelines then the video will be taken down.

A YouTube channel named “one viral only ” which was launched just 2 weeks ago is spreading fake news in a convincing way and getting a lot of views. How can this channel be reported and banned?

Channel one viral only is a type of news channel in which a person had recorded a simple video of a village and then done voice-over but what I have noticed is that they had made some viral videos earlier which tend to viral and that’s the reason why they had 258k subscribers.

But now after they started uploading voice-over videos which were very simple not many people were watching them and they had deleted their viral videos but if they make this type of simple video then if you report it nothing will happen.

Because now they were not making that type of videos which they were making earlier.

How many reports does it take to ban a YouTube channel?

It doesn’t matter how many people report the youtube channel or its videos unless and until that video isn’t violating youtube community guidelines.

But somewhere if soo many people were reporting a single video then youtube check it very strictly.


So, this is all about How to report a Youtube channel if it is continuously spreading fake news?
