Just like facebook,.is YouTube also rejecting Seoclerks links?

Just like facebook,.is YouTube also rejecting Seoclerks links?I was doing my promotion of my seoclerks affiliate link to youtube so as to get more and more affiliates so as to get higher level, but i realized that i was getting some unknown error. i keep trying and trying but getting the same issue.
Now, is it that YouTube s now REJECTING seoclerks links just as Facebook? has anyone experience this issue or is the fault from my end.
if truly YouTube is now rejecting seoclerks, this is very bad and something needs to be done about it.
i will also like it if an seoclerks staff/admin/moderator can respond to this issue?.
Others can also respond as well.

chetaseo this is an old problem, SC was spammed so bad on FB that by affiliates that FB had to ban SC links or even seoclerks as a word on FB.
Don't know much on how flagged the SC link is on youtube but Lynne seems to have an idea on whats going on. Also I've notice you posted the link as seoclerks.com try promoting with the s at the end, seoclerk.com is basically the same website and as far as I know has become the main domain.

i don't think it has to do with the issues of ''s'' in the seoclerks word. though i have not tried it out, but i dont think that is the reason. but maybe as you have said, seoclerks link has been heavily spammed so much on YouTube too which may lead to the unknown error.

Hmmm! I just tried as a test to comment on Jkeyz video with my affiliate link and was getting the same "Unknown error" message. It would not let me. I tried just my SEOClerks profile link but still would not let me. I changed the link to my site link instead and it let me. So quite clearly something is going on here and looks like YouTube could be blocking SEOClerks domains.

Oh, I didn't try with seoclerk.com - that might work if anyone can confirm?

Also, there is sclrk.com as well. Not many people know about that domain. Just like facebook,.is YouTube also rejecting Seoclerks links?

You can try those instead. Replacing that domain for the seoclerks.com one.

However, this just goes to show, if YouTube are blocking the link from being posted in a comment (I'm not aware of if that includes in video descriptions too), but it just goes to show that there will be a reason for it and probably because people have been over spamming Youtube videos with spammy comments just to drop a link. Once again a class case of the minority ruining a good for the majority! I'm no saying you chetseo lol but that is what usually happens as that is what happened with Facebook as well. Although you can still use that short version on FB not many people know about that either. ;)

Anyway this will suck if that is the case. And if that is the case, then it shouldn't say "Unknown error". Youtube should just man up and not pretend it's an unknown error and just say "This domain is blocked" or something. At least we'd know for sure then what it was!

wow,. i never knew about that new domain that can stll open up seoclerks website. thanks for that. also good that you tested it yourself to see that it is not from me but from YouTube. if that is now the case, it is now becoming a serious issue that YouTube are also banning seoclerks links. very soon, twitter may follow suite. this is not good for this site at all. i just pray it doesnt extend to other social sites like twitter.

Hi Chetaseo. I am not sure if there is a problem on Youtube but I don't think so. I just checked my Youtube video and all is fine right now.

BUT that said about a week ago I was using a bitly link for my affiliate link and when I went to have a look the link was not showing correctly. I am not sure what went wrong but there was some error link. I then changed it to my raw affiliate link. So although everything is fine my side right now there was something odd going on.

You left your link in comments though, so perhaps your comment got marked as spam?

wow, you have really gone far, so good to see that you have uploaded a video on YouTube to get affiliates and create a good name for seoclerks. thumbs up and well done. i ams sure you must have gained some affiliates right?. now back to the main issue, i havent really invested in youtube, infact that was my 1st time of posting my raw affiliate link but suprise that its giving error. maybe i have to use my affiliate site link then, but god that your link was accepted without any error.

I have noticed for a long time that Seoclerks links where banned from Facebook but i didn't know about Youtube. Are you trying to make a new video with this link or is this an existing video? Lynne your video may be un affected if it was already up before this update. I just hope your experiencing a glitch and that this is not a real ban. It just seems like everyone is against us at this point and they are not leaving us with many options. I just checked my video and the link seems to still be on the description.

I am not trying to create any video, i am just trying to comment and put in my link. from the look of things, maybe it is allowed when creating a video but have issues when trying to input it in the comment section. still working on it though to see if it will still work much later.

Chetaseo, something you may need to look at is where you are putting your links. For example if you had to comment on my video that I created about SeoClerks and add your affiliate link in my comments I would certainly delete your comment and I may even mark it as spam!

Why don't you create your own video and put your link in there? Because that is the main difference I see between our links. Yours is in comments, mine is on my own video I created.

Thank you for the heads up! - I don't know if YouTube has blocked SEOClerks links or not, and I honestly speaking don't use YouTube to promote anything SEOClerks related at all. Not at the time I'm writing this, but I've actually had thoughts of launching a huge advertising campaign and focus on YouTube so this was a great topic. - That being said, I've used YouTube ages ago and I had no problems at all. I've also found several ways to often "bypass" blocked urls, by using url shorteners.

There's literally an ocean of shorteners out there, so just try several of them and see if that solves this problem. Also, feel free to update this topic or create a new one with more information whenever you can. I will too. Just like facebook,.is YouTube also rejecting Seoclerks links?

Thank you very much. i will try out the url shorteners to see if they will work it to solve this unknown error of a thing.

Yes, I just tried that and it's showing the same error. I'm not sure if it's true but from what I've heard Youtube is blocking many affiliate urls not only the SC domain. However, you can bypass that error pretty easy via short urls. I'm not sure if it was allowed to post it before, but since they're blocking it means that someone probably has spammed with his affiliate url on Youtube. But still it's not showing the real reason why it's being blocked, I'll keep eyes on it to see if something will change.

Exactly bro, i feel the use of url shorteners may need to be applied here to bypass such unknown errors. but i will also be tryig it out form time to time to see if it will accept it but if it doesnt, then it is confirmed to say that seoclerks links are not acceptable as they have traded the path of facebook. this isnt good for seoclerkes at al. i just hope twitter wouldnt follow suite.

I was not aware of it as I never tried posting it on YouTube. I did know about the Facebook blocking the link though. It is a pity that this occurs as a result of the spamming of some irresponsible people. However, you can try going around it in other ways, as some others suggested.

Chetaseo here is something interesting I have just picked up... it is not just SeoClerks and it is not just commenting on other peoples videos! I just tried to add a referral link in reply to a comment someone left on one of my own videos and Youtube would not accept it!

I had to leave a link to my other video which has the referral link in it. or to my blog post on my website.

So I think the rule here is you can leave a referral link in the video description of your own video but there must be some new update that affiliate links are not allowed in comments any more?
