I wrote the blog article for yesterday on the morning of the 24th. Around 6 AM is when I got the email from YouTube, saying they manually reviewed my Nancy Drew video and okayed it as appropriate for all advertisers.
Well, it's the evening of the 24th. Guess what? YouTube reversed its decision at some point during the day. It's back to being flagged as "inappropriate".
The awful part, as you can see, is that I can't appeal or protest this decision. They've already done a manual review of the video. I just have to hope it's a glitch in their system which gets corrected.
Something similar has happened before, with these "flagged as inappropriate content" videos. I've had a video get marked as inappropriate, and a few days later, it gets unmarked as inappropriate, even though I did nothing at all. Still, I would repeat what I said yesterday: it is not good when this happens during the first week of a video's life, the week where a video gets the most views. Why does this have to happen when a video is at its peak point for ads?
