Following the same dynamic as other platforms, YouTube has begun to eliminate accounts in order to eradicate spam.
As announced by the YouTube team, they are conducting an audit process, verifying the legitimacy of the accounts and the activity of the channels, in order to eliminate spam and the practice of winning subscribers by artificial means. So, many channels will see that the number of followers can decrease considerably, and in some cases, no longer apply to participate in the YouTube partner program.
This can occur because the creators have used third-party services to acquire subscribers, or because they use practices such as the so-called sub4sub , which proposes that users subscribe to their channels reciprocally. Or, they are simply victims of the circle of spam accounts, who subscribe to different channels to go unnoticed.
Those creators who are affected by the process that YouTube will develop, will see a banner in YouTube Studio, alerting of the situation, specifying the cause of the drop in the number of subscribers. And, in case you no longer have certain privileges, for example, participation in YYP, for losing the number of followers stimulated, you will have to reapply, to evaluate your channel again.
The YouTube team ensures that it has advanced technology to accurately identify those accounts that are spam subscribers.
