Metadata refers to additional information provided on a video. This includes the title, description, tags, and thumbnail. Metadata provides additional contextual information to your videos and optimizes your video's visibility in search. Metadata should be representative of the content contained in your video. Using misleading metadata to trick algorithms can lead to the removal of your video and/or your account termination.
Also, make sure to select a thumbnail that best represents your content. Selecting an inappropriate thumbnail could result in the removal of your thumbnail or video.
We do not allow users to upload spam—large amounts of untargeted, unwanted, or repetitive videos or comments. Any such pratice can lead to your account termination without prior notice.
