How did your video get uploaded on Youtube by others? Is it possible to delete it?

With over two billion monthly users, YouTube has cemented its place in our daily lives.

On Youtube, anyone is allowed to upload videos. It is a Google-owned online video sharing and social media platform, as we all know. To do this, you’ll need to create a Google account if you don’t already have one. You may access YouTube, Google My Business, Gmail, and any other YouTube platform with your Google account.

Unfortunately, YouTube’s platform is regularly used to cause severe, repetitive damage to an individual or business. After all, it’s just as easy to share a damaging video as it is to post a harmless and entertaining one.

The common situation where other people would upload video relates to a person. 

Many commercial, informative, and humorous videos have been uploaded to Youtube since submitting a video is a simple action for the general public. Furthermore, YouTube’s massive growth in traffic created its own set of issues. A recording of a road accident, a misunderstanding, a person’s misbehaviour or inappropriate action while riding on the subway, or perhaps an outdated video such as their 10-year-old singing competition video are all examples of scenarios where other people would upload the video related to a person.

How can these videos affect individuals or businesses?

Businesses and individuals use YouTube for a variety of purposes, including sharing videos with friends and family. Many businesses use YouTube to launch or promote products, promote their brand, monitor customer feedback, and provide customer service. YouTube videos will display on both Google and YouTube search engines; it is a popular video-sharing website available to the public. Their videos will appear on Youtube and Google when their name or company name is searched.

Anyone with internet access can see the video relating to you or your firm, and it may also appear as a suggested video. As a result, individuals and businesses may wish to delete Youtube videos uploaded by others because they may contain false or damaging content that harms their online reputation.

Why Google may or may not index the video on search results?

YouTube videos occasionally contain embarrassing, damaging, or defamatory content about individuals and businesses. You might wonder why this is happening, especially since the YouTube link containing the negative YouTube video ranks higher than other well-known web domains. There are 3 major factors for this:

  1. Engagement: In 2021, engagement will be the most important search ranking factor for YouTube content. In general, the more views, clicks, likes, and other interactions a YouTube video receives, the higher it will display in Google search results.
  2. Domain Authority: Every website on the internet is given a certain “domain authority” level by Google. The higher the website’s domain authority, the higher it will appear in search results. YouTube videos frequently occur at the top of search results because it is one of the most influential websites on the internet. Furthermore, Google has changed its search results to prioritize video content, amplifying the impact of potentially damaging or embarrassing YouTube videos.
  3. Insufficient video content: If you haven’t uploaded any YouTube videos related to your name or business, it will be much easier for other people’s videos to rank higher in Google search results.
