How do i handle notice of TOS violation from YouTube

I got this notice from YouTube that I violated their terms of service.

This following video was found in Violation of TOU #4 Section H:Finding Your Passion - And Building a Lifestyle Friendly Business Around It
“You agree not to use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, “robots,” “spiders,” or “offline readers,” that accesses the Service in a manner that sends more request messages to the YouTube servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a conventional on-line web browser. Notwithstanding the foregoing, YouTube grants the operators of public search engines permission to use spiders to copy materials from the site for the sole purpose of and solely to the extent necessary for creating publicly available searchable indices of the materials, but not caches or archives of such materials. YouTube reserves the right to revoke these exceptions either generally or in specific cases. You agree not to collect or harvest any personally identifiable information, including account names, from the Service, nor to use the communication systems provided by the Service (e.g., comments, email) for any commercial solicitation purposes. You agree not to solicit, for commercial purposes, any users of the Service with respect to their Content.”
Violation of the policy above has resulted in the removal and reupload of your video(s). Additional account violations of Terms of Use #4 Section H will result in account suspension. Many users trust outside marketers who claim to increase views, subscribers, likes, etc., but each user is ultimately responsible for the activity on his or her account, as well as for knowing and abiding by YouTube’s Terms of Use. This includes understanding the nature of the traffic on his or her channel and making sure any hired service providers comply with YouTube’s Terms of Use.

Please note that deleting the video(s) will not resolve the Terms of Use violation and it will prevent YouTube from reinstating the video(s), even if the appeal(s) would otherwise have been successful. You may also reupload the removed video(s) providing you do not violate YouTube’s Terms of Use.
As a courtesy, we have reuploaded your video(s) here:

Please note that the video exists at a new URL. Please also note that all previous views, likes, and comments have been removed.

I figured this relates to the activities of an SEO provider I hired from
I sent him the violation notice, and he responded by saying:

“Hello, This did not happen because of views or backlinks. Video has been terminated due content. This means that someone has reported your video to the content of your video is not right. if you are sure that everything is OK, send a message on YouTube. Thanks by”

I sent this off to YouTube explaining that I use best marketing practices, etc. They said they would not get back to me unless they have more question. But I have some. My questions are:

  1. Should I really believe boskopikica that the violation did not happen because of his work?
  2. I am able to access the video now at
    but this is not on my own channel, and I can’t open the “share” link to be able to post this video on my blog again. Why not?
  3. Should I re-upload this video to my channel?
  4. If I can’t trust my existing SEO guy, can you recommend reliable ones for video SEO that will not get me into this kind of hot water?

I’ll appreciate any help on how do deal with any of the above.

I don’t get how a video could be guilty of such activity.

Unless a video file can run spidering code there’s a mix up somewhere.

My guess is
Either the video had bad content and the citation is wrong
Or a bot script was hitting that page too fast too often

Yes. That’s my guess too.
