How to get Google to remove links from YouTube
Posted On July 26, 2021
You can’t just put links to your website in your YouTube videos without paying for them.
The company has made it very clear that you’re supposed to pay for any YouTube videos you embed, including videos that you have no control over, which means that even if you embed a link to a blog or other site that you own, Google will take it down.
You can make your own videos, of course, but Google also makes it very easy for you to take them down.
That’s because Google doesn’t have any tools for takedowns, and so a YouTube video is effectively a free advertisement.
That means you can use a tool like adblockers to block the YouTube embeds.
This isn’t just a matter of copyright law, though.
Adblockers like Adblock Plus have also helped make YouTube a safe space for people to share content.
Google’s stance has been that embedding links is a good way to get around the rules of copyright, but they also know that YouTube users aren’t going to be very happy if they’re seeing links to content they don’t own.
This means that if you want to do away with links in YouTube videos, it’s best to use a legitimate tool to take down links.
