According to YouTube, this should lessen the number of abusive comments on the site while also increasing transparency in the process to help people understand how they’ve broken the law and possibly influence their behavior in the future.

Similar to this, YouTube is also extending its trial of timestamps in publisher-facing Community Guidelines policy violation notifications, which offer more precise information on the precise time a violation occurred in video clips.

YouTube is now adding violations related to “Child Safety,” “Suicide and Self-Harm,” and “Violent or Graphic” to these notifiers, which were previously only available for violations of its “Harmful and Dangerous” policy.

In order to connect users to more videos on the same subject, YouTube will therefore work to highlight more pertinent hashtags in video clips.

This might place a greater emphasis on hashtag use consequently, it might be time to update your hashtag research strategy to reflect the most recent trending topics.

Although each of these updates is relatively minor, it’s important to take into account how they might affect your YouTube strategy.
