In summary, a youtuber named Roel Van de Paar has been spamming video uploads using a program, completely flooding the search by upload stream. This has resulted in numerous videos with pseudo-content and clickbait titles, all linked together. The uploader has been reported twice to YouTube with no action taken. The uploader's goal is to gain more views and make money, while YouTube is slow to address the issue.

There is a youtuber named Roel Van de Paar who is using some program in order to spam video uploads and it is completely flooding the search by upload stream. Minute by minute this jerk keeps uploading tech vids with pseudo-content. I have actually never seen anything like that. I have reported him twice to youtube to no avail. I wish youtube would make him stop.

Look at how many videos are in each of these playlists. What an jerk. These are just the tip of the iceberg. I don't see how youtube hasn't stopped him from doing this yet.

I've heard of hundreds of clickbait videos, all mutually linked.

Do they show ads in the videos? Youtube makes money from those.

That's the idea, this way he gets more views and makes some extra money. Yes, that's nasty, yes, YT should do something about it, yes, YT - as every other corporate run huge internet site - is very sluggish in doing so, unless directly threaten by legal actions.

Please disperse, there is nothing to see here.

Why? It's their site, they can do whatever they want. On the other hand, you don't have to visit their site ... especially if you find it has poor quality content.
