How to block links in YouTube comments as a creator?
As a YouTube creator, the last thing you want is to have to sift through endless spam comments or links on your videos. Luckily, YouTube has a feature that allows you to block links in comments. In this blog post, we'll take you through the steps of how to do it in a few simple clicks.
First off, open the YouTube app and log in as the creator of the video you want to manage comments for. Once you've done that, navigate to the comments section of the video by scrolling down beneath the video player.
Next, find the comment with a hashtag or URL that you want to block. Click on the three dots to the right of the comment, and select the "Block links" option. A screen will appear with options to block links or hashtags, or to send comments containing links or hashtags for review.
If you choose to block links or hashtags, any comments containing them will be hidden. However, if you select the "Hold for review" option, you'll be able to manually approve or deny comments containing links or hashtags before they are shown publicly.
It's important to note that this feature only applies to comments containing links or hashtags - you'll still need to manually moderate any spam or inappropriate comments that don't contain them.
If you want to manage comments for all of your videos, you'll need to repeat this process for each one individually. However, once you've done it once, it's a quick and easy process to manage comments for your videos going forward.
In conclusion, the ability to block links in YouTube comments is a great way to keep your comment section free of spam and inappropriate content. By following the steps outlined above, you'll be able to easily manage comments on your videos and ensure a positive viewing experience for your audience.No answer to your question? ASK IN FORUM.
