How do spammers find you on YouTube I seem to be getting a lot. The worst thing is I have limited features to stop them as I’m using mobile versions. How do you pick a spammer and what can I do given previous info. I’m feeling like I’ve been targeted atm. I’m wondering as it seems there are more than one channel with same name. One has a huge amount of subs and other has hardly any. This is really stressing me out. Is this just something you need to get use to

You can filter your comments so you approve each one. I have that set up & it shows me comments that are able to be approved and ones that are likely spam. I’ve had my channel for over 5 years and still get a handful of spammers.

Find the keywords like "check out my channel" or "sub4sub" etc. and add it to your blocked words. It'll filter out those comments and you can choose to either approve or delete it.

Every time I see a person who wants to do "hug2hug" (in reality, it's Sub2Sub which is another term from S4S), I instantly delete it.

I had numerous requests for sub2sub especially during live streams. I tend to delete the comment and block the user

I agree with Ikerot, use the word filter list. YouTube will set aside filtered comments for manual approval, or deletion. I got a list from someone, that contains hundreds of words (mostly dirty), you can easily add words, like sub4sub, to the list.

I actually tried sub4sub method before which made me stressed because in reality lots of them are not watching that's why some comments is in spam . I have lots of spammers and then I started to block words and I stop that method because I think it's not worth it . And I knew they're not watching because when I check the watch hours there's no additional. There is also one to three spammers with lots of subscribers that I knew after I watched a video which I found them also in my channel with a very lovely comments. After I knew theyre spammers then I just ignored specially when I upload a new vid they pop up so quick. It's better to ignore them or block some words on your settings.
