It’s so important to block YouTube comments, especially if you’re ranking CPA videos.
Some people don’t bother but it can really help your conversion rates big time!
Do you want people losing faith after reading negative comments?
Do you want to have other people stealing your traffic by commenting their own links?
Of course not!
That wouldn’t be very smart, so let’s figure out a way to block all negative comments.
First Thing First
For this little tutorial we’re going to be using Community Settings found in the Creator Studio.
This setting can be found here exactly:
As I’ve already mentioned, lots of people dismiss these.
I really don’t understand why because surely you want your traffic to be convinced before even clicking on your link right?
That would be much better than someone checking it out after seeing multiple comments saying “not working” or worse.
This is really bad for your conversion rates. You’ll get less clicks to your website, and those who do click will be less likely to convert.
Let’s fix that!
Blocking Links In Comments
This one is super simple!
In the past you used to have to block terms like “http://” “www.” and “.com” etc to get rid of these.
However, since a while ago YouTube added a feature to block all links without having to add these filters yourself.
Just check the box and you’ve now blocked all those pesky linkers!
This will block all clickable links.
How To Block YouTube Comments
This will depend on what you consider bad comments.
For my purpose, I want to block all comments that say negative things about my video such as “fake” and “not working”.
I actually have a big list I compiled from over the years. It works well for me, if a comment slips by I add the phrase into my blacklist.
As you can see I have quite a few blocked words in my filter.
This will save me time in the future when moderating comments on my CPA videos.
I will make this whole list of phrases available to you for free.

How To Approve Blocked Comments
If for whatever reason you want to let a comment show just go to your Comment Manager and you can find them there.
Just hover over the comment and click on the little tick to approve it.
Just to let you know, some positive comments can and will be put into your moderation queue and you’ll need to approve them manually.
It’s still better to block YouTube comments like this and approve them later because allowing bad comments that often use the same phrase can be detrimental to your overall earnings.

This is exactly what I needed to make the comments section look a lot better. This just made things 10 times easier, thanks Jakub! I really wish I found out about this setting a lot sooner 🙂
