How To Moderate YouTube Spam Comments Automatically Using Artific…


Artificial Intelligence is here, and many companies are offering it to us to improve our work flows.

Earlier, I talked about the web app (also iOS app), SmartModeration, which automatically tackles spam comments on Instagram and Facebook (check out my review here). I’ve been using it for almost a year to tackle the spam comments on ShoutMeLoud’s Instagram and Facebook pages.

The big news: The same AI technology can now help us combat spam comments on YouTube.

Recently, SmartModeration has integrated with YouTube, so you no longer have to worry about moderating and tackling spam comments on your videos. If you are a YouTube channel owner or a YouTube influencer, this new integration is going to be so valuable for you.

How To Tackle YouTube Spam Comments Automatically Using Artificial Intelligence

If you have never used SmartModeration before, go ahead and sign up right now. They offer a 3 day-free trial which is good enough to tackle spam comments for all of your existing updates on Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook.

In this tutorial, I’m sharing how to use their new YouTube integration.

  • Log in to your SmartModeration account.
  • Click on the Page Management tab (Direct link).

  • Click on Add New Channel.
  • Give access to your YouTube channel.
  • Repeat the process if you have more than one YouTube channel.

Once you have allowed access, it will take a few minutes to scan your existing published and pending YouTube comments.

You should give an hour or so to let the SmartModeration bot to do its magic.

When done, you can use the tabs to quickly find ‘inappropriate’ and ‘automatically hidden spam comments’.

Well, now you’re all set. You can start using their web app or their mobile app to moderate your YouTube comments.

What if you have a new or moderately popular YouTube channel?

Here is the thing, not everyone needs SmartModeration to moderate YouTube comments. If you have a well-established and active YouTube channel, SmartModeration is definitely a good choice.

But if you are someone who gets a limited amount of comments, then you don’t need SmartModeration. You can manually moderate comments by configuring the settings.

Here is how you do that:

  • Go to the YouTube community settings by clicking here.

Here you can configure settings to manually review all comments.

This definitely increases the time by which new comments will appear on your newly publishes posts, but you won’t have to pay for SmartModeration.

For new and medium traffic YouTubers, you can use the YouTube Creator Studio app (Android | iOS) on your smartphone to moderate comments.

However, once you reach the stage where your time is money, and you are getting a lot of comments, using an AI tool like SmartModeration can significantly improve your work flow.
