Backlinks are very useful and trusted way for generating traffic to your site. And if that backlink comes from the site like YouTube which is the most visited site in the world then each video backlink will fetch a quality backlink. As YouTube is a part of Google so any backlink from YouTube carries plenty of weight, and this backlink will improve the ranking of your website in Google and other search engines.
Here in this article, we will discuss how to get direct back links from YouTube by putting little more efforts and doing some tricks.
1. Video Description:
YouTube or Google can’t watch or listen the videos which are submitted in YouTube channels. They mainly indexed the text which is posted along with the video as the video description. YouTube heavily depends upon the video description. Video description for a video should include clickable links to the site. Always remember to add http// before the link to make it clickable, and Google can crawl it easily.
2. Comment on Other Videos:
Comment on someone else’s video on YouTube. This will give you a backlink to your website. It is just like blog commenting so make sure that comment should be regarding the video, not a general remark.
But don’t enrich your comment so much with keywords and provide valid links. Because if YouTube comes across your content and find it spammy with your links, then you are likely to have your comment deleted.
3. YouTube Channel Profile Links:
Another way of generating video backlink is your profile in YouTube. These profiles have a section that can be used either for creating links or adding links to your profile. This is another way of generating a backlink to your website and get one quality backlink to your site.
4. CTA Button can be Another Useful Tool:
Don’t forget to add a call to action button at the end of the video. Call to action button can be used for generating backlinks. Your call to action can be used as contact us, downloading an ebook or sharing on social media channel. All these activities from the viewers end will lead to bring about the backlinks and increase the conversion rate.
5. Share the video on social media platform:
- Share the video on Goggle Plus
- Share on company’s Facebook page, like it, share it on a group
- You can also use company’s Twitter account for posting video
- Retweet on your account
These are the some most commonly used strategies by the marketer to gain backlinks for a website and increase views for the video. No matter how many backlinks are generated, but don’t get penalized as a spammer because then many of your links will be useless and ignored by the search engine.
Finally, you need to check those backlinks from time to time and see how they are performing and what they are worth.
