YouTube backlinking strategy is not something new to the marketing world. You must have read many notes by expert gurus who give much detailed and yes sometimes much appropriate step by step guides to achieve great results. They are easier to read but much hard to follow. Sometimes they require expertise that only people who have spent years and years in this internet marketing industry only can understand. While some require services or software which needs lots of moolah to be spent.
Today we will be discussing something of an unusual format. The only single line tweak which can be the boss of all those so-called YouTube backlinking strategies that are discussed around.
So, now that you have published a new video on YouTube, you have automatically triggered the panic button mode in your mind and all you are doing right now is trying to promote your video in every possible way. Friends, family, social media, forums, Softwares, just to name a few.
Submitting your video URL to different platforms in itself means you are backlinking your video through the other sites on the web. So the only answer to all your promotion needs is getting trunk loads of:
Backlinks, backlinks, backlinks!
So, in short, all you are doing now is running after backlinks. Joining lots of sites, confirming your subscriptions, understanding their rules, all most importantly following them unfailingly.
Or perhaps, you are thinking of hiring freelancers to do the same or trying to use some pathetic software to achieve some results.
Don’t run behind success. Achieve excellence. Eventually, success will come running behind you.
But what if I say you that instead of you running for backlinks, I can help you get loads of backlinks running after your YouTube videos?
YouTube Backlinking Strategy (The Ultimate Description Tweak):
First things first, as soon as you publish your video, you will be given a short link to your youtube video. Click on that link and go to your main player section. There you will notice the full link or URL to your video. This looks something like:
Copy and paste this link somewhere in your clipboard or notepad.
Now remove the “s” from “https”, that means we don’t want a secure URL. Because most apps and Softwares are not able to build links on a secure connection, so we will just be needing just “http” instead of “https”.
That means, now your URL should look something like:
Now go to your video description page of the same video and paste your link there, at the end of the description. Click save and you are done!
Congo, people! Now you have a big fleet of sites and apps linking back to your video. But wait, this will not make you famous overnight or throng your video with monstrous views and subscribers. It’s just a kind of YouTube backlinking technique. This is not a compulsory tactic but really helpful.
Now another question arises, HOW ON EARTH CAN THIS TECHNIQUE HELP US BUILD BACKLINKS???
So the answer to that will be … there are many sites and Softwares out there who capture your video as soon as you publish it and store it in their system. For example if you publish a video compilation of cute kittens, then there are millions of viral sites like Viral Nova, BuzzFeed, UpWorthy, etc which capture such videos depending on the keyword or description they require and show such hilarious videos to their subscribers and audience with a different title and description which is capable of capturing audience attention. So those sites and Softwares embed your video automatically in their site or system without you even knowing it. Don’t worry it’s totally legal to embed anybody’s video on your own site unless the person ( the creator of video) has themselves restricted to embed it or use it somewhere else. Here’s where our YouTube backlinking strategy crops in.
Ran out of blog post ideas? Try embedding this video on your blog and let your audience enjoy it!
But embedding happens in IFRAME, that means the site or software that is playing your video is only pulling your video content directly through YouTube and actually not linking back to it. This is where our strategy works. When other sites and Softwares catch our videos, they even capture our description, so when we insert our video URL into the description, we are ensuring that our URL gets a proper backlink and the SEO juice for eventual traffic and link building and henceforth a good page rank.
And yes, again it should be “http” and not “https” because most sites and Softwares cannot pull content when a link is in a secured format and they may ignore your video even if it has the capability to go viral. So make sure your URL is in a plain format and not secured before inserting it at the end of your description.
So you are now all prepped up to get unlimited YouTube backlinks even while you are sleeping without even having to do any amount of work.
That was all for YouTube backlinking strategy, folks! We will soon be coming up with more cool stuff like this until then, stay subscribed!
