    Hello BlackHatters!! What's up??

    I'm backlinking some YT vids and some blog posts..

    Now in the description of my YT vids I have a link to my blog post with the same keyword..

    I was planning on backlinking both the blog post and YT vid with the same keyword SEPARATELY with SEPARATE backlink campaigns..

    Now my question is - as the YT vid is tier 1 - should I not even bother backlinking the blog post (money site) because all the link juice will flow to that anyway??

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    I'm pretty sure that YouTube no-follows their links so you won't be passing link juice to your blog post anyway.

    Are you backlinking to your video purely because its tier 1, or do you actually want to rank the video for something?

    I would have backlinking going to both the blog post and the youtube video (but only to the video if I wanted it to rank)

    Hey thanks man. That's exactly what I wanted to know. Yeah I want to rank both the video and the blog post so as I thought I will need to backlink both.

    Thanks for your response!
