    I just spent the last few hours browsing video sites to see which still offer backlinks. I've only found Youtube.

    Metacafe, Vimeo, Veoh, 4shared, etc all seem to no longer allow backlinks in their descriptions.

    Am I missing something?

    What sites are you using for video backlinks? I don't care about traffic, only raising the main site in the search engines.

    Vimeo does allow a hyperlink if I am not wrong. I have seen videos having a clickable link in the description. Just get contextual links and embed your videos if you want to get ranked higher in search engine. That's what is working for me so far

    Vimeo allows naked urls, with the others you can only have links in your profiles

    Vimeo does allow hyperlinking from the User profile box. My mistake.

    @ OP have a look at this video vimeo.com/62353117

    You can get links from description not only from user profile box

    Strange. How is that person making a link in their description?

    Anywho, I read Vimeo's terms and conditions. For my purposes, the videos must be a Pro account and would not be hosted on Vimeo.com.
