    As far as I know youtube is no follow. (correct me if I'm wrong) Still good to put the link in though to get visitors. I definitely see no disadvantage if you did put it in there.

    No, but you can get your YouTube traffic to go to your website that way (assuming you have any YouTube traffic).

    All the links from YouTube. So you can't improve your ranking through YouTube link. But you can use YouTube for increasing traffic on your site. It will help you to increase your traffic.

    YouTube is really a good source of traffic not for building links.

    Before you could get follow links from the main link in your channel, as well as annotation links. There's probably some way to get some link juice, but I'm not sure how much really.

    I don't think there is much link love being passed from youtube, but when I do SEO, I do it to gain actual visitors in addition to rankings, so youtube can definitely help pull in some traffic assuming you have decent videos or a lot of channels and vids.

    The links from YT are nofollow, but from my experience they do boost your website's ranking in G. Perhapts it has something to do with G owning YT.

    YouTube is No Follow, but it will increase your targeted traffic. And targeted traffic always good for all.

    There are many factors affecting your ranking and one of them is traffic. It will surely help to get some people flowing to your website via google.

    May be a little positive movement through citations/no-follows but don't count on it.
