    I have a couple questions about youtube video links.

    1. Are links in video descriptions do-follow?

    2. Do you see any significant traffic increase from the links?

    3. Have you ever bought a link on a popular youtube video? If so how much did you pay and how did you negotiate?

    Unless it is very closely related to the video then I would think the $$ would be more effective used elsewhere. What are you trying to promote and what type of videos are you looking at? Lots of variables also...what if the video is removed. Lots of the "popular" videos are watched by kids...again the demo is important. Post some details about the kind of offer you are looking to promote and you may get some more detailed feedback from people.

    This was actually one of the first things I ever did as an online venture. I contacted this guy who has a video that has over 100m views and was getting around 1m views/day. Told him I would pay him $20 to put my amazon affiliate link in his description. HE AGREED!! I was young and I was sooo excited to see the money come rolling in. I only made around $500 and then for some reason amazon screwed me over and I no longer received commissions on it

    Youtube links are nofollow except for the Tumblr and Wordpress icons.

    It's against Amazon TOS to link in YouTube videos although people still do it.

    I've heard of people buying YT accounts with a lot of success so you may want to consider that. Ultimately what you want is the description anyway so if you could get that when a prospect's asking price is a little steep, that would be a nice alternative.
