    Is it possible for youtube videos to be penalized from unnatural link buildling. Is it at least a lot harder for them to be penalized?

    I would say it's harder for Google to pick up on it but not impossible. Focus on building small quantities of high PR links but be sure to mix it up a little bit for link diversity sake.

    I would guess it would be harder, but I wouldn't do a 50,000 scrapebox blast at your video or anything like that.

    I would mix it up just like you would do for your own money site.

    Anything is harder but not impossible for the Google so you should be careful while building link not to get penalized from it.
