    Is it still safe to post different tiny url links in the description of videos if I am using different account ? Could they still be linked together since they all redirect to the same site...

    To be absolutely safe from YT linking my accounts/vids I use this method:

    1.) I use several pages on my site with the same content. They have different URLs...so they give me different short-URLs.

    2.) I use multiple URL-shortners for the same page. So when YT tracks i.e. my tinyurl and closes the vids the ones from the other sites remain.

    With tinyurl u can generate hundreds of url's to the same adress so why be lazy? just build a new tinyurl to any new channel.

    I assume you mean by using the alias...or is there another method?

    I think youtube caught on with the tiny urls, since i put them on they removed my videos. But the ones with a watermark they kept them up

    Jake, there are millions of videos with tinyurl in youtube. if they removed your videos it's probably from another reason
