    Can you elaborate a little further? How will the traffic be coming from youtube? Youtube ads? Spamming your link in the comment section? Watermarking videos?

    It'll show as "no referrer" due to Youtube's HTTPS protocol.
    Unless you put the stat counter code on a site that has HTTPS you won't be able to track the traffic comming from YouTube properly.
    This is if you have a link in the description and someone clicks on it.

    Yes I was talking about link in description.

    Hmm, ok so what other way could i do it so i can track the traffic? Get a different domain and redirect i guess with traking code in domain 1. Any other options? PRefer not getting new domains just for it if i dont have to but will if i have to

    So it wouldnt evne show in google analytics since G owns youtube?
