    Never tried it before, and I don't know if it'd risk my account getting banned.

    I'm getting into promoting clickbank products via youtube, but I was wondering about that...

    If I use, say a tool like Affiliate Hijacker and hijacked some vids belonging to other youtube members, watermarked them or added my own link there and posted them on a new account of mine made for that specific niche.... what is youtube policies regarding this?

    What if I choose vids that don't have credits clearly stated in them? Then add my link to them....

    Oh my God! How can you live with yourself suggesting such a thing! You would actually hijack someone's videos? That's like breaking into their house and stealing their children!

    Think of the children!!!!























    Ha! JK, man. I do that several times a week and never had a problem. Works good, too.

    Here's a neat trick for you: add a frame at the very end with your url saying "Go To [your URL] For (free access/free trial/whatever)" and let it run for 30 seconds or so. People will often just sit and stare at that frame for half a minute or more waiting for something else to happen and your URL is being burned in their brain. Sounds stupid, but it works.

    Oh yeah, and be sure to make multiple accounts just in case. Plenty of info on that here, just search around.

    Ok guys, but what if youtube or Google who owns yt reports me to clickbank and got me in trouble... ever happened before that you get reported to your affiliate network for ripping other people's vids off?!

    Ok, there are these powerful tools like tubeautomator to increase your rankings and such... but wouldn't lots of views in short time raise suspicions?

    Actually it seems all social media is quickly (or has) become just a large spamfest, I wonder what's on the other side.

    I give google a year at most before all those sublinks from high ranked sites are gone.

    Seriously man... banned? Ofcourse, it makes sense... but I can't "rinse and repeat" as I was planning to use my main CB account...

    All my followup serieses are made with my main account's hoplinks.... that is why I'm asking as I am too lazy to start the extra accounts game.

    I doubt that they will ban you from click*bank, since i don't think that's any kind of spam. Maybe youtube wont like it tho ;) would be fun tho

    Ok, something else:

    Has anyone tried uploading the same video multiple times, each time with diff title and tags?

    Yup. Works, but only if you tweak the vid a little. Adding time to it is the easiest way. If you use my other suggestion a couple of posts up, you kill two birds with one stone. Add 60 seconds of a screen with your URL + encouraging words for users to visit on one, add 90 seconds to another, add 115 seconds to another, etc.

    Hell, I've been known to add three minutes of additional time of just a screen showing my URL saying something like:

    "If you don't visit w*w.[My*Awesome*Site].c*m then you WASTED YOUR TIME watching this video! Your time is more valuable than that! Go to w*w.[My*Awesome*Site].c*m now and see what you've been missing!!!"

    I tend to say all kinds of crazy shit...anything to get them from YouTube to my site where they belong. :nemoflow:

    i think it's best that you cloak your links to be on the safe side.(make it harder for ppl to find out) Seriously I don't think YT will bother about it unless you received complaints from other YT users...

    hahaha....gotta love it!
    I wonder what niche your targeting?

    asianlesbiankissing
    thailanddancing
    breakfastclub dancing
    nurse stripping
    asian model
    black females fighting

    LOL...what kind of site are you promoting?

    all joking aside...this is what I would do.

    the video you ripped from the subscriber.
    take it, watermark it, flag the original.
    you'll "own" that video for x amount of days.
    keep doing it.

    I would suggest you take a look at most viewed for the week, month, etc
    Get decent amount of traffic from youtube.....

    I checked out your site, and I would target vidz that are blocked from schools and public places. I would think they need a proxy web-based browser to access they're porn and such.

    Get more booty vidz! LOL

    No offense, but your site that you direct people to from these videos has absolutely nothing to do with the content of the videos. In fact, there's no content on your blog at all, just untargeted ads. Are you actually making any money from this? If you are great, but I just can't see it. Again, I mean no offense.:)

    Isn't there an easier way to add some changes to the same video other than manipulating the timeline?

    I'm using the same video multiple times, but each time with diff thumbnail pic placed exactly at the middle. It'd be a hassle to calculate the middle point of each video if I want my changes to be time.

    It is easier to import a new pic, add it to the already selected middle point of the video, create movie and save it, rinse and repeat... If each pic has a diff name, would that help affecting with youtube bots in anyway?
