    Its very easy, just say like download the song from the link in the description, then force them to take a survey to download.

    Is it still drawing traffic? You could also try to use it to drive traffic to another video I suppose barring that.

    I think you cant edit the description, You can comment on that video with Some Links, Author comment may highlighted

    Also your next video on that channel will get little more chances in ranking

    Thanks for the idea, which affiliate program do you suggest for that? I haven't done anything like this before:)

    Are you sure? because I already have a link in the description, link of my website where you could download the song for free.

    Traffic is growing every day. 847k views right now, 2193 likes and 553 comments, all real.

    I CAN edit the description:)

    can you please PM me the first one? it's not displayed.

    which one pays the most, out of this 3? any experience?

    will I get banned on youtube if I add this kind of download link directly in description? if yes, how should I lead to the download link?


    thanks for your help!

    CPA links are a beach of yt terms and conditions though? won't he just get a ban if someone reports this?

    It's not a breech on contract. The reason others get banned is because spam and repetitive bullsh!t is breech on TOS.

    CPA link in video and description is fine.

    OK, so I tried sharecash for two weeks, not a single download..

    my video receives minimum 1000 views per day and I'm sure most of the viewers are very interested in getting the mp3 file, but seems like nobody wants to complete an offer for that.

    Is the old account eligible for monetization?

    Hey guys, so much time passed since I opened this thread. my video now has almost 1.3 million views! but yet, I'm not able to monetize it.

    I tried sharecash and dollarupload. for all this time, I only had 1 lead..

    Such a nice source of traffic, 1000+ views a day and not earning a single cent.

    Any ideas??:)) It's 2013 now, things changed a bit I think.
