    Guys can you reveal a secret how do you post links in youtube comments?

    When I put in bit.ly link it gives me an error: Error, try again

    Is there some trick you use or some workaround to this?

    Use a backslash instead of a forward one e.g:

    bit.ly\yourlink

    when copied and pasted into the browser it automatically changes the \ to a / and redirects the user to the website.

    If you have extra money you can use info domains something like yourdomanname.info or you goo.gl redirect

    Why did you get an error? Were you promoting a affiliate program or CPA link? Some networks (goo.gl bit.ly) don't allow those links any more due to spam etc.

    Search on google for new url shortning services, and pick any that don't end in a .com

    A good one is x.co Once you get your link e.g. x.co/url copy it it to youtubes comment section and replace the / with a \ so it looks like

    x.co\url

    Hope that helped.

    Anything with .net, .com and those extensions is banned with a forward/back-slash. So .co, or .ly (bit.ly) is pretty good. But I would suggest, most of all; http://www.goo.gl

    They obviously won't ban their own domain anyways.

    goo.gl is good but they don't allow most affiliate link i.e. clickbank.

    Why wouldn't they ban their own domain? They don't allow ANY urls in comments period.

    Nice trick. Could also try something like ww.URL, although I'm not sure if that would work on IE

    That's how it works, they add a new safeguard, you find a loophole. Abuse it until they fix it then you find another. Just be happy they didn't think of all extensions right off.

    If goo.gl doesn't allow domain, just bit.ly it first, then goo.gl that bit.ly link. #smart

    I have never seen a link in the comments of a youtube video.

    Unless of corse we are all just talking about a non functioning broken url like- wwwDOTmywebDOTcom / page

    If anyone can do this please post a link to it.
