    How would 10.000 visitors to YouTube clip about dating would convert to dating site sign ups?

    How Youtube converts for you? 1:100, 1:50... ??

    Not sure but if it were targeted visitors it might help a lot. my blogs have been sucking in terms of conversion when they didn't get targeted visitors.

    I don't use dating, but with my niche (gaming related) I get around $50-$100 per 10k views.

    man days are gone when it were converting 1:100. Now even if you have 1K visits on your clip you can't expect that 5% viewers will click on your link or visit your website.

    The other thing I noticed with YT is if you have some thing extraordinary or unique niche never seen before it might convert pretty well but dating is spammed as hell at Youtube so I don't think it will convert like the ratio you provided.

    but yep if you have unique content with unique niche it might work pretty well.

    Youtube is horrible traffic for dating/adult . however, cams is a different story.

    The problem with youtube is that the traffic you will get is all international so some of the countries you are getting traffic/clicks from will not be able to be processed by your sponsor(s).

    I would highly suggest pushing something mainstream like CPA offers or sending the traffic to a squeeze page of yours that has AdSense or some type of PPC sponsor banners on it.

    Yeah, I have unique offer and BH method to move 10K-15K in directions choosen by me... I know that dating is paying up to $200 per sign up...
    I could move this traffic to article or blog, just thought that YT could convert on 1:100 if traffic is comming from outside...

    put yourself in the shoes of the regular YT surfer, is the video interesting enough to make them click the link or visit your site? the more targeted the traffic the more likely the conversion i have a new web site since a week ago uploading averagely 7-10 videos a day and the traffic i am getting to my site from YT is 25/day and i am guessing it will increase once i upload more vids and its a popular niche so its widely searched on YT.

    This is a different way of doing it, but what we do is we use Youtube videos to increase the rank of associated money websites. To do this we use a BH viewing service which increases the views, and then run Scrapebox or xrumer to get backlinks to the video. The video is uploaded to more than just Youtube using Traffic Geyser. Real people do watch the videos and there is some smaller conversion rate, usually around one tenth of one percent (.1%). But the keywords that are optimized using the videos tend to be #1 on Google and for us this has been profitable. We tend to sell physical products or info products that cost hundreds of dollars, so we can get by with a fairly low conversion rate on the videos. The associated web sites tend to have a much better conversion rate, around .85%.

    There are many layers to optimization, and just because a video doesn't convert doesn't mean it is a bad idea. If the associated web site is driven to #1 by the video and it converts a much higher rate, the effort may be well worth it. Making videos with Animoto or its cheaper clone, MindMovies, is relatively simple, so not a lot of money has to go into the creation and the optimization power seems much higher than traditional backlinking.
