    Yes it is safe...Don't be paranoid, just do it. You can also use firestats. I prefer that one over analyics since it is more lightweight and can be integrated into wordpress.

    You can also forward your traffic to another domain and then send them to your sites so analytics thinks your traffic is coming from another site.

    i dont get it - how can you track traffic from YT spam since you cant enter whole URL of your page in youtube comments - so you dont have clickable URL address, maybe only something like yourdomain(dot)com?
    Or am I missing something?

    traged there are a lot of ways to spam youtube. if i'm uploading 1,000 videos a day with my link in the description this is also spamming.
