    So, i am uploading a few hundred videos over the next few months, with a link to my site (home page, post or both) in the description

    the question is: is there any such thing as too many links from youtube / dailymotion etc. ?

    There is no problem if you diversity anchor texts and contextual texts.

    Youtube is nofollow.

    i am not doing any seo for the site other than social media and videos (now)

    the funny thing is every time i pointed a youtube video to our site the ranking actually dropped for that post in question.
    wondering what i am doing wrong. specially since there isn't much that one can do with these links

    that is exactly what i cant understand.

    why the ranking dropping after i add the link to my site from the videos.

    i add video + link and then embed it in the post.


    and bam 2/3 days later the ranking tanks. sometimes it just one or two positions lower sometimes i disappear to the second page or worse.

    You are probably using rich anchor text for internal linking, which isn't a good thing. Do concentrate on using non-rich anchor texts which will help to increase your ranking on Google.

    i am not using any links... internal links are images and title mostly.
    + the thing to note is only this happens only after i add video links.

    Have you thought of the possibility of this being a coincidence?
