    I have a question: Do any of you know if google frowns on including your website link on a YouTube Video description? I have a video on youtube with 22k views as of this morning and so far, i have been getting an avg of 1500k views on youtube everyday, and i figured that i should include a link to my website on the video description. I don't want to do black-hat SEO on this particular website since this website is going to be a long-run thing. In my understanding, google frowns on black-hat SEO. Correct me if I am wrong, I am still very new to this. Any thoughts?

    1500k views? That's a lot :p I think you meant 1500 views.
    Is the video somehow related to your website?

    A popular video linking to your website is a pretty "whitehat" link.
    Don't worry

    They don't frown on it. They frown on videos that have no value with spam links everywhere.

    Dude, any link you make for your site is against google policy. You just can't abide by all the BS they throw at you.

    No there is no issue with that. Google ignores that link and google knows that webmasters post their links there to divert the traffic. GO ahead and place the link.
