    Hello, I was wondering different strategies for youtube marketing.
    Just wanted to make some researches, but I guess someone from the forum have done it before.
    here is what I want to do .

    Create a landing page and make an arrival that may take 3 seconds on the page, and then redirect to youtube channel. This way I can count the visits on google analytics, and the channel views. Do you think this might work?

    ome browsers from sites like ****** wont open the redirect?
    What possible problem can I encounter?
    thanks in advance.

    If you're just looking for channel views, I would use something like Autohotkey + Firefox + rotating proxy plugin. That will get you as many views as you want, which will make the video itself easier to find.

    But just to be clear, how exactly are you planning to monetize the channel? Are you relying on Youtube's ads? Or are you trying to sell something through it?

    well actually what I need is to give views to the videos.. Do you know a special way for this.
    I was thinking about redirecting the trafffic from the domain to the youtube video url.
    What do you think?
