    Hey all,

    I have two Youtube videos containing each links to my niche blog + a direct link to Cleanfiles(survey).
    Is it better to remove the direct link to CleanFiles and redirect users to my blog?

    If I keep both, they'll probably use the direct link and won't visit my blog. Would I be missing something?

    Can you improve the ad copy they provide for the survey or your site? Do you need to presell them before they will buy? If yes then you need a landing page, if not then direct link is fine.

    It's just a game download link. I don't need to presell anything.

    I'd say go with a landing page if it's referring to a game. Get a couple of long descriptions of the games, and re-write them yourself for your landing page. Make it your own content. Show screenshots, as well as gameplay/the official trailer for the game. Then type the benefits of download YOUR game file over some other website's.

    That is the best idea, you never can rely on just ad copy from a game company since word of mouth from a actual play is way better, but you still can just simply direct link.
