    I tied to post 3 comments today on Youtube, each of them had a link in it, and Youtube kept showing "Error, try again".........When I removed the link from the comments, they went through. So youtube does not allow people to post LINKS in the comments?

    It is probably considering it to be spam.

    Yes, you can't post links. You have to put a space in the link after the ".", or use a comma instead of the ".", or change the link anyway else to not make youtube think it's a link.

    yes YT does not allow any link on the comments. you can rather do this:

    www[dot]yourwebsite[dot]com
    www[.]yourwebsite[.]com
    Yourwebsite DOT com

    they are changing there algorithm all the time to keep spammers out of their channels. ;)
