    I got an email today telling me about a new YouTube traffic trick:
    "Yeah, right", I thought. "Probably some lame newbie looking to make a dime"

    Email read 'My good friend Paul Lynch is going to show you totally FREE of charge how he generates over 300,000 visitors each and every month to
    his websites using his YouTube Tsunami traffic trick!!!'

    Anyways, I got to this link: http://www.cambridgebusinessacademy.com/products/113/1/BSN/The-YouTube-Tsunami

    Wathed the video, and WHOA! Just around 7 minutes into the video I was GOB SMACKED...IT WAS NEW.


    Here is what he does:
    1. Ask a YouTube video owner to put a link in a video's description to his money site
    2. Ask to have an annotation message at 15 seconds as well
    3. Offer $20
    He got 309,000 visits in ONE month from that $20


    Criteria of video to look for:
    1. Less than 1 year old
    2. Greater than 75,000 views so far
    3. The traffic is still increasing
    That's it.....Watch the video for all the nitty-gritty bits

    Go for it :D

    This was in the Traffic Ultimatum videos by George Brown. It was the only thing in the course worth taking a look at. Although, I certainly didn't pay for it so why do I care? :nana:

    This could easily be applied anywhere someone else is getting a lot of traffic that you want to exploit...someone else's Facebook/Myspace page, etc. Of course they could put links on it themselves, but some are just too lazy and would be happier taking your $20 than making much themselves with a little effort. This is little more than paying for a tiny little ad in a newspaper like that old infomercial, but it makes solid sense.

    Okay, nice one! :) But I have some questions. What can happen if I take some youtube vids, watermark and after that upload them. Is it safe?? I speak about 100 vids or more. If it is to pay for 100x20$ I don't think any of us can afford it. I know that 100 vids can bring you tons of traffic and from there will come the $$$.

    I lol'd at the thread title when I finished reading your post, you seriously need IM gurus to come up with the ''FRESH NOBODY THOUGHT OF THIS'' idea that you can actually contact video owners and ask them to put a link to your website in their discription?

    although this has been posted like a year ago, it still makes perfect sense. Hard part is finding those vids that are suitable for it ... But stuff like this never looses it's potential
