    Hi everyone,
    I saw good tips in bhw on youtube video promotion.
    I have one question for you guyz.

    Is promoting an offer through youtube a good way or not when considering affiliate networks, do they accept this method or do they consider this method as blackhat or illegal?

    Thanks.

    it depends on how you do it. I have seen some really smart youtube marketing before. It hasn't worked for me before... although I have to admit I didn't put that much into it

    It is a great way to promote since you can get lots of traffic. And your traffic will be mostly type in traffic so affiliate networks won't know where the traffic is coming from.

    Thanks for the reply.
    I just wanted to know whether a Affiliate Network will accpet this or not.
    For example:
    I pick a free ipod offer.

    make a youtube video. Use some methods and increase the views and so i get high traffic
    for my video.

    So my question here is,
    Does an affiliate network allow this.(I wont let affiliate networks know that I am using blackhat methods.)

    @premiumsource: what if the affiliate network finds it by using some other methods like yahoo site explorer?

    Thanks.

    I don't think they mind it. You could always ask them if they allow youtube promotion. But 99.99% they won't find out what you are doing anyway.

    I asked one of my AMs the other day and he gave a kind of reaction similar to a shrug! He just said in a roundabout way, no problem, i promote he gives me promotions. Kind of answerless really, but i take from that he means it's fine. :D
