    If you make backlinks to the video there is no problem, if you blast your site with spam, you'll be penalized

    To me it doesn't matter that it is a no follow link. A link from Wikipedia is no follow as well, does that mean it should stop you from trying to get that link? Hell no!

    I don't think there is a very good definition of what makes a good tier 1 link, but for me it's simply this. It needs to be a link that you can have control over. It means you can have the power to remove it as and when you need. This is important so that you can pull out that link if you know it is not helping you rank. Web 2.0s and PBNs give you that power. YT is great as well as you can always remove it later.

    This is in contrast to stuff like GSA spam. Once you have built those links, you can no longer remove them. Which is why many on the forum would suggest building these spam links to Web 2.0s, because if shit hits the fan, you can always remove the web 2.0 links.

    You can do it. Because you can remove your link when you want to do. So, I think video links will be effective for your. I suggest you not to follow any spam strategy. Because, there is always a possibility of being penalized. You must need to concern about it.

    Nofollow links are completely useless for ranking purposes unless they are driving traffic to your site or you want to use them to diversify your link profile. Therefore....Guess you know the rest.

    Youtube is a perfect Tier1. Just make a real channel, shot real videos, invest some $$ in them.

    Youtube is good for a Tier 1 link all though its a nofollow this can give a big impact also especially if the videos have many real views.

    Yes, you can try that. Youtube videos will rank just by using spam blast, so you can also get traffic from that video.

    I understand that NF links are great for diversity. But do you have data to prove that NF links are hopeless for ranking?

    Yea it just makes it suspicious if it's all do follow link if you ask me. I have no seen any data or tested myself whether no follow links do help, so I can't really comment much.

    NO man. No follow links are still pass juice and being important for diversification. If your video is good at both onsite and off site factors then definitely your video will rank higher in you tube.
