    I was using bitly for all my youtube vids, but then bitly put a warning page up when a user clicked my links.... crushed my traffic. I see some people using their own urls in the vid descriptions, on multiple accounts. Does Youtube ever ban vids that use the same url or from the same domain, with multiple accounts and vids?

    What's smarter to use?

    If they did, it'd be easy to get others/competition banned. It's completely safe if you ask me.

    It's safe to use the same link on multiple accounts, YouTube won't even notice it probably, else as it was said it would be easy to ban who we want.

    And as it's only on the video description, again more safe... if it was comment spamming it might take back your accounts down if a stupid person flags as spam away all your comments. I have seen a video where a user has got more than 20 comments flagged as spam by other users but his account still up so maybe it's safe to a certain extent.
    But for video description, that's safe there is no problem on doing that.

    But I think if someone is using a real domain as link target he gets more trust. Coz on yt there is no need to use url shorteners....

    There's no problem using your own link. If you notice the big youtubers they use the same link for their website and they have hundreds of thousands of views.

    Don't use bit they block people way too easy.
