    Hey folks, after some searching i still haven't come up with a definitive answer so i thought i'd ask: What is the best place to put a link in a youtube video? I want some vids with a link to my site and some with a link to a clickbank offer.

    Is it possible to put a clickable link in a video itself?

    Cheers

    In the video description. Most people have a look there first thing when they open a video.

    You need to be a YouTube Partner. Then I think you can link to your associated website or landing page.

    There is a website that helps your overlay links or images over your embedded videos on your websites or blogs. I can't remember the name.

    Yeah and dont forget to add "http://" otherwise it won't count as link, and won't be clickable!

    Thanks for all the information everyone!
    I have another question- I have the video linking to my site which then links to the CB offer i'm promoting.. Is there any reason not to embed that video on my web 2.0s that link to my site? I know it would leave a footprint if i just use the same video in all my web 2.0s but i was going to use mvb to rewrite the code so the videos appear different to the spiders..

    Any flaws in this plan? Thanks again.
