    Hi guys,

    I have seen some YT video creators put the yout.be adress of their video at the end of the video description:
    http://youtu.be/JjuUYyFfhH

    What is the usage of that please?

    Thanks

    It is basically a short URL, more attractive than the usual long urls

    there's tons of automated websites that's simply embeds every single video of youtube and search engines after time picks them up while they embedded your video they along that post tittle and description in some cases even keywords

    so might as well add URL as it will just bring more juice to Video

    P.S. search the title of this video you talking about and see how many websites embedded this video and if they passing do-follow backlink juice to the one u talking about

    EDIT: forgot to mention when you click under video "Share" it's gave you shorter URL im assuming shorter link gets more attention this way then full address

    Thanks Anthony.
    By keywords you mean Tags? I have seen several of those websites you are talking about, but I am wondering why they are doing so?
    How can I notice if they passing do-follow backlink juice please? What is the disadvantage of that as well? Are they able to rank and pass YT barrier in G?

    I will try to put the short YT address of my video at the end of the description and see if It can do anything...

    P.S Anthony, I sent you a PM, Can you respond it by your kind buddy?

    yeah tags/kw and why they doing it idk but im sure there's some kind hided reasons mostly they use embedded code or api to publish those videos which means no seo much in there but when they publish your description and URL in there that's straight do-follow juice right there I can't much tell how u can check this and if is passes barriers but if you know at lease basic knowledge of how seo works u might be all figure out this on your own by manually reviewing small thinks they do to your videos in other words testes testes testes and by the end of the week you be more knowing wtf is going on :)

    about your PM the free domains I offer to guy because he started journey and took time writhing it, unlike you just asking for same thing out of the air kind a got to deserve it i mean this in most nicest way possible don't take too personal

    hope that's answers your questions and good luck
