    They won't list actual costs, even tho I could swear they used to a couple years ago. The pay per click thing is listed, much like bidding on adwords, which I ain't gonna do, cannot stand adwords nor the concept.

    If anyone knows what they charge for a "promoted" or "featured" type video, and how it works (when they feature it, what you get, how much exposure, etc), please let me know, sometimes a good program is worth paying for traffic for.

    (I know it ain't very BH...;)

    "Featured" type videos are a natural outcome of the system. Drive heavy traffic to a video, accept the sponsorship offer (so your video shows ads), and then continue to drive traffic, and your video automatically gets added to the "featured" sidebar section. I've got a number of videos there.

    Keep in mind that "featured" is chosen algorithmically to match up with things like search queries and the like.

    How many videos do you want to promote?

    Thanks for your response, and "yes," I did/do understand that about Featured videos, I should have clarified that part.

    But the rest was interesting, and very helpful. I have constant offers for sponsorship at the bottom of my edit field for a few of my vids with higher numbers (tho I never get in the stratosphere; none are past 100,000 views yet).

    I'll pm ya, thanks.
