    Hello,
    I'm new here but I do know a bit.

    Is posting a video on youtube and having a link in the description good for seo? I know youtube itiself is no-follow, but do you get any do-follow links from some of the sites which scrape off youtube?

    Cheers in advance

    Youtube is no-follow, but you can get your video ranked in Google really fast for your keyword.

    Yeah I know youtube is no-follow, but the numerous sites which scrape videos from it copy the description sometimes too. On these scraper sites, is the link ever do-follow?

    Cheers

    Yea a lot of people use youtube to get traffic pointed towards their website. There's a couple methods on this forum that you will find useful. Look around and you'll see what i'm talking about
