    Hi,

    would it make sense to build a link wheel or a link pyramid out of youtube videos only (easier then web 2.0 propertys...)?
    I am new to SEO and as far as I know youtube links are no follow, so would it work?

    THX for your help guys!

    Edit: I should add, to increase the rank of another youtube vid and not of an external site!

    As you said YT is nofollow then it won't help you in ranking. But you can still use it for diversification of links. Its nofollow it means it won't passes link juice. So making it as a buffer site or placing it on a link pyramid is waste of effort.

    I am not that much into YT. Hope same thing applies for YT video ranking as well.

    You would be wasting your time IMO, build views and links directly to your video, it works quite well for me for ranking both on youtube and (if you are lucky) on Google

    @scorpion king - I won't completely disregard no follow links, build a link on Wikipedia to your site and you will see that link indexed by Google 3.5 seconds later ;)
