    lets say you've got a powerful YT channel with over 5.000 subscribers, would it help for the ranking of the new videos to have old videos with the description having links pointing to the newer videos? or create new channels, upload a spinned copies or shorter versions with links in the description to the newer videos? any of these methods work at all?

    i.e: does internal linking in YT help at all for SEO?

    thanks for any response

    Yes, Internal Linking helps video to rank. But dont forget to put much Related Tags. YT will suggest your video with that Tags. So it important.

    Yes in my opinion it has a postive effect on your ranking but it also has not too much of an impact.

    yes, Im not convinced at all, but I was hoping someone could perhaps point me towards a more tried and tested article or source, perhaps one of those experiments with hundreds of cases. Its strange how little information theres about this topic, YT internal linking.

    My whole idea is very naive, very from a newbie starting point, that YT external links are nofollow but usually most websites have follow links for internal pages so I assumed YT had follow links for their inner videos. Experience though, tends to tell me this is probably not the case because looking at the moz extension the internal links are nofollow as well, and for my experiences I've never noticed any positive effects from this tactic

    love to hear other stories and experiences though!
