YouTube Traffic Secrets – How to Channel Floods of YouTube Traffic in Your Direction!

The popularity of video sharing websites, the massive hits and page views that they receive, etc. is all very well documented. What is not is the fact that you have the power to redirect that traffic in a direction of your choice! It could be your own website, that of the affiliate you market for…just about anyone or anything. Simply follow the following tips to assist you in your efforts towards redirecting YouTube traffic.

Tip 1: Synergize Your Affiliate Marketing Efforts

Assuming you are already running your own affiliate marketing business successfully. With YouTube and online video sharing, you in fact have the power to combine your existing affiliate marketing business with video sharing. What you could essentially do is, create an interesting and exciting video around the products or services that you are promoting. Give the description of your offering in the textual content around the video. You will yourself be amazed at the sudden surge of interest in your offering.

Tip 2: Embed Your URL in the Video

Right through the video, or in the beginning or towards the end, you could in fact have the URL of your website featured. That would in turn have a positive, spiral effect on the hits on your own website. Additionally, those unfamiliar with you or what you have to offer, would gain that much needed familiarity.

Tip 3: Encourage Reposting

Display the actual URL of your video prominently, alongside the video. That way, enthusiastic viewers could bookmark the link and easily keep coming back. They could also copy paste the link and put it in their social networking profiles, blogs, etc. If the requisite code is provided along with the actual URL, viewers could also embed your video in a destination of their choice.

Tip 4: Watermark Your Videos

That way you will not only promote your website as well as your own self, your videos will also get certified as your product. Since capabilities for downloading videos from video sharing websites have been suitably built, you would even be protecting yourself this way, from potential piracy. It would also serve as a sort of marketing and branding tool for you, since you could do the watermarking in a certain, distinctive way.

As you would have figured out by now, redirecting YouTube traffic in a direction of your choice is not that difficult after all!

Five Nifty Traveler Tips You Will Enjoy

I sure do like to travel. In my life plan, the most important elements to my existence are are family, health, happiness and travel. Fortunately for me I have been able to combine all of these elements in one big happy life package.

Here are five humerous but useful travel tips that I picked up over the last 2 decades from traveling around the globe. From the ruins of Machu Picchu to the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, as well as 40 of the 50 states, here are just a few of my long list of travel nuggets for local travel in the beautiful united states. I have accumulated these particular ones over the last 5 years, and best of all they don’t cost a dime!

1. The Versatile Hotel Coffee Packets: While traveling in the Midwest, I almost suffocated in my economy rental car that smelled of dog and body odor. Out of desperation, I placed the coffee filter pack from my hotel on the dashboard hoping to act as perfume. To my surprise, not only did the car adopt the cozy aroma of ground coffee, the filter bags actually seemed to absorb the odors in about a day.

2. Getting Full Use of the Campfire: When camping in the Sonoran desert, we build a warm fire when the sun set to keep us warm while we ate our dinner. Remembering a story I read when I was a boy, I placed four medium sized river stones around the fire (not in the fire). When we were ready to go to bed, I wrapped each of the rocks in a bath towel. Please note that they were hot but not sizzling to the touch. To make a long story short, we all slept like warm babies with our little packages in our sleeping bags that night!

3. Customize Your Luggage: When the cheap plastic wheels broke on my suitcase, I decided to replace them with an old pair of Rollerblade wheels. My suitcase lasted another five years and the gliding of the wheels were so much smoother and quieter that I replaced all my other luggage wheels with them.

4. Put Your Library Tax Dollars to Use: I own a timeshare in Hawaii. One day I discovered that as a local property tax payer I qualified for a library card. I don’t know if you have been to a library lately, but now when I am on vacation I can rent CDs and DVDs and best of all its closer than the nearest Blockbuster.

5. Let Technology Be Your Guide: If you want to get more detailed information on a desired destination, consult YouTube and Google. With YouTube you can find lots of people who post videos of their trip. This will give you a good feel for the true lay of the land rather than some post production masterpiece that was paid for by your resort. Use Google satellite to see what the actual terrain looks like and if your short walk to the beach requires crossing a four lane highway.
