    Smile Help needed regarding Youtube & affiliate products


    Hello everyone,

    I have questions about youtube SEO.
    I explain my case.

    I own 20 youtube channels with 20 videos on each.
    Every videos are 2 minutes long.

    My videos deals with cat training tips and dog training tips for puppies.
    An actor (from fiverr.com or odesk.com) make a short speech about "how to clean cats teeth" etc etc.
    Then he says "to get more informations click the link below my video and enter your email".
    People get into my list.

    I collect more than 400 free leads per day and i make about $80 / $120 income per day in the back end.

    I downloaded Brody Kazouris course "tube business training" because i wanted to know better about youtube SEO.
    This course is great but i still have questions for you.

    Sometimes i try to drive my viewers to Amazon instead of collecting their email.

    But i want the affiliate link to be hidden from the visitor. I am also certain youtube decrease the ranking if it contains an affiliate link.

    Do you think it is better to use bitly.com or tinyurl.com to shorten an affiliate link placed in my video descriptions?

    Here is a Bark Control Collar sold on amazon.com
    amazon.com/PetSafe-Basic-Bark-Collar-PBC-102/dp/B0002C7FHC/ref=sr_1_5?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1428097738&sr=1-5

    If i use bitly.com to shorten my url the link becomes amzn.to/1GqflPL
    As you can notice youtube can see it is an affiliate link

    If i use tinyurl.com youtube cannot suspect my tracked link.
    tinyurl.com/pdzurdg

    Do you think this impact my ranking?

    Thank you for your help and advice.

    Marcus

    Link shorteners are traditionally not crawled so they do not help nor harm.

    I have ranked several YouTube Videos & I have never had any impact on the ranking after adding affiliate link. But, from past 5 months I have been sending my YouTube traffic to a Landing Page or a Amazon Review website instead of directly using affiliate link.

    Depends on how much detail you want to track. For a media campaign of a company publishing lots of content, probably a bitly is a better option.

    SeoEnroll, i will stop using affiliate links in my description
    I personnaly get a lot of traffic due to the tag generator i use.
    8 months ago i collected tags manually or with micro niche finder but i was loosing my time. I saw this advice in brody kazouris course. I found it for free on the internet, don't pay for it. The problem is he doesn't go that deeply into details

    Does anyone try to collect leads with videos on daily dailymotion?

    Thanks

    Marcus
