    If I were in your shoes, I would post the vid on youtube and place the link where it was originally posted (your site). The viewers may like your vid and decide to post them in their site/blog and link directly to your website's page where it was originally posted. If you get a dofollow link from them, praise Almighty

    Youtube links are nofollow by default and hold no SEO value - unless of course the scenario I posted above happens.

    it would in some way. of course clicking on the backlink would lead someone to your video and then it would increase the views.
