Youtube to list traffic sources on Videos

17 May 2010 2 Comments

YouTube announced recently that it will begin listing the sources of views that help make YouTube videos become popular. This might be an opportunity for blogs to get some traffic if they help help build the most views for a particular video.
What this means is that you can get recognition for sourcing videos that your readers love and helping those clips become popular on YouTube. It’s another way all that hard work you put into building your readership can pay off and generate even more traffic for your blog or site. You might even get your site in front of a whole new audience via people who encounter it for the first time on YouTube.

YouTube says they are experimenting with the functionality on a range of popular videos and plan to make it a permanent feature. The Muppets “Stand By Me” video was given as an example.
