How do I put a link in a YouTube page?

9 replies
So I have a tutorial video on YouTube that I would like to have a link back to my site but haven't figured out how to. I can add notes to the video but these aren't clickable links. I've seen it on other video pages so I know it can be done.

    Hi. You gotta sign up with Google for video promotions on your Google account...then just set the rate of ppc to only .01 per click so that your video does not show as an ad and you get charged. Then the clickable link inside your video will show on your own channel, but you won't get charged. That's how you do it.

    Other than that, you can only include your link in the description box and then make mention of it in the notes.

      I completely agree Channing. Thanks for sharing 2 methods with us!

      @itek4bux, just be sure to add the http:// before your website address so that it's a clickable link (ie: hyperlink).

        You actually can put clickable links in the actual video itself. I made a video that shows you how to do it step by step.

        I am working on an even easier method that takes only seconds!

    yeah, in description you can have links... in captions you can't place links to websites, only other videos on youtube

    but you can use linkedtube dot com for adding overlay on a video with a button/link... but it can be only embeded on website, not on youtube

    Add your links in the description area. Just make sure when you post a link it has the "http://" variable to make the link clickable.

    There's also a way you can add clickable areas within the video.

    Not sure if I understood properly.. but if your just trying to link from your description then make sure you have http:// NOT www.
