I always cloaked the Clickbank links with my own domains. It worked well for a while, and I made over $2000 some weeks. I started in 2008 and it worked well until last year. Then Youtube rapidly closed all of my accounts.
Ok I have realized my mistakes, and now after studying a great video course I have some great ideas about creating genuinely helpful videos that will hopefully add value to youtube, but I still will add affiliate links. This time I want my videos to last a long time, and I am being very care full about doing everything as ethically right as possible.
One thing I cant get an answer on is: Does it violate Youtubes Tos to place a cloaked aff link in the description box???
When I say cloaked, I mean cloaking the aff link using my own domain.
I have searched this topic and some say it violates and others say it doesnt.
