    I always give out the one they put in the share box that is the most natural way your video would be shared by other people.

    I would side with Mark on this one. In my opinion it is also better to go with something people are more familiar with, that is the regular YouTube - Broadcast Yourself. link in this case.

    Also, you must use description to your videos so that it would be optimized for search engine.

    The whichever version of URL you are using, make sure you are using that version everywhere. That's it. And you should not think about it too much!

    As long as the link points back to your video, it does not really matter. Be sure to add a proper description of your video and of course a link to your site. It is also important that you have included your keyword in the title and in tags.

    There are several ways, i normally use Keywords as my anchor text although the other more obvious ways are just as valid, i would show examples but you cant on this forum so i will write them out.

    Anchor text method - ANCHOR TEXT - this links to your site/video
    Normal Youtube Share link - PsyTrance Music Production Video Course Demo - Watch in Full 720p HD if you can! - YouTube


    These are the 2 best methods imo

    To optimize search engine, I suggest you promote with your keywords.
    Put the youtube.com normal share link (http://www.youtube.com/ watch? v.....) in your anchor text.

    It does not matter

    they are just options
    you have to share a
    link for your video.

    Short URL was
    implemented around
    09 due to twitter
    and popularity of
    social media
