I remember Misha showing me how this happened. There was somewhere on Youtube where you could click to see what other sites had embedded the video - which meant that embedding a video gave you a free backlink.
Stuffed if I can find it now.
If you go to a video's page on YouTube and click statistics, it will show where they got traffic.
If they got the traffic from you, a link will be there to your site.
That is unless they have public statistics disabled.
I've had some YouTube uploaders see that and actually put links to my sites on their profile because I got them so much traffic.
Wow that is great. I think. I am new to this , how can you tell that they visited you?
This particular time it was real-time that dropped the dime. The one that made me fall out of my chair was when NASA showed up. Sure enough, they had put a link to one of my hubs on their website. Needless to say, that one made my day. I'm still getting traffic from them. 5,700 visitors so far...
A more general answer:
Google Analytics will tell you most of everything you would want to know about your traffic.
There is also http://hubpages.com/my/hubs/traffic-sources .
Thank you..GEEZ..why didn't I see that before...hmm actually I did, it just didn't connect...duh....
YouTube traffic keeps trickling in. Me thinks me start putting more YouTube videos in my hubs...
The NASA one is the one that is awesome. However, one has no control over that. However, I do hope that fellow hubbers have taken note of the YouTube-potential-traffic info that I have volunteered here. Seriously, I never knew... Every day is an adventure.
LOL..yes I am taking note..thank you for the heads up
I'm thinking of changing this thread into a favorite-YouTube-Videos thread. I'm still going nuts over this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhyMvQ_N7Zc
That's like when I had Huff post and the Register link to some of my stuff.
Makes you feel like a respected member of the internet!
Still traffic from NASA. Even if not money expected, still one heck of a lot of fun.
Not surprised, PDS. You are little gem of astrology and astronomy and all things mystical and mathematical. Money will follow me thinks- and gimme the link.
Wow, PDS, you have 2.5k likes to that hub. WTG. Hve tweeted, pinned and FB;d.
Too bad there is no 13/13/13. I don't know what to do from here. Not a complaint. Just wondering... As to previous discussions. In fact, we have 2 of 11.
All options are open to you, PDS. I have pinned all of your astrology hubs and whenever I receive a notification from Pinterest saying one of my pins have been repinned or liked, it's usually one of yours. You cover this subject very well, you know that I think you should expand on this, and explore every possible media. E-books, free, duplicate content not a concern and you will have loads of people willing to promote the product on your behalf. Your only investment would be time.
It is really too bad about airline prices...
'Tis, but one day when we have made phenomenal amounts from our writing endevours, you can introduce me to Washington, Florida and New York and I'll introduce you to London, Glastonbury, Wales and Manchester.
It was fun while it lasted. My traffic stats are rapidly retreating back to their usually mundane levels.
Maybe I'll start a porn site. If any hubbers want to send me their pictures...
Wow - I did not know YouTube could generate traffic! Excuse me while I go load a bunch of YouTube links into my hubs . . .
I am amazed that the forums did not freak out about my NASA link. New times I guess.

Do you have a youtube channel to promote your hubs?I wanted to review some hubbers that utilize youtube as a promotional vehicle and their success with it.

I have only just started to experiment with videos on my hubs. I was wondering how other people find using videos from youtube work for them, does it generate more traffic or is it a waste of time for you?
