Just curious how it is possible for youtube to direct traffic to one of my hubs...
I haven't checked it for a long time. However at one time, if you embedded a Youtube video in your Hub, a record of that link showed up on the Youtube video on Youtube. I don't recall where exactly.
How many years ago was this? As far as I know, this isn't the case since I began here.
It was a feature so that Youtube users could see who was backlinking to their video, and at one time it was visible to the public, too.
But to answer the main question here. I think the best way to get traffic from Youtube is to have your own videos with a link to the hub in the description.
Thanks, Marisa. I will check to see which videos I have in my hub and see of if I can find it that way.
Marisa, can't find anything like that, and I suppose these aren't my videos,, I wouldn't have access to the inner workings. Ialso took a look at the comments to see if anyone had referred my hub. Nothing that I can see. I suppose it will now have to remain a puzzle as to where my traffic is comig from. Just strange to have youtube refer traffic to a hub.
Put the url to your hub in a Google search and put parenthesis around it. Google should show you everything that has a link to your url.
It only shows me one result. That particular piece has been shared many, many times so that is not true.
Actually if you only put the title in without the url, it works. Thanks.
I've just discovered how many people have stolen my work. I seem to spend a lot of time taking this particular hub off other people's pages.
Couldn't find it on youtube.
It just means that someone else has a video on youtube and they've added a link in the comments section to your Hub. That's how i get the occasional visitor to one of my Hubs. I can't remember how I traced it back to the video - probably with Google Webmaster Tools. It was a video on a similar topic and he recommended my Hub with a link for his viewers to get more info on the topic.
Best thing is to create your own videos. You can monetize them and the earnings will be added to your Adsense earnings.
Not interested. But thanks. Except for Hubpages, I think Adsense is too much work.
I don't really do anything on Adsense. My hubs, website and youtube are monetized and I have made payment twice with little or no effort.

How do I include a video with my hub without violating copyright law?I'd like to include a video with my next hub but my research on copyright law has left me confused and a bit scared to do that. Though most people seem to think YouTube is fair game, based on my interpretation of the law, that's...

I had a hub that was receiving around 1,300-1,500 views per day. It was chosen as Editor's Choice. It then dropped by about 1,000 views per day. I opted out of the program, but that hub is no longer showing in Google for the keywords that brought it all the traffic before EC messed it up. How can I...

I know that hubpages is strict about violations and copyright but is it a violation to post a youtube video in your hub, which you know includes copyrighted material, which the one uploading the video did not have permission to upload? Like a movie clip or a song lyrics video. I know the internet...

Hi. I'm hoping someone has a spare five minutes (and a good internet connection) to help me please. Because I live off the grid in the Aussie bush and use a slow and unreliable satellite internet connection, I cannot get a youtube video to load and run to the end. All I get is the first 30 seconds,...
