How Does Link Building For Youtube Videos Work?

Valuable videos

The foundation of any successful link-building campaign for Youtube videos is the quality of the videos you create. When your target audience clicks on your video links you want them to be landing on valuable content.

Every Youtube video you upload should be original and unique. The video content should educate, attract, and engage your audience.

If your Youtube videos are good quality then this will also make them more shareable. This will then lead to even more backlinks from relevant and authoritative sites.

Shareability is one of the best ways in which video marketing can help with your overall search engine optimization strategy.

The video description for each of your videos is also important. It should be succinct, eye-catching, and highly relevant to your niche. This will improve its rankings in search engines and attract more backlinks.

Some examples of the types of video content Link City can help you to produce include:

  • Customer testimonials and reviews
  • How-to tutorials
  • Explainer videos
  • User-generated content
  • Features on company culture
  • Service demonstrations


Collaborating with other brands on your Youtube channel is an excellent way of generating backlinks. The idea is that collaborations are beneficial for both Youtube channels.

By collaborating with another niche-relevant brand you can expand your reach and build awareness amongst your target audience.

For example, if we arrange for you to co-host a Youtube video with an authoritative brand it should double the amount of engagement and views you receive. It should also double the number of Youtube backlinks you gain.

The brand you collaborate with should have as many or more subscribers as your channel. This will give the Youtube video a better chance of ranking highly in the SERPs which will attract more backlinks.

These collaborations should be creative and entertaining. This gives the videos more chance of going viral and generating greater exposure for your brand.

Video link shares on social media platforms

Social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn have a big influence on the amount of engagement your Youtube videos receive.

By adding backlinks to your brand's social media profiles each time you post a Youtube video you'll be alerting your followers to your new content.

This increases the number of views and shares your videos receive which will generate plenty of organic backlinks. It can also result in shares from high-authority, niche-relevant sites.

This builds the credibility of your brand and encourages even more backlinks to your Youtube videos.

Guest posting

Another way in which Link City can help to obtain backlinks to your Youtube videos is through

. By creating bespoke content to post on other websites relevant to your niche we can then embed video links to your content.

These guest posts will be informative, and engaging. They'll focus on subjects related to your niche and the content of your videos.

Broken link-building

Niche edits

What's the best type of link-building strategy?

There is no single link-building strategy that is best for every brand. The strategy that works for you will depend on many factors such as your target audience, your niche, and your goals.

Generally, a holistic strategy that uses a combination of techniques such as guest posts and niche edits will be the most successful.

What are the most important types of links?

The most important types of links are do-follow backlinks. These are links from sites with a high domain authority which then transfer some of this authority to your site. This is known as passing on link equity or link juice.

How long do your guest posts last?

Link City's guest posts will last for several years once they're posted. We don't take them down once they're up. Still, sometimes there will be circumstances that we can't control where the posts are taken down prematurely.
