Video sharing has quickly become an exceptional way to generate traffic to your online business site.

The total number of YouTube video publishers, as of March 2008, was over 200,000; and the total number of videos uploaded to You Tube was well over 70,000,000.

With over 100,000,000 YouTube videos viewed daily, you can understand why video sharing specifically on YouTube, has become such a great way to generate traffic.

Although there are other YouTube clones online; video sharing has become synonymous with YouTube marketing.

The concept of video sharing is quite simple.

First you produce an interesting informative video about some unique characteristic of your product.   Then edit your video, include links to your website or blog, and upload it to YouTube where it can be viewed by the general public.

With over 100,000,000 million videos being viewed daily, you can be sure that your video will be viewed several times by potential customers.   And, if you produce a really interesting video, you can attract visitors directly from your website.

Video sharing as a way to generate traffic using YouTube, is tailor made for Internet marketers.

It has a unique feature that allows you to insert a clickable link into your video.  This makes it super easy for viewers to check out your website.

Instead of having to write down and type your link URL into their web browser or email program; they simply click on the embedded URL to visit your site.  This greatly increases the amount of visitor traffic to your site.

YouTube allows visitors to comment on your videos either by text or video comments. Since it is a social networking site, there is an excellent possibility your video could go viral.

YouTube also allows meta tag descriptions in their videos and headline content, which helps with your search engine optimization.  Of course having killer video content, right out of the box, greatly improves your prospects of having your video viewed and perhaps going viral.

Video sharing to generate traffic with YouTube, is a smart bet.  Since YouTube is a subsidiary of Google, it uses Google’s search engine with great effectiveness.
