    Is it possible to use Adwords to promote a video or can you only use it for a channel? I’m wondering the best way to increase view counts (for the lowest cost). Questions about 41 and 42. Where do you buy these?
    41. Buy targeted YouTube views
    42. Buy targeted YouTube channel subscribers

    Great collection of some practical points! Thanks for these. I recently created a channel and was able to get good users from social channel like facebook, i did it by installing the videos tab on my facebook page using a small app http://apps.facebook.com/youtubevideostab
    Also customizing the channel can be a great way.

  11. Bedi says:

    Great Compilation!

  12. Deborah Rivero says:

    I have searched and searched for how to do number 12. Connect your YouTube account with your LinkedIn account. All the information online shows that it is currently not possible without using another app like Slideshare. Can you send me instructions on how to do so, or send me a URL for this? I really don’t want to keep duplicating my efforts by posting videos in one more website. Many thanks.
