YouTube associated link is massively important when adding a link from a YouTube video to your website, you need to be aware of YouTube rules. If you add a link to YouTube, and its not a YouTube authorised link, you run the strong risk of losing that channel.

They do obviously realise that there are times you may wish to, so they have created a way you can do this, and not break their rules. Many people will add a link to their introduction, or ending of their video, but haven’t connected it with YouTube.These same people are then shocked when their channel disappears.

  1. You’re right Alan. There’s always a risk of losing a channel if an unauthorized linked is used. It’s frustrating to realize it’s too late before knowing it. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Thank you for the post. I did not know that YouTube could shut you down for using the videos elsewhere. I am in the process of switching my site so this one I am working on is not associated. Will have to take care of it right away.
