SEO benefit to creating official youtube channels in WMT?

As many of you know, google over the summer added an associate featured that let you link offsite properties with the main website. I think youtube is the only option now...but presumably social media and other resources can be linked in the future.


Anybody know if there is a SEO benfit to this? So if my site is associated with my youtube channel, do I get more credit for having a quality site in the SERP's? I don't get punished for duplicating/embedding my own youtube movies?

Has anybody tried this and noticed a difference in the rankings?

I've done it using 'Management within YouTube'.
No SEO benefits yet - it's too early to see any ranking results whats or ever.

IMHO there are more important and rewarding SEO issues to focus on.
