Was [webmasterworld.com...]

So there are now many more features in YouTube - are any of them actually click friendly yet?

New features include annotations and captions, and all that other stuff used by the likes of iJustine!

There actually is a way to get the click (other than the not-so-pretty URL in the description hack) and I'll tell it after a couple of posts telling us what you learned.

ok - so no takers? there's this great new feature called embedding - also promoting - that works in conjunction with adwords. These are called YouTube Promoted Videos.

it is a bit kludgey - for instance, you bid on keywords, but from what I can tell, they don't tell you what your ctr is on a per keyword basis...

but it drives traffic from the video to your website very nicely!

Something worth looking into chewy. I basically lost interest in this..then where's the interest here at WW?

Thanks for the reminder.

...and YouTube's data reporting continues to improve, albeit the interface is a bit tricky and they still have a way to go yet.
