According to this article in USA today, YouTube has 5.5
billion streams and 58.1% of the online video market:
That means that if you use video in your marketing, you
definitely want your videos on YouTube. Having your
videos on YouTube, when properly submitted, often gets you
top positions for your keywords.
Like many marketers, I submit to a variety of video
sharing sites. Yet, just as with search engines, only a
handful get the vast majority of traffic.
As an Internet marketer, we’ve been conditioned to focus
on quantity. That is, submitting to as many sites as
practical. However, that may not be the best approach.
Flashing back a few years, there were many search engine
submission services that offered to submit your url to
over 1000 of the top search engines. The reality was that
there were fewer than 10 search engines that mattered, and
submitting to many of the other low quality places could
actually HURT your ranking in Google (or the top search
engines at the time).
YouTube has become such an excellent source of traffic that
many marketers have begun marketing too aggressively, and
YouTube is striking back. This blog post by Jeff Schechter
explains the problem nicely: http://tr.im/UToob
Basically, YouTube is noticing that a lot of users completely
ignore their terms of service, “by creating multiple accounts,
overloading tags and keywords at the expense of content, using
‘friend getter’ type softwares, and a host of other ‘black hat’
Many top Internet marketing, and network marketing trainers
have taught using these aggressive tactics. So have many of
the leading video sharing sites. In fact, according to the
blog post above, the top dog in automated video submissions,
Traffic Geyser, has gotten many YouTube users’ accounts shut
Now, I use automated video submissions myself. In fact, I
am part owner of an automated video, audio, article and
press release submission service. That service is called Easy
Push Button Traffic. I became part owner because I loved how
easy and reliably the software works.
I also wanted to give my clients an affordable tool that
WOULDN’T get them banned.
I noticed that many of the other services were encouraging
users to do things like “spinning” content or submitting the
same video repeatedly, only giving them different titles and
You may ask what’s wrong with that? It harms the video sharing
sites by decreasing the quality of user experiences (driving
users to other sites). A person watches a video on a topic, and
then looks for related videos. They watch a second video with
a different title and description, only to discover that it’s
the SAME video. Those users naturally complain to the video
sharing sites, and the video sharing sites naturally strike back
BANNING those who submitted the videos.
At Easy Push Button Traffic, we owners took a different
approach. We insisted on protecting our customers even if they
don’t know that they need protecting. We use what Jay Abraham
calls his “Strategy of Preeminence” – putting the client’s best
It’s absolutely CRIMINAL to us to allow one of our users to
spend weeks or even months setting up a video campaign to
generate traffic and brand their products, only to have YouTube
and the other sites delete their work when they notice blackhat
We insisted upon being 100% white hat… even when our customers
often asked for blackhat capabilities.
Easy Push Button Traffic bucked the trend in another area. While
many video submission services were adding as many submission
sites as possible, we insisted on ONLY submitting to the top
sites that matter and generate traffic for our target market.
Just as the search engine submission services advertising that
they submitted to over 1000 places often submitted to link
farms, or free-for-all pages on porn sites, many of the video
sites also cater primarily to porn, reality television type
material, and stuff that primarily interested teenagers.
Having your video on many of these sites will actually HURT your
Google ranking. Google owns YouTube incidentally, and their
algorithm does consider where your videos are streamed from!
What matters most when using an automated submission service is
how many quality sites will actually accept and publish your
submissions. It’s also important how much traffic those sites
We’ve subscribed to most of our competitors services, just to
test them out. We often submitted videos, articles, etc., and
then logged in a day or two later to see which ones actually
were displaying our content. With some of the leading services,
less than HALF of the sites that we had registered for, and
properly submitted to, accepted or displayed our submissions.
We had to wonder why none of the other customers of these
services didn’t notice that they were largely buying vaporware.
If their submission weren’t going through and the customers
weren’t even noticing, we had to conclude that they merely
logged in to the control panel at the services, glanced at
the “submission records” but never confirmed that the
submissions were actually physically on the sites!
One of the difficulties with automated submissions is keeping
up with the changing submission rules, and the interfaces at
the various submission sites. That’s actually a full-time job,
and probably why many of the submission from many of the leading
submission services don’t go through. They don’t keep up with
Most of these sites are set up for individuals to manually
submit. They often don’t mind automated submissions, since they
need the content for their users, as long as the submissions are
within certain guidelines.
Easy Push Button Traffic actually uses propriety software and
technology that was under development for a VERY long time, and
Our team of programmers are constantly updating it. This allows
us to submit to the video, podcast, article, and press release
sites in a way that makes it look the same as an individual
visiting the sites.
If you are using a video, article, podcast or press release
submission service, you ABSOLUTELY should physically visit some
of the sites periodically and verify that your submission are
What you discover may shock you.
One of the other things that shocked us as we set up Easy Push
Button Traffic, and studied our competitors, was how over-priced
they were. We could only conclude that they charged such
ridiculous prices because they had no real competitors. When
you have no competitors, you can charge monopoly prices.
As we looked at pricing, looked at the fact that many of our
client would be struggling entrepreneurs trying to get a
business off the ground so that they could quit a 9-to-5 job
that they hated, we decide to charge a more reasonable rate.
In fact, we decided to initially price our service at roughly
1/4th of what the big dogs charged for their lower-priced
options. We crunched the numbers and saw that we could still
make a profit doing that.
I’ve rambled on long enough, but did want to encourage you to
check out Easy Push Button Traffic. You will discover that it
is the very best value for the money. Your submissions will get
through, they’ll be on sites that send you relevant traffic, and
