12 ‘DoFollow’ Video Sharing Sites to Distribute Videos and Build Links

SMS Text

Video is a highly effective way to promote your website or product. It is more viral than text content as it is shared and distributed more willingly and readily.

Naturally, a good viral video piece will promote itself but you can always help it by distributing it throughout popular video hosting and sharing sites. It is a double benefit if those video sharing sites allow direct dofollow links from the video page or user profile page.

Here is the list of video sharing services that will help you both distribute your video and build links at the same time:

Some tips on adding a video:

  • Take time to customize your profile (add your logo or photo);
  • Find related videos at the video sharing sites and post a comment (you will thus increase your chances to be found);
  • Add your keywords to the video title but make sure to keep it descriptive and attention grabbing;
  • Diversify video titles and descriptions from site to site (don’t waste your time on duplicate content).
