If you’d like to know the right way to get
traffic from Facebook over to your YouTube channel and YouTube videos then stay tuned,
watch this video as I show you how. Hi there. David Walsh here, once again, from
DavidWalshOnline.com coming to you again from Mr YouTube Space here in London. Now, if you’d
like to know the right way to get people from Mr Facebook over to Mr YouTube so those video
views count on your YouTube channel then this video is for you.
Now, we all know that sharing your videos on social platforms is a great way to get
views and subscribers on your YouTube channel. But the thing is, on Facebook there is a right
way and a wrong way to do it. The thing is when you put your YouTube video link into
Facebook and the little player pops up on Facebook that when people watch your video
on Facebook those views do not get counted on YouTube.
So, I’m going to go over to the trusty computer now and show you exactly how to correctly
put your YouTube video links into Facebook so that you get those views on your YouTube
videos. Ok. So, here I am on my Facebook business
page. Now, this will work whether it’s on a business page, a group, your personal account,
whatever it is on Facebook that you can add a post.
So, I’m going to type in some text, here. So, I’ve added my text and I’ve, also, put
an instruction for people to go to the first comment below to get the link.
Now, the next thing I want to do is I, actually, want to add a thumbnail of my particular video.
So, I have my thumbnail here. So, the dimensions are these that I use, is
actually 800 x 450. That works very nicely both on Facebook and Twitter and stuff like
that. Now, I don’t put in the link directly into
this post area because it would just put the video in Facebook’s player, in here, and you
will not get any views or anything like that on YouTube.
So, I put in the thumbnail, here, then click on ‘Publish’.
Then the next thing I want to do is I want to get the actual link itself. So, I go to
YouTube and I copy my link. Then the next thing to do is to go over to
a URL Shortener. I choose Google. Then I just got to paste that, in there.
So, you just go to goo.gl and you pop in your URL. Click on the ‘Shorten URL’ link, here.
Then it gives you a nice little short link, here.
Click on where it says ‘Copy Short URL’. Copy that. Then go back to Facebook.
Then I want to refresh this, so I find my post. There is my post. So, I go to the comment,
click on comment ‘Here is the link’. And I’m going to pop that on the next line there.
And I’m, also, popping the photo, again, the thumbnail, again, just so that people
can see it there; and it, also, draws attention to the video itself. So, press ‘Return’.
So there you can see we have the image, here, the thumbnail there and, also, the thumbnail
here so people can see it. And when I click on this link, here, it opens
up a new tab and there is the video. So, that is how you link properly from Facebook
to your YouTube videos. So, there you go. That’s how you, now, should
be putting your YouTube video links in on Facebook so you get views on your videos and
you can even get more AdSense as well. This is what I do with my videos and a lot
of top YouTube experts do, as well. So, now, you can do this, too, to get those views on
your videos that actually count. So, if you’ve been using Facebook and putting
your videos in there all those views you’ve been getting on the videos really haven’t
been counting on your YouTube video itself. So, now, go ahead, use this little trick and
you will actually get those views counted on your videos on YouTube.
Now, if you regularly putting videos on Facebook let me know how you’re now going to use this
little trick with your videos moving forward. Let me know in the old comments, below. I
would love to know how you’re going to use this.
And, as always, if you have a question about this or anything else to do with Mr YouTube
pop that in the old comments area, below, and I’ll do the best I can to help you get
that question answered. Like, share and favour and if you’re not a
subscriber click the subscribe button on this video to get more videos like these every
Tuesday. Once again, my name is David Walsh and I look
forward to seeing you on another video very soon.
