Increase Your Blog Traffic Using Backlinks From YouTube

This is a neat addition to youtube. Gives a bit more incentive to using the videos on things like your blog site. This feature could easily drive traffic to a website, although perhaps not qualified traffic.
YouTube is a video-sharing website on which users can upload, share, and view videos. Most of the content on YouTube has been uploaded by individuals, although media corporations including CBS, BBC, VEVO and other organizations offer some of their material via the site, as part of the YouTube partnership program. 

Unregistered users can watch the videos, while registered users are permitted to upload an unlimited number of videos. Videos that are considered to contain potentially offensive content are available only to registered users 18 and older.

YouTube has added a new ‘As Seen On’ link that will reward websites that send traffic to YouTube. When a website embeds a video on one of their pages and that sends a high enough amount of traffic to YouTube, the site will get a little recognition and maybe a little traffic as well.
The new backlink feature won’t help your site rank better in Google because it will be nofollow-ed, but it could introduce your web site to a new audience and could help send some traffic love back to you and reward you for your blog readership building efforts.
In November 2006, YouTube, LLC was bought by Google Inc. for $1.65 billion, and now operates as a subsidiary of Google.
Since Google’s algorithm logs inbound links we can't be sure that it is counting those links back to the site as an inbound link OR does Google only count one of the inbound links from a YouTube video details page.
Note: Since the links from YouTube are ‘nofollow-ed’, Google is not going to give any weight to the backlink in terms of website ranking. Basically, the link is just a good way to get some new visitors to your website and give them a chance to poke around while they are there.
