Here’s an easy tip that will help you drive traffic to your website or anywhere else online.

A lot of people don’t realize that you can post clickable links in the descriptions of your YouTube videos. Fewer still actually do this for all their videos.

But really, why wouldn’t you want a link to your website or somewhere else where viewers can learn more about you?

All you need to do to add a link to a YouTube video is to put it in the ‘description’ section for your video. Just be sure to include the ‘http://’ so the link will be clickable.

Here are some screenshots to show you what I mean:
