How to use video to drive traffic and boost SEO


I'm wondering if anyone has a successful strategy using video to drive traffic and build backlinks/improve SEO?

Youtube is obvious, but what other video sites are the best to submit too, how do you include backlinks that count, etc?

Thanks in advance!

Check out this article that lists video sharing sites for link building:

It has been posted a while back but I think some of those sites still allow dofollow links.

The main way of including links is in the profile page. This can give you link juice but I do not think many actual visitors will go and look at your profile (unless your a big youtubing personality) and follow the link back to your website so adding it to the profile is mainly for linkbuilding. Displaying your url in the actual video as a watermark is obviously for getting visitors back to your site and it works great in my opinion. Especially with a strong call to action.
