How To Add Clickable Links/URL’s To your Youtube Video Description

A YouTube video’s description appears under the video each time someone plays it. Adding a Clickable Links is the basics of having a successful Youtube Channel. Many new Youtubers miss this very important step. If you want someone to follow you on Instagram or Facebook you need this. You can’t expect your potential fan or customer to actually type in your link.

For this reason Youtube created Clickable Links. Veteran Youtubers, use this descriptive space to convince potential viewers to watch the clip and to promote the creator’s cause or other work. Furthermore While YouTube doesn’t allow HTML tags in descriptions, you can insert a URL to another website in the description. YouTube will automatically convert that URL into a clickable link.

Click your username in the top right corner and select “My Videos.”
