    Hey all,

    I am curious to know that if i am sharing my youtube video which has website url in the description, and share on other platforms such facebook, twitter, whatsapp. So does these social media link to my website. so does this will be counted in backlinks or not?
    SEMrush
    also when i am sharing my url to whatsapp to 1000 people, so does this counted as 1000 thousand backlinks to my website.

    My understanding is that Youtube links are no follow. They do not count as backlinks but they do bring in traffic if you have a lot of views.

    As far as sharing. No you would not get 1000 backlinks because the share is linked to YouTube not your website. If you embed, the description does not show up.

    As far as directly sharing your website link on WhatsApp, I believe they are also no follow. Social media is more for driving traffic than getting quality backlinks.

    on many social media sites...the links that shared on there is not counted as a backlink. Because almost of them are no follow backlink. But sometimes google can give you good effect of this shared links. Especialy on pinterest board or pin of yours and sometimes on twitter too.

    This won't count as a backlink. However, in 2019, Youtube is responsible for 37% of all mobile internet traffic (by app), so this must count for something.

    URLs you share on the social media aren't counted as backlinks. Backlinks means you are using best keywords in your content and posting that content on high authoritative websites.

    No, Social Media doesn’t give you any back link.

    But it can increase traffic to your website. If you post some quality content on your website than it can increase traffic.
    With increase traffic and good social signal, the DA of website increases

    Its not true at all. A site's traffic whether it is from social media or any other source doesn't effect its rankings.

    Youtube description links do not count in your backlink profile.

    I write guides on how to get backlinks on various sites, and there is a way to get a do-follow backlink from YouTube, but it's not from the video description.

    Social media generates traffic that can help to increase website rankings. Social signals are likes, votes, shares, comments etc to the social media paltforms like Facebook, Twitter, Likedin etc. that can help to improve website impression.

    Hi

    This will not count as a backlink. Yet, in 2019, Youtube accounts for 37 percent of most mobile online traffic (by the program ), therefore this has to count for something.

    Have a nice work.

    No, social media is just cause to get traffic for website. It is not to make a backlink of your website
