Do you get any meaningful traffic from youtube?

    Do you get any meaningful traffic from youtube?

    I came across a news article which says youtube hits 325 million unique monthly visitors in India alone.

    I upload a video there daily, people watch it there, but do not follow the links to the website in the description box.

    Am wondering, any of you have found youtube sending some meaningful traffic your way?
    Those links are also nofollow, so there is not much SEO benefit.

    Are we just making content for google to make money of it, by showing google ads on the videos?
    No real benefit to us, except a new LIKE on the video, a new subscriber once in a blue moon?
    SEMrush
    What do you do so that people click link in the description and come to your website?
    Thanks

    I never get ANY traffic from YouTube, neither meaningful nor unmeaningful.

    If you have a good relevant video that a real person likes to watch and you have a genuine offer that is relevant to the video, yes, you can get qualified traffic.

    There is an aggressive update on Youtube this past few days. They already implemented "Youtube Shorts" in which they immediately featured the less than 59 seconds videos in their Youtube searches in vertical video strips. It will be a great opportunity for youtube channels to gain thousands of audiences from their created appealing short videos.

    This is applicable for smaller than 1 minute videos only? My videos are longer than that, about 10-15 minutes generally.

    I have doubt that youtube feature videos which are less than one minute ..... There would be many conditions behind make features to any videos like topics, information, graphics etc..

    I have done good with taking my tik tok videos and submitting them to youtube. Granted, I don't worry about getting money from ads, but they do get views and it only takes a few seconds to post to YouTube. I have done good with advertising shirts on youtube that people click into my facebook page from.

    Try making it funny or engaging. Little snips of funny videos along with being serious about what you are promoting.

    I'm not proud of it, but I prefer searching for videos about the topics on my website and leaving a meaningful comment with a link back to my website on the top comment (not the comment posted by the video uploader).
    Sometimes your comment will get deleted but I've been abled to drive traffic as well as makes some affiliate sales.

    How to get on last uploaded post section? I don't know about this.
    Could you please tell more?
    I don't promote any affiliate products.
    My whole idea is to build a brand for my website.
    My official competitors are some of the top known media houses of my country.
    Thanks
