Inbound Links Inbound links (links from other websites to your
website or video) are important in traditional SEO. They are also important in YouTube SEO, considering that an embedded video (when a YouTube video's code is added to a website, displaying the video outside of YouTube) functions like an inbound link. Getting more websites to link to and embed your video will help it rank better in search results.

Pre-Roll: Pre-Roll video ads are non- skippable and pay per click. Publishers are only offering 15 or 20-second videos. In addition, given the pay per click pricing, 15-second videos are typically less expensive per click than TrueView in-stream ads leading to more cost effective campaigns.
Bumpers: Bumpers are 6 seconds long. They are non- skippable like Pre-Roll ads but are pay per view like TrueView ads. They are also cheaper per view than TrueView ads. Like TrueView ads, Bumpers can include a clickthrough option but are optimized and most effective for views.
