    I just post the video that vendor share to affiliates on youtube, why youtube rejected (terms of use violation) my video after I uploaded? please let me have your suggestion and thank you for your attention.



    But a thing worth to remember is when promoting a website adding it to an embedded YouTube video the contents of your site should be related to the video that you wish to promote. When i used my web link not related to the videos the views where many and bounce rate were to many.
