Hack Your Craft's curator insight, March 5, 2013 5:49 PM

The Skinny:

 

70/30 split You

 

Direct link from youtube videos (hint: not just your videos, organize your friends to promote you through there nonrelated or partially related rants online)

 

Direct listen/link from google plus

 

One-time fee $25

 

When people search your name, guess what pops up. One click less to yoru site, if that's what you want.

 

*Not a bad deal. Straight forward and intergrated into the big girl of all search engines. But its still pretty much no different than what is already out there. So you have to ask yourself who and by what means do you prioritize your distribution?
