How to Use a YouTube Subscribe Button to Drive More Traffic to Your Website
YouTube is the third most visited website on the Internet behind Google and Facebook. Its popularity continues to grow as more people visit YouTube each day to find information about products and services online. If you haven’t already made YouTube part of your web traffic strategy, it’s time to discover the power of having your own YouTube channel subscription button.

It’s important that you attract subscribers to your channel. Your YouTube subscribers are notified each time you post a new video, which helps increase your video views. When you have more views, YouTube will more prominently display your videos across its platform. These video views can be used to direct traffic back to your website.
