Exclamation Same Youtube Link: Will it link Multiple Stealth Accounts?

Hey everyone does anyone have experience or know if I would get linked? I currently have multiple stealth accounts selling the same product. I wanted to put a youtube link to better describe the item (since people are not too familiar with it). I wanted to use the same youtube link on the stealth accounts. Would this risk getting my accounts linked? Thanks!

A manual review will result in an easy link, compiled with other factors of course.

You want to mix up the listings, formats, designs, and try to omit from using the video for a few account listings - just to make them as unique as possible.

Isn't eBay doing away with youtube videos and live media very soon?

Thanks for the reply everyone! The listings, photos (backgrounds, positions, etc), description are all different and mixed up. Would the same link on the accounts be enough? It would be something like "Check out this video for more information on the product"

If you put the same link on all the accounts you can be linked....not going to say 100% but why risk it.

Alright now If I choose to use different links, do I have to have separate youtube accounts for the videos? And different IPs for that as well?

Could work, is this youtube link important to your product?

It would definitely help people understand more about the product and I believe it will help with sales. Upload same video to multiple video places so I have different links?

My main thing with the linking is this: aren't most youtube accounts tied to a gmail? That could cross pollinate accounts as well if its the same link...

Perhaps make different variants of the video to make it look like separate people are advertising?

I was possibly thinking of that, but what about using different video hosting sites? Like Youtube, Vimeo, etc. That way the links would be different, even though it is showing the same video.

To be safe, reupload the YouTube video so it'll be a different link to the video.

I think they're doing away with youtube links, so why bother?

Agreed. No one bothered responding to my post regarding that. I believe it will be May 1st when they implement this.

If the listing is completely different, selling the same item, I do not see it as a big issue. People selling the same item will use and link the same YouTube video if it has been already made and available...

YouTube video can be linked by anyone even if it is not the channel owner.

You can add more words, more links to the listing

And it won't be the same
