Placeholders are a way to modify external links on Cards/End Screens and include the video id and template name so that you can track click-through rates and analytics on your own website as far as who is clicking on your YouTube Cards/End Screens.


We currently offer placeholders for Video Id and Template Name


You MUST use one of the following two formats (note: capitalization does not matter).


((youtubevideoid)) or {videoid}


((templatename)) or {template}



EXAMPLE

https://www.YourSite.com/ClickedACard?utm_medium=youtube&utm_source={videoid}&utm_campaign=((templatename))


might get converted to something like....


https://www.YourSite.com/ClickedACard?utm_medium=youtube&utm_source=8dne71ss0a1&utm_campaign=20PercentDiscount


for each Card/End Screen that it's copied to where {videoid} gets replaced with the video id of the video being copied to and ((templatename)) gets replaced by the name you've given the Card Template in TubeBuddy.
