YouTube: An Insider’s Guide to Climbing the Charts

By Alan Lastufka and Michael W. Dean

How to use URLs in this Book:

The book has a lot of URLs (web addresses), specifically a lot of YouTube URLs. YouTube addresses are made from random letters, which are kinda hard to type correctly, so there’s a lot of room for error. So, we’ve taken care of that for you by putting a URL number (formatted as a Chapter.Link, as in URL 1.1, URL 1.2, URL 1.3 for the first three links in Chapter 1) for every URL in the book, and we’ve linked them for you on this page. You can bookmark this page, and refer to it while using the book.

(Note, a few of these are numerically slightly out of order, and there are a couple places where two URLs have the same number, but I’ve left them as is, like they appear in the book. Getting a book to press is a frantic event, and a few things get moved around. This isn’t a problem, and will still be a LOT easier than typing all of these.)

The web is a moving target. A work in progress. An evolving beast. Please report any broken links to alan(at)fallofautumn.com
