    Yes.
    I have had mixed results... sometimes quite good, sometimes, they fall flat.

    For some of my IT related sites, I have used Camtasia to make 'how-to' videos.

    Make sure that you put a hyperlink to your site in your video description! Youtube is owned by Google, and thus Youtube links are valuable.



    There are a bunch of other video sites where you can post your videos, if they are any good, they can generate some traffic.

    http://video-search.org

    Generating traffic is not just about finding one magic site which will send you zillions of hits, but rather a process of developing quality content for other sites that might send more traffic your way.

    There are other sites where you can post articles, article directories, PR sites and much, much more.

    I have a definitive list of video sharing sites where you can post videos... not all are 'general', some are specialized, and as I have not updated this list in a while, it is RAW, some of these sites may be offline or may have stopped hosting videos... so feel free to edit and repost any that are bad!
