Shop stats, direct traffic?

I was just wondering that if I were to make a youtube video and put the link to my shop in the description bar, someone comes along and clicks on it to get to my shop, does that register as direct traffic on shop stats? Or will it let me know that it came from youtube?

anyone?
Moose Art, my guess would be no; but I'm not posiitve (sorry). Someone who knows for sure may come along.

This is the definition of Direct Traffic (I grabbed it from my Stats page):
"People who typed your URL into their browser, bookmarked your page, or clicked a link in an email, instant message, or twitter client."
Hmm, yeah that makes sense. So clicking on the link in youtube's description bar should register as traffic from youtube right?
yes, the same way google, thefind, and other sites show up in your traffic sources
I found the video, but I don't see a direct link or hyperlink to click on your shop. Nice video btw!

Kristina, thanks a lot! My cousin offered to put up a video for me, so I was just wondering if that'll bring me some traffic, I'll let him know about the direct link!
