I want to use my YouTube channel and video pages to promote my website.

I have read a website that talks about backlinks and anchors which use something like: <a href="http://foo.com">foo</a> to create the backlink . However as I know I cannot create a backlink like that in video description. How I can create a backlink for my website in YouTube?

Simply put, you can't, except you have a brand or partner channel, which allows you to do that. Place a link in the description of your video instead and make sure it's above the fold if your video description is longer:
