If you are new to YouTube then this information might be really very useful to you. So, Have a Look at it Below –
Length – Yes, You heard it right. Length of the video is really an important aspect of YouTube SEO. Many of you might be thinking that this aspect is useless but it really matters in the eyes of YouTube. So, Try making Longer Videos.
Keyword Research and Using Keywords the right way – Keyword Research is important in YouTube SEO also. For an example let’s take “Yuvraj Singh Six Sixes.” This Keyword has 8,100 + Searches and 99% of people will be searching this on YouTube. (there is no tool for measuring Searches for YouTube but then also Adwords really helps)
Using the Keywords – This means that how you use the keywords, the Title should be Catchy and should attract people who search for this specific term.
Thumbnails – This is another important aspect for YouTube SEO, if you made a YouTube video on “Playing FIFA 16 with my Friends” So, If YouTube automatic system accidentally chose a wall as a thumbnail and the other video has a thumbnail with a picture of a boy holding a gamepad with a Catchy title in a stylish font. What will you choose?
That is the reason Thumbnails are also a really important aspect of YouTube SEO.
Subtitles and CC – It is also an important factor for YouTube SEO because YouTube always tries to give the user the best experience and that is the reason everyone uses YouTube (I said that because hardly anyone uses DailyMotion) and Let me also give you a tip, always include the focused keyword in the first subtitle, It really helps in ranking 😉
Confidence – This is the most important thing in YouTube SEO then you can even outrank sites and channels like Facebook and Pewdiepie. So, Don’t lose your confidence and yes, don’t be overconfident.
Tags – this is also an important aspect of YouTube SEO which usually newbies ignore but trust me guys, it really helps in ranking your YouTube video on the first page.
Now When you have all till here, here is a tip from me – always rename your file with your keyword before uploading the video because it is really a very big aspect in YouTube SEO.
Some Tips for Ranking YouTube Videos –
- Check the Competition before uploading the video.
- Keep an eye on your competitors and check that on what keyword they are ranking.
- Always make a video on something trendy because it gets a lot of views in just a very short period of time. Google Trends would be a really great choice for finding such trends and keywords.
- Use the best Customized Thumbnails.
- Don’t get the Video too long, Just stick to the point.
- Social Shares is also a really big YouTube SEO Factor, You can use Facebook, Google Plus, Reddit and Twitter for such things. I recommend Reddit because something you share directly goes to the World and if it gets enough upvotes, then get ready for some awesome views and first page ranking.
- Use Catchy Titles and use Long descriptions with proper Subtitles and CC.
In my Experience, I wasted a lot of time in understanding the proper YouTube SEO and I really feel sad about it.
If you are trying to make money, Don’t think that you are just sitting infront of a computer doing nothing and you will get paid for it. There is a hell lot of work to do and many things need to be understand with Patience.
So, This was it. Good Luck for your YouTube Career Guys
