How To Optimize & Advertise Your Videos
Search Engine Optimization is a way to improve the quantity and quality of traffic to your website or YouTube channel. With YouTube SEO, you will get traffic for free 24/7 in the long run.
Step No 1: Find Untapped Keywords
When it comes to video ranking, “Keyword Research” is the most important step, and most of the time done incorrectly.
- Create a list of seed keywords
Seed keywords are terms that describe broad topics; for example, if you are in a digital marketing niche, your seed keywords would look like this.
- Facebook Marketing
- Quora Marketing
- Content Marketing
- Social Media Marketing
See how it works? You can write down the list of keywords with a broad scope to create videos about.
Pick any term from your seed keywords and paste it into the Youtube search bar and Youtube will suggest search terms; this works just like Google.
You need to pick these suggestions and then analyze competition and search volume for these suggestions.
Fine, now we have our long-tail keywords, and it is time to choose which one we should use.
Well, the answer is simple we will choose keywords that
- Get lots of searches
- Aren’t super competitive
How will you know which keywords have the above qualities?
The answer is an awesome Chrome extension called TubeBuddy or VidIQ that you can install in your browser, and it will give you insight into the search volume of a keyword and competition right in the search results.
We have done the most important part by now congratulations!
The keyword optimize title does help a little, but it is not as important as it used to be; I would still recommend doing it.
According to YouTube, Short descriptions really heart your video SEO.
In Fact, they officially recommend long descriptions, and you can find this recommendation in youtube creator academy.
YouTube tags are simply huge for SEO. Here is how you can optimize them.
- Use at least 2 tags that include your target keyword and close variations
- Use 2 tags that describe your video by using words, not in your main keyword.
- Add 1 or 2 tags that represent your niche or high-level industry.
An extra step you can take to optimize further and take advantage of keeping users on youtube.
Playlists substantially increase your “Session Time”.
Actually, YouTube says this about session time:
“Your channel also gets a boost when people watch anything anywhere on YouTube after watching your content.
…and when you make content that makes people watch more from your channel, then you’re helping us out.” So use Playlists to improve your session time.
