Youtube video title
The reason I have added it to number one in the list is because it is most important of all the tricks that I’m going to share. So, what you basically have to do is, any video you upload will have a keyword, make sure to start your Youtube video title with your keyword. I’ll give you example from my site, I had uploaded a video where I have shared the guide on how users can stop Facebook Friend suggestions and my Keyword was Stop Facebook Friend Suggestions. So, I kept my Youtube video title as Stop Facebook Friend Suggestions updated 2017. I’ll share below how keeping the my Youtube keyword tile with my main keyword helped me.
Youtube Video Description
This is the second most important thing after Youtube Video title, adding a description of about 250 to 300 words, with variation of different keywords related to your video, and make sure to start your video description with your main keyword. Like for an instance, I’ll start my video description as Do you want to Stop Facebook Friend Suggestions, here I’ll show different method to disable friend suggestions on Facebook. As you can see, with is just one line I have added two keywords Stop Facebook Friend Suggestions and disable friend suggestions on Facebook. Also, if you have blog linked to your Youtube channel make sure add your blog URL at top drive traffic to your site.
This I believe is of utmost priority, the moment you publish a Youtube video make sure to shared on Facebook, Twitter, Forums, Facebook Communities, groups etc. The more number of time your Youtube videos gets watched in first week of uploading the video decides the ranking factor of that video. Even if you gain more than 1000 views in the first week, it will be easy to rank that video.
The more users are sticking with your Youtube Videos the better it is for your channel and your chances of users subscribing your Youtube Channel. Make video more engaging, upload unique video, add nice intro and outro video. This will help you build brand image of your Youtube channel.
