YouTube SEO in a knutshell

Are you looking to improve the visibility of your YouTube channel and get more views on your videos? Look no further, because today we’re going to be talking about YouTube SEO!

First things first, let’s define what SEO stands for: Search Engine Optimization. In the context of YouTube, this means optimizing your channel and videos so that they show up higher in search results and suggested videos, ultimately leading to more views and subscribers.

Now, let’s dive into some key areas that you can focus on to improve your YouTube SEO:

  1. Keywords: Just like with any other type of SEO, using relevant keywords in your title, description, and tags can help your videos rank higher in search results. Make sure to do some keyword research to find out what terms people are using to search for content related to your channel.
  2. Video titles: Your video title is one of the first things that viewers will see, so it’s important to make it catchy and descriptive. Try to include your target keywords at the beginning of the title, as this can help improve your ranking.
  3. Video descriptions: Your video description should provide more context about what the video is about and should also include your target keywords. Make sure to use a mix of short and long-tail keywords, and include a call-to-action to encourage viewers to subscribe to your channel or watch more of your videos.
  4. Tags: In addition to including your target keywords in your title and description, you can also use tags to help your videos rank higher in search results. Make sure to use a mix of broad and specific tags, and consider using relevant hashtags as well.
  1. Thumbnail images: Your thumbnail image is another key factor that can influence whether or not someone clicks on your video. Make sure to use a high-quality image that accurately represents the content of your video.
  2. Engagement: YouTube’s algorithm takes into account the engagement that your videos receive, such as likes, comments, and shares. Encourage your viewers to interact with your content by asking for their opinions, responding to comments, and promoting your videos on social media.
  3. Consistency: Consistency is key when it comes to YouTube SEO. Make sure to upload new videos on a regular basis and stick to a specific content schedule to keep your audience coming back for more.
  1. Playlists: Creating playlists on your channel can help improve your ranking, as it keeps viewers on your channel for longer periods of time. Make sure to include a mix of your own videos as well as relevant external content.
  2. Collaborations: Collaborating with other creators can help expose your channel to a new audience and improve your ranking. Make sure to choose partners who have a similar target audience to your own.
  3. Annotations and end screens: Annotations and end screens are a great way to encourage viewers to interact with your content and subscribe to your channel. Make sure to use these features to promote your other videos and playlists.

By focusing on these key areas, you can improve the visibility of your YouTube channel and get more views on your videos. Don’t be afraid to experiment and see what works best for your channel – the more you practice, the better you’ll become at YouTube SEO!

The YouTube Algorithm Explained in 7 Videos

The YouTube Algorithm is this magic mythical beast that powers the 2nd largest search engine on the internet. This mythical beast is like the Fountain Of Youth – everyone want to be the person to find it and prove it works!

That’s why I decided to break it down into 7 parts for you to digest as part of my YouTube Algorithm Explained Series

1 – What Is An Algorithm?

What is an Algorithm? How Does It Work? In this video I drill down into the YouTube Search Algorithm for 2018. What it does and how you can optimise your videos to feed the search results with Video SEO, Metadata and Keyword Tagging.

2 – YouTube Search & Discover – Ranking Your Videos

Picking the right keywords can tags can help you teach the YouTube Algorithm what your video is about. You need to tag for the category, you channel niche and for the related phases for your video – I use TUBE BUDDY to help me – https://goo.gl/PS2RMn

3 – Suggested Videos – Make YouTube Work For You

Getting on the YouTube Suggested Videos can help rapidly grow your channel but you have you teach the YouTube Algorithm what to suggest you against. The YouTube Algorithm in 2018 forms habits based on viewers behaviours. In other words, if you teach the YouTube Algorithm to expect people to watch your video and then go to a set other video, it will start suggesting that video more in future.

4 – Master The YouTube Homepage

YouTube’s Home Page used to be the making and breaking factor on many early YouTuber’s careers back in the day. In the early years on YouTube the homepage was manually selected and globally viewed. YouTube Home Page in 2018 heavily influenced by the YouTube Algorithm your viewing habits and related content.

5 – Get Trending, Get Rapid Views

Getting on the YouTube Trending Tab is not something you can can learn from YouTube Tips and YouTube Hacks videos. The Trending Tab is the top 1% of the sites viral content for the last 24-48 hours. This normally includes top level creators, movie trailers, music videos and topical content.

6 – YouTube Subscribers Are YOUR Life Blood

YouTube uses the initial reactions to a newly published video as a way to ranking your video in the search and discovery algorithm. Getting more youtube subscribers in 2018 to watch your videos in the first 24-48 hours shows youtube how engaging that video is and how likely it is to retain viewers. Not only how long they watch that video but how long they stay on YouTube in general.

7 – Notifications Can KICK START Your Brand and Growth

The notification icon or bell icon is fairly new to YouTube. Late 2016 it is a way to guarantee push notifications are sent to your viewers and so you don’t miss any videos from your favourite YouTubers. This is effectively the new subscribe button if you always want to see a YouTubers content.

Once you have a solid selection of keywords and search terms for the YouTube Search Algorithm to disgust it will them try to match your videos to other related videos. These may be your own videos, videos in the same niche or the top ranking videos in that topic. It can then assess how relevant your video is compared to others and over time it will sink or float to the top.

YouTube Algorithm 2018 – How Does It Work? (1/7)

YouTube Algorithm 2018 – What is an Algorithm?

What is an Algorithm? How Does It Work? In this video I drill down into the YouTube Search Algorithm for 2018. What it does and how you can optimise your videos to feed the search results with Video SEO, Metadata and Keyword Tagging.

The YouTube Algorithm controls a lot of what you see in YouTube Search results in 2018. The YouTube search is built on a hidden formula that combines engagement, watch time, video views, share metrics and important data such as titles, descriptions, keyword keyphrase tags, translations and close captions.

Once it has all the data from these areas it then calculate a rank for a video within in search results and that then affects where your videos shows up – Home Page, Suggested Videos, Playlists, Autoplay and more.
