And it is a good idea to try working on Youtube to earn money if you have cool content to share.
Anyway, now I am giving you some tips about YouTube SEO which will be very helpful for your YouTubing.
1st Step: Find Video Keyword
What is video keyword?
This is nothing more simple, just search the Google for your keywords and look Youtube result on the 1st page.
This is video keyword.
Example- blogger tutorial.
In general, Google returns video results for this kind of keywords:
- How to and Tutorials
- Reviews and the best
- Sports or humorous video.
If you create any video with a keyword that does not have a video result in Google, then you will get visitors only from YouTube, not from Google.
This is not bad, but why do not you benefitted both sides?
You can use Google Keyword Planner to get video keyword Idea.
Take such keywords which monthly search volume minimum 300.
After selecting keyword you can check on Google by searching, is this video or general keyword.
Practice can help to find the right video keyword. Therefore, try to take both benefits by placing video keyword.
2nd Step: Make Quality Video
There is no alternative to making a quality video.
This is the first priority to rank on YouTube.
Quality video always ensures more visitor engagement.
If you want to make money from YouTube then you must have to ensure quality video in this competitive market.
Because user engagement is the most important ranking criteria.
Moreover, if the visitor does not like, comment and share your video then, Google understand, this is poor video.
As a result, your video will be losing the chance to position itself well.
To increase visitor engagement you need to-
• improve video watch time,
• visitor’s comment, channel subscriber,
• add visitors favorite videos list or watch list,
• more like and share.
Duration of your video is another fact. Try to make video minimum 5 minutes.
3rd Step: Upload Video with SEO in Mind
The keyword should be included in the name of the video file.
Example- If the keyword is “Learn SEO” then the video file name should be learn-seo.mp4.
This is one of the ranking factors of YouTube.
The title of your video must include one or two keywords and it must be catchy.
Do not hesitate to take an example of the first results to get an idea of the title what is best positioned.
A title should be at least 5 words with a keyword.
Your description must be at least 250 words long.
Place your main keyword in the first sentence of the description.
Put your keyword 3 or 4 times in the content. But do not do keyword stuffing.
Another very important thing, your description must be unique!
Google does not like duplicate content, YouTube either.
You should avoid copying the same description in each of your videos.
Google and Youtube are infinitely clever, there is no doubt. But not enough to listen to your videos.
So help them understand your video topic.
Tags are not very important ranking factors but it helps indirectly.
Mainly, it helps to classify your videos on Google and Youtube. Thus suggest users as ‘Video Suggestion’.
So you can put 5 to 10 tags for your video, along with the main keyword.
