Here are seven Quick Tips that will help you get your videos seen on YouTube and improve your SEO for YouTube videos.
Now that you have seen the video, here is the summary of what you just learned.
Create a list of keywords that describe your video. Some of the most important keywords can be names of cities, industries and types of niches within those industries. Use the keywords to attract people searching for those specific things.
2. About Us
Every YouTube account allows the user to give information about themselves. Write a paragraph that gives the most important elements of who you are and your purpose. Include a website address or place where users can get more information.
Give your video a title that includes important keywords. Avoid abbreviations or vague descriptions. Think of titles that include phrases people would use for search to find your type of video. Use your keywords to name your video.
In this video I discuss your Video “Parents of Adopted Children in Zhytomyr, Ukraine” This title has many key words combinations in it. For example, “Parents of Adopted Children” “Adopted Children” “Children in Zhytomyr” and “Zhytomyr Ukraine”
If someone types one of these expressions into Youtube search, then your video will be considered because it matches the keywords.
There are three very important tips to consider when writing your descriptions.
- Describe your video using keywords without overusing them. Keep the description informative. Longer descriptions are acceptable, if what you are writing adds value and not just a bunch of extra keywords.
- Think of your most important information, and include it at the beginning of your description. Make sure to include a link to your Domain name. You need to test that this important information appears above the “Show more” link
- Include a link to your website and be sure to include the “http://” before your domain name so that YouTube will create a link to the URL.
Use keywords in your tags so that YouTube knows the most important elements of your video. When you add key words, you can add them as individual words, or as keyword phrases. To add a keyword phrase, you need to have the phrase in quotations before you hit enter. YouTube no longer displays tags in the video description, but they still allow you to add them, and many experts agree that YouTube looks at these and they do affect your SEO.
YouTube will give you a choice of thumbnails, which are small images that represent your video. Select the most colorful or attention getting thumbnails.
If the three thumbnails that YouTube gives you to choose from are not suitable, you can design your own thumbnail that looks more attractive, although not all users have this feature yet.
Make sure you take advantage of YouTube’s sharing capabilities so that others can send links to your videos in emails and post them on websites and social networks.
Also, try to educate your church members and / or staff about how important it is to share these links in their other social networks like Facebook and Twitter.
These tips explain how to get seen on YouTube, how to get found on YouTube and how to increase higher visibility in YouTube’s search engine.
