SEO-friendly YouTube videos are a must when you are aspiring for a successful YouTube campaign for your brand. The competition is sky-high here and only an optimized video can assure you the desired high number of views. The post below offers 4 SEO tips for YouTube views that I have personally used to secure more views.
Know your keywords
First of all, you have to get a comprehensive idea on the best possible keywords for your YouTube videos. I always find my primary batch of keywords from “Search Suggest” section of YouTube. Just go to YouTube Search bar and type a phrase or word related to your niche. The platform will immediately come up with a huge bunch of relevant keywords. As these are suggested by YouTube itself, you can be rest assured these are 100% popular. So, now you will just have to use the keywords in your video.
However, try to use low-competitive ones if you are new to YouTube. The most competitive ones are already used by big brands from your industry and you will soon get lost below them. I always check out “About Results” section to find out the competitive level of a keyword. Lower is the result, better it is for you.
SEO-optimized video description
I will suggest you to follow the pointers below to ensure a perfect SEO-optimized video description for your videos.
- Your primary keyword should be included in first twenty-five words of your video
- The primary keyword should be mentioned at least 2 to 4 times
- The video description must be minimum 250-words long and your primary keyword should be included there.
It’s difficult to get higher number of views organically if you are a new player. Thus, I will suggest to buy YouTube views and there are companies that offer up to 1 million views.
Optimize for Google
I always optimize my YouTube videos for Google to bring in viewers from the search engine giant, added to YouTube viewers. The best keywords for optimizing your video for Google are “How-to”, “funny videos”, “tutorials” and “reviews”.
