I bet you are asking yourself what You Tube SEO is! Well it is the way to make the most of your You Tube Video opportunities to drive traffic and get free website clicks! There are some basic things that most people do not do when optimizing their You Tube videos for SEO. This post will list my top You Tube SEO Tricks and shortly will have a link to the video.
When I decide on a topic, the first thing I do is search on YouTube to find out who has the most popular video in that category. For this exercise I searched “YouTube SEO”. The first time I typed in “You Tube” and the internal search engine asked if I meant “YouTube”, all one word. Well I can guarantee that they ask everyone that so it makes sense to use the correct spelling.
When the top video in that category came up, I studied what they were doing so that I could have the same kind of success that they are having. I looked at their title, clicked more info to get access to their description and title tags, and made sure that I had similar content that added to the knowledge so that I wasn’t just tricking people, but adding value also.
You Tube Title – When you are picking a title make sure that you are capitalizing on the popularity of another video so that you come in the “Related Videos” area. Make sure to include the main keywords that the popular video is ranking for!
You Tube Tags – Use similar tags to your target video so that you will appear in the “Related Videos” area.
You Tube Outbound Links – This is probably the most important one, make sure to link back to your hub site (or money page) so that you can get incoming links from your YouTube video. Many people rely on a link graphic, but having a hard coded link right to your site is the best way to get incoming traffic.
