Looking to get your Youtube videos to rank higher in the organic search results? Unlike blogging, Youtube videos often rank instantly, even if you have a new channel. However, you have to optimize them correctly. Here are a few tips for doing so.
Uploading Your Video
When uploading your video, change the video file name to your keyword. This will help Google categorize your video. In addition, you should include your keyword in the video's title. Don't make it too long, but it should be at least five words long.
Optimize the Description
Your video description is extremely important when it comes to optimizing your video. You should include your keyword several times in the description, and at least once in the first paragraph. In addition, your description should be around 300 words long. You should also include LSI keywords, or keywords that are similar to your main keyword.
Tags are also important for ranking your video. However, don't fall into the trap of overdoing it. Include your main keyword and several similar keywords.
Promoting Your Video
The more views your video gets, the more likely it is to rank. There are many ways to promote your video. You can answer questions on sites such as Quora and link to your video at the end of the answer. You can post a link to your video on social media or in your emails. You can embed your video in your blog posts.
