When it comes to video marketing, there is a lot more than just uploading a video to Youtube.com! …
Once you upload a video to Youtube, the next step will be to drive as much traffic as possible to the video.
One good way to get free traffic to your videos on Youtube – is through the search engines.
It is a smart idea to do some search engine optimization to every video you upload to Youtube. I’m going to share with you 5 simple SEO tips for Youtube Videos.
These are simple tips to help your video rank higher in the search engines. I highly recommend you to learn this process and try to implement it to every video you upload online.
And before you do all this, of course, you need to do some keyword research. You want to use the keywords people are using to find information online.
You can use the free Google Keyword Tool – and you should also use some long tail keywords from the suggestions in the search engines.
Play around with the keywords and see what people are actually looking for in the search engines. Once you have the keywords you want to use, it is time to optimize your video on Youtube for the search engines.
5 SEO Tips for Youtube Videos
1 – Video File
Use your keyword in the video file name.
This is just something I personally do to help the search engines learn what my video is about a lot better.
2 – Title & Description
You want to use your keywords in the video’s title and in the description.
I suggest you write a short review about your video in the description – and don’t forget to use your keywords.
This is a great way to tell the search engines exactly what your video is about!
3 – Thumbnail Image
You should try using your own Video Thumbnails. This way you can also put in the keyword in the Image File.
4 – Tags
Use your keywords in the Tags for the video.
Just be careful to not use way too many tags. You do not want to confuse the search engines and Youtube by putting irrelevant keywords in the tags.
Try to keep it specific with the tags. Learn exactly what your video is about and what other little keywords people might relate the video with.
5 – Video Promotion
This is a very important part of this entire process. I have seen people fail to do this part of the process and wonder why they are not getting a lot of views on their Youtube Videos!
Once your video has been published, the next simple step is to share it all over the internet, as much as possible.
Share your video all over the social networks!
Just go bananas promoting your video!!
Take some time to drive a lot of traffic to your video. This will help the video get a jump start in the search engines.
If your video has a lot of value and you are using the right keywords – with some good marketing to it – you can start getting some good results with video marketing.
You just have to put it all together the right way and be very consistent with the content.
Success with video marketing is not going to happen overnight. You need to put in the work, get the experience, and just keep on doing it until it starts paying off.
If you quit half way, then you will never know if video marketing works for you or not. And you are the only one who can find that out!
These are simple SEO tips for Youtube videos but they do make a difference when you are trying to rank your video for certain keywords in the search engines.
