  • Optimizing your video title, description and tags helps people find your video, while how you present your video determines if they’ll stick around long enough to watch.TitleYour video title is the equivalent of a webpage headline or title, and as such needs to balance SEO-friendly keywords with attention-grabbing content. As a general rule, position your keywords early in the headline, and leave your branding for the second half of the title.DescriptionThe video description should also be optimized for both SEO and readers but pay special attention to the first 1-2 sentences, because these are the only ones YouTube displays in search results. In these two sentences you need to provide your relevant keywords, catch your viewer’s attention and stand out from the hundreds of other search responses.Add a link to your website or landing page in the description introduction.At the end of the description add links to your website, blog and social media pages. If the viewer sees these, he or she has already clicked on the video link, and presumably is already engaged with your content.TagsYouTube allows you to tag a video with relevant keywords. Use enough tags to completely describe your video, with the most relevant keywords at the front of the list.
  • 15 seconds to convince a viewer to keep watching your content.AnnotationsYou can also include annotations, text boxes which overlay the video. As a general rule, use annotations carefully, and only when they bring value to the customer. For instance, you can provide links to other videos, your website or your channel in annotations.Provide a call to action at the end of your video. For instance, if you want to increase viewership, ask people to subscribe to your channel or like your video. How Many Videos?To gain the most leverage out of YouTube, you’ll need to upload new content as often as possible. A good general rule is to upload at least one new video a week.
