    • 30. Video SEO 101 – Ranking Factors• My personal goal is to get 1,000 views and 100 social interactions in the first week of a videos life. For most terms, this blasts the rankings near the top of YouTube search.
    • 31. Video SEO 101 – Ranking Factors• Unless people keep coming to your video and talking about it, your video will have a very short life cycle in search• Relevance is how all search engines survive. If you make this your goal, you will be much better off
    • 32. Video SEO 101 – Basics - Title• The best way to create a title is to know what you want to rank for. You don’t have to get too fancy. Just make sure people are really searching for this term.
    • 33. Video SEO 101 – Basics - Description• Put a link on the first line as a call-to-action• Use your title keywords in the description• Tell people what to do next Good example:
