YouTube SEO - Overview Your video will perform well in YouTube based on three key points: 1.Tagging vs. Description 2.Calls-to-Action 3.Slick Theme Proper tagging and keyword usage are the most important influences for organic search ranking of channels. The video itself will rely heavily on the text in the description more than anything else Adding in simple call-to-actions will help increase traffic and pick-up on social networking sites Your channel should look similar to the company website
Channel Settings Title – Include your company name in the title Visibility – Check the blip to make your channel visible E-Mail Location – Check the box so others can find your channel via e-mail Channel Tags – This is the most important part of channel optimization Choose 3-5 keywords you want to target for your channel. Make sure these keywords are the same ones you use on your website and that they are relevant to your business Separate each keyword using quotation marks. It should look like this: Atlanta Foot Pain, Atlanta Heel Pain, Atlanta Arch Support
Channels – Videos/Playlists 1.Always select the My Uploaded Videos option in the featured content box 2.Always set one of your videos as the featured video 3.Check the box to play your featured video automatically
Channels - Profile 1.Use your business name for the name 2.Use the exact URL to your website under the website section this will be the only followable link you can obtain through YouTube 3.In your channel description, summarize the content of the channel, and include a link to your companys Facebook or Twitter page (note - these will be nofollow links) 4.In the About Me section, it is important to give a brief description of the company using the targeted keywords 5.All other sections of the profile are great to have, but they will not help optimize the channel in any way.
Channel Themes & Colors No impact on the optimization Choose a theme and colors that are similar to your website
Video Title Info and Settings Section: Video Title Two good best practices to consider… Always include the word video at the end of the title Include your company name in the title
Video Description The description text is critical ! –Include the company website URL at the beginning of the description (No-follow link) –Mention the company name after the company URL –Include minimum of 3-5 keywords in the video description –Several sentences + with keyword rich content –When users click on the video, the company URL will still show up in the video description without the expanded view –Include links to the company Facebook and Twitter pages at the end of the video description –Local Must-Do -- Create a citation (Name, Address, Ph#, and URL) back to business
Why the link at the beginning? The reason I suggest putting the URL at the beginning of the video description…. YouTube features a rollover-style description viewer This means that anything not in the first line of the video description will be covered up unless the viewer clicks to read more.
