Improve Your YouTube viewers SEO tips

How to improve your YouTube viewers  SEO tips

As a follow-up to last week’s post on video SEO, this week we take a deep dive into how to optimize your videos for YouTube. It goes without saying that every e-commerce site should be on YouTube. As the second largest search engine after Google, the site is visited by over 800 million unique users every month.

1.Optimize your video titles

Titles are very important as they show in the player and in the search engine results pages. Only 50 characters show up in universal search so include a targeted keyword phrase at the start. At the same time, make sure that your titles are compelling to encourage clicks. Since YouTube says that it’s ok to duplicate a keyword phrase, if it doesn’t look too spammy and your title is still engaging, do it. You’ll want to think about re-optimizing over time to consider including other keywords as well.

2.Maximize descriptive text areas.

Use descriptions liberally, putting relevant, targeted keywords first. Include URLs starting with http:// to your channel, playlist, or site in your video descriptions. It can be helpful to use a URL shortener such as to include tracking code and customized keywords. If you have a long-form video, add links within the video to your description. Vary the video descriptions on your website and those on YouTube to avoid issues with duplicate content.
As far as tags go, add as many as you can without duplication or including irrelevant phrases. Consider related keywords; for example, if you were doing a video about an attorney then it would be appropriate to include ‘legal’, ‘lawyer’ and ‘judge’. As with titles, include your most important keywords first

3.Create playlists

Playlists get indexed separately from individual videos so they give you the opportunity to appear in YouTube search results multiple times (e.g. you could get a result for one of your videos and a result for a playlist with lots of your videos at the same time). They’re easy to do so there’s no reason not to do them.

4.Dress it up.

Customize your YouTube channel through settings, themes, colors and modules.  Also, be sure to include a background image.

 5.Drive conversions.

Push YouTube viewers to convert through in-video calls-to-action featuring teasers or promo codes, product page links in your descriptions and annotations.

Another interesting and free tactic is to use YouTube’s call-to-action overlay ads – the semi-transparent ads that appear near the bottom of the video – to drive traffic from the video to an external URL. You can set up a promotion for your video through YouTube’s Promotion Program and predetermine how much you’re willing to spend on an ad (e.g. $0.01).

5.Be unique

Consider creating unique content specifically for YouTube (e.g. teasers or bloopers) as online retailer does, or creating unique channels on YouTube.Techthrills, for example, has Techthrills, Techthrills Style, Inside Techthrills and the Techthrills Insights channels.
