I am not an authority on the subject. As an affiliate marketer and a content creator, I like to learn and share my experience hoping it helps you get ahead as you build a business online.
With that out of the way.
Whether you are a professional affiliate marketer or a beginner, you probably know the value of videos in marketing already.
Knowing how to rank your videos can impact your online marketing experience tremendously.
Achieving this aim without a free video SEO tool like Tube Buddy will be near impossible.
Ranking your videos with a tool like that eliminates guesses from your marketing. On the flip side, it is like taking a sling shut in the dark without it. And that’s ridiculously aimless.
With this tool, I was still making the same mistake that a lot of video content creators make. I was using random tags and was not getting ranked. until I looked at it critically and worked on my understanding of the tool. then I starting ranking videos. So, let’s look at how to rank videos generally.
Paying attention to title and description is as important as creating high-quality video content that is relevant to the need of the people who search for it. When the content in the video is good, people watch for much longer. And that increases your AWT (Average Watch Time). As a result, YouTube rewards your ranking.
How to tag videos correctly to rank
First, the tag section of your videos has to be consistent with the focus keywords in your videos, it’s title and description.
Don’t be caught up in applying popular keywords. Choose relevance over popularity.
In order to get the best result with your tags, you need to keep them super focused. Which simply means that you want to pick a specific keyword or key phrase.
Doing this will help the YouTube algorithm to understand what your video is specifically about. So it can serve it to the right people.
It also helps YouTube to suggest your videos to a wider range of audiences, based on interest and what they are looking for. To max your result, you need to keep your tags focused and keep it relevant to the subject.
You might be wondering, How do you decide what these keywords should be?
You want the keyword to be directly related to the message in the video. If you give the wrong information to that youtube algorithm, your videos will be served to the wrong people and they will click off. This could hurt your ranking badly.
Try to target popular keywords in your videos. You can use a free keyword tool called KeywordEvery by downloading it unto your internet browser.
Place your primary keyword in the very first line of your description and make it your first tag before you enter other complementary tags.
For example, if your primary keyword is ”rank videos with TubeBuddy”, you can add complimentary tags like ”rank on youtube”, tools to rank videos, etc. Complementary keywords in your tag don’t have to be popular. They just have to be relevant to the primary keyword.
Make sure you are grammatically correct.
Don’t forget to say your primary keyword out loud in the video at least once. A couple more times is even better.
Another tip that will help you rank videos higher on youtube is taking advantage of a trending topic first and create high-quality video content around it.
In conclusion, doing all of these is never a guarantee that you will rank videos higher on Youtube. Because other factors do come to play and they are beyond your control. However, making this your regular practice gives your video an edge on the world wide web.
I am curious to hear from you. What approach will you rather take? what will you do differently?
