    Hey,

    I was wondering if having the channel name the same as the keyword is important for ranking?

    If so for those of you who do multiple video campaigns how are you creating so many GMail accounts? Is it safe for me to create multiple ones on my own manually?

    It depends I believe, I'm tweaking with youtube quite a lot lately and from what I've understood having your channel named with you keyword is going to help you ranking on google for sure, but on youtube there will always be other videos higher (depending on their channel age, subs count and much more indepth thingies of which I know almost nothing about it).

    People are used to buy in bulk verified accounts, to answer your second question. If you really want to manually do it I'd suggest you to do it through private proxies, though I never went this far, I'm still figuring out lots of things.

    Hope this helps!

    My goal is to rank it on Google, I care less about YouTube.

    I've manually created emails in the past, I just want to be cautious and not push past what is allowed.

    It will definitely help having the channel name as your keywords, or atleast having those keywords in your channel name.

    When users search your keywords, your channel will show up if it matches the query. I would do a nice description of your channel to help sell the click through for them to check out your videos.
    Also, when you comment on other youtube pages, your channel name will be the anchor text of the link back to your youtube channel.

    Just make sure to tell youtube NO when they try to change your youtube channel name to your real name (or fake first and last name) on your google account.

    What I did to rank the video on #1 on google is social backlinks really. I basically sent the views and all that first and then later drip fed some social backlinks. Didn't rank #1 on youtube but I did on google. Try it and see.

    Do you know of any good social bookmarking services here on the forum? I cant use fiverr because my Paypal got limited and I can't pay with it.

    Don't worry about social bookmarks. Seriously.

    I have no idea why so many people recommend them.

    Sure... maybe you can rank a 700 search/month keyword with lots of bookmarks, but any keyword
    that is worth targeting, you will NEED normal backlinks 1000xs more than you will need bookmarks.

    If you actually do some research using ahrefs on more competitive videos, you see that maybe 1/50
    videos ranking on google has a large amount of bookmarks. Then the other 49 videos have a LARGE
    amount of backlinks.

    So focus 95% on backlinks. Then 5% on bookmarks.

    Normally I see youtube.com/watch?v=XXXXXXXXXXXXX in the serps and not the channel name then video.

    Keyword optimization and seo in general is for websites other than Googles, you don't seo what Google owns.... Use tags wisely and get views and comments to rank higher in YOUTUBE'S results.

    I too believe it doesnt really make a difference if you include the KW in the channel name or not. Focus on more important stuff, like backlink building. And regarding the gmail accounts, there are ways how you can automatically create hundreds of them, so you probably can buy them in bulk for a cheap price if you search a bit.
