    Hello, everybody! I read that if you add copy description with some keywords to your youtube video it would help to improve rankings to a significant degree. Is this true? what is your opinion on this point?

    In the video description, write a short text about your video taking up your keywords (tags) and your video title. Do not put so called ?extra tags? in the description, because it might get your video banned.

    As well as writing a good description of the video with your keywords have you also thought about adding a transcript of your video into your description.

    I have seen a number of people do this and it seems to work well

    1. Use keyword in title
    2. use keyword in descriptio
    3. use keyword in meta

    bonus... Try to use 2016, latest, new, in title.. As google love fresh content and these words define fresh content.. try you luck.

    You can choose strong keyword relevant to your video. Optimize the description with keywords and naming your thumbnail picture to your keyword. It helps you to get good ranking.

    I've ranked quite a few videos. It is actually more of a process than most people realize. Did you know the title of your video BEFORE you uploaded it matters? Meaning, the FILE name itself, should have your keyword in it. This is VITAL and it helps boost the rankings for sure but nobody does it so it's one of those things only the pros really understand and know. I guess you could call that a free gem for the forum. If you feel that way, click the "Thanks" button under the post.

    Having said that, there are other factors. Definitely the amount of plays, likes, comments and favorites the video has. The more people actually interact with the video, the better. Also when you do get views, the views should watch at least 40-50% of the video on average. If your video constantly gets visitors to watch 3 seconds and leave, it's a dead sign that your video sucks. No offense intended.

    The tags need to have the right keywords, too. A good strategy is to look at the top ranking videos for the keyword you're rooting for. Just copy their tags. It's certainly not illegal or blackhat, it's just common sense.

    There are some good gigs on Fiverr that will do a full "Youtube SEO boost", which is like plays, likes, favorites, comments (you have to write them), etc. Yes, this is considered blackhat. But if you're careful and just boost by like 20-40 likes, 4-5 comments and 1,000-2,000 plays, you're going to be fine.

    Add your keywords to title, description and metas. Try to put a short article in the video description and also a transcript of your video. Use your keywords within your video too, say it out in the start, and on various spots.
