    I will make this tutorial quick and to the point. The foundation to getting your video found on google is to make sure that the video file name must be renamed to reflect your keyword phrase for your Youtube video. So when you download your video from your camera to your desktop go to google keyword tool and do your research on the exact phrase you will use for your youtube video. Once found rename your video file. Then upload to YouTube. many people think this isn't important but it is.

    To me you have to know the basics. I know alot of people will look at this as being stupid and trivial but It is huge. Much the same way as uploading your video to Facebook in a post as well instead of just posting a Youtube link to your video.

    Nice tip you've mentioned here. It's so basic that people often overlook this. At times you need to go back and re-read what you've learned so far.

    I always do that and it is quite common thing to remember while uploading video on YouTube.

    I used to do that as well back when I uploaded videos to YouTube both for organisational (I always kept copies) and ranking purposes .

    Having an SEO agency still doesn't convince people this. Its very simple. I have clients that have no clue about this and think it is a big waste of time.
