    Hi, as i'm new to youtube & adsense, i have a few questions regarding SEO for my videos.

    1. How to choose/make the Best title for it to be best visited/paid. (On what basis)

    2. How to choose the Best Tags for the video.
    I've seen tools like Adwords keyword tool, Contextual tool & Youtube keyword tool.
    Incase its either of them, what should i look for, in terms of:
    a. Relevance
    b. CPC
    c. Competition
    d. Global or local monthly views

    3. Does the diff. combination of words matter? Like: Dog Sausage, Sausage dog etc.

    4. Does the order of Tags matter? Like better keywords first n so on?

    It would be really helpful to me if you can tell me what really works with this, as google is filled with all diff. answers & all of them are diff. so i'm confused as to what really works.

    Genieagarwal,

    There are a few things you can do to optimize your video for search engines. Use your target keywords in the title and description of the video. Choose an appropriate category for your video or the closest one if it doesn't fit neatly into pre-populated categories. One thing a lot of people miss is having the file name of their video be the targeted keyword or keyword phrase. So if your video is about how to fix a car and your target keyword phrase is car repair tips, an appropriate file name might be CarRepairTips.mov or Car_Repair_Tips.mov. Also, include your targeted keywords as well as other relevant keywords as tags for the video.

    One tactic that may take some more time is generating backlinks to the video or having it embedded on other sites. If you own or manage web properties where the video would be relevant (such as a personal blog or Facebook page), embed the video on those sites immediately. This doesn't have anything to do with YouTube but to get more exposure for your videos you could try uploading your video file to other video sharing websites such as Vimeo, Daily Motion, or Veoh and using your target keywords in tags, descriptions and titles on those sites will help increase its visibility.
