    Hi BHW, i started doing PPD on YouTube again. So my question is: how to properly tag youtube videos ? I used to fill up tags section with youtube suggested keywords. Some videos did nice, some not. I know i was probably doing it all wrong. I would be thankful for your suggestions.

    I'm not 100% sure. But I use google adwords to get ideas and go for the lower end keywords with at least a few thousand+ and go up from there, my gaming tutorial climbed to 1200 and is at 60/day atm, may switch out the tags for some more high global monthly traffic.

    It depends what you want to rank for.... you don't want to over-saturate you video with lots of keywords, I would choose 6-12 highly relevant keywords, un-relevant ones (that you think will help) will end up just hurting your video.

    I always put a form of my title in there - when your searching for a video, what does the YouTube autocomplete say? Remember this changes in different geographical locations.
