    Hello,

    Simple newbie question to start off, but: Are tag words specific in youtube search? Say, for example, I posted a video that involved the tag word car, would my video show up in youtube search if someone typed "cars" "Automobile" "Vehicle". Or is it as I asked, word specific? I've been tagging all variations that I can think of. I'm just wondering if I'm wasting my time. I've searched for this answer on google, but the best I can find is answers from a few years back. And youtube changes all the time, so I don't know what to think.

    Second question if someone can kindly answer:

    I started posting videos on the 7th this month, I've totaled a 120k views, according to youtube, but only 35k was monetized in adsense stats. Third party matches etc. Of that 35k I made £18. Page RPM 53p. I've had a look at my adsense account and it seems I'm getting 5p a click on ads. Is this normal? Does it ever increase on popular videos? Or will it always be 5p a click?

    Not that I'm complaining about 5p a click mind you, Just wondering.

    The title keywords are word specific as well as arrangement specific in order to determine the most relevant search results. But tags do not necessarily have to match the exact text and can yield results for similar or related keywords.

    Good to know, thanks. So, instead of worrying about tags, I should focus on the title of my videos? That will come up first in a youtube search?

    Yes the title is most important, followed by the tags and then description.
