[TIPS] What Has Worked For Me, Still A N00b However...

    Do keyword research (this is obvious but worth mentioning). I was able to rank a video to #1 in google and youtube in a day, however it only provides maybe 200 clicks a month. Not very popular, however it's a new product and that MAY change. I've been able to rank more competitive keywords in a similar way but over more time. For high competitive keywords I did not rank for the exact keyword, however I somehow received a ton of traffic from unknown sources. Probably from broad match, unknown longtails, and suggestions after other videos finish.


    It's about a few things.


    * Video filename before you upload it to youtube, make it the same as the title of the video with your keyword
    * Title, moderate length with your keyword towards the beginning. Don't over stuff, keep it to the point maybe even short.
    * YouTube channel name, focused keyword/s
    * 400+++ word video description with your keyword and SIMILAR and related keywords 2-3 times or 4% density
    * URL in description with keyword (redirect url's work, like wpshorties or 301 via htaccess)
    * Add relevant tags, some long tail and some very direct and even one word keywords.
    * More videos in your channel not being promoted, but with similar niche keywords
    * Add a non focused video per week or so, keep the account active
    * Make sure the video is 1080p/HD
    * Add some closed captions with your keyword maybe once, even if no words in the video.
    * Sexy or attention grabbing thumbnail. Search for your keyword and see what others use as a thumbnail and do better
    * Share it via fb, twitter, stumble, pintrest, g+ on 1-4 accounts, or pay for this if you don't want to make accounts
    * Organic traffic trickles in and it explodes or crashes depending on user feedback. Good music or entertaining transitions help.


    Let the video sit for 2-6 days before blasting it. LET IT AGE. Best results if you do a web2rule or similar service to send 10-20 views a day BEFORE sending 1-3k RETENTION VIEWS and continue the 10-20 views after the blast even when organic traffic rolls in.

    Wow this a lot of good info here. I was just thinking, since I'm about to upload some videos to YT in a highly competitive niche how big of an impact adding 1,000,000 high retention views, couple thousand social bookmarks, shares, 50,000 likes, and a few thousand comments would have on my video. My channel does have around 15,000+ real subscribers and a I bought a little over 100,000. I'm kind of a noob when it comes to ranking videos. Would this work well?

    Thanks for sharing your tips, it might be useful for starters, but the [METHOD] looks way different, this is not a method it is just a tips gathered around the forum. Still a share..

    Well it's a method minus the money maker like the aff links or adwords. Going gentle seems to work. I may try to do this on a larger scale, gentle with several videos with similar but not exact keywords within the same channel.

    Okey sorry if i instuled you, dont want to overpost.

    The way i understand [METHOD] is posting the whole method of money making/creating something etc. from A to Z with an explanation giving some results (tips/solutions and offers) at the end which might be a proof of money made or product itelf. So i expected came here to see a full method from A to Z how you choose those keywords what programs and tips might be used to find the small competition keyword and all others tips explained by your own practice (dont get me wrong im not asking for spoonfeeding)... I think you got the main idea.

    This is what [METHOD] means for me, anyway thank you once again for sharing these tips.

    I guess that's just me being a n00b to the forums. Thanks for pointing it out.

    I've actually been wanting to try ranking youtube for a while now, but kept postponing it.
    I'm gonna give it a shot now, try to use all your tips, blast it with some UD links and see what happens.
    I did hear that it's easier to rank youtube so...
