Hello BHW,

Today, I will share a tutorial to optimize your Youtube video and make it SEO friendly. This will help in ranking and boosting your video on Youtube and Google search engine.

YouTube Video Optimization


Title: Giving a proper title to your YouTube video plays a crucial part in terms of SEO. With a proper optimized title, it is much easier to rank a video. To optimize your title, you need to add your main keyword at the very first and possibly at the end. Try to minimize the use of unrelated keywords.

Example: If you are promoting "Papa John's Coupon Code" as a niche then your title should be something like "Papa John's Private Coupon Codes Giveaway 2013 - Updated Daily" or if your niche is some generator then it should be like - "XXXX Generator - Updated 2013 - PC and Mac XXXX Generator". Sometime, the multi use of same keyword can be marked as spam in YT's eye. So, it is best to edit the title a bit and change the keyword where necessary. Like, "Diablo III Gold Generator - Updated 2013 Gold Generator - PC and Mac". However, just to be on the safe side, use the main keyword once (at the first) in the title. I suggest that if you have a chance of losing access to your account, then always add "Updated (YEAR)" format and not in "Updated (month) (year)" format.

Description: I highly suggest that you follow this format when posting the description -

[Video Title] (Simply copy paste the video title at the very first)

[Download/Website link with keyword]

[A 300~400 words long article related to the niche. Remember to use your main keyword multiple time in various way.]

[Conclusion] (Write down thanks for watching and blablabla)

[XXXX brought to you by (website/download link)]

[Video URL]

I have personally tested and I can confirm that this format is extremely SEO friendly and will surely enhance your video's ranking ability. The article is a crucial part of the description as it attracts web spiders and help you get ranked on your niche. The video URL at the bottom is necessary because many web bots sometimes copy-paste your video description in some directory. So, you get auto-back-links if your video URL is on the description. I highly suggest you do not spam keywords with "Extra Tags" stuff as it hurts SEO a lot, considering YT has improved their ranking system quite a lot in the past few months.

Example:

Diablo III Gold Generator - Working as of August, 2013

Tags: Tags doesn't play any major role on SEO after YT changed their ranking system. However, I still insist that you add main keywords in various forms as tags.

Annotations: I suggest you add one annotations which will be visible for the entire video and it should be in this format [(Video Keyword) - Check description for links]. YouTube spiders do check annotations and adding keyword in it will surely help in ranking.

Example: Diablo III Gold Generator - Check Descriptions for Download Link

Captions: Simply add you main keyword in various forms as captions. YouTube bots do check captions and similar to annotations, you will get higher ranking for adding keyword oriented captions.

Channel Name: Niche keyword oriented channel name is extremely helpful for YouTube SEO. This is highly recommended.

ENJOY!! :cool:

Interesting tutorial, thank you for your share.

I am actually trying to rank several music videos, and I am still looking for the best way to handle titles... would you suggest to put very popular names in titles? For example, would be advisable to use a title like "Eric Clapton's Cocaine Cover by My Name" ?? Is it going to break rules?

Thanks for your opinion.
 
Solid guide, though I'm really not sure if the 300-400 words make a difference at all. In my findings they don't. The outbound link obviously does, but I put the bare URL and not the keyword. Still good results..
