    I have this video that is ranking for a 4 words keyphrase. I'm starting to think that it's too longtail.
    If I want to try something less specific, is best to record a new video or can I just change the title and description?
    I'm using this method for ranking:

    I think that you should record a new video because if you modify the description and keywords you can dance from your actual positions.

    Ok, fortunately I didn't change anything, the keywords were right and the traffic is coming.

    If you want to target more keywords with the same video usually adding extra tags and an extended description can sometimes help do the trick.

    Yes changing title will alter the video ranking.

    Change the title at your own risk.

    It can take a long time to re-rank for the new keyword- if at all.

    Normally the pro's do not outweigh the con's!
