How To Rank Youtube Videos Fast 2017 – Video SEO

With over 6 billion hours of video viewed each month, YouTube is a powerful marketing platform that your business needs to utilize.

This shouldn’t come as news to you. I’m willing to bet that you have an account and you’ve probably marketed your business with some videos. I’m also willing to bet those videos didn’t get watched and you gave up on your efforts.

This is a common theme on YouTube. In fact, I’ve seen too many clients spend thousands curating great content that doesn’t get viewed so they abandon their efforts entirely.

The key to YouTube marketing is getting videos ranked in both Google and YouTube searches. This creates an automated flow of people finding your videos with valuable keywords related to your business.

YouTube is a search engine (2nd most used on the planet) so ranking your videos requires an understanding of how the algorithm functions.

As an SEO expert I have a good grasp of how Google’s algorithm works. Despite that knowledge it took me a lot of time, testing and patience to figure out YouTube’s.

This article provides you with 8 tips I’ve accumulated to help you get more views by ranking your videos higher in Google and YouTube.

When you upload this file to your YouTube account it will automatically pull through the raw file name. This is the same title that you want to use for your video’s title. NOTE: For the purpose of brevity, I didn’t get into keyword selection. This is a vital part of the ranking process. For more information on how to select keywords for your content, click here.

Tip #3: Video Description

First and foremost, add a link to your website. When I perform digital marketing audits I can’t tell you how many of my clients neglect to link to their website or landing page. While video views are great, YouTube is a merely a means to something larger. You videos should encourage viewers to an action. That action should be clicks to your website where you can finish the marketing process (i.e. lead capture, purchases, etc). So please, add links! In addition to links, you want to optimize the rest of your video description:

Make it unique! Don’t recycle content from all of your videos. Google HATES duplicate content and it will be held against you. Each of your videos are different and should be treated as such. Write a unique description for each of your videos.
Aim for at least 200 words.
Use synonym keywords throughout your description. For example, if your keywords are How to Rank YouTube Videos, synonym keywords would be How to rank YouTube videos in Google, Ranking videos in search engines, Yahoo video rank, etc.
Don’t use the same keywords twice – you will get slapped for keyword stuffing.
I generally write a transcript of the video. This can be time consuming, so I generally contract this out to freelancers on Fiverr.
Tip #4: Create a Playlist

Playlists are the final piece when uploading a new video. They add another layer of signals to tell YouTube what your video is about. For each of my videos I will create a new playlist with synonym keywords. Here is an example of tips 1 – 4 in action:

Keyword #1: How to rank YouTube videos
Keyword #2: Get More Views on YouTube Videos
Raw file name and video title: How to Rank YouTube Videos – Get More Views on YouTube Videos – Webris
Description: [Video transcript]. Synonym keywords included: ranking videos in YouTube, how to get more views on YouTube videos, YouTube marketing, video marketing, video SEO.
Playlist name: Video Marketing – YouTube Marketing – Ranking Videos in YouTube.
