I found a really cool site full of great information on optimizing your videos for the search engines. Below I swiped content from Garry Przylenk’s blog post…
The YouTube algorithm relies on three signals when ranking your videos within YouTube’s search results:
- Text in your titles and descriptions.
- Number of views, and recent trending.
Here’s a checklist you can follow to optimize your videos in YouTube:
Title text: You have 99 characters to optimize your title text, so consider your target keywords and any other keywords you may want to rank for, but don’t forget including your branding and descriptive text. If you have little chance of getting that top spot, aim for second to boost views by proxy, related videos also get lots of views.
Description: You have 5,000 characters, which is a lot, so use all that space to write as much about your video as possible. Because user ratings and views play a factor in your search rankings within YouTube (and therefore Google), make sure to ask for people to rank your video, but also share and embed your video.
Tags: Useful for search terms you use in your title text and description, including names and branding.
Youtube Broadcasting and sharing options:
Privacy: Most marketers may set videos to private while working on them prior to an official launch date or campaign, just don’t forget to later set them to public.
Comments: It’s up to you whether you want to enable comments. Just remember: if you disable commenting, users will go elsewhere to talk about your video, your brand, or your message.
Video responses: These help boost views because they are automatically linked to your original.
Ratings: These have a direct impact on your rankings, so make sure you set this to “yes.”
Embedding: Blogs and social media shares really boost views, and help your message get to new audiences outside of YouTube, it’s a good idea to keep this enabled.
Syndication: Again, anything to boost your views will help your video rank higher in YouTube and Google, so keep this enabled.
