1. Upload Frequently
2. Video Quality
3. Titles, Tags and Descriptions

These are the main tips you need to follow if you want to optimize YouTube.

Arrow and more....

a good approach is to put your video in as many different locations as possible,

that is: create multipe videos around same theme(different areas) -- also, don't try giving yourself creditability(smaller hits), as much as, the end result you offer(jeans equal lots of hits), FYI

Default Optimizing YouTube Videos


SEO for YouTube is largely the same as for a webpage. The basics are:

Use your main keyword in your video title.
Use your main keyword(s) in your video description.
Use your main keywords in your tags.

For using your videos to promote your website, make sure to use the full URL (example: http://www.yourwebsite.com) in the description. Also put some kind of offer to direct people to your site for more information, a free bonus, etc. in the description, and in the video itself.

With regards to linking, you'll want to link to your video with keywords in the anchor text from as many different web pages as possible, including your website. You can link from forum and blog posts, online articles you've posted, and/or by using link-building services.

Good luck!

Sure optimization in several places is very effective step. But what is the guarantee of such manipulations with youtube profile?

Also paste youtube video to your blog or website and put keywords near video.
It should help.

Yes, you can increase benefits from video marketing. You don't need to use only youtube even there is hundreds of video sharing sites where you can share or upload your videos.

To Optimize your videos follow simple these steps :

1) knowing your main keywords
2) put your main keywords on Title, Description and tags,
3) your video quality should be good
4) put a link in description so that for more information user can visit on main website.
5) upload videos frequently to that your subscribers will be start increasing.

Find similar channels and keep yours updated. Make sure you upload new videos on a regular basis and that these videos are tagged with different keywords than the existing ones. For each new video, add one or two keywords which are but indirectly related to the topic, to ensure variety and diversity altogether. Apart from this, do what any regular social media website asks you to: share, connect, discuss, invite, and share more.

Categorizing your videos, proper keywords, linking to every possible site, and commenting on other videos especially those videos who have many viewers will give you that optimized feeling.

Staying relevant as in uploading on the regular is essential. Remember, if your cell phone is outdated in 8 months, then your youtube videos and website can go just that much more quickly into the pit of the forgotten. Think about websites you looked at 5 years ago, if they haven't evolved constantly, they are most likely gone from collective internet memory.
