Special! YouTube tip for video reputation management
YouTube can be the single best way for you to monitor your video reputation. Here’s a straightforward way how to monitor most of the video out on the web with automated updates delivered directly to you.
First, have a keyword plan. Build a keyword list of your company, brands, and notable individuals representing your company.
Next, go to YouTube and type in each of these keywords or keyword phrases. You will see a list of most popular related keywords from the YouTube search box automatically appear, in order of descending popularity. Check these out as well to see what videos are appearing, and determine which of them are additional keywords you need to target as well.
- Tags : For example, if you wanted to create an RSS feed for the tag “monkey,” you would enter: feed://www.youtube.com/rss/tag/monkey.rss
- Users: feed://www.youtube.com/rss/user/[insert username here]/videos.rss
- For example, if you wanted to create an RSS feed for the user “YouTube,” you would enter: feed://www.youtube.com/rss/user/youtube/videos.rss
And finally, add each of these URLs to your newsreader. (But be aware that you will need to create a feed for each individual tag or user you wish to subscribe to.)
