How To Optimize YouTube Videos – YouTube Optimization Tips

How To Optimize YouTube Videos – YouTube Optimization Tips

Share on

Last week I had the privilege of speaking, along with Lane Shackleton of YouTube, at the Dallas Fort Worth Search Marketing Association. The topic was YouTube – why YouTube, and how to market YouTube videos, optimize YouTube videos, and advertise video content on YouTube so as to take full advantage of the opportunity that exists within YouTube. The following is my complete presentation from the event.

YouTube Optimization = Quality + SEO + Community

The best piece of advice that I can give for optimizing video on YouTube, is that, it is NOT about metadata and text alone. It is no longer enough to rely on titles, descriptions, and tags for getting videos ranked. This may still work for very long-tail keyword queries, but there are now many different YouTube ranking factors, both on-page and off-site.

YouTube optimization, especially for competitive keyword phrases – it is about a combination of 1) creating quality, compelling video content 2) publishing using SEO best practices, and 3) engaging with the community, both within as well as outside of YouTube.
