Video SEOHow to Perform Video SEO

We all want to get our videos seen by as many people as possible, and the best way to do that is by utilizing what has become known as Video SEO. The truth of the matter is, it’s really not all that hard to get first page rankings for your videos if you stick to the basics, and soon be reaping the benefits that a page one ranking in YouTube or Google (or both!) brings.

Toward this goal let’s look at 5 tips for Video SEO you may not yet be using.

5 Tips for effective Video SEO

Making a good video – Good videos are probably the best video SEO you can do, and the benefits of having a video that is popular are immense. Endeavor to put your best foot forward here, and the rest might take care of itself.

Do keyword research – If you want to rank for a specific keyword, you’ll need to do your research to ensure that you are targeting the best phrases you can. This will allow you to find other keywords you can use in your description, tags and other videos as well.

Optimize your YouTube listing – Don’t forget to take the time to optimize your YouTube listing. This involves making sure your primary keyword is in your title, tags, description and filename. Also, have a 300-500 word description, making sure any link you’d like people to visit is at the beginning.

Get social signals – A major part of ranking videos these days is the presence of social signals. Shares, views, embeds, channel subscribes and comments all play a large part in where your video winds up. Do not artificially inflate these with fake views and comments, as these are easily discovered and will not help your cause.

Get links – Oftentimes you will not need to do this last step, if you have done the previous ones, but in the case of hard to rank for keywords, you might need to build backlinks to your video. Again, try to do this organically and not artificially, or it might have the opposite effect of what you’ve wanted.
