Amazing statistics, right? Any digital marketer cannot miss this ‘gold-mine, giving the best revenue’ platform for showcasing their brand services or products.

Since YouTube is a part of Google, every video is integrated into Google search results. No matter, how Facebook live videos or Instagram live videos go viral, YouTube is above all.

So, are you among those who have prepared a remarkable script, implemented it efficiently and are about to post it on your YouTube channel? Yes? But, are you sure you are going to get ‘views’?


Well, no one is sure about getting views! People are uploading 500 hours of video every minute, so the competition is fierce out there for brands and content creators.

This is where YouTube SEO gets into action. It not only increases the number of views exponentially but you will have steady growth in YouTube marketing.


What is YouTube SEO?

YouTube SEO is the process that involves optimizing video content, playlists, your channel, metadata, and description. This will help the video to rank high in YouTube's organic search results for a given keyword or a search query. This process of optimizing video for search can be done from within as well as from outside of YouTube.

All we have to do is keep the key component in focus, i.e., controlling the power of video's text in the form of transcripts, closed captions, and subtitles.

YouTube is the best way to rank higher on the SERP’s and so you should take the maximum benefit from it.

Interested? Let’s begin:

  1. YouTube Keyword research:

The key tactic is to find and use the best video related keywords, otherwise, you won't be ranked on the YouTube search page as well as Google search page.

How to search the best keywords?

  1. Generate a list of keywords:

Our mission is to find potential keywords! And, here's how you can find the best ones:

You can use YouTube's search 'suggest feature'. All you need to do is go to the search tab and type a word related to the video content you are going to upload.

As you type the words, you will be able to see the suggested words in the dropdown.

suggested words

This feature is called ‘YouTube autocomplete’. This is actually YouTube giving you an idea about what terms are used by people to search for a video.

These autocomplete suggestions are the best way to optimize your videos!

Another trick is to search for a video of your niche and copy the keywords provided by a popular video that has the maximum views and likes. Because they have brushed it up with SEO.

For this, you have to search the video (Popular one) under your niche and check out the keywords that are used in its title, description and video tags. Note it down in a list and use a tool to search for different variations of all of them.


  1. Competitor’s analysis:

Search for the top competitor’s channel and look for the video that he/she has uploaded under your ‘set niche’. You can then view the number of views and number of likes, and accordingly analyze.

All you have to do is:

  • Head over to the Options bar and tap on the 'Popular' videos to sort it out. This will show the most viewed videos.
  • Peek at the keywords used in the video’s title and description.
  • Delve deep into the page source to find out about the tags by pressing ctrl + F and searching ‘Keywords’.
  1. Publish engaging videos:

Audience interaction is one of the most important base used by YouTube’s algorithm.”

The next thing that you can do is publish high-retention videos! If people are engaged in your video, Google will put you up on the search page. YouTube relies on audience retention, so you need to put up interesting, engaging and useful content.

The keyword optimization won't be useful if it is not up to the interest of the audience.

Other factors that affect the video's ranking:

  • Video comments: Good/bad comments are captured by YouTube and help in the ranking process.
  • Subscribing: If someone subscribes to your channel, it is the best review ever! This is also noticed by YouTube, so ask your viewers to subscribe to your channel.
  • Video shares: If people are sharing your videos on different social media platforms, it is a win-win for you, because the YouTube algorithm will consider this while ranking.
  • Click-through rates: It is defined by how many people click on your video after searching for a particular keyword. If they ignore your video, the CTR will drop down, otherwise, it will go up and help you rank.
  • Video length: If you think, shorter videos win the race? Then, you are probably wrong! YouTube ranks longer videos on top.
  1. Video optimization:

As YouTube nowadays directly transcribes the video, it is advised that you say keywords in your video. So, if you mention the keywords, then you’ll be noticed by YouTube and it will rank you.

Secondly, you should always optimize the title! The ideal title should be at least 5 words long. So, you can include the full keyword that has the most searched volume.

Thirdly, the description written at the bottom of all the videos has to target the keywords. You can follow the steps below:

  • Make the description of at least 250 words.
  • Include keywords in the first 25 words.
  • Make sure the density of a keyword is between 2-3%.

Fourth and the last is to use tags! It will help you rank best for your set targeted keyword. Even if you use the same tag as your competitor or the one that is used immensely by everyone, it will help you get through the sidebar of a similar video.

  1. Promote your video:

Though you have used all the targeted keywords and tricks on your video, it doesn't mean that you don't have to promote it. You must embed the videos in your blog post or post it on social media like Instagram, Twitter, Facebook.

This was all about how to rank higher on YouTube. Buck-up your video marketing game by firstly optimizing your content on YouTube, use the above-mentioned tips.
