Video SEO – How To Rank Videos In Google and YouTube


Today we’re going to show you everything you
need to know. Get your video’s ranked in Google and YouTube. So, stay tuned. If you’re watching
this video, you probably already know that video is a very powerful tool for your business.
But the problem is that most people don’t see results because their video’s never get
seen. And refresh. Hey hows it going? Hey what’s up. Yeah it’s going good. I just got
done uploading this video and I already have 20 views. No you didn’t. I was just upstairs
and I watched your video 20 times. What? You mean I’ve been working on this video and no
ones even watching it? Well did you even optimize it? No. No? Why not? I mean I didn’t even
know. Trust me, I’ve been in that situation before and it’s not fun. So, to help you out,
I’m going to show you my 9 step formula to get your videos ranked on the first page of
Google and YouTube. So, let’s start off with step number one, which is finding the perfect
keyword keyword for your video. One of the biggest mistakes that most people make is
they just create video’s on any topic that pops into their head. What you should be doing
is creating video’s based on what people are actually searching for. What are you looking
for? Bathing suit? What type of bathing suit? Swimming briefs. So instead of just randomly
guessing what people are looking for, you can actually find the specific keywords that
people are looking for. And you can do this with the Google keyword tool, but just make
sure the exact option is chosen when you’re looking for your keywords. After you find
your keyword we move on to step number 2, which is adding your keyword in your video
script. Not every bathing suit is treated equally. At MaleSwimmingBriefs.com, we want
to show you the widest variety of male swimming briefs possible. So come on, visit us at maleswimmingbriefs.com,
come get your swim on. I mean come on. Look at me. Did I really just put that in the video?
Well I guess it’s a good thing I did because that video was a perfect example of using
your keyword in the video. We ended up using our keyword ‘swimming briefs’, 3 times int
hat short 30 second video. Now when you’re implementing this step, you need to be careful
not to just list a bunch of keywords, but make sure your script actually flows. Now
step number 3 is to upload your video but make sure your keyword is your file name.
So in this case our video file name is going to be swimming briefs.mp4. And this just allows
us to tell Google and YouTube what our video is all about. And now we move onto step number
4 which is putting in a proper title and description. Every title should begin with your main keyword
and then you can add in a secondary keyword, or more information about your video. The
more text you have associated with your video the better. Which is why the description is
so important. Every video should be a minimum of 200 words, but I recommend between 200
and 400. The more, the better. Don’t forget to add all of your keywords, different keyword
variations and secondary keywords in your description. But make sure you don’t just
list a bunch of keywords, you want to make sure they actually flow. Don’t forget to add
your landing page or your website URL at the top of your description so that it’s easily
seen. But you can also add in your video URL at the bottom of the description, and you
can also add in a link to your channel. And now we move onto step number 5, which is adding
in your tags. The biggest thing to remember is to not go overboard. Tags tags tags tags
tags tags tags. That was annoying right? Well Google and YouTube find it annoying when you
add in a ton of tags because it’s very hard for them to determine exactly what your video
is all about. All you really need to do is just put in your main keywords and your channel
name. When you put in your channel name, all of your videos will be lumped together in
the related video’s field. And now we move onto step number 6, which is uploading a transcript
of your video. And you can upload one under the captions tab of your video. So a transcript
is just a word for word description of the audio in your video. And this is a huge indicator
to Google and YouTube, telling them exactly what your video is all about. And I never
recommend skipping this step because it’s very important to getting your video ranked
and it only takes a few minutes, especially if you outsource it. Now this is everything
you need to do to get your video uploaded correctly, but if you stop here you may only
get a trickle of views and your YouTube channel could be a ghost town. But the next few steps
we’re going to show you how to get a flood of traffic to your videos. And now we’re moving
right along to step number 7, which is building your channel and using playlists. So the stronger
your channel is, the easier it’s going to be for you to rank videos. And there are 5
things that you can do to increase the power behind your channel. You can get more real
views, you can get more real subscribers, you can get more real comments and likes on
your videos, you can build back links to your channel, and you can stay active. Think of
it this way. If cnn.com wrote an article on video marketing, and then I setup a website
and 2 days later I wrote an article about video marketing, who do you think Google is
going to rank higher? Of course they’re going to rank CNN’s article higher. They’re a huge
site, they’re consistent, they’re always uploading content, they always have a bunch of comments
on their articles, they’re a very powerful website. And the same process goes with YouTube
channels. The more active and powerful a channel is, the higher and easier your videos are
going to get ranked. And this is because they see you as a trusted authority. And the second
part to step 7 is using playlists. All you need to do is create playlists using your
main keyword, and then throw your video’s in that playlist. YouTube’s going to realize
that they’re in a playlist with your main keyword, and they’re going to give a little
bit more weight to that video. And now we move on to step number 8, which is getting
more social indicators. Social indicators are quickly becoming an important ranking
factor to your video. Things like Facebook likes, twitter shares, Google pluses, and
pins are extremely important for your video. And of all the Google algorithm changes going
on lately, I strongly recommend you focus a lot of your time on social indicators. There’s
a few ways you can do this. You can obviously post it on your profiles. So if you have a
Facebook profile, a pinterest board or a Twitter profile, go ahead, upload your video’s there
and share it with your audience. But when you do that, you should always encourage them
to hit the like and share buttons, so you can maximize the amount of social indicators
from one post. And there’s also one technique that I love to use because it is super effective
to get organic social indicators. And this is my viral video marketing technique. And
I do have a video explaining the viral video marketing technique and you can get it at
the end of this video. So don’t click it now. Don’t, don’t click. Now we’re moving on to
step number 9 which is getting back links and embeds. The more websites you have linking
to your video and embedding your video, the more powerful your video becomes. But you
need to be very careful because building spammy back links, getting spammy embeds, and building
too many back links too fast, can negative affects on your video. And I also like to
get a wide range of back links to my videos. So this includes things like social bookmarks,
article marketing, web 2.0’s, and wikis. And you can even through in some document sharing
sites like slideshare.net. So there you have it, those are the 9 steps you need to get
your videos ranked in Google and YouTube. And I know this is a lot of information for
you to take in and for this reason I actually put together some free training for everyone
