So you have a YouTube channel! That’s great. But are you not able to improve the number of viewers? Well, it is frustrating indeed! Are you looking for ways to increase the views or searching for ways to optimize it?
Bingo! You are on the right page.
Here we will discover the three ways that can help you to improve the number of viewers of the YouTube video content.
So, let’s get started
Rule Number 1: Do not forget to add the location to your videos
Are you thinking why? Well, adding the location on each and every video helps in making the videos searchable to the local viewers. Therefore, you are going to get genuine views. Rather than focusing on getting 10,000 views, you can focus more into getting 100 genuine views as it will further help to grow your business.
How to do it? Well, in order to add location on the existing videos, you need to visit YouTube Video Manager > Edit (just next to the video). Now just beneath the video, click Advanced Settings > Type your location and you are geographically searchable to your local viewers.
Rule Number 2: Optimize the Video Title and the description keeping in mind about the character counts
This is another simplest way to optimize the YouTube videos. All you need is to make sure that the descriptions and title of the video are written to reach the goal. Not only it needs to convey the right message but also character count plays a huge role.
Don’t forget to write a great video description. Treat it like a king as this gives an opportunity to increase the views. Moreover, YouTube checks both the title and description for the relevant terms based on which they rank the videos.
You can add over 100 words in the description, but you need to keep in mind that only the first two lines are visible to the viewers. Hence, your message needs to be conveyed to the viewers in the first two lines in order to get a good number of viewers.
YouTube gives you the right to add title that is upto 100 characters long. But it is always suggested to make it less than 70 characters. The best would be if you are able to put a catchy title which has just 50 characters.
Here are the ticks that will help to write catchy titles:
- You can emphasize on long tail keywords
- You can ask questions to the viewers
- You can write the title in a way that it seems like a solution
- Write the title like a case study
- You can use numbers like top 5
Don’t forget to use your creativity. Keep experimenting with video titles.
