Video upload sites

This has led to many bloggers, affilliates and webmasters to try and cheat by doing it the easy way. As we all know, there is no easy way of doing anything - it has to be right. When it comes to uploading videos never ever do what I'm about to show you. You don't have to look long before finding examples of the points I'm about to make.

Among the most popular video submission sites are:

Remember not to:

Rip off video and change first frames

  • Some people tend to use ripping software to download or rip popular videos from the popular sites and replace the introduction with their own custom intro. They then re-lable the video as their own. This can lead to bad ratings and can get your video removed or account banned.

Wrong Title

  • Other cheaters use wrong titles to drive users to watch their video. The user clicks to watch and end up seeing something totally different. This can be considered spam.

Bad description

  • Keywords are major factors when trying to gain a high position in any search results, With the aid of keyword tools such as Google Adwords keyword tool and Wordtracker, users find popular searches and trends and put it in the video description. Nothing is wrong with this practice if done correctly, you can't just copy and paste a bunch of popular keywords with no real description at all.

Copywrited material

  • Many people upload copywrited material without even thinking about it. The most popular examples are music videos. They drive alot of traffic and with no rights to the material, the big companies get cheesed off. If you do upload copywrited material, it will be removed sooner or later. Many people take chances with the excuse of local and international law, I advise to stay away from anything questionable. Its not worth the hassle and potential fines.

Stick to these tips and you surely will be successfull with uploading videos. Just remember that the overall quality will by far be the most judging factor. The more useful the video, the more people will watch!
