Simple tips to get traffic from Youtube

Updated on July 6, 2012


Youtube and videos are synonym to each other. The first thing that strikes our minds when we hear the word "Youtube" will always be videos.

Youtube is one of the most popular sites on the internet. It receives millions and billions of visitors everyday which makes it one of the best places to market a website.

The best way to get traffic from youtube is to post videos on youtube similar to the topic of your website. The best part of youtube is that it is absolutely free and provides tons of traffic to its videos.

Post Viral Videos

Youtube has millions and millions of videos and the numbers are increasing every minute. But not all videos get their required response from Youtube. There are tons of videos lying in the Youtube server waiting for any audience.

So the best thing is to stand out in the crowd. People like useful videos. Videos which solve their problems or answer their questions. So the best thing is to post useful videos or if possible viral videos.

Once a video becomes viral, people start to promote it for you and the only thing left for you is to reap the benefits.

Give your videos Eye catching titles

Your title is the first thing that people see. Many great videos remain unnoticed because their titles are not able to interest the audience.

Use provocative titles. One which excites people. Use keywords which convey your message but don't use too competitive ones.

Put your URL

Remember your main goal is to gain traffic, so don't waste any chance to showcase your url. The best place to show your url is in the videos itself. Add a picture in the video at the end which shows for ten seconds. It contains your url and any other thing you want to tell the viewer.

Also add your url in the description section.

Complete your profile

Youtube like most websites allow you to add your personal information in the profile section. Never leave your profile section empty.

When people likes your videos they may check out your profile. A good profile packed with interesting info can have a positive impression while a bad one can make your viewer have a bad opinion ruining all the great work your video did.

Optimizing your videos

Optimizing your videos is vital just as optimizing your websites. Add keywords with high demand and low competition in your title and description.

Google loves videos and since youtube is owned by youtube itself, therefore it pays high regard to youtube videos.


Youtube is an amazing traffic generating tool. Follow these tips to get your slice of Youtube traffic.

      The cross marketing to your website is key and often forgotten about.

      YouTube is my next frontier-very helpful information. Wish me luck in this foreign land for me-hopefully HubPages has trained me well.

      Thank you very much!
