In adition to traditional SEO strategies there are some things unique to the Youtube platform itself you want to do. In this Hub we'll tell you how to get your Youtube videos optimized so you can get more viewers. If you have good content the more viewers who see your videos the more they will get shared, liked, and subscribed to.


There is onsite optimization as well as offsite optimization. For onsite optimization you want to make sure you have your keywords in Your video title as well as your video description. Having a longer description as opposed to just copying and pasting your title into the description box is extremely important as well. Lastly but most importantly you want to make good use of the keyword box or tags section at the bottom of your video editing page. This is one of the most important if not the most important element.

As for offsite optimization it's pretty similar to traditional SEO. Backlinks are important.
