The video content should be completely original.
Short and precise videos ( 5 - 7 minutes) hold viewers attention better, although you can upload upto 15 minutes of video content.
Pick on content that stays fresh for all time. Tutorials and how-tos are a good bet.
Make sure the title is interesting-definitely not misleading.
Add as many tags as possible, since this brings you relevant traffic.
Use annotations,etc to make it more interesting.
Always place your website link in the description so as to lead viewers to your website. This is the easiest way to generate traffic to your blog or website.
Enable comments and video responses. This will bring you further traffic.
Earning From Your Youtube Videos

All countries are not accepted either. And you must comply with the youtube terms of service. But, there are other ways to use these videos to earn you some money.
Earning From Google Adsense : Placing Google ads on your video helps you earn revenue out of it. You earn two ways from Google adsense. Those played at the bottom and alongside your videos and those on your blog or website to which the traffic is flowing. This is for those inducted into the partner program only.
Rent your videos for streaming.
Earning From Affiliate Programs : Make videos selling affiliate programs giving your affiliate link at the end. When viewers click these, you make some money.
Sell Online Products : Amazon products or a book can be reviewed in the video and your amazon associate link on the video will generate leads. Alternately, tie up with local businesses to help sell their products through your videos.
Embedded Players : Your videos can be embedded in other people's blogs leading to a further earning, due to increased views.
