How To Increase Youtube Views?

Updated on March 15, 2010

What Youtube can Do For You?

Youtube is really a great medium to market your products and services even if you have not expertised in the field. Here are the few effective tips to increase your youtube views and ratings. 

Title of your video:

You need a catchy title to describe what is your video all about. Because, that's the only thing through which you can compel a normal surfer to visit or view the youtube video you have uploaded. There are situations like people have great tutorial and instructional videos in thier site but not rank well because of the absence of catchy title. So, if you don't have a catchy title, then your great efforts for the promotional video may go waste. Tile plays a vital role in driving traffic.

Thumbnail View of Your Video:

Just think from as you. It's simple to understand. Let me ask you one question. Do you have experiences where you got attracted by a thumbnail view of a video and then you got fooled as the real video inside is not relevant or related to the thumbnail view. If the scammers can do that, why can't you do that for a legit and honest purpose. So, just make use of the thumbnail view. No need to worry about the thumbnail view. Because, as soon as you upload your videos, you will get a series of thubmnail pics to select from.

Release an advanced version of an exisitng one :-

This is a really working technique. If you are able to upload a video that is actually a continuation of the already existing video, then you can really drive traffic. Because, people always love to hear from their dearest video uploaders who rocked with nice videos recently. Or if you are able to come up with an advanced version of an existing video, then also you have a great chance of mass recognition in Youtube. Example : If there exists a video called “Affiliate Marketing 2009”, then uploading a quality contented video with the label “Affiliate Marketing 2010” may help you to get massive traffic with in a short time.

Proper Tags :-

Inserting proper tags play a vital role in getting indexed by search engines most particularly during the situations of video search. So if you can provide your video with right tags inserted, then you have a better chance of being listed in the front of search results pages.

Social Networking and Bookmarking :

Now a days, most of the contents on the web are provided with one click buttons to share the content to numerous websites instantaneously. It exists in Youtube also. You can bookmark the videos or share it to places like facebook, Twitter, Digg and more. So if you do this regularly whenever you upload a video, you will get a lot of vistors in the very first day itself.

Chosing the right Category :

You have to chose the right category while uploading your video so that it may appear in the righ category during searches by youtube surfers and thus your video gain more relevancy.
