YouTube video marketing. Keywords

See also

There are many reasons to use YouTube for internet marketing. Video is the greatest promotion tool on the net. You can leverage the power of video to get people’s attention and win customers and fans. This week I am focusing on helping you get more views and subscribers to help build your fan base.

On the topic of Keywords, you’ll see when you go to upload your video, a field where you can add tags or keywords.

These are also used to find and list your video in the search results when a user goes to search.

So again, you’ll want to add as many relevant keywords in here that you want. You don’t need to go overboard here.

A good number is about 5 to 10 keywords. Anything more than that and you’ll look spammy.

Youtube tells you that you can separate your tags with spaces. For example, if you type in the tags field like this: play soccer garden square stadium; you will get 5 different keywords.

1. play

2. soccer

3. garden

4. square

5. stadium

But what if your keyword is more than one word.. or a string of words?

e.g. “garden square stadium”

Here’s a trick to get a multi-word keyword show up as a single keyword.

If you type your keywords between quote marks, like this: “twitter marketing” “make money” “mlm lead system”; then you’ll get groups of words that will end up as single multi-word tags.

This whole thing about “keywords” and “tags” and getting your video to show up in the top of the search engines (youtube and google) is related to the big picture of internet marketing and SEO (search engine optimization).
