    Well the obvious things are doing the correct tagging of the videos in yt, make good descriptions with your targeted keywords etc. G+ also can help for visibility. If your content is good, share on reddit and stumble upon. You could also approach bloggers n your niche about a guest post, maybe they'll be happy to share some good content.

      Yeah, i'm planning for sharing articles on various blogs. Also, i have one question.

      1. If i create backlinks from various forums, yahoo answers, reddits and other video related sites then, it will be beneficial? Means that are no follow links but, is it still working?

      Also, i recommended my all friends and social friends to subscribe my channel and i achive 400 Subscriber in 4 days. Is it ok for new channel. Also, i searched my video on youtube search engine, and sometime i found my video on first page or some time second page. It is so complicated.

      ALso, how many backlinks are enough for idea video marketing? i generated 4 backlink on my first video.

      ON CONTENT PURPOSE,

      I already hired content writer and voice over artist to do my work. I can easily make videos so. i will do video creation job by myself.

        I've studied YouTube videos as I research everything inside and out. One thing I have learned is post good videos that are helpful with actionable advice.

        Yes, this may sound cliche, but when it comes to Video you can't really just fake it. People nowadays will easily click off your video and find another video.

        People are busy with their lives and have no patience or loyalty to whatever your preaching.

        So you better be making the best video you can and over delivering every time. Make your video so good that they will feel silly for not watching the whole video.

    Having a facebook fanpage for your youtube account is extremely important, I also recommend using twitter and promoting your last uploaded video during the time when you're not uploading, then you upload a new video and you start promoting that one, use good exposure hashtags for the good effect (google ritetag).

    Ditch the computer voice asap. I don't recommend using voice over actor, don't try to make the videos too formal and professional, it's youtube, no one cares about that. Make them entertaining, record your own videos/reviews, show your personality in every video, people are drawn to that, they will NOT be drawn to professional, formal and boring videos. Check channels like elliottsaidwhat or Julienhimself(he makes book reviews videos and is a life development/pickup coach), learn from them. Half of the success on youtube is getting your point across in an entertaining way and showing character. If you're charismatic you'll make a killing on youtube.

    Study other channels, don't copy them, just learn from them. Use your own personality and style for your videos.

    And no, I'm a "youtube expert" or an experienced youtuber, but I've seen a lot of successful youtube channels and studied both their owners, their personality, style and their audience. I know why they have a lot of subscribers, why are their channels growing and why are people drawn to their videos.
    I haven't seen a single popular channel that uses computer generated voice or voice actors in their videos. Your channel is your identity, voice actors wont give you that, not in the long run.

      Gooroo your advice is very helpful for me and specially I've one problem with my voice, i can't able to speak well in English language. Also, sometime some words seems non understandable because of bad English word pronunciation. Thats why i can't use my voice. But, i am continuously trying to improve my pronunciation problem. Also, i'll follow your tips and experienced thoughts for my YouTube journey.

      Yeah, Good tips. I've some confusion. If i have 2 to 5 min long video then, how many tags should i use for healthy YouTube SEO. I've seen people get issue with using lots of tags. But, i'm using 5 to 8 tags for 2 to 5 min long video. Is it ok. Also, my keyword is healthy relevant to my video.

        The best study I've read says you should have 17-19 tags, but that was a couple of years ago. My own advice is to mix it up, using anywhere from 2 or 3 to more than 20, with 17-19 being the "mean" until you have enough info to make an educated decision of your own.

        The real key to success on YT is having a number of videos. Some will "hit" and some will "miss". A good amount of decent-quality videos allows you to use a wider assortment of keywords. You can add playlists also, as they can and do rank in YT, and will allow you to expand your keyword base. You can also make multiple videos from longer videos as well as a longer video from shorter videos to expand your potential keywords.

        I like to "borrow" the tags from either the highest ranking videos for a particular keyword or from the "suggested" videos on a popular video page about a topic similar to my video's.

        Also, if a video isn't ranking, change the keywords in the title, description and tags. Add more tags or remove some. While YT generally ranks videos pretty quickly, modifications to a video can take 2-3 weeks for YT to take into account, so be patient. If after a few weeks and you still don't see an increase in ranking and/or views, change them again.

        I suggest you set up IFTTT to automatically post videos to a network of social sites. Then use social media marketing and SEO strategies to promote those social accounts.

          Well, I've seen many youtubers are still using lots of tags. But, i think about following strategy. Give your opinion on it.

          Video Title - How To Start A Business in India - Step By Step.
          So, My keyword is "How to start a business in india" = 2000 monthly searches.

          As per my thinking i use only these tags. "start a business in india" / "how to start a business in india" / "start a business" / "business" / "india"

          Is it enough or i need to use more relevant tags.

          According to Number of Videos


          How many videos per week or months i need to publish on my channel? Please give me your opinion. My limit is "max 10" whats your suggestion?

          Also, i'll plan for making parts of long videos. but, it will be done in future after few video uploaded with quality. Currently my content writer is writing video script.

          Can you suggest me any free or premium software for social and video marketing? Also, i'll use IFTTT from today.

          What do you have knowledge about backlink !!!

    PS...on a side note, I was checking out Facebook's "Topics to Watch" for trends and it shows "Educational Entertainment" to be a good pick for future growth. You may want to due some research and make some videos relating to educational entertainment.

    Don't wait for keyword research. Research is stuff that happened in the past. Sometimes you need to use a little bit of speculation and anticipate what will happen in the future.

    I was going to suggest focusing on INTERVIEWS. Most of the entrepreneurs you would interview would probably share it with their followers/fans/subscribers and that would generate great numbers for you.

    But after reading that you are "English Challenged" I would suggest you create an environment where you just let your invited experts give a presentation on their own and your channel and website become a sort of educational authority site always adding new experts and fresh content. OK just a thought.

    I like your brand "EducatedEdge".

    But do not waste a single visitor to the website. Get an opt in freebie list builder up soon as you can my friend.

    Title: make sure your main keyword is in the title
    Description: always put your url first so viewers can easily find you
    Tags: Use the main keyword you are targeting for this video only. Youtube favors keywords that match exactly with searched word
    Thumbnail: choose the pic that you think will capture most peoples attention when they are going through youtube videos
    Publish: Add Text on the Video: (annotations) - have call to action telling them to click on your url link below or put your website or both

    Hi,

    1. Look at what OTHER successful YouTube marketers are doing in your
    niche right now.

    2. I have over 100+ videos on my channel and what I've found over
    these past few months is that once you BUILD up to a tipping point
    with the amount of useful and insightful videos you have on your
    channel...

    ...Your audience will naturally begin to grow on it's own.

    3. Its all about momentum and keeping up that momentum once you
    reach a level where people are sharing, liking, subscribing to your
    channel etc...

    4. THEY need to believe that it's YOU who they are looking for to
    help them reach their goals, dreams, desires etc.

    5. All this talk of tagging, naming your videos etc isn't as important
    as getting yourself out there and established as a well trusted brand
    that can HELP people to achieve results.

    That's it!

    People just want something. And YOU have to give it to them.

    Keep it simple.

    I would like to add that I would recommend you start creating videos
    with YOU talking on them rather then just relying on voice overs etc
    too.

    People want to know they're dealing with a REAL person.

    Not some bot helper robot.

    Okay hope this helps.

    You were BORN for success, so allow yourself to be a SUCCESS!

    Gavin

      You do make some good points. However, concerning tags I gave a direct answer to a direct question.


      On a related note, ranking isn't the number one way YT videos get views. The number one source of views is being listed as a related video on the video view pages of popular videos.


      And the number one factor for both ranking and being listed as a related video is session watch time, followed by viewer retention. Titles and tags have more to do with relevancy than ranking.


      Also, I suggest forgetting about asking people to like and comment. Instead, focus on getting people to subscribe to your channel. Subscribers will naturally increase your views and they will also like and comment. Don't give viewers too much to do. Add a "subscribe" link directly in your video using annotations and cards to make it as simple and obvious as possible to subscribe.

    I've been using YouTube since they started out and some of my videos have 100,000 plus views.
    I've done no promotion at all.
    Some videos are not even optimised & my early efforts had poor quality & sound yet the view count is huge.
    What I did was create my videos in a subject which people really want to learn from.
    I had no joy at all with internet marketing topic videos.
    I can say that it is a waiting game and you need to be patient.
    It may take a year before your videos really kick in.
    Create quality videos that give value.

    4. Save every video you create with the main keyword you want to rank for
    5. Make sure you add your main keywords in your title and description
    6. Create a playlist for your video and add other top related videos in your playlist
    7. Add your Youtube video url to the description of your video
    8. Add your social media links (Optional)
    9. Add a strong wiki link to the description of your video. Make sure is niche related.
    10. Share your video is all major social network sites for more exposure
    11. Create quality backlinks to your videos
    12. Connect with top video marketer in your niche etc

    This is just the one I can remember right now..I could do more...

    Hope this helps..

    The suggestions already given have been great. Youtube is a great Traffic source indeed, and if you are promoting something as well, then you could make some good money provided you don't overdue it. Also something extremely important is that you follow the community guidelines when it comes to something internet marketing related as youtube could be quick to terminate your account. Just make sure your videos don't appear scammy, and you don't use anything copyrighted. Apart from that I hope you achieve the success you desire!

    Hope this helps!

    1. Consistency.
    2. Do proper keyword research so you know what keywords people are searching for and which are easy to rank
    3. Send backlinks to the video to help it rank

    I know a couple more but those should be enough for now.

    I have found that Google changed their algorithm to get rid of junk videos that were clogging up the scenes. What they want now are quality mini movies. People will not watch a 30 second ad to see a 15 sec clip so have movies that are 5 minutes or more. Place really exciting content to keep your viewers. Google do not like a video that people leave after six secs. Oh yes, that is a bad sign.

    Try to make the video speak to what your audience needs and provide value to your viewers. Friends, we must entertain the masses. BTW, what was OK in the 90's is not OK now. Make sure that the video is high res. For example, get a good 4K camera. Also, get a good pro mic. People expect quality sound now.
