Youtube Keyword Research?

4 replies
Hey, guys. I do promotion on Youtube and I was wondering if there is a keyword tool that helps you know what video keywords people are searching for. Is there any way to find out that information?

    Hey Mr Million

    Another Osaka Warrior. We're getting to be quite the group here. Time for an Osaka Warrior Meeting.

    As for your question, I use Wordtracker. There's a free one at Free Keyword Suggestion Tool From Wordtracker but I prefer the paid version.

    Right, oops! OK. The one way to do that at You Tube is to use their Insight tool. However, you can only do that with your own videos. Go to My Videos and click the Insight button beside your videos. Works best with videos that have had a good number of views.

      Thanks for the replies, guys. Yeah, I mean something like Google trends, or something like Wordtracker that tells me what keywords are being searched for specifically on the youtube site. Do you guys usually assume that the keywords searched for will be pretty much the same ones as the ones searched for on Google?

      So far I've just been looking for the most popular videos on certain topics and copying their tags to take a piece of their traffic. But I don't know if that's the best approach for getting a lot of views on Youtube.

      Kevin -- good to see another Osakan here. We've probably crossed paths around town.
