I'm trying to grow a YouTube channel organically through SEO and keyword targetting. I'm aware of techniques for keyword research such as using YouTube's suggested bar (currently I use keywordtool.io). As well as using Semrush to analyze what keywords competitors are targetting.
Because each of my videos cost from $500-$1000 dollars to make, I'm very keen that this money is going down the drain without the right keyword targetting and optimization. And the tools mentioned above don't accurately assess the search volume of keywords at all.
So I figured the best way to test what titles and keywords are the best would be to actually take them to the YouTube battle grounds. So my question is, what are your thoughts on using YouTube's display ads to split test different related keywords before making each video?
Could I accurately predict the profitability of a video/keyword based on the performance of an ad?
Thanks in advance!
