I'm looking into YouTube video creation to start building passive traffic streams..
I know there's onsite and offsite YouTube Video SEO that you need to take into account, so there are couple cool tricks I've come across:
01. Search a generic term for your niche, sort videos by most traffic and find one with THOUSANDS of views. Then use Google Chrome Extension for VidIQ to see all the tags that person used for the video.
02. EMBED videos into a blogger blog to rank better. Apparently, embedding is a very powerful way to backlink that gets great ranking results.
03. Use your email subscriber list to dump views into your video, to help it rank quickly.
But I'm wondering...any other thoughts or tricks & tips you've come across that you recommend for ranking a YouTube Video with SEO?
