1. Make sure you have good quality videos on youtube.
This is really important, if your videos are not good and you don’t use any fancy camera equipment then they will not be very helpful to youtube search. Make your videos as close to real-life as possible. If the video is a bit slow or too fast it might not be very attractive for google search.
2. Make sure you have your own channel.
Your own personal youtube page can contain links to specific pages of a website. Just make sure all these sections are visible in the video. You can also link the other channels that you want to include with the videos.
3. Get professional images
We need to do this before we start trying to promote our youtube content. The best thing about using our favorite photographers/photographers is that they already have all their images ready for us, it needs just to be added in the same place. We usually get 3 main kinds of photos, which are photos of the people we can tag in the video, photos from my home (that I have), or photos from places around me. All these photos are going into one computer or folder and uploaded onto them. They are going into the google search engine. So it’s easy when you add a new image to the page, you upload it straight onto google and see that image on youtube. It doesn’t matter, the idea is that these photos contain useful information about people and our lives.
4. Add your bio to the description of the video
You probably know about our last point, so make sure you put the important information here. This information may be something such as “look up X, find out more information about Y, read more about Z” etc, etc and then show it off. These things are going to help Google to know who you are, what your story is about, and how you want to be known.
5. Don’t forget…the end result.
Just like we said earlier, it’s pretty important when sharing videos on youtube to ensure this stuff is really good. We try to keep our videos short and to the point but there are some really important points to make when we are researching people to promote them or videos. So make sure you have these important points in mind so you don’t panic if you find someone who there isn’t. For example, if anything seems odd or misleading it is not always advisable to post it. But making an extra effort and being prepared, because everything ends up being good for google.
6. Link out
I mentioned that linking your youtube account out to others can really help when promoting youtube. When you have a youtube page containing all of our blogs/videos just link it out to various websites that share our content etc and let everyone know about it. You can also link your youtube account to your Facebook account etc, so it is now easier to show people a link to your youtube page rather than having to go through all of our whole websites.
7. Be nice!
When posting anything or even searching for material on youtube, there is only so much that you can do, especially if you are looking for something a little bit difficult to look upon. There has been a lot of debate over when to say you should or shouldn’t mention something so if you follow youtube and they have good content then maybe posting something once or twice maybe isn’t too bad.
But I would definitely like to say if you’re posting something once I should say you’re gonna see it again sometime, which means it will take longer to get back to the site that posted it. And to be honest, sometimes it doesn’t work out for me but if you’re posting it once then I’m happy. As long as it makes sense, if it does then we all win. Thanks for reading and hopefully one day you will be able to write an article explaining or helping or giving any tips to youtube.
