Any tips on how to optimized YouTube videos for SEO?
You can also do a manual submission to other top video sites, which will dramatically increase your video exposure.
We have a Youtube channel and when I learned about SEO of a website, I think it will also be effective with the video on Youtube particularly the keywords. I edited the videos one by one (although I was able to do just some of it) and changed the tags for the proper keywords which should be unique but relevant to the theme of the video. I cannot say if it has an effect because I am not monitoring the views as of this time.
search for your competitors ( similar video channels ). Search for a video with the option setting for view count and piggyback on the keywords or tags of that video. It will eventually end up on the right side as (also recommended for you). Not sure if this trick still works, it used work in good old days.
