YouTubeTake the time to setup correctly the details of your video so that the search engines and your potential viewers can find it easily.

  • The title of your video is a decisive factor so make sure that the exact keyword that you are targeting can be found in the title.
  • In the Description field, be sure to include your website URL. You should make it easy for your viewers to click on
    this link by putting it near the beginning.
  • The tags of your video should also have the list of keywords that you wish to rank for.
