SEO for Video Tutorials | Social Media Today

SEO for Video Tutorials | Social Media Today | YouTube Tips and Tutorials | Scoop.it
Here is what you can do to increase your video's rank on both Google and YouTube.
Ileane Smith's insight:

There is one misconception in this post. I know that a lot of people are confused about this and I was to at one time.


Here's what the author said:


Optimizing a video for YouTube

Did you notice that the only advantage of QuickBooks' own video I highlighted in the table above was its shortness? These days, YouTube takes into account "time watched" when estimating a video's importance and quality. So, the shorter your video is, the more likely it is to be watched through, and hence, the higher it is likely to rank on YouTube.

So, Tip #1 - make your video as short as possible. Then, when you upload your newly made video to YouTube, take the following steps:


This is not true. Videos do not need to be short in order for people to watch all the way through. In fact if your video is too short that can hurt in terms of YouTube ranking. Here's the thing: YouTube wants people to stay on their site LONGER so if all of your videos are short and people leave when they are done watching then you have a SHORTER watch time and therefore your channel loses ranking. 


Make your videos engaging.


That's what keeps people on the site and helps with your SEO.
