1. Video Title (Optimize it for more clicks)

The titles of your videos are a major deciding factor between them being widely seen & shared across the internet, or only getting a small number of views.

It’s a good idea to do proper YouTube keyword research to find what people are searching for and then crafting a great title around that.

Youtube Video Title

Here are some tips for writing great video titles on YouTube:

  • Keep them short and to the point.
  • Add the current year if you can (Ex: Best Tips for 2018).
  • Make it attention-grabbing.
  • Include keywords at the beginning of the title (where possible).
  • Use “Power Words” (Ex: Best, Awesome, Incredible).
  • Use emotional triggers words (Ex: Sensual, Lonely, Passionate, Censored).
  • Capitalize your headline title. Use this tool to help you.

2. Video Tags – Utilize the 500 characters limit

One of the biggest mistakes that hinder the growth of your YouTube video’s organic promotion is incorrect tag usage.

Tagging in YouTube works differently than it does in a blog post. If you’ve never paid attention to YouTube tags, now’s a good time to start. You can even go back and edit all of your old tags.

Here are some rules for using YouTube video tags:

  • Use a unique branded tag so that your videos are shown in related videos. Ex: Use your brand name in all videos. (See below screenshot.)
  • Use your main keywords as the video tag.
  • Use a variation of your keyword as a tag (take help of the YouTube auto-suggest feature).
  • Find the tags used by high ranking videos & use those in your video. You can use the TubeBuddy Chrome extension to help you find tags used by others.

Do remember, YouTube video tags are an important factor for the organic ranking of videos.

3. Use A Custom Thumbnail on YouTube

Verified YouTube accounts can take advantage of the custom thumbnail feature. A good video thumbnail helps you stand out in the related video and suggested video section.

Here are some tips for thumbnails:

  • Have a resolution of 1280 x 720 (with a minimum width of 640 pixels).
  • Upload in either .JPG, .GIF, .BMP, or .PNG.
  • Keep it under 2MB.
  • Try to use a 16:9 aspect ratio as it’s the most used in YouTube players and previews.

I don’t want to confuse you with these technicalities, but it’s important for you to know this so that you can craft a thumbnail that works well on desktops as well as mobile devices.

You can use Thumbmaker to design a thumbnail for YouTube videos in minutes.

Make sure, you follow the latest standard of YouTube thumbnail:

  • Have a resolution of 1280×720 (with a minimum width of 640 pixels).
  • Less than 2 MB in size
  • The aspect ratio of 16:9 works best
  • Use your image in the thumbnail to envoke emotions
