Video SEO – How to Rank #1 in YouTube (Fast!)




This video will show you everything you need to know about video SEO. Specifically, you’ll learn how to optimize your videos around YouTube’s top 5 ranking factors.

In fact, these are the same five factors that I focus on for every video that I publish. They’re the main reason that my videos rank in the top 3 for keywords like “SEO”, “link building”, “get traffic” and more.

So what are these five YouTube SEO ranking factors?

The first is called Total Watch Time. This is simply how many minutes of watch time your video has accumulated since you published it. The more Total Watch Time your video has the higher it will rank in the search results (in general).

Next up we have mastering the hook. This is simply making sure you hook your viewer in the first 15 seconds of your video (which is HUGE). I’ve found that — once you get someone to watch the first 15 seconds — you’ve pretty much hooked them for good. And in the video I show you how I use “The PPP Formula” to create intros that keep people engaged.

Our third ranking factor is making sure that your title is keyword optimized. This is pretty basic stuff, but it’s important.

Once you’ve optimized your title, it’s time to optimize the video itself. As you’ll see, this is something that you’ll need to do before you shoot. Trying to optimize an old video doesn’t work very well (trust me, I’ve tried it). Instead, you’ll need to plan your keyword optimization well before you hit “record”.

Finally, we have maximizing user engagement signals (likes, comments, subscribes etc.). This shows YouTube that people are interacting with your video.

Last up, we have a bonus tip: optimize your video for CTR. This ranking factor is becoming more important for video SEO. And this is a trend that’s not likely to end anytime soon. After all, a high-CTR shows Google and YouTube that your video is a great result for that search.

And towards the end of this video you’ll learn how to quickly boost your CTR.

    I've never ever heard anyone talk about when you exceed 1000 subscriber does YT recommend you your vidz more. It only seems logical of course YT would not admit this but seems logical. Thoughts, opinions…

    That's interesting that your findings reveal that people would be more attracted to longer videos. One would think that in today's '30-second gnat attention span' that the longer videos would be a turn-off, rather than a turn on.

    Q: Now that YT has taken away "Annotations" for 2019 how can we do the same procedure? I thought I could do the same thing by going in under cards but that doesn't really allow the same type of activity. Any suggestions?

    Great set of tips there. Was surprised to hear Youtube can detect what we actually say in our videos but now you mention it it makes sense as they can already create automatic closed captions.
    I will be create longer videos and I will stop putting links in the top of my discretion. Thanks again.
