In today’s post,
Am going to show how I rank on my videos on Youtube page 1 results in 24 hours.
The secrets: it is a repeatable step-by-step action plan am being used so far, especially for my clients.
Not just that,
This action plan is part of the process that boosted my client’s organic youtube channel traffic by 150%.
It is a no-brainer.
So if you want to rank higher on Youtube fast, then you would love this case study.
The channel was just a brand new channel that started out with zero (0) subscribers.
But for the fact that I optimized the video the right way, I got that early ranking in 24 hours.
OK then, let’s dive right in.
Now the very first approach when it comes to ranking youtube videos is Generating video keyword ideas that you can quickly crack up the first page for.
I can explain
How To Generate Video Topic Ideas
Generating video topic ideas is the most important key factor of this case study and also for every Youtube channel out there looking to grow their channel.
And it is also a road map for every Youtube video contents creators.
And that video topic ideas are what our potential audiences are searching for and we need to find it.
Not just finding, but also looking for potential opportunities to see if we can rank for it.
And a lot of Youtubers don’t understand this approach because they create videos that they feel will go viral overnight, and that is one great mistake these YouTubers make.
To get started use the following options to get keyword ideas for your channel, step 1.
Leverage The Youtube search bar
Head over to the Youtube search bar and pop any ideas of any topics you want to make videos on and don’t press enter,
And youtube auto-suggests them for you.
That means people are searching for it, so then it is a great topic to start working on.
So do this for as much as you can and you get a list of keywords on your lists and head over to step 2.
Use The Sort By Option From Your Competitor’s videos:
This is easy as ABC.
If your competitors are getting views then it means they are doing something right that your audience loves to see.
So use step 1 to get a list of these competitors, but this time press enter and check for those ranking on page 1
Have a look into their channel dashboard and sort videos out by the most popular.
And you get a list of your competitor’s best-performing videos and do the very last steps.
Check For Search Volume
Now you have a list of keywords from step 1 with you.
So pop those keywords into vidiQ to get an estimate of the search volumes of keywords.
And they will also show you keyword various keywords you put in.
So choose low to medium tail keywords and there you have it.
Save Video File Name With Optimized Keyword
Now you have a list of keywords to make videos on.
Now before uploading them on Youtube, ensure you save each video with the keywords you want to rank for.
Am talking from experience because this approach worked well for me.
That way Youtube can easily detect what the video is all about.
For example, I want to rank for the keywords “best wordpress hosting in Nigeria” so I saved my video file name using that mentioned.
Add Keywords In Headlines & Video Descriptions
This is simple,
After uploading your videos to Youtube, it off best interest to add the video keywords in Your Video title headline.
And also in the Video description, as shown above.
Note: don’t just spam your video keywords there and believe things are going to work that way.
If you are doing that, then you need to put an end to that approach as the algorithm is against it.
So just writes fewer descriptions about the video and ensure you add the keywords you want to rank for in it.
But ensure the wording and sentences flow naturally, better still you can also add keywords variation in addition.
All these variations can be gotten from Vidiq tools.
Add Keyword In Video Tags
Tags are video tags that specify the category of what your video falls into.
And if you leave that empty then you are doing great mistakes with your channel.
Add keywords to tags and keyword variations also.
This helps Youtube categorize your video and helps you rank them where applicable.
Upload High Captivating Youtube Thumbnails
Remember if ranking is important then it is also important for people to click your videos when found on search.
But once Youtube could see that people are no longer clicking Your videos, Your ranking decreased.
And how can you avoid this step? is by uploading captivating eye-catching thumbnails.
With respect to my video, these high-catching thumbnails are what lead to a good-looking CTR (click to rates) on search.
And to Youtube, CTR is a huge ranking factors
And they also made it clear that if people are clicking your videos on search then they will decrease your ranking process.
Rank your video on Google search results
Ranking videos on Google search and Youtube is also great but with Google, the approaches are quite different.
For better stills, the following checklists should be done.
- Add Timestamps to your videos
- Scripts Your videos into chapters
- Add subtitles to your videos
- Mention Your video keywords in your video
- Make sure your videos are engaging and solve users’ problems.
