How to rank higher on Youtube:

So, Youtube has a billion users: That is a very large market of free traffic to consider. Do you like free traffic? Do you like when people come free and targeted? That is the power of Youtube and the power of a billion users. There is room enough for lots of people to make lots of money with this free traffic source.

So here are 5 tips to rank higher on Youtube:

1. Make sure the file you are uploading has the word or phrase you are targeting in it.
If you are ranking for unicorn ponies (i.e. not likely a phrase you are ranking for so not everyone will copy) then upload a file unicorn-ponies.mp4. You can use whatever file extension is appropriate.

2. Use the key word or phrase that you are targeting in your Title, description and tags.
So Your title could be Unicorn Ponies, or Unicorn Ponies review. Your description should be 200-500 words and sprinkle in the phrase Unicorn Ponies. (Obviously change it to whatever you are actually after. Please do not copy this phrase literally into your description.) The tags could be Unicorn Ponies, Unicorn Ponies Review, Name of the Creator of Unicorn Ponies, etc...

3. Post your Youtube video to all of your Social media accounts.
There are share buttons underneath your video. use as many as you can. Get anyone from your list to share this if you can. The more social shares the more Youtube will believe you are relevant.

4. Engage your audience. In your video ask them for likes and shares. Encourage them to leave a comment or question. Answer these as quickly as you can. The longer they watch and the more they click like or subscribe, the more Youtube will believe you are relevant and rank you higher.

5. Use a good booster. I personally use this software to rank higher (often on page one.) It is safe as long as you wait until the video has been up 24 hours. If you wait too long after that, Youtube will have already decided if you are relevant and it may be hard to rank. If you use it too soon you may set off a SPAM filter. Free traffic has a price :)

The software is called Vidlyft. It is not a free tool, but it is very inexpensive. I suggest the starter version unless you are sure you want to use it on a lot of videos.
I suggest anyone who really wants to get a lot of free traffic from Youtube grab this up.
You can still use all the other free tips as well. If you do use the software I suggest you optimize it with the suggestions in the first 4 tips before using the software.
