YouTube is all about getting traffic directed to your channel, so that more and more people watch your videos and subscribe to your channel. The number of viewers that YouTube gets in a month is around 1billion, so no matter what you post on YouTube the first and foremost thing that you have to take care of is the keywords, and your viewership will be guaranteed. If you use the right keywords, then your video will not only garner views but will actually become popular. There are also ways for buying YouTube views, and we all know that it doesn’t serve the greater picture.
So, let’s go through the ropes of how to generate traffic for your YouTube channel. The basics of video-making are as follows:
- It all starts with making a video. How do you make one, and what kind should it be? Well, you can make a video of anything using even your mobile phone. However, one thing should be kept in mind. Your video should be able to generate interest among the viewers so that they start looking forward to something interesting the next time. If your video is trash, you may views the first time but the next time will be a very tough fight.
- Name the video properly. It all depends on the keywords you use while posting the video on YouTube. People search on YouTube using keywords. The more accurate you are in using them while naming your video the more likely they are to come in search results when someone types in a similar keyword. The first step towards this is to make sure whether anyone is actually using the same keywords you are planning to use. Now, you don’t have to worry about the common words, because people are bound to search words like ‘investing’ and ‘money’. But these words are likely to turn up so many results that your video will probably get lost under the pile. You may use Keyword planner services to figure out what keywords you should use to get your video noticed. All you need to do is type in the keyword you plan to use and figure out what the estimated monthly traffic you may get.
- You may target specific people. This means using such keywords which only a handful of people are likely to search. While you may get lesser views, your approach to gather a target audience will make your chances of getting ranked easier.
- The final step is to actually publish the video. You can go about doing this in several different ways, but the best one is to publish it directly from the software you have been using to edit it. You can also just publish it normally on YouTube. Once you are done with uploading the video, you will be asked for the title of the video and the tags for it. This is where the previous step comes in handy. Use the keywords decided beforehand. Once everything is done, go ahead and post it and you are done.
