There are two types of keywords:

  1. Long Tail Keyword (Having Low Competition)
  2. Short Tail Keyword (Having High Competition)
  • A long tail keyword consists of 3 or more words. For example, "How to Create a YouTube channel in 2022" is a long-tail keyword.
  • A short tail keyword consists of 1 to 2 words. For example, "Photoshop Editing" is a short tail keyword.
So here you must know what the user search in the search bar. Keyword research can only do it, which we discuss in upcoming pages.

Keyword research is one of the most important stages of YouTube SEO. Keywords are the main tool through which you can increase the number of views and subscribers to your YouTube channel.

Let's start keyword research because keyword research is everything. I use Google Ads' keyword planner and YouTube for it. For example, I want to make a video on the topic "best Mic for YouTube Videos" So I first open the keyword planner and click on "discover new keywords" and then type "best Mic for YouTube Videos" here select my targeted location "Pakistan" and press "get results".

  1. Channel SEO
  2. Video SEO
I am going to describe these two types. Read them carefully and keep these things in your mind.

1. Channel SEO

  • If you are a beginner on YouTube, then you should choose a channel name in which the main topic of your content is written. For example, I want to teach Blogging on YouTube, I choose my channel name "How to Blogging" "Blogging Factory" "Blogging Mentor" or "Your Blogging Teacher", etc.
  • Open "YouTube Studio" and go to " Customization Tab". Then go to "Branding" and upload an attractive profile and cover photo here. Upload the subscribe button photo in the "Video Watermark".
  • Now go to "Basic info" write the description and include all such keywords and topics in the description on which you want to make videos in the future. For example, for my Blogging channel, I write a description as follows "Welcome to our YouTube Channel. I am your blogging teacher. I am teaching you "Blogging Course Beginners to Intermediate. I also provide information about Competitive Blogging like "How to make your own Blog", "Blogging SEO" and "How to Rank your Blog on Google's first page", etc. They are the keywords I used in the description. You should also use the keywords according to your topic as they help you to grow. Don't make grammatical mistakes in your description.
  • To solve grammar mistakes problem, use "Grammarly" chrome extension.
  • Customize your channel URL by selecting "Custom URL".
  • Give your social media links to YouTube. Also, give your YouTube Channel link to other Social Media Platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. Now Publish by clicking on the "Publish" button. 
  • Now go to "Settings" go to "Channel" and write the keywords on which you want to make videos in the future. For example, I want to teach Blogging. I write the keywords as follows. "Blogging" Blogging SEO, How to start a blog, and then, etc.

Write these keywords in the keyword section, and write the keyword according to your topic. Don't do spamming. Only use the keywords which are related to your topic.

2. Video SEO

There are 5 parts to video SEO. And I will discuss these five parts with all of you, and if you remember, I have already explained all these parts in many of my YouTube related articles, but today I have some different discussions. I will not discuss it from the previous class. So you have to read them carefully.

1. Title SEO

There are many ways to boost your YouTube channel, and not all of them require money. One of the best ways to grow your channel is to optimize the title of your videos so that they appear higher in YouTube search results. This will help your channel get more views and subscribers. You can optimize the title of your video by using the following tips.

  • As we have already learned how to do keyword research. So include the most searched keywords in your title (Get the keywords from Keyword Planner).
  • You can copy the title of your competitor's video or get the title idea from it. If you are a beginner, you should try to use long-tail keywords.
  • For example, I am a beginner and I want to upload a video on the topic How to create Blog in 2022 write the title as follows "How to Create Blog In 2022 | How to rank Blog | Blogging SEO For Beginners - 60 to 80 words title is the best title for SEO.
  • Try to use the name of your channel in the title. If you are not popular, then don't use the name of the channel in the title.
  • Copying the title of your competitor's popular video is also a super best option, but cut the name of the competitors from the title.

2. Description SEO

Having an optimized description for your channels and videos will help you rank higher in search engines for the keywords you want to rank for. Most YouTubers just post whatever is on their mind and don’t think about optimizing their description for search engines. By optimizing your description for search engines, you will see a lot of your views coming from search engines.

There is a lot of competition on YouTube and if you have a well-optimized description, you will rank higher on search engines. For example, if you are a small content creator and you are trying to rank for the keyword “how to make a cake,” there is a lot of competition. But, if you have a well-optimized description with the keyword “make a cake” in your description, you will most likely rank higher on the search engine results page (SERP).

  • Copy your title and paste it at the start of the description.
  • Use all the keywords related to the topic of your video in the first 200-300 words of the description.
  • Don't use all the keywords together, but spread them in the whole description.
  • Give link-related videos and playlists in the description.
  • Also, give your social media links in the description.
  • 200-300 words description is best for SEO.
  • Don't make grammatical mistakes in the description. (Use Grammarly).
  • Also, use Hashtags (#) in a description related to your video topic (3 to 4). Use hashtags (#) of words that you have used in the title.

3. Tags SEO

  1. Go to “" and write your video's main topic. Many tags appear there. Copy all these tags and paste them into the tags sections. Also, use the name of your channel for tags.
  2. Use the "VidIq" Chrome extension and copy the tags of your competitor's videos and paste them into the tags section. 400-500 word tags are best for SEO.
  3. Use a maximum of 10-15 tags and each tag must contain 3-4 words.

4. Video Internal SEO

  1. Write the title, description, and tags in a notepad before uploading the video.
  2. Use this title, description, and tags in the details of your video file. Rename your video file to the same as the title of your video. Open your video file "properties" and then " detail" and then paste the description and tags, which you have copied from a notepad in their place. Rate the video 5 stars and leave a comment in which the main keyword of your video is included.

Many of the new YouTubers and businesses are not making a lot of money on YouTube because they are not getting a lot of views from their videos. So is there any way to get more views on their YouTube channel? The answer is yes. All they have to do is to make "YouTube Shorts" and upload them on their YouTube channel. YouTube shorts are short videos (15 Seconds to 20 seconds) on your channel.

  • Upload at least 5 videos daily and upload consistently.

7. How to get traffic from social media?

  1. Make a strong profile on social media to share your video links.
  2. Don't share the link directly in your social media post, but upload the thumbnail picture and write the caption that "video link in first comment" or upload a small part of a," video full link in the first comment".
  3. If you share the link directly on your Facebook, etc., Facebook will minimize its reach because Facebook and YouTube are opposite video-sharing platforms.
  4. Share your content in different WhatsApp groups to gain maximum views and subscribers.

8. Some Misconceptions about YouTube SEO

  1. People thought they would do the SEO of their video and that their video will be popular overnight. This concept is wrong. SEO takes time of about 3-4 weeks and its results are long-lasting.
  2. People also thought to optimize will rank. This concept is also wrong. There are also some factors other than SEO that YouTube consider like "CTR", "Average View Duration", etc.
Some misconceptions about YouTube SEO are that you need to optimize your videos before publishing them. You can optimize your videos at any point in time. The earlier you optimize, the faster your videos will grow and the better your rankings will be.

Another misconception about YouTube SEO is that you need to purchase a bunch of views and subscribers in order to rank high and attract views. This is completely untrue. The only way you can rank high on YouTube is by having high-quality content and optimization.
You shouldn’t be worried about your views and subscribers. These will grow naturally if you have quality content.
