YouTube SEO is the “trick” to getting the YouTube search engine to fall in love with your videos and deliver you more viewers and traffic to your videos.

Learn everything you need to know about SEO and video optimization on YouTube here in this one video. This is the culmination of years of search engine optimization experience and of building a large platform on YouTube in a very short period of time.

To start, this video, we look at what is YouTube SEO and how search engine optimization affects the amount of YouTube traffic you receive.

Specifically were looking at how you can benefit from optimizing your YouTube videos and how YouTube benefits from you becoming a publisher who optimizes every video that you publish to the YouTube platform.

When you create structure and publish your content marketing in and optimized fashion you are able to trigger the algorithm within you to and help YouTube deliver you relevant viewers.

If you ignore YouTube’s goals and YouTube’s algorithm, your videos will simply not receive any views and all of your time and effort to publish the video will be a complete loss.

Once the concept of video SEO is established and why you need to become a partner with YouTube… This is the ultimate goal of every content marketing strategy, to work within the goals and desires of the platform your publishing to.

We move on to looking at the specific tricks tips and tactics you need to implement in your video and publishing process to maximize the optimization of your video.

Video marketing and all content marketing, really, begins with understanding what your audience is searching for and then reverse engineering your content to be the answer to that question. How do we know what our audience is looking for? Or what our audiences questions are? Keyword research!

The fact that my wife and I have both mastered keyword research and we researched the relevant keywords before every single piece of content we create has done directly resulted in our massive organic traffic we enjoy today.

This video is not to go in the keyword research directly, but if you want more help in that area go check out this video here:

Then, quite possibly most important part is what you say on the video and how you deliver your actual video content… It is important to remember at this point it’s not necessarily about the “quality of your video” it’s much more about the quality of content you’re delivering through your video.

With that said if you’d like to know what gear I use and my philosophy for creating a great YouTube video, go check out this video here:

YouTube’s algorithm is watching and reading and listening to every word you speak in every word you type in and around your video. If there’s relevance and engagement viewed then you get rewarded if there is not relevance and your title is not relevant to what you talk about on the video YouTube will think that you’re up to something shady and you will not get results.

The process of search engine optimization is all about out optimizing your competitors’ videos with one or more of these ranking factors in your YouTube marketing… This means you simply need to do a little bit better of a job optimizing your videos than your competitors’ videos in order to outrank your competitors in the YouTube search results.

We also look at the data that YouTube tracks to help YouTube make a decision whether your video is more worthy of traffic compared your competitors’ video… Like click through rate from search engine results page and duration viewed, etc.

These are the statistics that YouTube follows because YouTube sees high click through rates and high average duration watched statistics as a leading their visitors towards more advertisements and ultimately making more money for YouTube.

When you optimize your videos in a way that helps you to accomplish its goals of selling more advertising, you win and YouTube wins… Therefore you are blessed with better rankings.

Engagement factors are a huge part in YouTube SEO as well and totally affect your YouTube marketing results. From the thumbs up likes to the comments and off-site promotion, they all add up to ranking factors that help you to make the decision of where to rank your video compared to your competitors.

We end with some aggressive and advanced tactics so if you feel like “Miles I’m already an SEO ninja” then you’re still going to really get a lot of benefit and value from this video from the advanced ideas that are presented here.

    • Jason Rogers says:

      Literally going thru my Youtube SEO on my most popular 50 videos and applying what I learned right now. HA. So thankful for your content.

      Cheers mate,

    • Miles Beckler says:

      I definitely caught fire on that one! Had a couple of moments during recording like holy crap this is intense… LOL Glad you enjoyed it

  2. Alan Reyes says:

    Thanks that was great!! Did you happen to have a SEO video for blogs, articles, written content?

    • Miles Beckler says:

      Not yet, but that’s coming up soon. I have a good friend who has run the SEO for PayPal and AirBnB who I will be seeing at a conference were both attending next week. My goal is to trap him and force him to get on a video and do a brain dump of everything he knows about SEO for you.

      It may cost me an hour or two of funnel consultation, but well worth it for the content! 🙂

      And of course, if it doesn’t work out with him I will absolutely do a massive brain dump on SEO for blogs and written content.

  3. Adrian Cojocariu says:

    Top notch content Miles. It’s good to see people like you posting stuff online. You have all my support. You really motivate me to start smth myself.

    • Miles Beckler says:

      Thanks for your comments Adrian! By chance did you see my “the market saturation myth video”?

      to talk about this exact thing and honestly that thought process of “well that’s already been done before no sense me doing that” is incredibly prevalent. The thing is you have a different way of describing things in every competitor out there.

      Just like how I have a different way of describing things that Brian Dean for example. By the way I had no idea he just launched a YouTube SEO video!? lol. looks like I’ve got some stiff competition for this “Youtube SEO” keyword phrase and I guess we’ll see how I fair long-term 🙂

      Really, there are no new ideas in this world. With that said we all have a different way of synthesizing ideas based on our personal experiences or education etc. your voice is needed in the world!

    • Adrian Cojocariu says:

      What’s also motivational is that I’ve always had and still have the fear that I will post content that’s already there. But seeing that you’ve posted this while recently Brian Dean also made a Video SEO video, proves to me how much of a lame dork I am.

    • Adrian Cojocariu says:

      PS you’re on bottom of page 2 right now on my side ( 20 results per page means about position 37 ). Hope to see it go higher in time ! 😀

  4. Dean Lodge says:

    Each new video you put out is so helpful! I’m addicted lol. Thanks for the amazing content.
