If your video is attractive, or giving complete information. So the user would stay connected to your video. If the user likes your video very much, then he sees a lot of your videos too. Which is a plus point.

Watch Time:

Make the length of your video at least four to five minutes. And if your keyword video is longer than five minutes, then keep in mind that your video should be ten  minutes long.

Also, if your video is not good, then the viewer will watch the video only for fifteen to thirty seconds, which will have a bad effect on your video ranking.

As you can see, video title, video tags, video description, video thumbnail and video translation put a lot of head in the ranking of videos. Let us know about them in brief.

Youtube Video Title:

The video title tells what your video is about.

  • Must enter keywords in video title
  • Make video title catchy

Attractive video title helps to increase the CTR of your video.

Youtube Video Description:

YouTube video description tells YouTube what’s in your video. Because youtube can’t read videos.

Write at least two words in your video description. If the video is a tutorial, then their steps can also be told in the video.

Add links to your sites in the video. And also put the link of your social media profiles.

Tip: Some people also put a link to Sam’s video in the video description, and can also put a link to the videos related to it.

YouTube video tags:

It is necessary to put tags in a YouTube video, because it tells YouTube what this video is about, and which video is similar to it. Due to which your video goes in the suggested list of videos of other channels.

Add your keywords to the video tags. And also add similar search. Note: Only enter tags related to the video. It’s not like you are making a video of “how to make paneer pakodas”, and you are putting the tags of “pizza” in the tags.

Tip 1: You look at the videos of that keyword which is ranking, now check their keywords. This will give an idea of ​​keywords. You can use TubeBuddy to spy on keywords.

Tip 2: You choose a tag of your own channel, which you have to put in every video. As BloggingXP’s channel has a separate tag “BloggingXP”, I put it in every YouTube video. It helps you to build branding.

Youtube Video Thumbnails:

As it is said “first impression is last impression”. Because thumbnail is a better image of your video.

You make your thumbnail so attractive that the viewer will be compelled to watch the video. Thubnail helps in increasing your CTR.

High CTR = Higher Ranking + More Views

Tip: Use online photo editing tools like Photoshop and Canva for attractive thumbnails.

Youtube Video Translation:

With the help of YouTube Translation, you can also share your video in different languages.

Like, I put the video “how to make paneer pakoda at home” so I can translate the title of this video and write it as “how to make paneer pakoda at home”.

You can translate a video into as many languages ​​as you want.

For example, the video is in English and you have also included Hindi translation. So your video will be visible in both languages.

Look at the image given below:

When I search in YouTube “Video SEO”

YouTube Search Result in English

And when I search the same thing in Hindi “Video SEO”

YouTube Search Result in Hindi

As you can see, the search of both the keywords is different, because both the keywords are different. But still the same video is coming out. All this is amazing of YouTube translation feature. Maybe by now you would have understood.

Tip: If you put a video, then definitely translate it into a different language. It’s your advantage in this.

YouTube End Screen Card:

First of all, both YouTube End Screen Card and YouTube Cards are different things. You can use End Screen cards only in the last five to twenty seconds of the video. But Cards can be used anywhere in the video.

But only one of the two can be used in a video.

The end card is very effective, use them in every video.

YouTube Video Subtitles /CC

Subtitles/CC also plays a part in the ranking of your video. Take advantage of this.

Youtube Video Subtitles CC

Whatever you say in this, it happens in writing from beginning to end and that too in different languages. As seen in the above picture.

YouTube Video Playlist:

YouTube Playlist  is very helpful in getting the videos ranked and getting video views. When creating a playlist, put your keyword in the playlist name.

Add ranking videos and accompanying videos to your video as well.

Friends, this part is over now, now let’s go to the other side

Social Signal

Social signal means how much your video is being shared on social media (like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest), the more shares, the higher the benefit of ranking.

So whenever you put a video, spread it in your profile, Facebook page, Facebook group.

But don’t spamming (I hate spamming?)

Note: You can also buy Fake Social Signals. If these websites can help in ranking then why not in video ranking.

Tip: You can also take the help of Facebook Ads and Adwords.

YouTube Video Embed

Video Embed is helpful in bringing your video ranking and video views. Video embedding works like a backlink. The more embeds the more profit.

You can embed your video on your website. You can also embed by creating web 2.0 . You can also put your video link by going to the blogs of the people. There are many such ways, sir, but you have to be creative.

YouTube Video Views

There is a direct fund of video views, the more views the better ranking (More Views = High Ranking). But keep in mind that the views should be of quality. Every video must be at least 60 to 80%.

You can easily increase views from Social Media, Embeds, YouTube Comments and Fake YouTube Video Views.

Social Media Views

You can easily get video views from Facebook page and Facebook group. You join facebook group your video rated and share your video there. [Please do not spam or else you will be removed from the group]

YouTube Comments Views

You can enter the link of your video by going to the comments of the video related to your video. From that you will get a lot of traffic.

Like if I am making a video about managed wordpress hosting, then I will find videos related to managed wordpress hosting, wordpress hosting and managed hosting and comment on them.

Note: In this way you can bring traffic to your website along with YouTube videos.

Embeds Views

You can embed your video on various websites. Also embed it on your website. Embed also increases the authority of your channel.


Reddit is the best way for traffic, you can bring millions of traffic to your website, sales funnel and YouTube video.

Fake YouTube Views:

Now you will think in your mind that “Now it has started to be thrown”. You must have seen the post of many experts that Fake Views do not work, it is all garbage.

I believe that Fake Views are Fake, nor do they help you to generate Leads. But they have some value, man.

If Fake Traffic Can Work, Fake Social Signals Can Work, Then Why Not Fake Views?

What if you can’t get Lead/Conversion, you can help in initial boost.

You can buy fake YouTube views from any panel but keep in mind that only buy high retention views. And if it’s DripFeed, even better.

If you want country wise traffic then you can also buy HR Country Targeted Views.

Tip: Fake YouTube video views helps your video to go viral, and if done properly, can even land in the trending section.

YouTube Channel Authority

Make your channel an authority. And follow only one thing. For example, if the channel is of Gadget Review, then put video related to Gadget Review and Gadget. You have authorized the channel.
