Secret 3. YouTube Video Optimization
Title, description, tags, and thumbnails are the foundation of your video’s YouTube SEO.

Video Title
Video title is one of the first impressions of your video. YouTube title appears in a very prominent place in the YouTube Search Results Page (YSRP). Thus it greatly affects your CTR. Viewers will check it and then decide either to click and watch your video or not.

Make sure the title is at least 5 words long.
Include keywords in the title.
Make sure title contains a clear and concise interpretation of your target keyword. Viewers can guess what’s inside the video by reading the title.
Avoid keyword stuffing.
Video Description
YouTube and Google understand the context of your video via video description. The better they understand, the higher your video will rank.

Make the description at least 250 words.
Include your keyword 2-4 times.
Besides, video description is your chance to expand on the information in the video with links, and calls to action. For instance, you can include links to your website and other social networks in the description.

Video Tags
Video tags not only help you rank for your target keyword but also help YouTube and Google learn what your video is about. Create up to 10-12 tags. Tag your videos with relevant words and keyword.

Video Thumbnail
