  • Tips to get more views on YouTube for free

    Posted by Sofiya on December 9, 2020 at 7:52 am

    YouTube is the second largest search engine in the world, and is a widely platform perfect to gain a following and promote yourself.

    It’s a goldmine.

    The problem is however, it’s also very competitive.

    And people make it a lot of stupid mistakes trying to beat the algorithm and give themselves a boost, like buying views.

    The problem is however YouTube’s bot detection is getting better, the algorithms care more about about user behaviour than view counts anyway, and taking shortcuts will get you penalized.

    So what do you do instead?

    Get views from YouTube’s Organic Search Results

    1. Use Descriptive and Keyword Rich Titles

    2. Have Quality and Keyword Rich Descriptions

    3. Use trending tags

    4. Create transcripts (captions) of your videos

    Convert every click you can

    1. Optimize your thumbnail image

    2. Provide content that either educates or entertains (or both)

    3. Piggyback off viral trends

    Use the community

    1. Encourage your viewers to share your content

    2. Ask your viewers to like and subscribe

    3. Collaborate with guest appearances from other content creators

    All of this advice is great. I like the way you’ve set it out too, I might use it as a checklist. Thanks for sharing!

      Good idea! GO through it before publishing every video as an optimization checklist 🙂
