How To Get Your Videos Ranked on YouTube

How To Successfully Rank Videos on YouTube

How To Successfully Rank Videos on YouTube

Every video content creator or marketer at some point dreams of one thing – to rank videos on YouTube. But did you know 60% of YouTube views come from Google searches? Since Google is the world’s largest search engine plus it owns YouTube, successfully getting your videos ranked on Google will ultimately get it ranked on YouTube as well. 

Ready to learn how to get there? Here are some tips of getting your videos ranked on YouTube. 

 

How To Successfully Rank Videos on YouTube

 

  1. Keyword relevancy – This may sound almost too obvious but your video has to be about what the viewers want to see. Use only one keyword per title – any more may dilute your chances of getting found and ranked by Google.   
  1. Authority –  It means you’re generating enough videos in a certain field for you to become a go to source of knowledge in that matter. How to establish yourself as authority? Try waking up early and making 5+ videos in your related field.  Then release one video each week one the same day and at the same time to generate traffic and followers.   
  1. Engagement – Google wants to see engagement with your video preferably within the first hour of publishing your content. This mean receiving likes, dislikes, comments and shares counts toward your engagement rates.  Don’t worry about a bad comment, they can sometimes increase your engagement more than a good comment! This is due to the amount of additional comments that tend to follow a bad comment, by other viewers either agreeing with them or defending your recently published content. Makes sense? 
  1. Uploading – The way you upload your video to YouTube is also important to your video getting ranked. You want your primary keyword, which is your video’s title, listed at the top of the description. Beneath it, include your website’s full URL, making it as easy as possible for viewers to get to your website. Then create a description, 200-400 words stating what your video is about. Following your description is a great place to add a call to action.  You then want to list your name, your company’s name, website, and social media links.  

 

If you are not investing in video as part of your digital marketing strategy, you are missing a great opportunity to engage your target audience, expand your brand and boost sales.

7 Key Elements for Pay-Per-Click Advertising

7-key-elements-ppc

If you’re looking for immediate results, implementing a Pay-Per-Click (PPC) advertising campaign is a great Internet marketing tool for bringing traffic to your website.  It’s also important to realize that these campaigns need to be properly setup and closely monitored to confirm that they are working effectively.  There are 7 Key Elements to keep in mind when setting up and managing your PPC campaign.

 

7 Key Elements for Pay-Per-Click Advertising

  1. Begin with Keyword Research.

     Keyword research forms the foundation of your campaign.  Taking the time to do the proper research for the keywords that are relevant to your campaign will ensure that your campaign is going in the right direction from the start.  You can use tools such as the Keyword Planner tool provided by Google to do research on the keywords you have in mind for you campaign, and to find suggested keywords that you may have not considered.

  2. Well Crafted Ad Copy.

    Your ad copy should be well thought out and relevant to the message of your campaign.  The ad copy should be short, direct, and include a clear call-to-action so that users know exactly what action it is that they will be taking once they click on your ad.  Using ad extensions is another great approach to stand out amongst your competitors.  Ad extensions tend to drive the efficiency of your ad by allowing users to choose from multiple options on how to learn more or contact your business.  Phone calls, site links and structure snippets are just a few of the ad extensions that you can utilize.

  3. Practice A/B Testing.

    By creating multiple ads and testing them against each other, you will be able to analyze and improve your copy to generate better campaign results.  Some copy resonates with your target audience better than others, and A/B testing is a great way to find out which ads could be more beneficial to your campaign.

  4. Bid Management.

    Monitoring your bid activity will help you deliver reliable a Cost-Per-Acquisition (CPA).  CPA is the amount of money it costs for a customer to make the desired conversion that is set for the campaign.  This could be filling out a form, making a purchase or whichever valuable action you have set up your campaign for.

  5. Landing Page Relevancy.

    The landing page for your campaign needs to be relevant to the ad that you are promoting.  Not only does this create a consistent transition for users when moving from your ad to the landing page, it also has a positive impact on your ad’s ranking when it appears in search listings.  Google wants to make sure that its users are getting the best experience possible when entering a query on their search engine, so they give more favorable rankings to those that use landing pages that directly reflect the ad that they are connected to.

  6. Hone Your Call-to-Action.

    Include a visible call-to-action on your landing page.  It needs to be obvious to customers what their next step should be in their path to purchase.  Whether you want users to sign up for a newsletter, fill out a contact form or make a purchase that action needs to be front and center on your landing page along with applicable details to explain why engaging in this conversion will benefit them.

  7. Measure, Tweak, Improve.

    It is imperative that you consistently measure the success of your campaign.  By monitoring your campaign on a regular basis, you can determine which parts of your campaign are working and which parts are not.  Once you identify these success and failures, you can adjust your campaign accordingly to improve your results in the future.

Because our firm concentrates on serving small to medium sized businesses with their marketing challenges, we always provide our clients with an up-to-date marketing strategy in an industry that changes on a daily basis. 

Being a part of the SEMPO Cities Delaware Valley Panel last month is one of the ways we learn and grow as a company. Talking to so many inspiring people in the digital marketing industry always leaves us with so many great ideas and new practices to implement into our business strategy. 

Since we like sharing what we know about the Internet and marketing, in today’s post we’re going to share 3 takeaways from the recent panel with SEMPO Cities.  

SPEAKERS: 


Kamran Malik of WSI


Kamran Malik is a Franchise Business Manager and a Digital Marketing Strategist at WSI. Kamran has mentored/advised 364 entrepreneurs across 60 cities, 18 countries and spanning 5 continents around the world.  During his presentation, Kamran spoke about the past, present and future of Digital Marketing.  Kamran touched on every aspect of Digital Marketing throughout his presentation, explaining what purpose each element of a company’s Digital Marketing Strategy serves to make it come together as a success.  Kamran ended his presentation discussing what is to come in the future.  TAKEAWAY: Technology continues to grow everyday around the world and the opportunities to come are infinite. 

 

Beth Heller Google Partner Enablement Managers

Beth Heller is one of Google’s Partner Enablement Managers in NYC.  Before Google, Beth spent 10+ years in marketing – leading communications teams at PR agencies and serving as a media trainer for her clients.  She also spent two years at a live video streaming start up where she ran the influencer marketing department’s operations and sales trainings.  Beth’s presentation started with the word nomophobia – the fear of being without your mobile device.  She focused on the importance of mobile marketing, as well as touching on information about Google AdWords.  TAKEAWAY:“Be There, Be Useful and Be Quick.”  In today’s world, consumers want information to be easily found, relevant and quick to access.  It’s important to ensure that your online campaigns, website and such are all optimized and ready for your potential customers to utilize. 


Michael Fanaro of Aardvark Video Works

Michael Fanaro is the Co-Founder of Aardvark Video Works.  He’s an experience owner with a demonstrated history of working in the broadcast media industry.  Michael is skilled in Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Copy Writing, Video Production and Integrated Marketing. During Michael’s presentation, he focused on the importance of video in a company’s Digital Marketing Strategy.  A video is easier to consume than reading an article or deciphering what a picture means.  One third of all time people spend online is dedicated to watching video.  Michael also spoke about what elements make a good video.  TAKEAWAY: One of the most important elements in a video is making sure that potential customers get what the whole point of the video is about.  Entertainment is great, but if no one remembers what the purpose of the actual video was, you’re missing your opportunity to spread your message.   

 

In addition, one of our very own  employees – Ian Stevenson, explained at the end of Michael’s presentation how to optimize videos for YouTube.  Ian talked about some of the essential ranking factors to think about when putting your video on YouTube, which include keyword relevancy, authority and engagement.

Is There a Future for SEO

Is There a Future for SEO?

Is There a Future for SEO

Just as the numerous conspiracy theories have resurfaced this election season, so too has the unfounded rumors that SEO is dead.

Seriously,  these SEO death rumors have been circulating since 1997. I’m happy to say that there are not many marketers buying into this myth.

Go ahead and Google, “Is SEO dead 2016” and you will find a plethora of articles debunking the idea that SEO is dead. In fact, most of them tout that  SEO is an ever evolving and necessary strategy to work in tandem with social media marketing and other digital advertising methods, such as content creation.

While there is a whopping 4% of marketers out there that believe SEO is dead, the numbers are much bigger for its chance of survival. Actually, if ever there were a marketing sign that a SEO mandate is called for, it is now!

What businesses need to realize is that an effective digital marketing strategy is a lot of various tools, of which the main ingredient is SEO, that need to be implemented in a cohesive manner to achieve marketing harmony. A good digital marketing company knows this and will offer Adaptive SEO packages that will perform much better in the whole, than that of hap-hazard strategies implemented in a piece meal fashion.

For the last month or so, we have advocated in starting with the basics. Getting your house in order (your website, your social media properties and directory listings) is a good place to start. But ending there is not going to help you create the #LeadGeneration that will help you to grow your online presence.

Check out this infographic on why we believe Adaptive SEO will play a big part in the digital marketing arena in the near future and for many marketing light years to come!

Is ther a Future fo SEO
