The job of an internet marketer does not end in successful posting of videos on YouTube; it also requires a concerted effort in ensuring to increase YouTube views for guaranteed success in this market. This would require the implementation specific strategies to help the search engines find your spot. I will forthwith begin to enumerate a few effective strategies that a good number of people are ignorant of.
You must have notice some annoying little boxes that keep on popping-up while watching YouTube videos this boxes are called annotation boxes and they come in quite handy to zone in the eagle eyes of search engines. to include annotations in your videos is quite a simple process:-
ANNOTATING YOUR VIDEOS
Log into your YouTube account and go to the “account manager” section. A list of your current videos is displayed for you to select your working video. Hit the edit button and select the button tagged- “annotations” located at the top of the screen. The annotations button leads you to the next screen- select the “add annotation” radio button- this gives you a handful of options to choose from. Make an intelligent choice that suites your whim. The result of your choice presents you with a box in which you can enter your text. as a guide, I would advise you to begin annotating with your keyword phrase (this singular act aids search engines in homing-in your videos and remember the more apt/concise/terse your keywords are, the better your ranking will become; then follows the comment- which is video specific and entails the information you want the viewer to acquire; then as an option, you could include the time slot (the duration of annotation display while video runs). select the publish “button” and you’re through.
MODIFYING CAPTION SETTINGS
By default, YouTube includes a ‘transcript file’ as an attachment to your video- this is a written narrative of your video- and is potentially a powerful tool in ranking your videos on the internet. However, YouTube does a poor job in using this tool to rank your videos and therefore to make the most out of this tool you’ll have to edit the transcript using word processing apps on your personal computer and when through, Uploading the file to YouTube or editing the text on the YouTube website. To begin navigate your way to the account manager section of your YouTube account and select the video of choice then navigate your way to the “captions” button at the top of the page. This provides you access to the video’s transcript which you can begin editing. As general guide rules, your keyword phrase must be included as both the first and last words of the “track name” of the transcript- this, as i have earlier pointed out aids in rapid search engine hits- when through click “done”
ALLOW VIDEO COMMENTS
Allowing visitors to your YouTube account to leave videos in your comments section will potentially get you more views and enlist people into promoting your site. To activate this feature go to the accounts manager section of your account and under the advanced settings tab, check the null box marked “allow video responses”. Reciprocate this gesture by searching for popular videos on YouTube which share the same theme as yours and leave a video comment on the site.
REGULAR PROVISION OF FRESH CONTENT
There’s no greater tool, no sure way of increasing YouTube views than the strategy of consistently providing fresh content, subtly and succinctly tailored to promote your internet presence as an expert on your particular field. Such contents must be short (not more than five-5 minutes in length) and captivating- leaving viewers with an appetite for more of your videos.
I think this article somewhat helped you in increasing your youtube viewers.
