Tips Getting the Most Out of Your YouTube Account

Getting the most from your YouTube account requires you to focus on the same principles as any other Search Engine Optimization. To rise viewers, makes your YouTube videos as easy as possible for people to find it.

When you post a new video on YouTube, it is automatically converted Flash. Search engines can’t see what’s inside most Flash files, especially video. That’s why Google’s cached version of a YouTube page only shows the text that accompanies the video, not the video itself.

Optimizing Tangential Content

You want to optimize your video’s surrounding content so that you can improve the page’s rank for your target keywords. YouTube automatically generates meta tags for every new view page.
The name of the video becomes the title tag.

The description – which is found in the “more info” section – by default becomes the meta description tag.

And the YouTube tags become the content of the page’s meta keywords tag.
What you want to do is to post links to your YouTube pages.

Decide where you want to drive the traffic from your YouTube channel/profile page, then link to those — such places as your Facebook and Twitter pages — in order to expand your social media presence. Don’t forget to include appropriate keywords in the name of the video, and use the word “video” whenever it’s appropriate.

Video Titles


Your video’s title is the single most important piece of information that Google uses to index and rank your video. For every video you post, create a unique, keyword-rich description that includes a URL at the very beginning.

When you do this, even if the “more info” option is collapsed, visitors will still see your link.

Video Description


Your video’s description is the second most important indicator to search engines of the video’s content, after the title. So you want to include relevant keywords that tell search engines what the video is about.

In the video’s description, it’s a good idea to provide video transcripts. Search engines can’t see what’s in your video, so they gather content data from the title, description, and tags. When you have a full transcript of your video in the description, it makes it easy for search engines to better understand what your video is about.

Other Linking Opportunities

YouTube offers a lot of captions and annotation features, so add notes, subtitles, descriptions, and links directly over the top of the video whenever possible.

For example, for every video, there are options for “Broadcasting and Sharing.” Open commenting and embedding for each of your videos. Just make sure you monitor these occasionally to prevent spam and inappropriate comments.

Another link-building option is to post your videos as responses to other popular videos, piggybacking on the success of a viral video and diverting a portion of its visitors to your own content.

Drawing Attention to Your Video

The thumbnails that YouTube displays are actually screen shots from the one quarter, half, and three quarters marks of each video.

When you create your video, place your logo or your most compelling image at each of these points because thumbnails have a large impact in a video’s click-through.

You also want to make it as easy as possible for other users to share your videos. Adjust your settings so that all users are allowed to interact and embed your videos.

You might catch negative comments as a result, but as long as comments aren’t obscene, negative feedback can be just as valuable for attracting traffic as positive comments because a mixture of negative and positive comments makes the user experience more authentic.

Facebook’s Predictive Analytics – A Love Story

Did you know that Facebook can look at its user’s posting patterns and moods in order to predict their future romantic relationships?

As a posting on the blog FierceBigData put it on February 19, 2014: “‘During the 100 days before the relationship starts, we observe a slow but steady increase in the number of timeline posts shared between the future couple,’ writes Facebook data scientist Carlos Diuk in his ‘The Formation of Love’ post.

‘When the relationship starts (day 0), posts begin to decrease. We observe a peak of 1.67 posts per day 12 days before the relationship begins, and the lowest point of 1.53 posts per day 85 days into the relationship. 

Presumably, couples decide to spend more time together, courtship is off and online interactions give way to more interactions in the physical world.

Facebook as Cupid?

To put it another way, Facebook knows before you do when you are going to become a couple. It certainly knows long before you announce it on your relationship status.

Send emails only to the people who would like them
 A lot of the reason that your email marketing may be looking like it is failing is because you are probably sending your e-mail to the people who don't want them. 

Individuals who get your e-mails, but don't want them usually end up deleting them without opening them or marking …
