Okay, just a disclaimer – I’m not that serious in doing video SEO anymore this time around, because I now switched to FB ads.
I admit I became a little bit lazy in spending time optimizing my videos, and I now have some budget so I kinda gave up on video SEO.
The last time I gave tips on this subject was way back in 2014 (geez, can’t believe that was 4 years ago)…
But hey, most of those tips I gave in this video can still work up to now.
Anyway, even if I no longer personally do video SEO that much, I know that a lot of you still wanted to learn how to rank videos today and so I opened this topic now…
First off, the beauty of optimizing your videos is that, once they rank, they can give you results for a longer period of time (unlike ads that are for short term).
What you’ll work on today can give you results even in the next years.
See how I got an Amazon check recently from the videos I ranked before…
But of course, you also have to be willing to spend some time to work and be patient to wait for the result.
And some of the tricks that was working a few years ago no longer work today.
If you want to learn the safe ways to optimize your videos, I highly recommend you to checkout my friend Adam Payne’s video SEO courses:
Adam is one of the few HONEST and trusted guys in this industry so you’ll be safe with him.
But to get you started, here are some tips on how to rank videos in 2018 from Backlinko…
Those are poweful tips, but they are mostly on the onsite SEO side.
On the offsite side, you can also get some social signals and backlinks.
I’ve been using Magic Submitter for this before and it’s great but it’s really pricy.
And so today, you can consider this new tool called Videtar.
Here’s a demo on how it works.
Although the app also allows you to create videos, I rather recommend you to use other tools to create your videos then just upload your video to optimize in the app.
But I like the way the app allows you to do your keyword research, and then add link juices and social signals to your videos.
Not to mention you can get it at a LOW one-time fee!
