Marketing Your YouTube Channel

A lot of YouTubers are struggling out there because of YouTube's new rules. I noticed ever since YouTube revealed their new rule everybody was going the sub for sub route. I have to admit, at the time I thought it was a good idea too. Not anymore though, which is why I produced my YouTube Subscribers Sub For Sub Idea? video.  Don't worry, I'm getting to the marketing your YouTube channel bit shortly. So, in that video, I explain why I thought the sub for sub idea sucked. I also stipulated how the most important issue to focus on is the 4,000 hours. I mention SEO, keyword research amongst other things marketing. Personally, I think marketing YouTube channel is going to be really difficult. A lot more difficult than promoting your blog post. The reason I'm saying this is because I believe YouTube favours their more prominent partners showing their video before newbie videos. Makes perfect sense considering YouTube stands to make money from their videos. As bloggers, we understand the importance of SEO and keywords and such. Commenting on other blogs is probably the easiest way to promote our blogs via the link juice. If those blogs use Commentluv, you even have the added advantage of promoting your keywords. Using Blog Commenting For Marketing Your YouTube Channel So, here is what I'm getting at, that YouTubers comment on blogs but instead of using their blogs URL they use the one to their YouTube channel or even a particular video. So, here is my…

Mobile Speed Is Important

Last week I did a post on The Need For Mobile Speed. Over the weekend I used the points in that post to increase the mobile speed of three more of my blogs. Those blogs were my Buy Online Lotto Tickets, Get Online Lottery and A Loving Memorial. While it was easier having a template to follow I found that different sites have different hurdles to jump. I persevered all the same because mobile speed is important! Why Mobile Speed Is Important As I mentioned in my previous post my latest need for mobile speed was brought on by my good mate Mitch's post. You'll find links to his exceptional posts about his search for improving mobile speed in my previous post. Mobile speed is important to me because I need to keep Google happy in order to get a good listing in their search engines. Having to please Google now makes me laugh with the knowledge of previous posts such as Google Sucks and Does Google Control Your Blog. There are a whole lot of other posts where I have a go at Google but this one is about why mobile speed is important not about Google's many failings. As you can see, the results were not as good as my easy Sports Betting blog but it was the best I could do. I'm more than happy that everything was in the green. Apart from keeping Google happy mobile speed is important if you're at all interested in making money online.…

The Need For Mobile Speed

Improving Mobile Speed Mobile Speed is important! As much as it pains me to say this, if we want to get more traffic we need to keep Google happy. Failing this would cause us to lose our standing in the search engine causing a huge drop in traffic resulting in less income. And we don't want that do we. I've written several posts on how to boost the speed of your WordPress blog. One of the later ones was when I moved to Inmotion Hosting a VPS host because a shared hosting was just too slow. That post was called WassupBlog Now Hosted On A VPS Host. Yeah, I come up with some killer titles :tongue_laugh_ee: I followed that post with How To Optimize Your WordPress Blog. Although I would have been more than happy to leave it at that I happened to come across one of Mitch's Mobile Friendly vs Mobile-Speed post. I already knew my blogs are mobile friendly because I use Flexsqueeze. I assumed that the mobile speed would be the same as the desktop speed but alas, this is not the case. This post is about increasing the mobile speed of my Best Online Sports Betting blog. Unfortunately I didn't take a screen shot of the results before I started updating the mobile speed of that blog but I did leave a comment on Mitch's post and it was 60. The image below shows the current speed after all my tweaking. Pretty good huh? You can see how…
