How To Promote YouTube Videos

In last weeks post I told you that making money with YouTube was possible. I also mentioned how one should share their videos via as many social media sites as possible. The reason for doing this is because you want to get as much traffic to those videos as possible. I showed in that post how important traffic was to increasing the earning potential of your videos. Driving traffic to your video is a very important facet of being able to promote YouTube videos. The question is, apart from social media, how can you promote YouTube videos?

Promote YouTube With SEO 

  • SEO, or Search Engine Optimisation, is the best way to drive traffic to your video. How many of you just upload your video and hope for the best? That’s a common newbie mistake and one that is easily to overcome. Using SEO where others don’t will give you a definite advantage. If search engines can find your video they can send a lot of traffic your way.
  • Keywords are important. The first thing you need to do while uploading your video is to give it a catchy title, one that you think people will search for. You then need to fill the keyword field putting in as many keywords as possible. It’s these keywords that help people to find your video. Your title should also contain one or two important keywords. Note: YouTube refers to keywords as tags. If you’re not sure what keywords to choose you can use something like Market Samurai to do all the hard work for you. Read the rest of this entry

Link Removal Requests How I Handle Them

Have you been getting a lot of link removal requests? I know I have and I also know I’m not the only one. My mate Mitch has received so many he even wrote a post about it called Annoying Link Removal Requests! That post also has a video that I’m sure you will find interesting.

The reason your getting all these emails is because for one reason or another the sender of the email has upset Google causing them to receive the “Unnatural Link Warning” email. Here’s one I’ve received just the other day.

We’re seeking to address an “Unnatural Link Warning” that Google has issued to LINK REMOVED. As part of our exploration into this matter, we have discovered the backlinks sources found on your website might be faulty in some way and causing Google’s protocols to react with this response.  We kindly ask you to remove the backlinks listed below as quickly as you possibly can so that we may continue to work with Google in resolving the “Unnatural Link Warning” assigned to us.

Naturally the email may vary but they’re all asking for one thing, for you to remove the link to their site. If they’re smart they may supply the post where the link can be found, if not they expect you to find and remove them. If it’s the latter I simple ignore the email. Read the rest of this entry

You Scratch My Back

You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours is something that has been going on for eons, even in the blogging world. If you’re not sure what it means, basically you’re telling someone that you will gladly do them a favour if they do one for you in return. The first time I used this was when I promised people to follow them to their blog and leave a comment if they left one on my blog. Even though the group I tried to start never really took off the fact that I followed it did put this blog on the map. 

I also used it to get more people to review my blog on Alexa. That worked out pretty well for me too. The reason the ‘you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours’ idea works so well could be because the idea of helping someone in return for help is something that is built into our persona. Even our primate friends do it.
