6 Tips to Enhance your Next YouTube Video Experience

6 Tips to Enhance your Next YouTube Video Experience

YouTube is the 2nd largest search engine after Google. According to a survey report, YouTube produces almost 94 billion page views every month. It’s a primary source of traffic for a lot of blogs, websites, and YouTube is uploading 36 plus hours of video every minute.

What you need to understand, however, is the fact that it’s not enough to just upload the video until you’re a famous company or brand or either a celebrity.

People make videos such as entertainment videos, beauty tips, tutorials, etc. to upload on YouTube but these videos should be of great quality and must contain unique content to get the maximum number of clicks.

Here, in this article, I’ll let you know five advanced SEO tactics to enhance your next YouTube video experience. I’ve tested these 6 tips myself so; that’s a proven success.

1. Use Keywords in the Video’s Title

First of all, you need to start from the video title. It’s the video name which one can use to recognise your video. It represents what’s your video is all about, so always choose it carefully. The title must be user-friendly to the YouTube algorithm for search engine optimisation and the viewer as well.

If, let’s say your video contains the tech tutorials and people will search them, then you can use the auto-complete feature of the search engine (Google).

On the other hand, if you think people will search your video content including music videos or live video tutorials on YouTube then you can use the auto-complete feature of YouTube.

2. Adding Annotations to Your YouTube Videos

When it comes to the YouTube annotations, it’s a particular way to add interactive comments to your video.

These annotations help to push visitors to take action on your content such as;

  • Signing up to your channel
  • A link to watch more videos
  • To add a remark
  • Liking your Facebook Page or Twitter account

3. Video Description

Now comes the description of the video. You have to write short video description of about 2 to 3 lines. Always remember that these starting lines matter a lot to get natural YouTube views.

It might be the theme of your video that what’s your video is all about. Another good way is to add google’s auto-complete keyword phrases as the description of your video.

If the viewer types the same keyword written in the first two lines of the description, then the video will rank higher in the Google search engine.

4. Rename Your Video File Before Uploading

It is another important thing that you need to remember while uploading your video. When you create, edit your video and name it as mov002.avi or random_hbd.mp4. Don’t forget to rename it by your keywords such as  your_keyword.mp4.

When you name your video this way, you’re telling the search engine what’s actually inside your video.

As a matter of fact, Google doesn’t look the video content from inside, but the keyword used in the file will let the search engine know what the video contains. Using the keywords as your video file name helps in ranking the video higher in Google.

5. Use Closed caption YouTube feature

It’s another fantastic feature that allows viewers to see your text over the video. It helps them to understand your video narration, which can be translated into some languages as well.

It’s a transcript of the video that contains text related to the content inside it; your voice in the video will automatically convert into transcript with the help of YouTube’s new algorithm.

Moreover, you can also have the option of writing closed caption, if your video doesn’t contain voice.

6. Tagging & Keyword Research

Now come the ‘Tags’ that are another important feature to get the highest ranking in the search engine. Here’s how to tag a video;

  • You need to list down the important keywords first to put some weight in algorithms.
  • List down general matching keywords and there you go!

Above are some simple and great ways to actually increase the visibility of your YouTube videos and this can get you an opportunity to actually impress your subscribers.

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

1. Breathe

The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

  • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
  • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
  • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

2. Loosen up

After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.

3. Chew slowly

Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

4. Let go

Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

It’s not. Promise.

Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

5. Enjoy the journey

Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

6. Look at the big picture

The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

Will this matter to me…

  • Next week?
  • Next month?
  • Next year?
  • In 10 years?

Hint: No, it won’t.

I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.

8. Practice patience every day

Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

  • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
  • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
  • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

Final thoughts

Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
