Online Video Strategies
Yes, there are now thousands of videos uploaded to YouTube every minute. But that doesn't mean that YOUR video content should not and could not be seen by thousands: Your SM program likely includes devoted followers, and your campaigns and efforts are adding to that number constantly (hopefully!) But what about your Video Content? Your YouTube channe? Are they getting as much attention? According to ReelSEO:
YouTube Optimization = Quality + SEO + Community
The best piece of advice that I can give for optimizing video on YouTube, is that, it is NOT about metadata and text alone. It is no longer enough to rely on titles, descriptions, and tags for getting videos ranked. This may still work for very long-tail keyword queries, but there are now many different YouTube ranking factors, both on-page and off-site. YouTube optimization, especially for competitive keyword phrases – it is about a combination of 1. creating quality, compelling video content 2. publishing using SEO best practices, and 3. engaging with the community, both within as well as outside of YouTube.

Thought For The Day...
In short, in life, as in a football game, the principle to follow is: Hit the line hard; don't foul and don't shirk, but hit the line hard!" -Theodore Roosevelt, The Strenuous Life (1900)
