    The other day I attended a 2 hour online webinar of Sunny Lenarduzzi whose a Youtuber who grew her channel from nearly 0 to 45k subscribers in a year. She revealed a lot of her secrets, like putting keywords in your Thumbnail file and Video File, but one that stood out was how she could get a lot of people to search for her videos on Google, which raised her SEO, as Youtube is owned by Google.

    She did this in social medias like Instagram where there really isn't a link to send your viewers to your video except on your bio. So there she would upload just a 15 second teaser of her video which then fades out, and then she tells people to search "Sunny Lenarduzzi VIDEO NAME" on google.

    She would do something similar on Snapchat. 1-2 snaps promoting her video and then tell the viewers to get ready to screen shot the next snap, which would then be an image that showed instructions to search for her video on Google.

    On Facebook, she would upload the same 15 second teaser video and then just link to her video directly. But I wonder is if instead I directed people to a link to Google as if they searched for my video. What I mean by this is, first go google your video, and then use that url. It would require an extra click for each person, but it might be worth it.

    PositivelyBrainwashed, thanks for sharing this "new tip". This is first time I heard about this YouTube SEO method, but it sound like doable. Many years ago, a "guru" also told me to do the same at Google (search your website keyword) and then browse page by page until you see your website (then click at your website). This is call "organic search".

    Since YouTube also owned by Google, I believe the same method should working well at YouTube too.

    Cheers :)

    That only works if you have a big following on social media though.

    Google+ and blogspot help with google search though.

    Really good idea thank you for sharing, it's definitely important to share on social media but that strategy seems like something I'll try out.

    this is a really interesting strategy, but I'm also skeptical. It seems like extra steps for people on an 'instant gratification' platform.
    I wonder how many people will actually go to such lengths to find your content. And how many would need to do it in order to make an impact?

    Also, on the facebook part: Derral Eves gave opposite advice- he said to NEVER link to YouTube videos on facebook; he went so far as to say, NEVER even mention YouTube in a facebook video post. He says this is because AB testing shows that facebook nerfs any post with reference to their big video competitor, YouTube. And it's logical...why would facebook help you send people off their platform?

    I hate sounding so negative. I think her ideas are creative.
