that's some good information. I have a question can you rank hight on YT search with small amount of views?
@mikeliveslife , it depends
Since YouTube search does prioritize relevancy, if your metadata is laser optimized, then that can give you a boost.
However, YouTube sees accumulated watch time as supporting relevancy, so even a less-optimized video that has great watch time will rank high for certain keywords.
So, youtubers that have less views should start by optimizing for less competitive keywords first -- especially when those less competitive keywords currently have unoptimized videos.
very interesting I did't now about it. Thanks for the tipGreat guide. I'm not sure if anyone else pointed this out, but I just wanted to give you a heads up about something. When you're logged into your YouTube account and search for your video it will be in a higher spot than it would if you were logged out. So in other words, YouTube is giving preference to your video because they assume that you'd want it to be more visible for yourself to see in search. This is the same with the rankings that are used in TubeBuddy. The rankings are based on you being logged into your YouTube account. And the same goes for the Google Plus page that was ranking in Google. If you logged out of your account, you wouldn't find it in Google search. Finding the true ranking has always been a headache for me, because I live in Canada and I want to see USA rankings but can't because they give a different ranking depending on your location, even in Google Incognito. For that you need to find a ranktracker that works for YouTube.
Thanks for the guide.
