Is it a bad idea to use my top competitors channel names as tags on my videos? (In the 'Tags' Section, not hashtags) In hopes of ranking in search results when someone searches for my top competitors channels.

Is this a bad idea? Can that be harmful?

I wouldn't try that man :( YT values these 2 things:
Watch-time
Click-rate

When people search for someone's name, its because they want content from THAT person.
If people see your video, they might blow over it, because they specifically asked for your competitor, not you.
This will dampen your click-rate and will be less likely to be recommended to future viewers. Take this from a
veteran with an amazing 0 subs :crown:

Yes, I agree, it's better not to do this. You need to focus on quality content and smart settings for your channel.

And if you don't know how to make settings? Or your settings don't work?

Then it's better not to waste your time, use services like AIR ADS in the AIR Creators Ecosystem, where specialists configure and regulate everything themselves. Do not be afraid to outsource such tasks, it is beneficial, especially if the affiliate program is reliable.

Thanks all for the suggestion. I really don't know that using competitors channel names as tags on my videos can be harmful to my channel.

No people do it all the time just dont over do it .

Even professional youtube growth experts said its a good idea: https://7r6.com/6KlZw

(keep in mind that tags arent as important as they were in old youtube days they still important but not as much.
