Hello!

I just have started a youtube channel and I was learning a seo to run my channel properly. But I have watched a video of Garyvee where he said "not to follow the guide line just focus on your content and write content for your audience instead of your youtube algorithms.

Now, I want to ask here in this community should I follow the youtube guidelines or should I focus on the content?
