    HOW TO GET MORE VIEWS ON YOUTUBE VIDEOS: EPISODE 1

    The meta description is a great way to drive extra traffic to your YouTube videos. On the one hand, it is used by search engines to determine the content of your video. On the other, it is displayed next to your video thumbnail in YouTube & Google search results. A good meta description encourages potential viewers to click through and watch your video.

    HOW TO GET MORE VIEWS ON YOUTUBE VIDEOS: WHAT DO I KNOW?!

    In "the real world" I am paid to teach people the art of Search Engine Optimisation. It's a topic which is often shrouded in mystery but it's actually quite simple. If you want your website (or YouTube video) to do well in search results, then you need to focus on three areas: on-site SEO, off-site SEO and 'code'.

    ON-SITE SEO: this is everything you can see with the naked eye when you visit any given website, plus something called "meta data"

    OFF-SITE SEO: this is any reference to your website, or something on your website, elsewhere on the internet. This includes but is not limited to forums, blogs and social media sites.

    CODE: ultimately, you want clean code that conforms to latest web standards. Using open source such as Wordpress is one way to guarantee you are up to date.

    Throughout this series I will explain the parallels between website SEO & YouTube SEO. In doing so I will show that the techniques used to get more views on any given website can be used to get more views on YouTube videos.

    HOW TO GET MORE VIEWS ON YOUTUBE: A CAVEAT

    First of all, there is no guarantee that this will get you more views on your YouTube videos. That might sound like a ridiculous caveat but if you ever hear an SEO professional say they can guarantee results, run a mile. There is NEVER any guarantee in SEO. I cannot guarantee I will get you more views on your videos.

    What I can do is share with you the same techniques that, so far, haven't let me down. These are totally legitimate ways of improving your search engine exposure over time. Note: this is not a quick fix. This is not about duping search engines or manipulating YouTube statistics. This is about a long term strategy that will probably (remember - no guarantees) help you to get more views on your YouTube videos.

    HOW TO GET MORE VIEWS ON YOUTUBE: WHAT DOES GOOGLE SAY?

    Google actively encourage SEO, as a well optimised web allows them to return more relevant search results. Consequently, they publish some of the best Search Engine Optimisation resources. Here is their take on YouTube SEO:
