How To Make A Playlist On YouTube - Update 2014

0:00 If you'd like to set up a YouTube channel, whether it is to listen to music, keep a library of cool videos or to set up different sections on your YouTube channel for business, then stay tuned, watch this short video and I'll show you exactly how.

0:30 There are a number of reasons why you would want to set up a playlist on YouTube but, either way, how you set it up is the exact same way.

0:42 To get to'Playlist' go up to the top and click on 'Video Manager' and then click on 'Playlists' on the left hand side. To add a playlist, just click on 'New Playlist' and give it a name. This is a good opportunity for you to use keyword research here, just as you would in your video title. Your playlist title should have your keywords in there as well.

1:09 You have the opportunity to list it as Public or Private, just as you
would a normal video. Once you've got the name that you want click on 'Create'.
You also have a playlist description just like you have a video description. Put
in your keywords here too so that it will help rank your playlist in Google and Youtube.

1:34 To add a video, just click on 'Add Video By URL'. Then you can add videos from other channels or your own channel, so, if you want to have music videos or particular other videos, you can add them there. In this case I'm going to add my videos.

1:50 I go into my 'Video Manager', and I'm going to just copy some of these here, then just paste it into the Add Video field and then click on add. I take another one, and then add again, and paste that. You can keep adding as many videos as your want in here and move them around, in whichever order I want, so that they're in a playlist you want on your channel.

2:52 If you want to have your videos in more than one playlist, then uncheck that box and, then, just put them in the playlist that you want. You have the opportunity to allow others to embed this playlist and, also, to like or dislike your playlist, just as you would with your videos.

3:06 When you've finished and you've got all the videos in the order that you want, click on 'Done'. Now, if you want to share this, if you want to embed it, click on 'Share', and then you can share your videos through Facebook, Google+, Blogger, etc. etc., just as you would a normal video.

3:25 If you want to embed it, you click on the 'Embed' link. Copy this code, put it on your page or your site and you'll have that embedded.

3:48 If you want to add more videos, click on 'Edit'. And if you want to delete a playlist, just click on 'Delete Playlist', right there. Click 'Yes, Delete It' and it will be gone, off your channel.

4:03 And when you have the playlist that you want, you can, then, put them on the front of you channel, right here, so, you can add playlists in sections along here, so people can see the different topics you have on your videos, and then go to that particular playlist and watch all those videos in that particular topic.

4:20 There you go, that is how quickly and easily set up a playlist on your YouTube channel. This is very effective when you've got videos in different sections that you want to keep together, so people can find them easier on your channel.
