What Is Optimization Alpha? ( A Basic Walkthrough)
On page optimization has multiple factors, multiple tactics and even strategies that can be used to gain an advantage over your competition.
Today I want to talk about YouTube video optimization and some things that I have noticed that work well and that we have automated into our Optimization Alpha tool.
As Optimization Alpha has evolved we have also included WordPress SEO elements which I will cover later in the series.
So let's consider first what we can accomplish with YouTube SEO.
Personally I don't use YouTube with growing my channel subscriptions or ranking my videos as the main goal...Of course it’s a benefit when that happens, but for me it is a first tier link strategy to get a blog post ranking and drive social traffic to my web pages.
You may have different goals and there is no denying that YouTube can drive a ton of traffic.
It is the second largest search engine in the world.
We want to rank both on YouTube and on Google to maximize our traffic and we want to encourage social sharing for even more traffic.
So you should decide on what your own goals are first, and do keep in mind that YouTube videos rank extremely well in Google.
Here are some basics that I find work well when optimizing
YouTube videos and these include:
This is not an exhaustive list, I think it's enough for today to get your thought process and creative juices flowing and in the next lesson we will go deeper into some of these and introduce other factors that you can take into consideration.
Remember too that Optimization Alpha offers
