YouTube SEO Tools and Where to Begin
As you know YouTube is the second largest search engine on the web. So I would suggest you first of all head over to YouTube and type your keyword into the search box. You will then see a drop down box with suggestions based on relevant queries other people have previously searched on YouTube.
This is a good way to measure how popular your keywords are and give you some more ideas. Similarly just do the same thing on Google and you will see how high your keywords are ranking.
We all know there are plenty of places to share on social media but another good practice is repurposing content. This is taking old content including videos and creatively implementing it in new ways and formats. For example, you could repurpose a popular blog post as a video, podcast, a vlog, infographic, a Slidshare or social media post. When it comes down to repurposing the possibilities are endless.
You can use tools such as Hootsuite and Buffer which are the two most popular creative sharing sites. They also both have free plans. It means more editing but that’s the fun part. As we know SEO is mainly about keywords so lets start with some keyword tools. Also check out this SEO playlist below with some great SEO advice.
