Metadata: What It Is, How It Can Increase Your Youtube Views

Let's see how to optimize your uploads:

vidIQ is known for it’s SEO tools, but there are some things you can do on your own before upgrading to Pro or Boost.

  1. Keep your titles tight - With more than 1B views a day coming from mobile devices, it’s important to make sure your titles are descriptive, but not too long that they become truncated
  2. Consistency is key - Make sure to repeat keywords across your title, description, and tags (where they fit, of course)
  3. Tags should pertain to your video, channel, and content type (No Spam) - Think carefully about what keywords you might use to find your video. Chances are those  YouTube heavily weights watch time and competition rate, if you use tags that don’t pertain to your video, viewers who find your video won’t watch it lowering both metrics! 

Quick Tip! Don’t forget you can copy tags from any videos right from the chrome extension by clicking on the paperclip icon.
