How To Implement Good YouTube Ranking Factors [Infographic]

Social media has become the the most vital part of any promotion on the Internet. If you manage to get your message into a viral social media stream, you can expect great results. Getting there though is anything but easy. Not only do you have to create something that people will feel they need to have a look at, but you also have to implement good SEO factors in order to get seen in the search engines. The latter is of course an art that takes a lot of time to learn and master. Since it is an always changing entity of search engine algorithms, it’s impossible to get it 100% each and every time. The intricate ranking factors go far beyond what anyone can keep in their heads. However, just knowing the most common ranking factors is usually enough to get something in front of the eyes of many.

Mastering every single social media platform and its SEO ranking factors is virtually impossible, but you should be able to perfect the ranking factors of the platforms you use most. There are usually three that are prominent in everyone’s arsenal. However, today we are going to concentrate on YouTube. It’s a social media platform that can yield an audience greater than any of the other social media services available to us.

YouTube has a unique position within the social media ecosystem. It’s not only unique when it comes to the format of its content, but also in the amount of revisits each content entity can receive. YouTube’s ranking factors become ultimately important when you start thinking about these advantages. If you want to be seen, you have to be able to master the way YouTube videos are indexed and how people search for them.

If you have the right ranking factors incorporated into your video titles etc., you can be quite sure to receive at least a good amount of traffic if your videos are appealing and well done. Sometimes not knowing how to title your video in order for it to appeal to people can destroy a video’s change at success. So what are the ranking factors for YouTube, and how do we implement them?

    Nice article, Richard.

    Fantastic Info Graphic on YouTube Ranking Factors…..

    Agree that some of the tips mentioned do help, somewhat….
