A step-by-step guide to how to get more views in YouTube

YouTube is the second largest search engine in the world after Google.

People like it, a lot. It is a channel widely used to promote, entertain, and educate those who use it and has roughly about 22 million visits monthly with the average duration being 40 minutes per session.

To promote their content however, people have started to throw money and sometimes it is through shady means in order to get more views of their content. People are buying YouTube views in a bid to dupe others into thinking that many have watched the content and so should they. While it may have worked before, it is now getting more and more difficult since;

  • YouTube detection capabilities are getting better and better.
  • It is an expensive affair
  • The algorithms are concentrating less on view counts and more on user behavior.

In this article, we highlight a few tips on how to get more views of your content on YouTube.

YouTube has its own search algorithms that are used to display the most relevant video to users. The algorithms decide which videos are best and rank the top of its search results.

Applying any of the following tactics will get your videos more views.

Use of Descriptive and Keyword Rich Titles

Keyword research is most important here, because an interesting and descriptive title will let the algorithm sort for relevancy purposes.

It will then attract users and inform them about the content of the video. One will need to use keyword planner and other keyword research tools.

Use of Quality and Keyword Rich Descriptions

Here you get to describe the video and this in turn informs the search engines exactly what your video is about. People will know what to expect in your video and this increases the click-through-rate. The click-through-rate goes hand in hand with the views. For your description to be relevant, one should use short keywords optimized correctly for the YouTube search engine while at the same time try to capture interest.

Create Transcripts for Your Videos

Closed captions for your videos are a proven way of how to get more views on YouTube more so with the international non-English speaking audiences and the disabled as well.

Use Guest YouTubers

People will be more inclined to clicking on your video when there is a household name in the industry mentioned alongside the results of the search engine. Collaborating with an established industry mogul will prove beneficial in the long run as it may form a relationship bound by reciprocity.

Provide Content That Is either Educative or Entertaining or Both

People will be inclined to remember a video that taught them something new or one that thoroughly entertained them. In that regard, your video, in essence, is supposed to add value to the viewer. If a user finds your content valuable, they will most definitely revisit your page for more.

Optimization of Your Thumbnail Image

Thumbnail images are small graphics files e.g. a superhero image. Wherever they appear within your content can do wonders into increasing your YouTube views. The key is to ensuring that your thumbnail image is in line with the content of your video.

In conclusion, a marketer or content creator can work hard and increase the YouTube views free. The downside of this is that it takes a lot of time and effort whereas use of some of these techniques will get just the same results.

The end result is more YouTube views and that is all that should matter.
