Now learn how you can Rank Videos High on YouTube and Google, let’s dive into the step-by-step system that I used to generate this top-5 ranking.
Step #1: Find Video Keywords
Like Regular Search Engine Optimization (SEO), the YouTube SEO process starts with keyword research.
Your goal is to find “Video keywords “ Video Keywords :- Are Keywords that have YouTube results on the first page of Google.
These are called, “Video Keywords”.
Unlike a normal Search Engine Result Page with 10 webpage results, with Video Keywords, Google reserves a good chunk of the first page for video results.
In general, Google tends to use video results for these types of keywords:
How-to keywords (“how to make pizza”)
Tutorials (“learn Photoshop”)
Anything fitness or sports related (“Jumping”)
Funny videos (“Cute animals”)
Why is this important?
Well, let’s say you optimize your video around a keyword that doesn’t have any video results in Google.
In that case, you’ll ONLY get traffic from people searching on YouTube.
But if you optimize for Video Keywords, you’ll also get targeted traffic to your video directly from Google’s first page.
How to Find Video Keywords
The easiest way to find video keywords is to search for keywords in your Business Sector.
Then find if that keyword you searched have YouTube Result ,Like this:
After find keywords , you have to check the search volumes for that keyword.
Suggestion:-we don’t need to go after keywords with massive search volumes.
Just check in Google Keyword Planner that keyword get at least 200 searched per month in google (use google keyword planner to find how many people searched for particular keyword)

If your video quality is not good ,it won’t rank …no matter how optimized it is for SEO
Unlike Google — which can use backlinks and other signals to evaluate the quality of a piece of content - YouTube has no such luxury.
YouTube judge your video’s quality based on how people interact with your business video.
These below are the factors which YouTube Consider to Rank Video at Top Position :-
Video retention: The percentage of your video people tend to watch (the more, the better).
Comments: If people comment, they probably enjoyed the video (or at least watched it)
Subscribes after watching: If someone subscribes to your channel after watching your video that sends a HUGE signal that you have an amazing video.
Shares: How many people share your video on social media sites like Twitter and Google+
Favorites: The number of people that favorite your video or add it to their “Watch Later” playlist.
Thumbs up/Thumbs down: Self explanatory :-)
If you want to see how your videos are performing, you can see user experience data in your YouTube Analytics:
If you have made a well Planned Video you’re Much More likely to get high retention views, likes, comments and all the things that YouTube likes to see in a video.
Make Your Video At Least 2-Minutes Long
longer videos rank better, Like with text-based articles
You Will Observe longer videos outperforming shorter videos in YouTube and Google search.
Now it’s time to optimize your video and upload it to YouTube.
Step #3: Upload Your Video With YouTube SEO in Mind
a) Video File Name
Use Title Keywords in Video File Name
For example, if you wanted to rank for the keyword “How to Become Rich in surat real life with no money india”, you’d want to name your video “How_to_become_rich_in_surat_with_no_money_in_real_life_india.mp4.
b) Video Title
The title of your video should at least 5-words long. That way, you can include your full keyword without keyword-stuffing.
For example, my Diamond Jewellery title is 5 words…only 2 of which are my target keyword:
Description of your video is very Important
Because YouTube and Google can’t “listen” to videos, they rely on your text description to determine your video’s content.
These are basic guidelines for the description:
Add title of your Video at Top and Bottom of your Video
Include Keywords in fist 4 Lines of Description
Make Long Description
Put Link of your Video In Description
Here’s an example of a description for a video optimized around the keyword How to Make Business Video -Step by Step
Just Include keywords related to video help Google and YouTube learn what your video is all about.
Targeted tags not only help you rank for your target keyword…
but get you to you show up more often as a related video in the sidebar area of YouTube
Important Bonus Tip : Include Your Competitor Channel Name in Tagging.
When someone’s watching video has similar tag as your video – boom!– you’re added to the sidebar.
Once you’re done, hit “Save Changes” and your video will go live!
Step #4: Get Video Views
We have already talked about user experience signal so far…which are really important
But in order for your video to rank for competitive keywords, it needs to get A LOT of views.
More views=higher rankings.
But there’s one Important Fact…
…the views need to be Organic/Real.
