  • YouTube channel keywords: how to choose them for your topic and where to add in the settings?


    This is the third step in which we will figure out how to choose and where to write the keywords for the YouTube channel.

    Do not confuse channel keywords with tags that are written separately for each video. We'll talk about tags when we upload a video and optimize it. Yes, in fact - it is the same, but we will consider them a little differently.

    How to choose keywords for the channel?

    Keywords are popular user queries that describe the direction of your channel. They are needed to make it easier for search engines to determine what your channel is about.

    To recognize them, you just need to think logically. Determine who your audience is and what they should search for in order to reach your channel. Next, several services are included that will allow you to find additional ideas for keywords.

    Sort your theme into keywords

    We recommend opening a text document and writing out all the queries that come to mind first.

    For example, the subject is sports. Let's say that a channel with this theme will publish videos about how to do exercises, nutrition tips, recipes, motivational videos, weight loss, and so on.

    We think that your target audience will gain in the search.

    We write out all the ideas, then we select the best.

    Analyze competitive channels

    Here we'll use a special plug-in for YouTube, which allows you to spy on the keywords of any channel for free. It is called vidIQ Vision.

    • Register an account at www.vidiq.com.
    • Install the vidIQ Vision plugin for the browser (i.e. Google Chrome, Firefox)
    • Go to YouTube and log in to the plugin. You will notice it, it will be displayed to the right of the video. After authorization, the statistics for each video will also be shown on the right.

    After you install this plugin, go to any channel on your subject and see all the keywords that are used on it.

    So you need to go around various projects in your subject and write out all the relevant keywords in the table.

    Brand Queries

    We recommend adding brand queries to the list of keywords. Those queries will be used to search for your YouTube channel. This can be the project name, first and last names of the channel's authors, nickname, and so on.

    Use search engine hint services

    The last step is to use Google or other search engine tooltips and keyword databases.

    It is easier and more convenient to use the Google service. Now we need to select the most popular and appropriate search queries, as well as find additional words.

    Thus, you will create a list of the main keywords for the YouTube channel in your niche.

    Where to add channel keywords?

    It remains to add the keywords to the settings. But first, in a text document, you need to put all keywords that consist of more than one word in quotation marks, otherwise, they will be split into separate words.


    "cheapdeveloper.com" "remote work" "freelance work" "free guides" "earning on the Internet"

    Next, follow the instructions

    • Go to YouTube Studio.

    YouTube channel keywords: how to choose them for your topic and where to add in the settings?

    • Click on settings and select channel

    YouTube channel keywords: how to choose them for your topic and where to add in the settings?

    • Enter your keywords in the keywords box and save it.

    We'll go back to this tab later to configure other features. We have already sorted out the keywords.

    Write the remaining questions in the comments, and we will be happy to help.

      Hi, guys. In this article, we will talk about how to add links to your YouTube channel so that guests and subscribers can go to your other resources and social networks.
      Links in the channel header play a significant role, they are very often used by YouTube users. By inserting links to your social networks, project groups, or website, you are guaranteed to convert some of the traffic from YouTube to subscribers on these resources.
      You can add any links there, even to affiliate products on your main topic. Many people do this, thereby monetizing their channel from scratch.
      If you have a new channel, the links in the header are not displayed immediately.

      To add links to the YouTube channel, you need to go to the "About" section, where we made a description of the channel yesterday, and find the "Links" button below the description.

      Or the second option is to move the cursor over the channel heading and click on the pencil that appears in the upper right corner, where you need to select the “Edit links”.

      A maximum of 5 links can be displayed in the header, you can select the desired number and click "Add".

      Click "Finish" and see what happened in the header.
      Everything is fine, if necessary, then you can change something.

      In the previous article, we figured out how to choose the necessary keywords for your YouTube channel theme, and in this article, we will make a good description of the channel on YouTube.
      Why do you need a YouTube channel description?
      Any text is the best source of information for search engines. The search robot will not be able to recognize and understand images, videos, or audio as accurately as text. This is why channel descriptions, titles, and video descriptions play a very important role in successful development on YouTube.
      Moreover, you only need to spend 20-30 minutes writing the text once and then make adjustments if necessary. Don't be lazy, read on, and make your project one more step more successful.
      Writing a cool and original description
      In general, the description should fully reveal the idea and subject of the channel. Tell the user who will read what it is about.
      You need to keep within 1000 characters. It is advisable not to write the text in one continuous paragraph, but to break it down nicely and make it easier to read.
      To begin with, you can type a template for your description in any text document, and then copy it and paste where necessary.
      A few recommendations:
      Use keywords in the text. You just need to insert them naturally, and not just solidly separated by a comma. Search engines are not fools either, they will see all re-optimization, apply filters, and “publicly lower” you in the search results. Do not forget about brand queries. Do not try to sell something in the channel description and insert links. The links will still be inactive. Describe about the project, what it does, and what videos are published on it. Show your expertise in the niche that the channel is dedicated to. You can tell something interesting about yourself or other authors of the channel. You can specify the days and times when new videos are released. If you have any contests for subscribers on your channel, you can make an announcement and talk about prizes. At the end of the description, you can add a small call to subscribe. Adding the description on YouTube channel
      To add a description on your YouTube channel click on the "customize channel" button on the main page.

      Now on the customization page navigate to the "About" section and click on the "Channel description" button.

      Write your channel description in the box and click "Done" when finished.

      That's all sorted out.
      If there is anything to add about the description of the YouTube channel, then write in the comments.

      Is a good channel name important?
      In general, yes - the "name" of the YouTube channel is a very important element in its further promotion, it is your brand, which, in order to become successful, must be remembered and spread throughout the Internet.
      But no matter what ingenious name you come up with, success will still depend on the quality of the content you upload. Therefore, do not get too hung up and do not think that your channel is not gaining popularity from the chosen name. Come up with a simple and understandable name for your target audience.
      A few principles of what it should be:
      Simple. Easy to read. Easy to remember. Not long. Transmitting the meaning of the channel and its theme. In English, or translate. Consider your primary audience. Also, do not violate the basic rules of YouTube and create an account with the name or nickname of a famous person or project.
      How to come up with a YouTube channel name?
      Instructions that are suitable for both boys and girls. Let's start generating options.
      It's better to write down all your ideas!
      First of all, we recommend opening a text document or taking a blank sheet of paper with a pen, where we will write down everything that comes to mind.

      Even the most stupid ideas. Usually from the most stupid ideas, brilliant options appear. When the whole list is in front of your eyes, it is easier to come up with something new and play word forms with those that already exist.
      Based on channel content
      What topics are you planning to shoot and upload videos to YouTube? Think about how you can combine all this in one title. So that a person who gets on your channel immediately understands what they can find on it, and whether they should subscribe to it.
      Give the channel your name
      We want to say right away that the channels on which the author’s personality is revealed become faster successful and popular. It’s more interesting to follow a living person who is doing something than a channel that just uploads videos, and it’s not clear who the author is.
      Channels are often called by their first and last names. A name becomes a brand, it is listened to and trusted. The more trust you have, the more your product or service will be bought, the more advertisers will want to buy ads from you, and so on. Your brand on the Internet is a lot of money.
      Analysis of competitors and popular channels
      After you have brainwashed yourself, remove all ideas from your head, you can turn to the search. See the names of similar and popular channels.
      Tip: beginners should not compare themselves with such large projects that have millions of subscribers. But when you watch their videos, try to find constant ideas and tricks that they use, and apply them to your project.
      Many people use various additions in the names, such as: TV, channel, shows, club, vlog, diary, magazine, etc., somewhere they are really consonant and are well suited to the name or nickname. Try it, maybe something will suit you. When compiling a list of options, read them out loud and listen to how they sound, like or not.
      Name for the channel's subject
      In another way, we can say that the names are sharpened for the search query of users. When the name makes it completely clear which videos are placed on it.
      For example: cartoons, travel, earning money on the Internet, recipes, and others.
      Generate names for your channel with keywords, but make sure that it is not long.
      Use other people's brains
      You can find creative guys on any freelance exchanges or you can arrange a contest among your acquaintances and friends for free somewhere on a social network, maybe they will give you cool name and fun ideas.
      Take your time and work with the list
      Now that you've added dozens of name ideas to your list, play with phrases, rhymes, synonyms, and so on. Choose the best option, you can consult with your friends, read them the options and listen to their opinions.
      If you don't have any more ideas, postpone this session until the next day, in the morning, or during another session, you may come up with some original ideas. Usually, this happens when you sit and strain, nothing comes up, and you go with friends to walk on the street or play sports, different brilliant ideas start to climb into your head, just have time to write them down.
      We hope this article will help you in choosing the name for your YouTube channel.
      If you have questions or suggestions, then ask in the comments. We wish you all good luck.

If you previously registered and created a single account on Google, then in order to create your channel, you need to log in to it. In this case, you can skip the instructions for creating a new account and go to the section "How to create a channel on YouTube".
      Well, and who is a complete beginner, let's start by the procedure.

In this case, enter your desired channel name and confirm that you agree with all the rules of Google. That's it In any case, you can change the name of your channel in the future.
      Congratulations! You have created a completely empty new YouTube channel. Now we will look at how you can create a second channel and the main account settings, and in subsequent articles, we will focus on configuring the channel itself (appearance, optimization, design, etc.).
      How to create a second channel
      You can create multiple channels on one Google account. To do this, go back to "YouTube Settings."
      Instead of the button where it was simply written “Create a channel”, you see the button “Show all channels or create a new one”.

      Let's look at the necessary account settings
      General information

      Hello to all novice YouTubers and video bloggers. Today we are starting a new large section dedicated to the development of the channel and earnings on YouTube.
      We will analyze YouTube from A to Z in a clear language so that everyone can figure out where to start and how to act.
      A little background
      For a few years, we have been working remotely, studying, and creating various sources of income through the Internet. YouTube wasn't our priority before until we uploaded a few videos to it and saw that they started to bring us passive income.
      Took a video and uploaded it to the channel, users watch it, and you just make a profit from it for the rest of your life. But it's not enough just to shoot and upload a video so that the channel starts to make money, you need to know at least the basics of video editing, channel optimization, and marketing.
      The development of the channel can be compared to the development of a regular blog.

      Where do I start?
      Let's arrange a small reality show “how to become a video blogger” with a full report in the form of educational content on this blog.
      We won't start from scratch. As we have a channel that is currently filled with videos, most of which are “gray”, that is, I downloaded other people's videos and uploaded them to my channel, some with copyright infringement. I plan to get rid of them soon and leave only my author's content.
      The biggest problem that stops
      The biggest problem to start shooting video on a channel is not the technical ability to set everything up, but the psychological one. Many are afraid of the camera. It seems that everyone knows what to say, and when you turn on the recording, your head becomes empty.
      Step-by-step plan for YouTube channel development
      The whole process can be roughly divided into 9 stages:
      Selection and analysis of the channel topic. Monetization Drawing up a content plan. Create and configure a channel. Registration. Video recording and editing. Uploading and optimizing videos. Tracking results. Promotion and advertising. The main thing, following all these points is to find your style and develop your strategy. Of course, everything you do at first will look like someone else. But this is not scary, it is a law of nature, since childhood we have been copying everything that we see and hear.

      Let's now look at each stage separately, what it consists of.
      Step 1. Niche selection and channel topic analysis
      The study of the channels. Select multiple topics for which you will shoot video. Analysis of the topic that you have chosen, whether it is interesting and relevant to YouTube viewers. Define your target audience. Study your competitors. Drawing up an approximate structure of your niche. Step 2. Monetization
      Someone will say that you do not need to think about earning money at first, but we do not think so. The success of any project depends on how much money it brings. The more it brings, the more the authors want to make high-quality and useful content for their viewers.
      Learn all the ways you can make money on YouTube. Search for how you can monetize your niche. View ways to earn competitive channels. Making a list of affiliate programs on your topic. Step 3. Content plan
      Learning to plan content. Making a list of at least 100 ideas for videos. Step 4. Create and configure a channel
      Creating a channel on YouTube. Correctly configure it. Channel optimization. Step 5. Design
      Ordering the design of the YouTube header or self-design. Learn the ways and secrets of designing screensavers for videos. The order from designers to design templates for videos or your own implementation. Stage 6. Video recording and editing
      This is a separate topic that requires constant development and improvement.
      Learn to shoot live video. Learn to shoot screencasts (video from the screen). Learn to make at least a simple editing of captured videos. Selection and purchase of good equipment. Step 7. Upload and optimize the video
      Learn to upload a video to a channel. Learn how to optimize your video (collecting requests, compiling catchy titles, tags, descriptions, etc.). Step 8. Track Results
      Learn how to digitize monthly. Understand YouTube analytics. Step 9. Promotion and advertising

      Thanks for your attention. Leave comments and ask questions that you need to understand in the section about YouTube.

    • Search engine marketing (SEM): the methods, techniques, safety

      What is search marketing? A few years ago, this term simply did not exist. However, the rapid development of Internet technologies has led not only to the emergence of this trend but also to its amazing popularity. At the moment, search marketing is known as an effective way of promotion, which includes a range of activities aimed at achieving only one goal - to attract customers.

      Table of Contents
      Definition Relevance Goals and Tasks Methods and Technologies Search engine optimization Contextual advertising Social networks Search marketing security Prohibited method: Disadvantages Definition
      If you have not encountered this term before, it's time to get acquainted with it. Search engine marketing involves promotion in search engines in order to attract the target audience. I must say that this is a whole system in which several specialists are involved. They are marketers, programmers, copywriters, designers, etc.
      Compared to other methods of search engine marketing on the Internet has a major advantage. It allows you to reach out to an audience that is interested in the proposal addressed to it. This is due to the fact that it comes to the search engine for an answer to your request. Offering what potential visitors need, you both benefit. Customers get what they're looking for, and you get real customers.
      Search marketing is still a fairly new technology. Therefore, users have a logical question: why is it needed and whether it is needed at all? Let's find out.
      So, the main task of search marketing is to attract potential consumers. And not random, but only interested. After all, the offer is addressed only to those who are already looking for a product or service that you are ready to offer.
      However, in order for a user to notice your website among dozens of competitors, it is necessary to use various methods of search marketing. After all, as a rule, scrolling through the issue, the user rarely browses more than ten sites. Competently using the latest technology, you can be in the top ten and get ahead of competitors in the fight for the attention of potential customers.

      The theoretical definition does not always give an accurate understanding. Let's try to find out how search engine marketing works and what it's for.
      So, suppose that a budding entrepreneur decided to open his own business – to sell lingerie in an online store. This is a popular product that is in demand.
      However, in any area, you need advertising that allows you to attract customers. Because their absence means no profit. For start-up entrepreneurs, all costs are on the account, and any advertising is not cheap.
      There are many companies that offer search marketing among other services. You can even link the amount of payment to the result or make parts. That is, first the entrepreneur receives real customers, and then from the profits makes the rest of the payment for such an unusual method of advertising. Convenient to all.

      Goals and Tasks
      Knowing the definition is not enough. You need to know for what purposes search marketing is used.
      Sales. This is the most obvious task that this method of promotion performs. It is necessary to attract interested buyers to the site who will make a purchase. Image. The more often a person will see the logo of your company, the more likely that he will remember you and sooner or later become a client. Reputation. If we are talking about the promotion in social networks, a large value can have reviews. It is advisable to find a way to encourage buyers to leave real reviews. The more positive opinions can be collected, the greater the level of confidence in the company among potential customers. Competition. The market for goods and services is currently oversaturated. That is why it is especially important to compete and win customers over to your own side. Information. You can offer users up-to-date information about the products and services they are interested in. Even if they don't buy anything right away, your company will become an expert for them. In the future, they can return, choosing you among the many competitors.
      Methods and Technologies
      You need to understand that SEM (search engine marketing) is the whole complex of actions, which may include website optimization, contextual and launching viral advertising, and on the Internet resource work more effectively, attracting target customers and converting them into real buyers. So, what are the technologies of search marketing?
      Contextual advertising. Targeted advertising. Search engine optimization. Social network. Let's talk more about some of the technologies listed above.
      Search engine optimization
      This is only part of the marketing campaign. It involves working directly with the promoted site. Moreover, search engine optimization can be both internal and external. In the first case, work with texts published on the website, metatags, links, etc. In the second case, efforts are aimed at increasing the number of links to third-party resources.

      There are a considerable number of factors that allow you to improve the position of the site in search results. A simple user does not need to know all of them. To do this, there is a separate profession, representatives of which are engaged in search engine optimization.
      Contextual advertising
      This system for placing paid ads, created by the search engines. Each user can create their own ads and thus attract the target audience to their own website.
      The advantage of contextual advertising is that the user does not pay for the fact of placing an advertisement. Payment is charged only if the user clicked on the ad and went to the specified site.
      Another important feature is that to get to the top lines do not need long and painstakingly to optimize the site. You can buy this place for a fee, exhibited by the search engine. It is difficult to predict how high the conversion will be in this case.
      Social networks
      These sites are incredibly popular among the population. It is not surprising that this is quite successfully used by marketers. In this case, often published interesting for users' materials, to support communication in thematic communities, etc. In a sense, marketing in social networks can be called hidden. In addition, this method of advertising is not suitable for all companies. Not every product can be advertised with beautiful photos on social networks and enticing texts.

      Search marketing security
      This question becomes relevant if illegal methods of promotion are used. Conventionally, they are called "gray" and " black".
      Above were described exclusively "white" methods of search marketing, which are loyal to the search engines. Such a conscientious promotion requires a lot of time and effort, but ultimately increases the reputation of the site and gives a reliable result.
      Why then use "gray" and "black" schemes? For the reason that not all site owners are willing to invest a lot of time, effort, and money in the fair promotion. However, you need to understand that when using unscrupulous methods then it will be extremely difficult to restore the reputation of the site or even impossible.
      Prohibited method:
      spamming; automatic link exchange and purchase; placement of links to non-thematic sites. Some of these methods can produce results, but they can also lead to a site ban. Then it will disappear from the search results. Is it worth the risk, each site owner decides for himself.

      Delayed result. It may take several weeks of hard work to see the first results of search marketing. We must understand that this is a task that involves long-term implementation. Do not take it, waiting for lightning-fast results. Dependence on competitors. Even if as a result of well-organized search marketing you will be able to be in a good position in the issuance, all at any time can change because of the actions of your competitors. Complexity. It is almost impossible to carry out the whole complex of measures to promote the company on the Internet alone. This requires a whole team of professionals, not random people. Financial cost. You will have to pay for both professional services and search marketing. For example, if we are talking about contextual advertising. You need to understand that the promotion cannot be absolutely free.
