If you are looking for an article on Youtube Keyword Research, then look no further. This article will provide tricks to get your videos ranked higher. There are two ways to do keyword research, and in this video, I’ll show you how to do both.
Keyword research is an essential part of your video creation process. It helps you in two ways:
First, it gives you an idea about what to create in the first place. If no one is searching for that topic, then why would anyone watch? You may think, “I’ll just make this tutorial, and if people find out, they will come.” This doesn’t work.
Second, it helps you market your video. If no one is searching for that topic, then how will anyone find out about your video? You have to create a plan of action so people can discover what you’ve made.
In plain terms, keyword research is the art of finding what your customers want to know. So let’s take a look at the different ways to do keyword research.
The first and more complicated way to do keyword research is a method called “alphabet soup.” This method involves going to the YouTube search bar with a keyword idea (for example, “how to bake a chocolate cake”) and cycling through all options. Check out the below images as an example.
The first example is “how to bake a chocolate cake.”
The following example includes our original keyword plus the letter “a”
You’d repeat this step until you’ve completed the entire alphabet. Unfortunately, this is the “hard way because you have no idea which video you should make based on the keyword. This could result in you creating a video that is too competitive and results in no viewers.
