There are so many Video SEO tutorials that talk about the same stuff like putting keyword tags in your title description, make attractive thumbnails, etc. In this article, I will tell you something different which will propel your video to the number one position, Youtube Channel Optimization.
Strategy No 1 – Video file Meta tags.
Strategy No 2 – Add subtitles to videos.
Strategy No 3 – Reply to each comment.
In reply add keywords, add links of related videos or articles or products you are selling on your website. Lots of traffic and conversions come from these links. When replying to comment again ask questions as then the user will reply and that will increase engagement.
Strategy No 4 – Ask for thumbs up after an AHA moment
Users are unlikely to do thumbs up at the end as they may be thinking of the next video. Some users may have dropped off in between. Ask for thumbs up after an Aha moment which may be in the first 2 minutes.
Strategy No. 5 – Put Subscribe watermark in each video
Strategy No 6 – Give something Specific to Comment upon
Strategy No 7 – Give bonus at the end
Giving a bonus at the end may be a good hook for retaining the viewers and making them watch through the end. People will anticipate and await the bonus if you announce there will be a bonus tip. It also conveys the reward for loyalty.
Strategy No 8 – Use listicles as people wait for next item in the list

Strategy No 9 – Install VideoIQ/ TubeBuddy Browser Extension for Keyword research
This is a Browser extension through which you get analytics for any video you are watching on the right side of the watch page. Hence you do not have to view the page source of each video to know the tags or go to the channel to see channel statistics. I highly recommend anyone of these for video optimization.
Bonus Tip – Get Recommended for Snowball effect
More important than search is to get recommended as a suggested video. that will give a snowball effect. Typically YT recommends videos that have a similar number of views.
