Here’s one of my videos that’s currently ranked number one on YouTube search. It also ranks number one on Google search in a total of 77,000 results and shows a huge thumbnail. As a result, it gets consistent traffic, day after day, week after week and year after year.

Wouldn’t you like that?

YouTube shows most relevant results according to the keyword queries that you type in the YouTube search box. Recently, I’ve been interested in resistance band exercises.

If I type resistance band exercise into the YouTube search box, I get a bunch of related YouTube videos that I can watch.

How does the YouTube algorithm work?

  1. Search term
    It’s based upon the search term that I typed into the YouTube search box.
  2. What they watch.
    If I want to see more resistance band exercises because that’s what I’m interested in, I’ll watch a bunch of videos on resistance band exercises.
  3. What they don’t watch.
    If I’m just interested in resistance band exercises, YouTube’s not going to show me videos that are not relevant to resistance band exercises.
  4. How much time they spend watching the videos.
    I might begin watching resistance band exercises but then I might continue watching more videos on resistance band exercises for glutes, resistance band exercises for knees, et cetera. If I binge watch multiple videos in a row, then YouTube will serve us more of those videos because those are the ones I’m interested in. Also, If I watch them all the way through, then YouTube knows that I’m very interested in those particular videos.
  5. Likes and dislikes.
    Obviously, if I liked the video I’ll like and comment on the video. If YouTube sees there’s a lot of engagement on the video, then YouTube will serve us more of those types of videos to the viewer.

    For example, more of those videos will be recommended on the home screen as well as in the suggested videos which appear on the right side of the watch page.
  6. Not interested feedback.
    If the video content doesn’t match the title and the thumbnail, I’m going to give a dislike and not continue watching the video. As a result, the video’s not going to get much engagement because of lost interest in that content.
  7. Which videos have driven the most engagement for a specific query.
    If I’m really interested in the topic of resistance band exercises, I’ll watch more and more of those types of videos. YouTube will service more of those videos because the algorithm knows that I’m interested in that particular topic.

Here are some search discovery tips.

1. Research keyword-optimized phrases.

Tom Leung (YouTube Staff):
One approach is to focus on content that isn’t well-served by other channels today. If you’re making videos in a very crowded category, it could be difficult to outperform the competition. If I were starting a brand new channel today and I said, “I’m going to make a bunch of videos about reviewing phones,” that’s probably a pretty crowded category.

I could do it, I just have to make sure they’re amazing and really provide a much different perspective than what’s currently out there. Once you find that niche where you can establish yourself, you can always expand from there.

It’s always better to start more narrow, then go broader. Sharing your videos with friends and acquaintances in relevant forms across the internet and not just on YouTube is very helpful.

Herman:
Use a tool like TubeBuddy to find keyword phrases that haven’t been discovered. For example, resistance band exercises has a search volume of 40,500 searches per month.

I know that the keyword phrase resistance band exercises is a great search term. The only problem is that it’s super competitive. I want to find other keyword phrases that are not as competitive so I can rank for that particular keyword phrase.

For example, the keyword phrase resistance band exercises for legs and glutes gets a search volume of 880 searches per month. According to TubeBuddy, it gives me a keyword score that says it’s very good. I’ll include that keyword phrase in the title, description, and tags of my video.

The key point is that your keyword phrase should be relevant to the search engines as well as to your viewers.

2. View your top traffic sources in YouTube analytics.
If you view your traffic sources in YouTube analytics and click on YouTube search, you find the keyword queries that people are entering into YouTube search to find your videos.

Make a list of all the keyword queries that people are using to find your videos, then make more of those type of videos.

3. Use Google trends.
Use Google trends to find trending and seasonal topics in your niche. If you find a hot topic related to your niche, jump on it right away and create a video for it. Sometimes when you ride a trending topic, it’ll generate a ton of views to your channel.

4. Create an awesome thumbnail.
Thumbnail’s are like a small display ad in the search engines. If you create an awesome thumbnail, that stands out from your competitors, then your viewer’s are more likely to click on it.

If they don’t click on your thumbnail, they’re not going to watch your video and all that energy and time you spent creating your video will come to waste.

What I often do is create the thumbnail before I’ve even created the video. As I create the video, I get more ideas what I can put into the thumbnail.

Keep in mind that if your video does well in search, it often gets promoted by YouTube in suggested videos. These are the videos that appear on the right side of the page that the person is watching. They also appear below the video on the YouTube app. They also appear on videos that are up next.

Here’s some best practices to get your videos discovered on YouTube search.

  1. Find low competition keywords.
    Use keyword research tools like TubeBuddy to discover low competition keywords that are easy to rank for. There’s no point wasting your time going after high competition keywords if you can’t rank for them.

    Click here to watch my video on how to find low competition keywords.
  2. Create an awesome thumbnail that stands out from your competitors.
    The goal of your thumbnail is to get viewers to click on it so they can watch your video. If they don’t click on your thumbnail, they’re not going to watch your content.

    YouTube says that half of all channels on YouTube have an impressions click through rate between 2% and 10%.

    Keep in mind that your click through rate might be very high at the beginning because subscribers are watching your video.

    Ultimately, you want to compare the click through rate between different videos over the long term.

    Click here to watch my video on how to create an awesome thumbnail.
  3. Create an engaging video.
    If you get a high click through rate and a low average view duration or a low audience retention, that means that people that click on your video but they’re not watching it all the way through.

    When viewers leave within the first few seconds of your video, that means they’re not interested in your content. As a result, that video won’t be promoted by YouTube.

    The ideal scenario for your YouTube video is to get a high click through rate and a high average view duration. If you can do that, your channel will grow really fast.
  4. Create a video series on a related topic.
    The benefit of creating a video series is that people can take a deeper dive into your content.

    YouTube Staff: Tactically, as a creator, if you have a question like “How do I get more traffic from watch next,” you can’t really optimize your videos for a traffic source or a service, but you can for your audience.

    If you really want your viewers to continue watching your videos, one strategy I see some creators doing is of course making really consistent content or a series. That way if those videos start being watched together they’re topically related and they attract the same type of viewer, they’re very likely to come up together in watch next.

    That’s something we sometimes call co-watch. The videos are watched together. That’s one of the signals for ranking. Series are a really powerful way to keep viewers watching.

    Herman:
    Another benefit is that you’ll increase your watch time because people are watching more than one video from your channel and watch time is a great ranking factor.

    Keep in mind that when you create a series of videos, put them in a playlist and link to that playlist for every video that’s in the playlist. This will encourage viewers to watch the next video after they’re finished with the one they’re watching.
  5. Monitor the performance of your videos in YouTube analytics.
    – Log into YouTube studio,
    – click on analytics
    – click see more.
    – Under traffic source, you’ll be able to identify where most of your traffic is coming from.
    – If you click on YouTube search, it’ll show you the search queries that people are entering into the YouTube search engine. It’ll also show you the views, your watch time and the view duration, impressions and impressions click through rate.

    If you want to see more metrics, just click the plus sign. If you find that most of your traffic comes from YouTube Search, try to get more traffic from suggested videos.

How To Get Suggested On YouTube (get free promotion)

Why aren’t my videos getting suggested by YouTube?
What steps can I take to get more traffic from suggested videos?

Watch the video below to learn how to get discovered on YouTube via suggested videos, how suggested videos work, where they appear on YouTube, and how to find the videos from other channels that are recommending your videos.

What are suggested videos?
This is a personalized collection of videos that an individual viewer may be interested in watching next based upon their prior activity on YouTube. Here’s some insights from the YouTube staff.

YouTube Staff: What is changing constantly is the rankings in suggested and those are updated pretty much constantly. We collect over 80 billion bits of information, feedback from the audience every day, and we feed that right back into the system so that they can know which videos are engaging and satisfying the viewers on each suggested list.

YouTube Staff: When you’re saying the ranking is changing, do you mean you change the algorithm or do you mean viewers’ interest are changing?

YouTube Staff: It’s more about viewers’ interest are changing and different viewers are coming in and viewers’ tastes are changing over time. The other thing to think about with these rankings is that they’re actually different for every viewer. You and I could go and watch the same video today at the same time, and the recommendations in suggested that you see will be different based on your history compared to what I see.

If I’ve been watching a lot of cat videos, then YouTube will recommend more cat videos for me to watch on YouTube.

Where do suggested videos appear on YouTube?
They appear to viewers on the right side of the watch page on the “Up Next”, below the video on the YouTube app, and as a next video in autoplay. You can also see which videos are bringing viewers to your channel via suggested videos by going to traffic sources in YouTube Analytics.

How do suggested videos work?
Let’s see what YouTube has to say about it.

YouTube Staff: In analytics, I know this is something a lot of you want to look into if you’re seeing a decline in your performance. Specifically with suggested, when you’re looking at that in YouTube Analytics, there’s literally a list of the videos that people watch last before they either discovered your video or your channel. That’s really powerful information.

You want to go into traffic sources and click on suggested, and what you’ll see there is a list of videos. That’s basically where your traffic’s coming from on the watch page.

It can show you videos that don’t belong to your channel that your audience is also watching. Most of the time, it’s probably videos that are owned by you, but a lot of the time, you can get an idea of what else your viewers are interested in, what they’re watching. If you see trends are not changing over time, you can understand why your audiences’ interest is either increasing or declining.

Videos can be suggested and recommended from other channels including the one you’re watching. YouTube says that viewers tend to watch a lot more videos based upon recommendations from a variety of different channels. Some of the signals that contribute to recommendations are the videos that people see on the right side of the watch page while they’re watching the current video.

YouTube will show videos that are typically related as well as videos from our viewers’ past watch history.

Here’s how to find channels that recommend your content.
Let me show you Morningfame and how this works.
– Click Login to log in to Morningfame.
– Click “Analytics Report.”
– Click “Algorithm.” Under the heading How do YouTube’s Algorithms Promote You, you’ll see YouTube Search, and you can get the “Top Search Terms,” “Top videos,” Google Search, “Top Videos,” and Suggested Videos.
– Click on “Top Recommending Channels,” and you’ll see that vidIQ with 474,000 subscribers is sending 21 views to this video of mine.

If I click “Show more sending videos from vidIQ,” then it shows other videos from vidIQ that are sending views to my other videos on my channel. If I click on “Show more receiving videos,” I can see that vidIQ has sent 18 views to this video. This happens every 28 days. You can also see that I get suggested views from videos on my own channel.

You can see that this video is sending 492 views to all these videos on my channel.

Click here link to get access to Morningfame.

How can you use this information to get more views from suggested videos?
After you’ve identified the videos and channels that are sending you suggested traffic, create more of those types of videos and link them to each other.

You can do this by putting them into a playlist that link to the playlist from each of the videos on the playlist.

Here are some suggested video tips so you can get more views from suggested videos.

  1. Make strong calls to action.
    Instead of just ending your video, suggest to viewers what they should watch next. Ideally, this would be a similar video to the one that they’ve just watched.
  2. Create a series of videos that are organically connected.
    When you think of a video topic, don’t just think about a solo video, but think about a series of videos that takes a deeper dive into your content.

    YouTube Staff: Tactically, as a creator, if you have a question like “how do I get more traffic from watch next,” You can’t really optimize your videos for a traffic source or a service, but you can for your audience. If you really want your viewers to continue watching your videos, one strategy I see some creators doing is, of course, making really consistent content or a series.

    That way, if those videos start being watched together, they’re topically related, and they attract the same type of viewer, they’re really likely going to come up next to each other in watch next. That’s something I think sometimes we call it co-watch, like videos that are watched together. That’s one of the signals that inform ranking. Series are a really powerful way to keep viewers watching.
  3. Create playlists.
    Add a series of videos to a playlist and link to that playlist from the video that they’re just watching. For every video on the playlist, link to that playlist using a card or end screen, so you can binge-watch more of your videos. When people watch more than one video in a playlist, it’ll extend the session time of that particular video.

    Increased session time leads to more watch time, which is a big ranking factor on YouTube.
  4. Avoid long endings.
    Don’t telegraph the ending in your video by saying something like, “That’s all I have for you.” It will shorten the watch time of that particular video.
  5. Create videos in popular formats.
    For example, you should make a list-type video then people know what to expect next in the video.

    You can just create a series of bullet points that you want to talk about so people will know what to expect next.
  6. Improve your click-through rate by creating better thumbnails.
    If viewers don’t click on your thumbnail when they see it in the search engines or on the right side of the watch page for suggested videos, they’re not going to watch your video. If they don’t watch your video, all that time and effort you put into creating your video will be wasted.

    Click here to download my free thumbnail checklist. You will receive 10 ways to make your thumbnail stand out on YouTube.
  7. Create a title that complements your thumbnail.
    Your title should include an optimized keyword phrase as well as something compelling for the viewer.

    Click here to get my secret formula for writing video titles that get ranked in the search engines.
  8. Create an engaging video.
    If you want to get suggested traffic from other channels, you need to have a high click-through rate and high average view duration. This means you need to have a great thumbnail as well as an engaging video. Ideally, you want to have 50% of your viewers watching your video all the way through. If you can achieve this, then YouTube will promote your video via suggested videos.

Another way to get discovered on YouTube is via YouTube Search. YouTube shows the most relevant results in the YouTube search engine based upon what somebody types into the YouTube search box. Click here to watch my next video to learn how to get your videos discovered in YouTube Search.

  1. Know your target audience.
    If you don’t know your audience you’ll have no audience. Think about your ideal subscriber…
    What are their problems?
    What are their struggles?
    What value can you provide to them?
    What are some of their most frequently asked questions?

    Instead of giving a general answer like all people on the Internet try to drill down several levels to get more details.

    The more you know about your ideal subscriber the easier it is to create the right content for them.

    You might get comments like, “I was just thinking of that”, “you read my mind.

How To Write A Title For Your Next YouTube Video

Stop writing titles that don’t grab viewer’s attention or get more views.

I’m going to show you how to write a title for your next YouTube video, even if you don’t have a clue, so your videos can be found in YouTube search and/or Google search.

Here’s one of my videos that currently ranks on the first page of Google and also on the first page of YouTube.

Here’s a second video with a similar title that currently ranks on the carousel on Google, and on the first page of YouTube.

1. Identify the titles of your top videos.
These are videos that have proven to be winners because I’ve got a lot of traffic from search or suggested.

Log into your YouTube channel. Click YouTube studio, click analytics, under overview, it’ll give you the videos that drove the most subscriptions.


For example, this video, how to translate YouTube videos to English or another language is doing very well in YouTube Search and Google search.


If you want to drill down and get more details, just click “see more”. You’ll identify the top videos on your channel that have got the most views, most watch time hours, most subscriptions, most revenue, most impressions or most impressions click through rate. This is in the last 28 days or you can change it to last 90 days.

As you can see, this is one of the top traffic getting videos on my channel because it has a keyword optimized title.


Let’s see where this video ranks in the search engines. I’m going to do an incognito search so it won’t be affected by my search history.


As you can see, in Google search, I’ve got a huge thumbnail which attracts a lot of traffic.

Let’s check YouTube search.


It’s also number one in YouTube search so it’s is going to bring in a lot of traffic as well.

2. Make a similar video.
Create a similar video that approaches the content from a different angle. Use the same keyword optimized phrase in your title.


For example, I created another video with a similar title, “how to translate YouTube videos to subtitles or other languages.

Let’s check where it ranks in Google search.

Currently it ranks number three on the carousel on Google.


Let’s check YouTube search. We’ve got to go incognito again. As you can see, it currently ranks number one in YouTube search.


Here’s the other video that I showed you previously, which ranks number five.

3. Analyze your top performing videos.
Obviously the top videos convinced viewers to subscribe more than your other videos, so you want to analyze the topic, the title, the thumbnail, and the format.

Ask yourself, what caused viewers to subscribe to your channel by watching this video?

If I drill down into the analytics of my top video, I can see where most of the traffic is coming from.

As you can see, most of it is coming from external, which is Google search and other traffic comes from YouTube search.

If I click see more, I can see that this video gets a 6.6% impressions click through rate. This measures how often viewers have watched the video after seeing an impression. So if they see the thumbnail in YouTube search and click on it, that’ll give you a high impressions click through rate.

I’ll also study the structure of the video so I can use it for my next video. Ask yourself, what kind of hook did you use at the beginning of your video to grab viewers attention? How was your delivery? How did you keep viewers engaged throughout the video? How did you create a captivating thumbnail image?

4. Write a similar title.
Use the exact keyword phrase at the beginning of your title then use something different at the end.

For example, I used the exact keyword optimized phrase, “how to translate YouTube videos into English” for my second video. Then I just added “subtitles, or other languages” to the end of the title. You can do the same for your top videos. Just identify the top videos on your channel. Then create more of those types of videos with different titles.

5. Create a series of videos and put them in a playlist.

Since you’ve already identified one of the top performing videos on your channel, why not create a series of those videos and put them in a playlist. Each video that you add to the playlist can link to a similar video in the playlist to keep people watching more of your videos.

The goal of YouTube is to keep people on the YouTube platform by watching more and more videos, so why not make it easier for your viewers to watch more videos from your own channel rather than somebody else’s channel.

6.  Repeat the process for your other top videos.
Identify other top performing videos on your channel and create more of them. If you do this on a regular bases, you’ll get more views and subscribers and grow your channel faster.

What if you don’t have any top performing videos because you have a small channel or you’re just starting out on YouTube?

Don’t worry.

HOW TO TITLE YOUTUBE VIDEOS (My Secret Video Title Writing Formula)

Imagine getting a higher click through rate on your YouTube videos because you crafted compelling video titles, You’ll get higher rankings, more views, more subscribers, and grow your channel faster.

Watch the video below to discover my secret formula on how to title your YouTube videos, even if you’ve never had any copywriting experience.

There’s two parts to writing compelling video titles. The first part is to satisfy the search engines so people can find your videos in YouTube Search.

The second part of writing a video title is to add something compelling for your viewers, so they’ll be curious to check out your video.

Step one your main keyword in the YouTube suggestion box.

The purpose of doing this is to tap into the mind of your potential viewers.

If I enter how to build a birdhouse in the YouTube suggestion box, I get other suggestions… how to build a bird feeder, how to build a birdcage, Do it yourself birdhouse, cardboard birds in bird house, how to build a bird nest, log cabin birdhouse, et cetera. These are all search phrases that people are entering into YouTube search to get the answers to their questions.

Step two at a letter or underscore before or after your main keyword phrase.

If I add underscore space before build a birdhouse, I get other suggestions like how to build a birdhouse in Minecraft, had to build a birdhouse out of wood, how to build a birdhouse with Popsicle sticks, et cetera. If I add space underscore after build a birdhouse, I get build a birdhouse in your soul, build a birdhouse plans, build a bird house with Popsicle sticks, build a little bird house with your soul lyrics, et cetera.

I can also add letters before or after the main keyword phrase, so I’ve put a space then B. I get how to build a basic good house, how to build a Bluebird bird house, how to build a big bird house, how to build a birdhouse step-by-step.

I can also choose alternative words that mean the same like make a bird house so I can just repeat the process for make a bird house. So I’ve got make a bird house, make a bird house in your soul, make a birdhouse from milk carton, et cetera. If I who put underscore space at the beginning, I get all the how to combinations. If I put space underscore at the end, Then I get make a little birdhouse in your soul lyrics make a little birdhouse in your soul pushing daisies, so you’re substituting different words that mean the same or look different.

Use the LSI graph tool to generate LSI keywords that Google loves. LSI keywords are keywords related to the main keyword.

If I add build a birdhouse in LSI graph, I get different combinations of words, so build a birdhouse kit, birdhouse measurements, build it, decorate a bird house plans. It also gives me the search volume and cost per click.

Step three, view the search volume.

If you install keywords everywhere, it’ll give you the search volume and cost per click.

For example, I’ve got build a birdhouse 5,400 searches per month. Build a bird house in your soul, 70 searches per month. Build a bird house plans, 390 searches per month. This means if you target those keyword phrases and put them in your title, you can rank on the first page of YouTube.

LSI graph also shows you the trends and the search volume. So how to build a birdhouse YouTube, 110 searches per month.

Build a birdhouse kit, 700 searches per month. So you know these are keyword phrases that people are entering in YouTube search.

Step four, check the competition using TUBEBUDDY .

If I enter how to build a birdhouse in Keyword Explorer of TubeBuddy , it gives me similar suggestions to the YouTube suggestion tool. If I click explore, then it gives me an overall score, which is very poor. So I definitely wouldn’t want to go for this keyword phrase because it’s too competitive. Ideally, I want to go for a less competitive keyword phrase, so I can rank on the first page of YouTube. So even the unweighted score is only fair.

Let’s choose a less competitive title from these related titles that YouTube suggests. So I’m going to choose how to build a birdhouse step-by-step. Immediately it says it’s very good, so this is going to save me a lot of time. 76 out of a hundred this keyword isn’t too competitive. It has enough search volume to make it worth targeting. If you click on the weighted tab, it’ll be geared to my specific channel. So I click on weighted and it’s still very good. 79 out of a hundred. So this will be a great keyword phrase to go after it to get high search engine rankings.

I can also check the results by clicking results. I can immediately see that the top 10 videos don’t have the exact title phrase, how to build a birdhouse step-by-step.

So this would be a perfect phrase to go after to get high search engine rankings in YouTube. If you want to get even more suggestions, I can check out web searches from Google. Click web searches. I get how to build a birdhouse out of wood step by step. Step by step instructions on how to build a birdhouse. Immediately I get a higher score, 80 out of a hundred very good for the weighted score. U weighted score, v ery good. 77 out of a hundred.

If I check the results, I can see there’s no step by step instructions on how to build a birdhouse in the top 10 videos, so this would also be a perfect phrase to go after to rank in the search engines.

If you want to save a ton of time doing keyword research, I highly recommend upgrading to the paid option of TUBEBUDDY at:  tubebuddy.com/isitebuld

You get 20% off any paid option if you use the promo code HERMANSBUDDY at checkout. For example, if you upgrade to the legend option, you can split test titles as well as thumbnails. This means you can test different titles and thumbnails to see which ones give you the highest click through rate.

Step five, add exact keyword phrase to start of title. Start your title with a main keyword phrase. You’ve already researched. For example, how to build a birdhouse was the main keyword phrase we chose because it has a great search volume. Now that we satisfied the search engines by placing an exact keyword phrase at the beginning of our title, we want to add something to the end of the title to satisfy viewers.

Step six, add emotional trigger to end of title. Here are some examples of attention grabbing titles…. How to make the best Apple pie without oven.

5 easy ways to write a resume, 7 extreme fashion do’s and don’ts. The secret of creating your own fashion designs. The best ever fashion designs video, the top 10 fashion mistakes you need to avoid.

If I apply these title examples to how to build a birdhouse, I could write how to build a birdhouse step-by-step. How to build a birdhouse without experience. How to build a birdhouse do’s and don’ts, how to build a birdhouse secret formula. How to build a birdhouse mistakes you need to avoid. How to build a birdhouse, 5 easy ways.

Here are some video titles and thumb nails that have done really well. This is not yellow, 19 million views.

How to tie a tie quick and easy. 38 million views.

I put 100 million or BS and my friend’s backyard, 74 million views, and here’s one of mine, how to block content on YouTube, 2020….30,000 views after six months.

Step seven weave the title into your video description.

For example, in this video that I titled how to make your first video on YouTube 2020 so it doesn’t suck. The first line says, your first video on YouTube is probably going to suck because you don’t have any experience. The second line says in this video, I’m going to show you how to make your first video on YouTube in 2020 so it doesn’t suck.

Step eight, measure title, effectiveness. Audience Retention. Look at the first 10 or 15 seconds of your audience retention graph. If there’s a sudden dip in the first few seconds, that means your video didn’t meet the expectations of the title.

Traffic sources. Identify the keyword phrases that are driving traffic to your videos. Use these same keyword phrases in your title to boost the search results of your videos. If you have the TUBEBUDDY keyword tool,

you’ll be able to see the keyword phrases that your video is ranking for. As you can see, this video ranks for multiple keyword phrases, so you’d create a series of videos using different titles.

I’ve already got confirmation that these keyword optimized titles would rank on the first page of YouTube search. You can then use those keyword phrases in your titles for future videos. You can also create a series of videos on a similar topic, but with different titles and put them in a playlist.

Click through rate. If you get a high click through rate, that means your title and your thumbnail are working well together.

Here are 7 common video title mistakes.

Number one, no SEO benefit. Your title must contain a keyword phrase, otherwise it won’t rank in the search engines.

Number two, no reader benefit. Avoid writing boring titles that don’t compel the viewer to click on the video.

Number three, lack of curiosity. When writing a title, keep in mind the searchers intent. What kind of questions are they asking and what kind of information are they going to receive from you Video?

Number four, lack of specificity If you add a number like top 10 tips or 3 easy ways that makes your title more specific.

Number five, lack of simplicity. Short titles, make them easy to read and easy to scan. Avoid using words in your title that are difficult to understand.

Number six, no sense of urgency. For example, if you write a title like how to build a birdhouse within 24 hours, that tells the viewer it’s not going to take a long time.

Number seven, title doesn’t compliment your thumbnail. Your thumbnail and title should work together to win the click. If nobody clicks on your thumbnail, they’re not going to watch a video that you spent hours creating.

Now you know the SECRET FORMULA for writing compelling video titles for your YouTube Videos.

How To Add Videos To A Queue
Let’s go back to the YouTube homepage. Here’s another exercise video. I can save it to Watch later playlist or I can click Add to queue. If you click Add to queue and it plays in a mini-player at the bottom right of the page. When I click on the X, that says, “The queue will be cleared. Are you sure you want to close the player?” Click Close player.

You can do this for any video you’re watching or browsing on YouTube.

Keep in mind that your queue won’t save after you’ve closed your browser. If you want to continue watching later, just save your video to your Watch later playlist.

Here’s another video that I want to add to my private playlist called Fitness. Just click on the three dots, click Save to playlist, select Fitness, close the window. Now if I click on Fitness, I now have two videos that are saved to my private playlist called Fitness.

If I click on these three dots, I can collaborate so collaborators can add videos to this playlist, I can change the playlist settings and allow embedding, add new videos to the top of the playlist.

You can also click Advanced settings and click Add videos.
– Go to video search.
– Enter URL of a video I want to save in this playlist or I can select my own YouTube videos.
– If I search for “knee pain,” click Search. I can select from any of these videos. For example I choose..Two gentle stretches to reduce knee pain. I just select the video, click Add video.

How do you delete your saved playlist?
– Click on the three dots,
– Click Delete playlist.
“Are you sure you want to delete Fitness from my saved playlist?” Deleting playlist is a permanent action and cannot be undone,
– Click Delete.

Now you know how to save any video to a watch later playlist, add it to a queue or create a private playlist.
