YouTube Keyword Tool Tutorial How To Find Profitable Keywords In 4 Easy Steps

  • Do you want to create videos that people want to watch?
  • Do you want to find new topics for your content?
  • Do you want to discover keywords that contain lots of YouTube videos?
  • Do you want to brainstorm new keywords to add to existing content?

The YouTube Keyword Tool can be a powerful aid when used correctly. It shows you how popular a specific keyword is and finds related keywords you can use in your video content.

Here are the 4 steps for finding profitable
keywords using the YouTube Keyword Tool:

Step 1.
Go to the YouTube keyword tool

  • Visit the YouTube Keyword tool in Google and go to the first suggestion and enter your base keyword here which in this case is going to be “Yoga”.
  • Click “keyword ideas” and you will see that Yoga has 1,263,800 searches every month.
  • Profitable keywords include “yoga pants”, “yoga music”, “yoga workout” which has 64,000 searches per month.

Step 2.
Look at exact match

What we just looked at before was “broad” match which includes keyword phrases in the sentence but if we look for “exact” then these are the exact phrases that people are searching for.

So “yoga” has 136,900, “yoga for beginners” has 65,200, “yoga pants” has 27,600 and “yoga music” has 19,700 searches per month. So you could create a video for each of those keyword phrases.

Searches that say “not enough data” means that people are still using those phrases to find related videos. Include them in your titles, descriptions, tags and blog content.

Step 3.
Check how many videos occur on YouTube for a specific keyword phrase

If you enter “yoga pants” into YouTube you’ll see the first video has 2,544,620 views, the next one has 207,000. If you look at “yoga workout” the first video has over 5 million views, the next one has 349,000 views.

This means those keyword phrases are in demand. To capitalize on the volume of views you can receive create videos that include those phrases.

For Example
yoga workout routine
pilates yoga workout
yoga poses workout
yoga ball workout
beginner yoga workout

Step 4.
Check how old the videos are

This first video for “yoga workout” was done over a year ago. The second video was done 7 months ago. So now you have a chance to swoop in and take over those rankings because Google loves fresh content.

Remember that the majority of users are not going to YouTube to purchase something. They are searching for information, help, and entertainment. Catering to these needs will help your video content succeed.

SEO Copywriting – How Google’s Algorithim Updates Changed SEO Copywriting Forever

copywriting course
Ever since I’ve been online (as far back as 1997) I was taught to insert keywords whereever possible in your content. This included placing keyword phrases one or more times in titles, subtitles, file names, tags, links, etc. This was the common way of thinking for a decade or longer. As a result your content received high rankings rather quickly.

  • Do you want to find profitable keywords from multiple search engines?
  • Are you making the mistake of using the Google Keyword Planner Tool?
  • How accurate is the Wordtracker Free Keywords Tool?

Most online marketers (including myself) used the Google AdWords Keyword Tool for many years which has been replaced by the Keyword Planner Tool. The big problem with using this tool is that it’s other words it doesn’t provide an accurate analysis of keywords you can use to attract traffic to your website.

Think of this scenario…you spend an hour or two researching potential keywords using Google’s keyword planner tool. After selecting several keywords to target you spend hours writing content based on the keywords you selected. You then spend more hours promoting the content by sharing it on social media sites and other web properties to build backlinks. You check your rankings every few days to see if your content ranks high enough on the search engines so you’ll receive a continuous stream of traffic. After waiting several weeks or months you notice your content still hasn’t attained high rankings so you conclude this strategy is a waste of your precious time.

Why you shouldn’t use Google’s Keyword Planner Tool

Search Engine Optimization (SEO): Old vs New

se old vs new

You may be wondering if SEO is still worth doing these days since there have been many changes in the last couple of years. Your websites may have lost their rankings due to the Panda and Penguin algorithm updates resulting in lost sales. SEO strategies that worked well for you in the past may no longer generate effective results.

For example I submitted content to article directories for many years to share with a larger audience and to build back links to my websites. This often resulted in gaining high rankings in the search engines and generating lots of free traffic. After the Panda and Penguin updates my traffic dropped by 50%. This can primarily be attributed to getting too many back links from article directories using the same anchor text.

Recently one of the most popular article directories on the net… Ideamarketers, closed down because the owner no longer believed this business model was effective strategy for generating income.

So what are the new strategies for effective SEO?

Zen Cart SEO | Optimize Meta Tags

B. How to Optimize the Meta tags of Your Category and Products Pages

ZenCart pulls the database information automatically for each category and product page and places it in the meta tags. The information includes product name, title, model, price, title/tagline. This is fine if you don’t know much about the benefits of optimizing your web site however if you want to make your pages more search engine friendly, don’t just use the default settings.

Zen Cart enables you to define custom keywords for every category and product page.

1. Create optimized text for your product descriptions

If my page is about Remington Stainless Steel Sinks then I need to include this keyword phrase in the content on the page as well as in the meta tags. The content should contain at least a a paragraph or 2 about the product as search engines love well written descriptive content.

2. Customize the Categories Meta Tags

Go to the Categories section of your admin panel. You will see a round Meta Tags icon on the far right under “action”. If the icon is black and white, custom keywords have not been defined. Click on the icon and a page will open allowing you to enter custom Meta Title, Keywords, and Description tags.

* Include your main keyword or keyword phrase at the beginning of your title meta tag, then add your business name at the end.

* Create an attractive description for your category that will entice visitors to look deeper into your site.

* Add approximately 10 of your main keywords to the keywords meta tag.

* Click save

Your category page is now optimized for the search engines.

3. Customize the Products Meta Tags

* The top of each product page displays a box titled: “Mark What the Product’s Meta Tag Title Should Include:”

* Under this line are check boxes for product name, title, model, price, title/tagline. Uncheck price, title/tagline then enter your description and keywords in the boxes below. Zencart will automatically pull the product name, title and model from the database. (You can add your own tags if you don’t want to use these).

* Click preview to preview the changes.

* Click update to make the changes permanent.

Repeat the above procedure for each of your product pages. Make sure you include the name and model number for each product. If people are searching for that specific model, chances are your page will appear at the top of the search engines because you are the only one that optimized a page specifically for that model.

Customizing your meta tags for every page, will boost your rankings and increase your traffic and sales.

SEO – Don’t Rewrite Dynamic URLs To Static URLs

For several years I’ve always changed dynamic urls to static urls because search engines did not index those types of pages. This meant less visitors and sales because search engines would only index the home page.

This has all changed now according to Google’s updated WebMaster Guidelines:

Here’s a quote from the Official Google Webmaster Central Blog

“We can crawl dynamic URLs and interpret the different parameters. We might have problems crawling and ranking your dynamic URLs if you try to make your urls look static and in the process hide parameters which offer the Googlebot valuable information. One recommendation is to avoid reformatting a dynamic URL to make it look static. It’s always advisable to use static content with static URLs as much as possible, but in cases where you decide to use dynamic content, you should give us the possibility to analyze your URL structure and not remove information by hiding parameters and making them look static.”

What does this mean for the SEO of your web sites?

1. Don’t rewrite dynamic urls to static urls

If you have an online store or a web site that uses dynamic urls don’t convert then to static urls because your pages will now get crawled. This will save you a lot of time creating a .htaccess file and testing all your pages.

2. Leave your old sites alone

If yoo have an old site with old rewrites in place, leave them as they are because the pages have already been indexed by Google and have gained link popularity (other web sites have linked to those pages). If you want to change them back to dynamic urls, use a 301 redirect This will transfer the old URLS to the new URLS and preserve link popularity and rankings.
