If you are looking for a way to bring more free traffic to your website you are on the right place. Youtube is the second biggest site on the internet and the traffic you can get from youtube videos is targeted, high converting and way less competitive than the getting traffic trough with the usual methods such as writing articles, blog and forum posting, answering questions on yahoo answeres and etc.
There are two important questions that I will try to answer in this post:
- What should I do if I want to increase YouTube views YouTube views?
- What to do after I increase my YouTube views?
So, lets go straight on the point.
There are 3 basic things that you need to take care of :
- Getting momentum(the first 5000 views)
- Conversion from youtube views to website traffic
Before you even start promoting you want to make sure that the video has value. If your video is totally worthless then no mater what you do you will never get the results you are looking for. So please don’t spend your time and effort into promoting a video that sucks. That’s not good for any of us.
And before I start going deeper into the topic I want to make sure you know one fundamental thing about the whole youtube ranking system :
How does youtube rank your videos?
- Meta Tags
- Number of views
- Number of ratings
- Number of positive comments
- Age of the video
Having success in this categories will automatically increase your youtube views.
Note : If you once increase your YouTube views you will get even more youtube views and that will get you even more youtube views. – This is the positive loop for increasing youtube views.
Now after you made sure that your video does not suck, you can start phase two.
That is video promotion
As a matter of fact there is one thing that you can control completely, the meta tags. And properly manipulating them is the easiest free way to get more YouTube views.
This is quite simple, but only controlling the meta tags won’t make you successful really fast, the initial 10-20 comments and 5000 views will be a hardship.
So this means that if you want to catalyze your video success and Increase youtube views faster then you will have to get more:
- Positive Comments
How do you do this?
You basically start promoting your video in order to get more YouTube views, comments and ratings. There are many ways of doing this.
You get creative, you can post on blogs, forums, social bookmarking. Post the video on your blog. Ask for friends to leave comments and ratings. There is also a service that can get you more YouTube views automatically with a click of a button.

Anyway that is “all for nothing” if you don’t know how to convert your YouTube views into website traffic.
So how do you do it, how do you convert the traffic?
There are 2 main things to this :
- Video editing
- Description editing
-For video editing you can use Windows Movie Maker (its free) or camtasia/vegas pro/adobe premier (most advanced).
Edit the video’s beginning and end, put a watermark inside, in the end of the video add a message:
“For more information check the video description.”
Next add a link pointing back to your website in the video description, but make sure that it is in the first line of the description, so people can see the hyperlink without having to click the “show more” button. Also, you need to put the link in this format :
http://yourwerbsite.com – if you forget the http://, the link wont be clickable and you will loose a big portion of the viewers.
The next stage is to convert that website traffic into money. You do this by optimizing your website but thats a whole deferent topic.
So a quick recap,
To get more YouTube views you need to :
- Make sure you have quality video to promote
- Work on creating initial momentum
- Video and description editing
