Within this course, learn how to find the best keywords. Learn how to use those keywords, effectively learn everything about the use of keywords within your marketing strategy. We're going to talk about primary keywords and what they are and the benefits of long tail keywords. We will be discussing the best tools to find keywords. We have a full list of free resources at the end of this course that you can use. Keywords are the number one thing that marketers often struggle with. Having a good keywords strategy could bring out results within content. Search YouTube and keywords is essential in gaining traffic and improving your ranking. Key words are important in all stages of video ranking, including your video content, creation, metadata and almost every single aspect of your video. YouTube is the second largest search engine. Next to Google, you have to you have to consider keywords in order to rank. If you want to be found within search, think keywords. You need to optimize those keywords to effectively show up within search results. Keywords are the foundation for 2. 3 What are Keywords: this video will be talking about what keywords are. So keyword. Research is one of the most valuable and high rate of return activities in YouTube marketing. That's what makes keywords so very important. And key words essentially are just the words and phrases that Internet users type in into search engines like Google to find websites that match what they're looking for. So keywords are important because search results matter. You will find that a large percentage of your traffic comes from search, and this is why it's important to get the right keywords in order to optimize that search. Traffic that's coming in search is the number one driver of traffic to your videos. Over 90% of YouTube users use search. Billions of searches are done each month on YouTube. Ranking in searches is huge. There's a huge difference in ranking between those results that come up on the first page, and those were come up afterwards. Quite literally. If you come up on the second or third page, it doesn't even matter if you come up on the 2nd 3rd 4th 10th or 100 page. The first page results are what matter there are some key words that get hundreds of thousands of searches done daily, and depending on what the word is, it could be either highly competitive or not so competitive at all. Why keyword research is so essential in getting those right keywords placed within your videos in order to rank higher and better within search results. These are the terms that users are using to get and find content online. And these are the terms that they're going to find your content online by using so key Words are important. And we're gonna take you through all the strategies, techniques and ways to get keywords, to research keywords and to find the absolute best keywords for your videos in order to fully optimize thumb. Having the right keywords is a difference in traffic for your videos, so spending time toe optimize them properly. To research them properly is well worth the effort 3. 4 How to use Keywords: after understanding what keywords are and the importance of keywords. The next step is to figure out how to use your keywords effectively so you can use your keywords within your video script in order to optimize for those terms. And, yes, Google does do or YouTube does do ah, voice to text feature within their videos, and they are able to to detect your keywords within your videos. So that's why video scripting and using your keywords within video scripting as important. Also, within video optimization in the metadata, typing in the right keywords with entitles, descriptions and tags also affect your rankings and how your video was found within search . We're gonna also look at trending keywords and trending topics. So, using keywords and trending topics, you confined additional videos that you need to create. So if you were creating video, it's about keywords. Just by going in tow, AdWords keyword planner tool and typing in keywords. To get ideas, you can see the number of searches being done. So this is on Google itself, which is slightly it is relevant as well to YouTube because they do share some of the same data and you got to remember us well, that your YouTube videos air going to be showing up within Google. A swell so search is done within Google are affecting how many times your video does get viewed. If it does rank for those keywords, so one typing in keywords, you can look at this and say You can make videos about keyword generators. You can make keywords about odd words, videos about AdWords videos, but search optimization and you can get a whole bunch of tips here about the different types of videos that you can create just in regards to the using the one keyword keywords more on this leader in an upcoming video as well. So what does help you source out new ideas when it comes to using keywords when it comes to keywords, Relevance is important relevance to the video to the content and in order to get the best results for search the keywords and keyword phrases half to be relevant to the content of the video. This is important because relevance of the keywords is essential in producing proper keyword strategies. 4. 5 What is the differenece between LongTail Keywords and regular keywords: So when you're doing keyword research, you've probably heard of long tail keywords, primary keyword, secondary keywords and also different variations of those terms. So, essentially, what long tail keywords are there longer and more specific keyword phrases that users and visitors use and are more and are less likely to type in but more likely to be relevant to the content that you have so generally there keyword combination of 3 to 6 words or mawr and are specific and relevant to the video content. When I type in cooking within the keyword planner, I can see here that I do have quite a few primary keywords. So primary key words are words where there's just the one main word. So cooking would be a primary key word as well as sometimes cooking as and if it is considered within one word that can also still be primary. So none of these are really primary. If you go into ah, 2 to 3 words generally, their secondary eso cooking tips and all of these would be secondary. If you're typing in something like real estate, that's gonna be two words. But that's also going to be a primary term eso. That's the difference between the primary and secondary. So sometimes primary is one or two words. Sometimes they're just a single word, so sometimes combo. Sometimes it's a single, and this is also gonna vary about the amount of search, volume and competition. Eso if a particular phrase like real estate is going to get a whole bunch of searches for those particular primary keywords. So real estate eyes considered one primary key word and you can see the different volumes of searches. So this is, Ah, searches within Google, but it is relevant to YouTube as well. Eso When you look down here, most of these are secondary type keywords, and generally those air 2 to 3 word phrases. And then the longer tail are ones that are four plus word phrases, and they're usually a lot more specific, so they'll throw in a specific location. Colorado Springs Real Estate And it would actually be a little bit more specific like this . So you go Colorado Springs real estate homes or something else to add Ah, third type of descriptor to that keyword phrase. So as you can see here, this is just to keyword descriptors. That's the location. And that's the key word. Eso. Even though it is four words, it's still considered a secondary type keyword. Here's some Google graphics about long tail keyword charts, and this is why they're called long tail. Because, as you can see here, the number of search activity for that particular search word. The short of the the phrases primary words are gonna have a whole bunch of search activity for those words because they're gonna be a lot more commonplace. They're going to be used in combination and different types of combinations. She go down the tail, you see the secondary type words. So these air gonna have a little bit less search activity cause they're gonna be getting a little bit more specific. But they're still gonna have more search activity than the long tail keywords. So this is the dragon's tail. The long tail keyword where it just drops off continues to flow down the number of searches . So you might be getting a lot less searches, but they're going to be a lot more specific searches and these air definitely better to be looking at when you're searching for YouTube because this will. This is something you could base entire video off of something that's really specific, but it's still getting traffic and has a whole lot less competition than the primary keywords do in the upper set section here. So when you go down the tail, it's less competitive. When you go up, it's more competitive. And competitive is what you're looking at in considering when you're trying to rank within search engines because they only do have those top slots, those top 10 slots within search. And if there's a whole bunch of competition for those top slots than it's a lot harder to get your videos ranked within those sluts, you can see here within the keyword planner that even though some of them do have more monthly searches, you can see the competition rating that's being placed on them. So high is something that you've got to really consider whether you want to place keywords and compete against higher competition word and you can see here when I go back to YouTube and type in real estate that I've got the original keyword is there. So if I was actually trying to rank for a video that was real estate investing in Canada. I would have a lot harder time getting my video noticed and a lot less chance of somebody watching through if they're looking for real estate photography and my video comes up and it's based on investing in Canada, so you can see that as well. When you do do a search within YouTube and you can see that if I had created a video that was ranking for investment in Canada, I wouldn't be able to show up as high in the search rankings because there's a whole bunch of competition for real estate was to type in real estate investing in Canada, and this is what my video was about. You can see here that you have more of a chance of getting into the higher rankings of the search results, and this is definitely where you want to be when you are trying to rank and optimize your videos and where they're going to show up 5. 6 Not just any keywords picking the right keywords: so initially, when you do do a search for a keyword phrase and you come up with a whole bunch of results , you will be tempted to kind of look at this and say, Wow, the monthly searches air very high in this, and this is the one I'm gonna try to rank for. And that's a mistake, because you should go down and you should look at different ones that might have, ah, lower monthly search rate but have lower competition so you could go for something like Easy and that has less competition. And if you do have these this keyword phrase that you're optimizing for, you have more of a chance of showing up higher with in search rankings and in fact, actually gaining even more traffic, even though that the search volume is less, you'd be able to gain more traffic from just the amount of targeting of those keywords. So the whole idea is when you're looking for keywords to think about what's actually going to get you that traffic. So when you go for the primary ones, you might not necessarily get the traffic cause you're not gonna show up on the search rankings or not easily gonna show up on search rankings, and you won't be able to get that traffic anyway, So the amount of searches that are being done for that term actually become a relevant. But when you there's lower competition for that term, getting a piece of the 10,000 or so searches for a lower talk term, as opposed to the 100,000 for a higher competition term is going to be a lot easier to rank , and you actually going to find you're getting a lot more traffic out of it. So another thing to remember us well is to make sure that your YouTube video is buying with the content that you're you're trying to rank for. So you've got to make sure that you are actually ranking with what you're doing on YouTube . Not advisable to try to trick YouTube because it's advanced enough to know that your video content isn't just about the words that you're placing in here. There's additional and markers that they use to rank the videos in addition to the wording that you're putting in. So you must make your video about that particular content that you're trying to rank for If you're not ranking for that content than you also risk having your audience and viewers coming in. And if your key words don't match up with what your video content is, there's a higher chance that they're actually going to click off of your video and go and watch something else. And this will in fact hurt your watch time and hurt your rankings in the long run. So keywords stick to what's within the video and stick toe with what content you are producing to make sure that everything is in line with the key words that you're using in your strategy. 6. 7 Value of Youtube Keywords: one other thing to consider when you're determining your keywords strategy and determining what types of videos to make and what content to put in your videos is if you have your videos monetized and you do want to get a decent return, you might want to look at the suggested bid as well within the keyword planner, the AdWords keyword planner, because this will give you a strong indication of the value of the keyword eso. If you're going to create a video, you can see that creating Star Wars video games will probably be a lot more lucrative than creating Marvel video games just because you're gonna be getting quite a bit more money because users are bidding up more money for those keywords. Ah, and that, in turn, will give you more money when you do monetize your videos. So this is just a small footnote. You shouldn't really base your entire video games, your tire video strategy on it. You should also look at content and producing quality content for your audience in order to grow your channel in the long term. Ah, but this is something to keep in mind if possible. Toe. Look at that, and if you are trying to make a decision, that can also help you determine what is the best course of content to create. 7. 8 Keywords Brainstorming: when you're trying to come up with concepts for your YouTube videos, a good idea to start in a good place to start is doing some brainstorming. So coming up with some ideas and then connecting those ideas to additional topics and similar type words, Always good practice to create a starter list of words that are you can commonly used to describe your video. So any words that are really relevant to your video and that match common habits that users might place within search for that video. Often times what you can do is you can actually connect ideas that you have. So let's say you have one word. You can connect it to another word to grow your base of different basic ideas that you have for your keyword. Brainstorming. Also, some questions that you could ask yourself, and these questions would definitely help you come up with your base of keywords. So just ask yourself when you're thinking of your video. What would you take to find that video s so you can also look at additional videos and think of what you're typing to find those videos on? That's a good way to kind of start out and create those brainstorming base keyword. It's always remember it's always important to remember to write all of this stuff down. Another question that you can ask yourself is what words would summarize your video. So not only, ah, what you'd be finding your video. So if you had to say a sentence or a bunch a set of words that I would summarize the content of your video, what would they be? And then, once you've got ah, few words down already, you can think of what words are similar so you can go to something. The sources and just look at additional words that match with wouldn't with the wording that you already do have. And if you were to be asked, what would you create? What's one sentence that would best describe your video? That could be a more longer term keyword phrase that you could use within your brain storming, and this is probably it. So maybe if you could come up with 5 to 10 base words and maybe one phrase to kind of get started with the brainstorming, this will give you a good enough base to use all the different tools and resources were going over with later and order to create your awesome keyword lists that I'm gonna be able to rank your video is even higher. 8. 9 Audience Online Personas: So after doing some brainstorming, if you're still having trouble coming up with some proper keywords for your upcoming videos , you can think of your audience. So if you've already created some videos and you do understand who you're targeting and who your audience is, you can come up with some keywords in that way as well. Eso understanding your audience helps you create keywords. I think of the gender, the age if they have any common hobbies or interests, goals that they may want to achieve, and then you can also think about where they might hang out online and what their overall general interests are. And by doing this, you're able to create kind of a persona of the different types of viewers that might be coming in to your video, and you could cater it a little bit better to the wards. Then, as well as you confined keyword ideas. You know your audience. You can search for forums and related websites that might attract them and then think about what wording those sites are using to target that audience as well. And there's another great source for keywords and getting started with keywords. We've got also a number of tools that will help you determine that eso once you do have the website, there's a whole bunch of free tools online where you could type in the website You Earl, and you could get a whole bunch of keyword lists that way. It's also important to remember while you're doing this research on your audience, to keep track of all those different websites that you're checking out that are related to your audience because they could come in useful down the line. When you are doing some more marketing towards that audience, there's a website called board reader dot com. That's a fairly useful tool in order to find out a little bit more about different communities and then finding sites that are related to those communities. When you type in a phrase or a keyword, ah, you're able to see a whole bunch of more ideas and websites that are based around those ideas and from those websites you can check out. You can also see different trends for that particular keyword eso by day, week and month as well as you can see the real rate related sites to that word, and then you could go to any one of these sites and check out what keywords they have available and they're using to target that audience. So that's a great way to kind of grow your keyword list by determining who your audience is , as well as targeting that audience a little bit better with their interests and hobbies. Eso in thinking keywords think about interests and hobbies as well in order to track those those viewers and not audience to your video. 9. 10 Check your Analytics for ideas: So you can also use your YouTube analytics to get additional keywords for the key word batter Gee of new and up and coming videos s so you can take a look at the videos that you have go under analytics, overview traffic sources. Now, I'm not gonna have a lot of data in this particular YouTube channel. I just set this one up to create some videos on eso. But either way, it's the same idea where you could go down to analytics traffic sources and you could go to YouTube search. And from the YouTube search, this is going to give you a listing, a key words that are being used to find your video or your videos. And from here, you could break it down to content per video. So if you want to look at one particular video and the key words that are being used or your overall channel the key words that are being used s so that would be removing out that video and then you get the full channel keywords that are being used to find your current videos, and this sometimes gives you a good idea of the different keywords and what audiences air actually searching for, and this also helps you build mawr towards your channel. Build a more targeted channel overall, gives you keyword ideas by looking at your Channel analytics, and it gives you ideas of what are the trends and what your audience is actually searching for and what they're reaching your channel for. And the more you optimize towards thes keywords, the better your channel gets optimized for overall authority on those topics. Eso The more videos you create towards a particular topic, the more of an authority your channel does become, and the more chance you do have of ranking better. So that's how you use the YouTube analytics. Ah, and traffic sources in Under traffic sources, you just check off the YouTube search. And under YouTube search, you'll get a listing of all your different keywords that users are using to find your channel and your videos on your channel. 10. 11 Google YouTube Insta Search: this video will be talking about that YouTube instant search, the auto complete eso. If you've done some searching on YouTube, you notice that when you start typing, you get a whole bunch of terms here. I believe you get 10 different suggested terms auto complete terms that you can simply click and do the search on, or you could continue to type and be a little bit more specific with your keywords. So if you use that original keyword base of key words that you do have that you created earlier in this course, you can easily type them in within. Search here and you can see that I'm getting a whole bunch of suggestions here for top 10. So if I was doing top 10 videos on YouTube, I could do top. Ted means top 10 Minecraft songs. Top 10 Media Top 10 movies Top 10 Music Top 10 Most Hated Songs. Eso this one here. This is a really good ah, long tail keywords that you can totally base a video upon. A swell as a few of these other ones here, and all of these could be great ideas for creating new videos as well as you do see that they are being searched for cause YouTube is suggesting them as search terms. Eso these. This is a great way to start to get going on your keyword research. And if you take that freeze and you search it and then you start typing again, you're going to get additional keywords suggestions within their instant eso you could go down and you could scroll down. You could suggest you could select any one of these and get even Mawr suggested keywords and get even more targeted. Four key words that are up and coming. Eso once again make sure that you do have something handy, like note pad or somewhere where you could easily copy and paste and build up the's great keyword lists that you can lose later on within your video production. It's also a good way to create ah, bunch of strategy and planning ahead to create videos. Eso If I was creating videos, I could create several videos out of just this one set of key words that I've been looking at. I can also take something like hated songs, and I could go and get additional keywords from that as well So it's a whole bunch of options here, just within the YouTube search itself. And the good thing about all of these terms, these are actual terms that users are using to search out content on YouTube s. Oh, this is a really good way to get some really good terms quickly. Ah, and easily through YouTube search. 11. 12 Power of YouTube Search: one additional quick note about using the YouTube auto complete for keyword research is that you're also able to do a little bit of research about how those particular terms show up within search, and you're able to see all the different videos that are showing up under that keyword phrase, and you can take quickly. Look at and see that the Durie, how long that they've been on YouTube and you can see the number of use that they've got. Eso Some of these obviously are gonna be very well known channels. But then there's also some down here that might not be as well known. And if you hover over, you can see a little bit more about the channel information s Oh, this one here has only 56 subscribers. It's got 53 videos, but it is six years ago, so it's got 26,000 views. Ah, you can go down here is well and you can see this one's 10 months ago. It's only got 480 subscribers, and it's got 15,000 views. So top 10 most hated songs eso some of these are definitely attainable rankings for YouTube . You can see also here. There's additional ones been on here for a year. They have 185 subscribers, 506 videos, and they've got 81,000 views. Eso sometimes aiming for a midlevel. Being happy with a mid level range of views is a good way to kind of start out. Some videos will go viral. Some won't. Ah, but aiming for a mid level range of attainable target just by optimizing is a really good way to go when you are starting to create strategy for videos that you're gonna be creating an up and coming so overall just within YouTube search, it's a really good way to do that. Keyword research that's essential for your YouTube marketing strategy. You can see how videos air performing for that keyword freeze, and you can tell the interest in those particular keyword phrases from users that are watching videos that are optimized for those keywords 12. 13 Video Ideas with Google Search Related videos: So, in addition to using YouTube, search to get keyword suggestions and create keyword lists and to do some keyword research . Ah, you can also use Google. So don't ever forget about Google because it is the number one search engine, and then YouTube is number two, and you could see here by typing top 10 YouTubers. You can see the benefits of being on Google and optimizing for Google a swell because you can see that they do show YouTube videos. And they do put some priority on these YouTube videos, boosting them up with in search rankings over websites and other pages. Eso YouTube does perform better in S CEO and within search rankings than a lot of websites that probably have been around for a while and have a whole bunch of content on them. So Google, just like YouTube, it provides you that critical keyword list when you are typing and within search, and you can get them within the drop down and create your lists from there as well. In addition to being able to create your keyword lists here, you're also able to go down to the bottom of your search, and it's got a whole bunch of related terms to your search term. Eso these air really good long tail keywords as well as really great ideas for new videos that you can create. So every time you enter in a search, it has related search. And, as you can see here, if I was doing a top 10 video for YouTubers, I can see. Here's one idea. Here's another one with the most subscribers. Here's one with the most income most subscribers again and Top 10 Utah YouTubers of all time. Eso right here there's at least three, if not four different videos that I could be creating based around that one particular keyword. And then, as you expand your keyword lists, you can keep entering additional keywords and getting a whole bunch of new ideas for videos . Eso very effective and very great way to create new ideas as well as find popular terms that are being searched within Google and YouTube. 13. 14 Six Amazing Resources that provide keyword strategy ideas: So when you're doing your keyword research eso you've done some keyword research on YouTube and you've done some keyword research on Google, and you find that they do have that drop down auto complete suggestion tool. So it's important to remember that they're not the only ones that do this. There's a whole bunch of sites with a whole bunch of massive databases with some great tools for relating content and being able to suggest an auto complete content that the user might be searching for eso going Tobing being does the same thing on as you can see here. The results are going to be different than what's coming up on YouTube and what's coming up on Google The same thing for Wikipedia. They also do that drop down list S so this is another great resource for coming up with top related search terms and a whole bunch of just different terms to create videos around eso . Here's a whole bunch of other ones. Top 10 lists Amazon as well does the same thing. So if you start typing in Amazon, you can see what the popular products are. Eso if you're thinking about products you want talk about products within your videos. There's a whole bunch of options here is, well, lot that are best sellers on Amazon eyes. There's another way to get some great intel and research on your keyword phrases. Psychos. Amazon is the largest retailer most amount of different types of products, and their data is very insightful into what users air buying and what's popular. There's also Yahoo. So does the same thing and again, slightly different list of top 10 items. Eso these air just different items that are being talked to boat and searched within their search engine. And then there's, of course, eBay S O. They do the same thing. So these are popular terms that are being entered in within eBay, and they do drop those down for you as well.
