Your article hits all the great points. Today, it seems, people try to do the same as everyone else. The goal should always be to be unique and provide new fresh information. Gaining an online presence, attracting more twitter followers, and facebook fans, is about providing the reader with the “wow” moment.
I study Psychology and Business. You really have to push the emotional buttons of the viewer. This is one of the reason why the Kony Video was such a blast. Start with strong keywords you have to use strong ones which call up emotions.
I agree with George above. The process of selecting keywords for Title of a Video should be different compared to what we use for content. Keywords in the Meta Tags is fine but if we are submitting the videos on Youtube and other media sharing sites then they will use the “Title of the Video” as the Title tag… And that’s where creativity comes into play. The title needs to be catchy, attractive plus seo-friendly as well.
Well yes, titles and description is really important for search engine traffic and Google keywords tool is really a great tool to do keywords research and agreed making short and informative videos will get more views, as people are more interested in short length video, rather than long videos. Thanks for this wonderful post 🙂
Really Nice information But Can you say me how can i make Unique Video coz I have a movie blog i wanna make self movie trailer of my blog if have some suggestion plz give me i will thankful to you 🙂
Instead of using google keyword tools I prefer using youtube keyword tools. It tells me if the keywords i am looking for have a demand visually or not. Youtube is the world’s second largest search engine and its easier to rank on youtube than google.
