Step #3: Upload Your Video With YouTube SEO in Mind

Here’s how to extract the most SEO value from your video.

Video Filename

When you’re done with the video make sure that you use the keyword in the video’s filename.

For example, if you wanted to rank for the keyword “weight loss tips”, you’d want to name your video weight_loss_tips_video.mp4.

This may not be a ranking factor. But it doesn’t hurt 🙂

Video Title

The title of your video should be at least 5-words long. That way, you can include your full keyword without keyword-stuffing.

For example, my Advanced Video SEO video’s title is 5 words…only 2 of which are my target keyword:

Power Tip: Like with a blog post, I’ve found that you get a slight video SEO boost by putting your keyword at the beginning of the title.

So if you were trying to rank for “surfing tutorial” you’d want a title like: “Surfing Tutorial: Learn How to Ride a Wave Today”.


Your videos description is VERY important.

Because Google and YouTube can’t “listen” to videos, they rely on your text description to determine your video’s content.

Here are the basic guidelines for the description:

Put your link at the very top of the video (this maximizes CTR to your site)
Include your keyword in the first 25 words
Make the description at least 250-words
Include your keyword 3-4 times

This SEO-optimized description helps tell Google and YouTube what your video is about without being spammy.
