A problem which most content creators encounter, and a tough challenge all of us have is coming up with that quirky yet cool video idea which will hopefully rake in the views. But others find it much harder, and more frustrating, to invent a catchy video title, which they are happy with creatively, and one which helps you appear in any search results.

There is a clever trick to this which is more obvious than may first appear! Let us share this little secret trick with you.

A large proportion of your video views will actually stem from user search. Especially if your subscriber count isn’t in the hundreds of thousands, you will get more views from searches than your subscribers.

The trick is; to tailor your YouTube titles to what the viewers are currently searching for. This will indicate the most popular searches for your content.

For instance, if your video is on a Headset unboxing, then type this into the YouTube search bar and study the results. As you can see in the image, “test”, “review”, and “microphone” are shown as some of the more popular results. To craft a title, simply take these key words to form something similar to “Tutrtle Beach X12 review an unboxing, including microphone test!”.

This method will make sure you hit those key searches and incease the maximum amount of views you will receive.

This next trick isn’t as vital as a good title which hits all of the buzzwords, but should help gather some attention from the user searches!

This is video tags. Video tags are obviously not as vital as the title, but never forget to add them to a video. important as the title. Having a good combination of tags will lead to becoming easily searchable in user searches. A good combination of tags which follows our example would be;

X12 Test, X12 review, Turtle Beach, Headset, X12 Unboxing, Headset unboxing, Turtle Beach unboxing.

Make sure not to overflow your tag box with a thousand tags however. YouTube considered a long list of tags to be spam, and this goes againt YouTube terms of use and service. This can lead to a strike against your own account. Also make sure to keep tags out of the description box! This will only put off potential subscribers and will also lead to a YouTube strike.

Good luck in titling your future videos, and we hope to see your channel flourish and grow!
