  • Make use of paid tools with free versions such as Moz keyword tool for the keyword planner.

  • Get a conclusion that if the video appears on the first page in Google, then it is the matchable keyword; otherwise, it is a non-ideal keyword.

For every video, you must use the primary keyword, which is a phrase of three to six words. And also, you need secondary keywords or supporting keywords. It is the Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI) keywords. By adding broad secondary keywords, YouTube can understand your video better and rank your video at the top when the exact search keyword.


The description for a YouTube video should be a couple of paragraphs with short content. It should be around 160 characters. 

Use all the primary keywords in your description and remember to put at least one keyword within 50 characters of the title. Never go forward to sell any products through the description. It makes a lousy SEO, and it lowers your video rank as well. 


Create the most attractive titles to cover the significant audience to your post. It should be concise and handy, and also it should be below 50 characters. Don't forget to add the primary keyword in the title. 

Add the year at the end of the title; it helps your video to get more views and engagements. For example, the keyword for your content is "Best Dogs For The Apartments."

     Title: Best Dogs For The Apartments: Interesting Facts About Dogs in Apartment (2020)

     Title: Best Dogs For The Apartments: Top 5 Apartment Friendly Dogs With Low Price (2020)

If your content is about timeless features, years are not necessary. For the trending topics, sensitive matters, a year is a must. 


Thumbnail for a video is the first thing a person sees to watch your video from their homepage or search results. So, it must be more attractive even if you don't have perfect content, it will bring you more views and other engagements. 

A random image from your video taken by YouTube doesn't seem to be well. Go for a custom thumbnail to make it more attractive than that.

How To Get Unimaginable Traffic On YouTube With Facebook Ads?

Here's the golden way.

     Hit The Viewer With Bang:

The starting three seconds of every video gives 50% value to the Video Ads of Facebook. That electrified three-second reveals whether someone scrolls by your content or stops scrolling. Hook the people from your 3 seconds.

     Know the CPC (Cost Per Acquisition):

Understand the fact of CPC ( Cost Per Click); it varies by similar industries, averaging $1.80. It would be more expensive for a single click. Since you have completed SEO, you will gain more clicks on it.

When driving the traffic from YouTube, you need to measure the acquisition of bud subscribers.

The calculation of Cost per acquisition is 

          Total Cost for clicks / Total number of new subscribers

     Be Selective:

It is better to run the Facebook Ad to 1000 peoples for the right audience than 1 lakh people who are not the right audience. 

Broadening your ads may lead you to get misclicks that you need to pay. It also leads to a click wasted without getting any engagement for your content.


You can go for a Go-target matter on Facebook. You must do this if you are running a local business. Also, it is more helpful for the worldwide market, since it needs to cover targeted customer areas. 

     Be Honest:

While doing an ad on Facebook, it asks about your video content objective. Be honest to answer it correctly to gain better results.

If you need to drive YouTube traffic but giving your objective as "Get installs of your app" does not play well. "Get video views" is the exact objective of your ad.
