How to break into the first page of YouTube search results: title, description and tags

Have you ever thought about adding metadata to your videos? In this Movavi vlog video, we will tell you how to make your channel stand out and attract viewers to watch your entire video. ♡ Like this video? Say thank you to us! Subscribe to our channel, give this video a thumbs-up, and ring that bell below. Watch our video about YouTube end screens - one of the most important tools for promoting your footage on YouTube: And now let's start with the most important question: how do people find a particular video on YouTube? There are two main ways: YouTube search and the YouTube recommendations on the right of your video. These are also called 'suggested' videos. But what can you do to stand out among the many videos? Firstly, make bright and easy-to-understand thumbnails for your video – we talked about this in this video: And also use the metadata correctly: name, description, tags. ➤ Title. The title is the first association with your video. There are different ways to make your title more attractive for a search engine. It never hurts to pick something intriguing, or that gives a clue as to what your video is about. The main thing is that your title accurately reflects the essence of the video. We recommend you make your title short and to the point while still being descriptive. Just put yourself in the shoes of your viewers and ask yourself: How would I find this video? or What words would I use in the search?. ➤ Description. The description gives viewers the gist of the video. Pay attention to the first 3 lines of your description: that’s all the viewer sees before they click on the video. Add appropriate keywords to your description and you will be able to improve the position of your videos in search results, as well as increase views and viewing time. Besides basic info about the video, you can also add some interactive elements like links to your description. This will increase the number of views and attract new viewers to your channel. ➤ Tags. Don't forget about Tags. You can add them to your video in the video settings. Add keywords to the tags to help people find your video in YouTube searches. Start with more general, broad-based tags. Then add tags that are relevant to this particular video. Are you interested in learning more about promoting your videos on YouTube?

Good info!!! 😁👍 But; If I search for my own video with my own video title and name, Still some other (not going to mention the name) comes on top. Wich really, really annoys me.!🤤😈😈 How does he beat the system. Does he enter all competititors in the tag system. And if so, Is it something wich escapes Youtubes attention. If I put him in my tags. Will I get rid of him. I'm just a beginner. My channel is 4 weeks old. I need to do something.

Hello! I have a question. Some YouTube Channels when searched in the search bar has this section of Latest From (Your Channel Name) and some don't have that. How can I possibly achieve that? For instance when my channel name is search my Channel Icon will pop out and underneath has a section of Latest From JustShanen How can I do that? Thank you so much!

Hi! The same thing is happening with Community tab. Some channels have it and some don't. YouTube always tests new features on a limited number of channels. My theory is that Latest From (Your Channel Name) feature is one of them. We can't enable it until YouTube lets all users have it. The same thing was happening with end screens in the beginning of the last year. We just have to wait and see.

Very informative! I like how Movavi has YouTube advice on the side. I admit, in other videos I've watched, I didn't know about custom thumbnails, the audio library, and some other YouTube recommendations. I now have 188 subscribers.

Hello, i' have the latest Movavi video suite and i'm happy whit it, it's the best software. But we really need more animated titles & intro title. Currently all media channels and network accounts use the animated titles and animated objects to make their videos more attractive. Please add more animated intri titles & improve the animation so we can rotate the pictures for example on our slideshows. Thanks a lot.

Thanks a lot for your feedback! We're working on adding more animated titles into the program. But now you can make them yourself as well if you use an animation feature.

Hey Movavi. There was a recent update to movavi video editor, and it behaves a bit differently. I like the change to transitions. But, if you have a transition. when you drag the left side of a clip, it shifts the whole clip back to the it's initial location. It never used to do that, and it's pretty annoying. I'm also pretty sure that only applies to the top line media. Sorry if that doesn't make much sense. Here's a quick example of what i'm talking about: (unlisted).

I haven't got a response from support about this yet. I just submitted another ticket. Hopefully it can be resolved. In the latest update (17.2.0) the problem is still not resolved. Thank you for keeping in contact

OpenGL is working as it should. It began happening immediately after the latest update. Hopefully there will be a hotfix for it :\

Hi! No, it's not intentional. It's a program's bug. Sorry about that. Try this instruction: If that doesn't help, we'll address it to our support team :)

Not sure why, but on larger videos, Movavi freezes for about four seconds after every action. I've also noticed this in other people's videos. Could you fix this? Also congrats on 50,000 subscribers!
