How to Drive Traffic to Your YouTube Channel
Should you drive traffic to your YouTube channel? 100 hours of video uploaded per minute to YouTube can’t be wrong.
Here are some tips to keep in mind to win some clicks
1. Choose carefully your thumbnail
In other words, make it appealing. YouTube automatically gives you three thumbnail options to choose from when you upload a video, but if you feel you need something catchier, customize and upload your own. It goes a long way.
2. Think over your title and video description
The very first term should be relevant, such as a keyword and you should follow that with what is featured in the video, building a keyword phrase. While your title should be clear and concise, the video description is where you can go a little more in depth.
The description can include a keyword phrase, your URL, and a mini-post that briefly describes the content of your video.
3. Create a Custom Background Image
4. Make Your Best Video “Featured”
Here’s how: Go to your “Creator Studio” settings and select “Featured Content” from the left menu under “Channel”. Then click the “Feature Content” button and choose if you want to use the most recent uploaded video or choose a new video or playlist.
5. Add Channel Tags
6. Pay Attention to Comments
Remember; clean up if you have to. Delete or report spam comments, if not, it comes off as if you may be ignoring your channel.
7. Recent Activity is a win-win situation
It’s a simple way to make YouTube contacts, and it may bring viewers to your page.
Video owners who’ve been liked or favorited are more likely to click through to take a look at your content in return.
8. Users like playlists
