Let’s break down 8 tips on how to use hashtags to grow your channel and increase your views.
Tip #1 – YouTube takes the first 3 hashtags in your description and uses them as the clickable hashtags right above the title of your video on YouTube. Clickable blue links – also clickable in the description. These have nothing to do with your tags, so you have to go back into your old videos and update your descriptions to include them.
Tip #2 – They are a great way to find relevant videos, and therefore, a great way to get found! As more users click on hashtags and search hashtags you’ll get found!
Tip #3 – Using them will help you get found in YouTube search, Google search! They are great for your video SEO and rankings! Use the YouTube search box to see the auto-suggestions for hashtag ideas!
Tip #4 – Using hashtags will help you show up in the related videos and upcoming videos and get more views!
Tip #5 – Hashtags should have no spaces, don’t use more than 3, More than 15 are completely ignored, Stay relevant! Misleading tags will result in removal of your video in search, Stay away from “touchy topics”.
Tip #6 – When you post a new video, it shows up on top of the hashtag feed as the “lastest videos”, so people following those hashtags see your videos on top if you post consistently!
Tip #7 – Get on it early! Most people are not using hashtags yet, so there are limited videos in most hashtag feeds, this is free real estate you can own! Especially if you post multiple value-add videos with the same hashtags!
Tip #8 – It won’t be long before you can subscribe and follow hashtags, so get on it!
