RESOURCES & LINKS:
Funny enough, Google also owns YouTube, so technically, they own the first and second most popular search engine. That means if you’re able to rank a video on YouTube for keywords that people care about, it’ll be seen by thousands of people and it’ll also rank well on Google over time. All of that sounds great, but YouTube is becoming more and more competitive. Thousands of creators in every niche are competing for probably attention and a lot of them are targeting the same audience as you.
But the good news is that YouTube is nowhere near as competitive as Google. And even if you’re just starting, you can rank videos on YouTube. Back in 2017 when I started my YouTube channel, things were tough. I’ve always been great at writing content, but it’s an entirely different game when it comes to video. I also knew how to do SEO and get millions of visitors to my website, but all that knowledge was hard to use on YouTube and it didn’t translate directly. So in other words, what worked for Google, didn’t really work for YouTube. Some of it sure did overlap, but it was a different algorithm.
So I decided to crack the code and understand YouTube’s algorithm and share it with you. And in order to do that, I had to create lots of content. And I mean, lots of content. I started pushing out videos every single day. When I started my YouTube channel, I was doing at least one video a day. I want to learn a few things, so I needed data on what worked and what didn’t.
A lot of what I learned back then no longer applies to YouTube in this day and age, but I found out there are three steps that you need to take in order to rank on YouTube that worked back then and still work today and they’re super effective.
