Welcome to another episode of Youtube Income Challenge. In this video, we’ll talk about how to do keyword research for your videos.  If you are new to this challenge, and want to participate, you can still submit your entry until 31st October 2014. As long as you submit your video responses to the previous posts you are in the challenge. To start from the beginning, watch this video.

Tip Of The Week

Before creating any videos, wouldn’t it be great to look through a crystal ball and find out what your viewers really want? This is where keyword research is really important and it can really help you increase your views and more engagement on your Youtube videos.

When doing keyword research, the 4 things you want to look out for are:

  • relevance of the keyword in your niche
  • traffic to your niche or the number of visitors per day
  • competition
  • commercial value

Here are three tools that I recommend to use to find out and do keyword research for Youtube:

How To Use Youtube Keyword Research Tool

You can use the Youtube Keyword Research tool by visiting socialvideohub.com/youtubekeywordtool.

Type in the keywords you are looking for in your niche and it shows you the number of views, level of competition and commercial value.

How To Use Long Tail Pro

This is a software I use to find keywords quickly and to see if they are suitable. Let’s take a look at how you can use Long Tail Pro:

  • Step 1 is finding keywords in your niche. Simply create a new campaign by adding a name (such as the keyword you are targeting), select the country you are targeting for and the search network you want to research in.
  • Step 2, in the Generate keywords section, enter the keyword you want to research for and click add. You can add as many keywords you like here or let Long Tail Pro find more for you. Then select apply filters. Ideally you want to have a minimum of 80 searches per day and a dollar value of 0.80 per click. You can change these values at anytime. Then select the “generate keywords” button.
  • Step 3 is to review your keywords and the level of competition. Click on “advertiser competition” to sort this column in ascending order. Find the keywords with low to medium competition and these will be your first set of keywords you can begin to use. In addition, the higher the dollar value in the average CPC column, the better it is for the keyword. If there are any keywords with high competition that you want to rank for, then by all means keep it in your list, otherwise click the cross to remove keywords with “high competition”.
  • Step 4 is to test these keywords on Youtube by simply typing it into the search bar. If you see that Youtube suggests the keywords and there are other videos with a minimum of 10,000 views then these are the keywords you should use.
