youtubewarezampcomcb7fp61Strategic video tagging is one of best ways to get viewers to click on your YouTube videos and continue to generate additional viewers.

YouTube allows you to tag your videos with keywords for Search Engine Optimization.

By properly using relevant keywords and long tail keyword phrases your videos will quickly start showing up in relevant Google searches.

When you initially upload your video to YouTube and for the first week or so that your video is online; keyword tags aren’t really necessary for video optimization.

Instead, you can just use tags to control which of your videos will show up in the YouTube “Related Videos” box.

The idea behind strategic video tagging is to make it as easy as possible for viewers to access all your content and not jump away to “related” content that really has nothing to do with your brand.

Strategic video tagging is the correct selection of a few unique tags that you will use for all of the videos that you initially post on YouTube.

These are unique tags; not obscure tags.   There is a difference.

Unique tags are tags that no one else is currently using on any other YouTube video.

When you isolate them and tag your video correctly, you will have full control over the videos that show up as “Related Videos”.

After a few days or weeks when your views start to taper off, it is time to add some additional targeted generic tags to your video.

If you add a few targeted long tailed keyword tags to your videos as they begin to appear in the YouTube and Google search engine results, you will be able to keep your views up.

Although strategic video tagging isn’t a new concept in video marketing; it is currently way under utilized by most of the YouTube publishers online.
