Youtube optimisation and tools
And if you need to check your videos’ and channel’s rankings, you could use a rank tracking tool. The tool can get pricey for a smaller channel, but the trial is free, and if you don’t feel like you’re getting enough out of it, you can just cancel any time.
Corel VideoStudio is a paid Windows-only video editing tool that has the standard tools you’d expect (crop, resize, trim, rearrange, etc.) as well as a split-screen interface stop motion animation, and more. You can even upload your videos to YouTube directly from the software.
With this intuitive video editing software, you are free to trim, crop and rearrange sections of your video whichever way you like. Plus, the tool allows you to fix shaky videos, insert titles, throw in great visual effects and manage the video’s audio files.
Keywords Everywhere does not give you a lot of keyword suggestions, for sure. That said, it is very useful if you want to be able to check analytics for every Google search you do.
FotoJet is a Canva alternative that includes an advanced YouTube thumbnail creator. It lets you edit and optimize your thumbnail to your heart’s content by adding filters, cropping and resizing, rotating images, and a whole lot more. Like Canva, FotoJet has a drag-and-drop interface that makes it easy to use.
By using tools like Rival IQ you can get a full profile of your competitors’ YouTube presence. You can see a general outline of their growth, what works, what doesn’t, what tags they are using, etc. Use this information to create more effective videos and text-based content.
A free video editing tool that is more advanced than the previous option is Blender. Not only does it offer features that allow you to use the tool for 3D, VFX, rendering, animation, modeling, and even creating video games, it also enables you to trim videos, apply all sorts of filters and transitions — just what YouTubers need.
Above you can see that YouTube suggests several other keywords along with the initial query. Each suggestion can be a great idea for a video topic, but they are awesome long-tail keywords as well. Besides being popular, long-tail keywords are also not very competitive, and, hence, are easier to get ranked for.
It should be mentioned that the tool enables you to add extra keywords before and after the target query just like KeywordTool.io, but it also lets you select the parsing depth, and examine included and excluded keywords. Furthermore, the results can be clustered together into groups and easily sorted by their cost-per-click, rank and volume.
Descriptions and titles are important information for YouTube users. When you include the right keywords in your YouTube video descriptions and titles, users are better equipped to decide if your video is right for them. In this section, you’ll find YouTube optimization tools that can help you find the keywords that will get your videos ranked and viewed.
YouTube’s own analytics tool is one of the best tools you can use to find out where your channel is succeeding and where it isn’t. You can use it to learn more about your audience and the content that grabs them, improving your YouTube video views, and keeps them engaged. You’ll also be able to check out the watch time on your videos (a signal in YouTube’s search algorithm) and how your following is growing.
Adding subtitles follows a similar process, however, you can limit the amount of text you want displayed. For either, head to your video manager then click on “Videos” under “Video Manager.” Find the video you want to add subtitles or closed captioning to, and click the drop-down arrow next to the edit button. Then, choose “Subtitles/CC.” You can then select how you’d like to add subtitles or closed captioning.
