Okay welcome to some more free training from Mark Wightley. Today I wanted to discuss a simple trick to instantly boost your YouTube rankings and in turn increase your traffic.
So watch the video below for the free ranking & traffic tip:
So, I hope you enjoyed the video and remember nothing works unless you actually put it into action.
To break this method down you firstly need to find a keyword or group of keywords that you wish to target.
I always find “How To” or “Product Name” keywords work the best.
Secondly you need to script or do a basic outline of your video. If you script it then it does make creating the transcription a whole lot easier.
If you like to do what I do and that is just record your video’s live or off the cuff then you have a couple of options to get your video transcribed.
You can always do what I normally do if I have the time and that is just watch your video back and write down each of the words that you say. This is a long process and can take a little while depending on how long your video is.
You can always just head over to fiverr or somewhere similar and pay a small amount of money to have it done for you. Make sure its in Plain text and is a txt file so it can be uploaded to YouTube.
For the example in this video I have just taken a simple slide show that I created and copied the words from the slides onto a .txt file in notepad then saved it on my hard drive.
So once you have your video ready to go and the transcription done the next step is to go to your video manager in YouTube.
From the video manager just click on the cc button at the top of the edit page for your video you wish to edit then hit the add captions or transcription button.
After that select one of the 2 options. I have a file ready to go so I’m going to select upload file. Then I simply upload the txt file and hit save. After that YouTube will go ahead and add in the transcriptions to the correct panes and I’m done.
You can always go back into your editor and adjust each of the captions to better match your video.
So that’s it, go ahead and try to do this for each of your video to get higher ranking and a lot more traffic.
