How To Get More Views On YouTube By Avoiding These 4 Mistakes

by birtanpublished on September 22, 2020

So in this video I'm going to share for different reasons why you may not be getting views on your YouTube videos now the common thought is that if you make some YouTube video so you throw them out there and all of a sudden overnight you start watching these views pouring in

But in reality that's just not how it works YouTube is the second largest search engine in the world only behind Google so imagine trying to create a blog or an article and it popping up number one when somebody searches in a

Term it's very difficult to do that from scratch but in this video I'm going to share some different things that you can do and some different reasons as to why you may not be getting some of those views or as many views as you would like

To be getting on your YouTube channel especially when you're first starting off these are really important tips and you want to consider so if you're new here to the channel make sure you subscribe for more videos like this one

Drop a like on this video if you enjoy it and let's get started with this one so the first thing that I think people need to be aware of and the reason why some people aren't getting views is because they're doing something called

Sub for sub now sub for sub in theory sounds like a great idea it's you subscribe to me I subscribe to you you'll probably see those comments on a lot of these videos that I create people comment that they say hey I'm

Subscribing to everybody who subscribes to my channel and they might put that down in the comment section and this can seem like a great idea to get a couple hundred subscribers maybe a thousand subscribers and you can kind of build

Some credibility but it actually really hurts you over the long run over the lifetime of your channel and it actually hinders your ability to grow and there's a reason for this it's because YouTube really cares about engagement

Now YouTube wants to see that if you have 100 subscribers and you put out a video and you get absolutely zero views it means that none of those hundred people that's a full massive classroom full of people are interested in what

You have to say so if you're getting just random people to subscribe to your channel it's probably not the best thing to do you want people who are actually interested in your content so don't just go out there and try to get as many

Subscribers as possible who aren't interested in your content it won't make any sense and over the longer like I said it's not gonna help you now in other reasons why some people aren't getting views is because they're not

Optimizing for search so you want to really consider this one thing that I really do in a lot of my videos if you look over in my primary channel you look at some of my top videos I like to front-load my videos it's called

Front-loading videos and it actually does work I've seen a lot of benefits to doing this by putting the keywords the most important topic or really meeting potatoes of your video put those words first in the video title instead

Of putting them at the end so a perfect example of this is one of my top videos I believe it might actually be my top video on my other channel it starts off with passive income the keywords there that I want people to look for and

Search for because thousands of people are searching for that per month so put that first and then the rest of the title later now if I switch to that around it probably would not have over a million views would probably have 20 or

30 or 40,000 views but nowhere near will it got because I put the most important part in the beginning and I do this with a number of my other videos as well we try to do it as much as possible sometimes it just doesn't work if you

Try to think of a title you say well this just looks kind of funky it looks weird then that's okay you don't absolutely have to front-load them but try your best to do that and to create titles that people are actually

Searching for cramming in the keywords into there so that you can do well with it now another thing you can do a couple little tips you can use one of them I like to put the date so I'll put 2019 in brackets at the end of it not always but

I'd like to throw that in there to help it rank for that particular year and kind of beat out all those other videos that maybe we're from 2018 or 2017 or 2016 you can beat those out just by putting the date there so the year that

It may be for helps you rank with that and then another thing you can do is actually just using brackets there's been Studies on this let's show that if you use brackets or parentheses at some point in your video people are actually

More inclined to click I'm not entirely sure why that's the case but it is so it's not a little tip there for you to increase some click-through rates now another thing that people are doing to really kind of hurt their ability to get

A lot of views is they're actually attracting the wrong audience so a lot of people will kind of go out there and try to find a way to get people to watch their videos and so they'll start throwing their link around places

They'll start throwing their link up on various different forums maybe on Reddit maybe on Quora they'll start saying watch my video watch my video maybe throw it up on Instagram and other social media things and Twitter and

Facebook but the problem here is that sometimes they can be attracting the wrong audience and this kind of goes back to what I was saying about sub4sub but a little bit different so when you're trying to promote your video

Don't be promoting a Christian Bible video that you created to a group of people who are from a different religion it just doesn't make any sense and the watch time on that video will prime not do very well because the people just

Aren't interested in it so you want to think about the demographics of people who are actually watching your videos and interested in your videos and don't promote it to the wrong type of people because if you do that the watch time

Decreases and that is one of the most important metrics I would argue to be the most important metric that YouTube cares about which is watch time so people are clicking on your video and after five seconds or clicking off

Because this is not what they signed up for then the it's not gonna do well and your video is not gonna go anywhere that's how it works YouTube wants to see a video that's gonna do very well and have a lot of

Watch time now the final one is kind of interesting as well and this is by having a vague channel name so what's really interesting about this is that I kind of have a vague channel name my main channel is my name just Nate

O'Brien and this channel central media but both of them don't really describe what the channels actually do now if you're starting a channel from zero subscribers or maybe subscribe yourself you know get four or five subscribers

Basically your own account subscribing to yourself that's how I started but a great way to do this to kind of grow a little bit better is to comment on other channels but when you do this it's nice to have in your actual channel name the

Topic of your actual videos so I see a lot of people doing this for the field that I'm in where they'll say maybe their name and then investing videos or personal finance videos or YouTube growth videos and they'll put that in

Their channel name which is a great way to get people to start clicking on your channel in the comment section will say oh this person is creating this certain type of video that I'm interested in they're more likely to click on that and

You're gonna be able to convert people a lot more to get more people onto your channel to get more views now that's the person which was that you have to make for yourself I never made that choice it just took a lot longer to grow though

Because I used just my name and people didn't know who I was when they searched it just didn't make any sense so then they click on me because I could be talking about anything Nate O'Brien who's who's that it just didn't make any

Sense as you know they weren't able to make that connection between Nate O'Brien and maybe investing in personal finance or anything business-related but you know over time then you can kind of potentially drop that little thing

That says investing videos or personal finance videos or YouTube growth videos and that's just something that I thought was kind of important to mention so if you found any value in this video thanks again for supporting the channel really

Do appreciate it thanks for subscribing and I'll see everybody in the next video
