Hey so in this video I'm gonna share with you a few different tips and tricks that I use in order to rank some of my videos in the top 10 search results for incredibly incredibly competitive search terms such as make money or make money online or really anything with the word money in it I was able to rank my videos pretty high up in those results in multiple of those videos so I want to share with you how I was able to do this and generate millions of views by ranking these videos but first make sure you hit the subscribe button so that you don't miss any more videos like this one where we help people grow their YouTube

Channels and grow their social platforms and market themselves and their businesses so that they can make more money and have a greater impact on the world so when I first started on YouTube I started a long time ago back in 2011 I started making videos and they never really caught on I would think I'd make a cool and nice video I'd put it out and get four views over its lifetime it still has four views some of these videos right because I didn't know how to actually rank these videos and I wasn't understanding why they weren't getting views and over time I thought my

Content got better by 2016 I thought my content was somewhat better and it was worthy of at least getting a couple hundred views right but it wasn't generating any views and it wasn't able to figure it out and I would ask my friends to watch the videos and like the videos and I thought about maybe some BOTS but no nothing really worked nothing worked to actually grow these YouTube videos and grow these YouTube channels and so I want to share with you the tips and tricks that I used in order to really find some some hacks and some tricks and tips that I use that are the

Most important factors when trying to rank YouTube videos in the top search results for YouTube so the first one in the most important and this is by far the most important in 2019 or whenever you're watching this video that is watch time and watch time percentage see youtube back in the day they used to care a lot about views and how many views you got and that that's really how they would decide whether or not they wanted to promote your video more and show to other people now YouTube cares a lot about watch time percentage and total watch time in a videos so for

Watched on percentage the longer people are staying on your video the better off you are so YouTube will love videos that are getting watch time percentages of like 50 55 60 or upwards percent of that video being watched so if you have a 10 minute video and you're an average view time of six minutes on that video that's a 60% watch time that's a really good watch time and if you have that watch time on that I mean people are really sticking around they're really into your content and YouTube loves that because the longer you are on the platform the longer the

Viewer is on the platform the better off you're gonna be in the better chance you're gonna have at ranking the video higher and higher and higher in the search results now going along with that watch time percentage is total watch time and that's why you want to think about making longer videos especially if you're doing something like a tutorial I found that longer videos rank so much better than shorter videos and one of the best ways to sort of hack this and and understand this is find some of your competitors and then look at how long those videos are in the top search

Results and there's a good chance that a lot of these videos are pretty long if it's a tutorial usually the longer the better up to maybe an hour so give or take a little bit but if if you kind of think about this so think back to the early days of YouTube maybe say 2009 right back in 2009 you go on YouTube you go unlike the trending page or the most popular videos most of them are like 30 seconds long they're a minute long two minutes long they're very short clips now you look at YouTube and most of those videos that are trending doing

Well they're 10 15 20 minutes or more in length and that's because YouTube wants people to stay on their platform you got to think about what YouTube wants they want people on their platforms for the longest period of time so that's why they will promote your video if it's longer and people are staying engaged on your video so make sure that you're doing things throughout the video to keep people engaged that's why we're still gonna give you two more very important tips that are going to help you grow your YouTube channel see see what I just did right there I just said

That we're gonna give you two more coming up in the next couple of minutes is going to help you so much to grow your YouTube videos right there I just kind of kept you into this video and the longer you watch the video the better off this video will do but I think we will get some pretty good points in here that are very very essential to actually growing a YouTube video and ranking it number one up those spots we can get millions of views on some of these different videos now the next most crucial aspect to boosting a youtube video – making sure that it blows up or

Does very well or goes viral you need to have high engagement now this sounds obvious but look there's ways to actually hack this there's ways to make higher engagement so for some of my videos they're some of the best ones I'll really entice people to subscribe to the channel to comment and to like the video so right now go ahead hit the subscribe button to this channel so you don't miss any more videos like this one where we help people build their YouTube channel market themselves market their business grow their social profiles and just

Saying that in itself will encourage people to subscribe and what does it tell YouTube when people are subscribing very very often to your channel when they watch your video if-if-if 10 out of 100 people which is a pretty high percentage if 10 out of 100 people are subscribing your channel off of a video that tells YouTube something it tells them that you know people are really engaged and they really like this person so they are going to promote your video more so make sure you actually subscribe to the channel so you don't miss any more videos like this but you want to

Also entice people to comment so the more comments you get the better off it'll be YouTube loves engagement just like with Instagram and Facebook they all love engagement on their platforms because it means that people are engaged in it and so you can do a couple things you can ask people questions you have question of the day or you can do giveaways now I've done this before and some of my other videos that have done very well I'll say hey I'm giving away some free books just some free books of my favorite books to some of my favorite comments so make me laugh and then you

Get some really interesting comments on some of those videos but it gets a lot of comments and gets a lot of different ideas people are throwing them in there and it's boosting the overall video you can also ask people to like the video so drop a like in the video and this will boost your video just just say it don't be afraid to say these things throughout the video because people will take action on them and a lot of people don't really think about it like if you don't ask somebody to subscribed they might just not really think about they might not take the action to actually

Physically hit the subscribe button so that is a crucial key to growing your YouTube video and growing your channel and the third most important factor is to have a high click-through rate now this really equates to having a very appealing thumbnail and usually when people think about thumbnails they think all the more flashy colors the more neon the more glittery gold the better off the video is gonna be but that's not true you want to have something what I found is simple enough so that people can digest what's going on in the thumbnail so that they can understand

The the basic concept of the video and it's it's going to people to click on it a lot more often that's why you look at my thumbnails I use just a couple of words I try to keep it to 5 words more or less sometimes 6 words or less but nothing too crazy you don't want sentences it's it's it's something you wanna keep very simple very clean but the higher the click-through rate the better your video is going to be in terms of getting promoted on YouTube YouTube loves when people are clicking on your video like crazy and then is how you get your views

In the first place so you need that is one of the most important aspects that people kind of overlook they think Oh like a thumbnail I can just throw together or I can just keep it as the default thumbnail that's a terrible option you want to have something that's enticing that's simple enough to kind of digest and comprehend and but it's something that people have want to click on so you wanna get that click-through rate as high as possible because the more people that are seeing your video on the side and clicking it over those 10 other videos or their 20 other videos

That might be popping up on the side or on the bottom of your video how are you gonna get people to click on that you want to think about that now one more tip that I think is very crucial you want to gain social proof and this takes time but the more subscribers that you get the more subscribers that are going to subscribe to your channel so the first hundred subscribers are the most difficult by far the most difficult I think it took me like two and a half months to get my first hundred subscribers on YouTube and that's because who's gonna subscribe to a

Channel when you have five subscribers I think my first 10 subscribers were myself I think I just made 10 different accounts and subscribe to myself but once you get that social proof that shows that you are a youtuber that you're trying to build a channel or grow your YouTube videos into very highly ranking YouTube videos people are going to subscribe to it and the more people to subscribe the more people who are enticed to is to subscribe to that channel so those are a few different tips that I think are incredibly useful for growing your YouTube videos this is

What I use this is just the best ideas that I could throw out there for you and everything that I understand from YouTube into a condensed a little video here so thanks for watching the video I'll see everybody next time on the channel and have a great day
