Just How Does Youtube Bring You Traffic?
Remember the days when the search engines are the only ways to find what you want online? Things are different these days.
Youtube.com now acts like a search engine, with people looking for instructional videos or informational videos on what they want to know.
And that means to say if you put great informational videos or instructional videos on Youtube.com, they will get a chance of being found. And once they are found and viewed, you can lead them to your website through the description box.
How Youtube Eliminates The Competition
If you were to try to search engine optimize (seo) your site or your feeder sites, you’ll have to compete with hundreds of thousands of sites in order to get your site on the first page.
And what’s worst, the number of competition sites increase very rapidly.
However, if you choose to optimize your video and get it on the first page of Youtube.com, chances are your competition won’t be in the hundreds of thousands, but in the hundreds at the most.
Are you seeing how video marketing can really help you to get traffic? You eradicate fierce competition using the power of Youtube.com.
Great! So What Can I Do?
I know I made it sound as though it’s very easy to get your video ranked on the first page of Youtube.com, but again, like SEO, you’ll need to know what to do to get it ranked high.
But of course, like the world’s largest search engine Google.com, no one knows for sure the exact algorithm behind high rankings. Yet there are some tested and proven techniques that people have tried that contribute to good rankings.
We’ll discuss that later in this report. But for now...
How Do You Create Videos?
Many people think that creating videos is very difficult, and I couldn’t agree more. But that was the before the millennium. In modern times, getting a video filmed and edited is much easier than before.
For example, entry level video editing software like the Apple iMovie and Windows Live Movie Maker come standard with every laptop you buy.
And trust me, those are more than sufficient. I use them myself all the time to create amateur videos on Youtube.com.
And couple that with the fact that you can record yourself talking using a digital camera, a webcam or even your smart phone, you literally don’t need any additional gear other than everyday accessories to help you out.
Or if you want to create videos just using your computer like recording an onscreen video, you can use Camstudio (free), Camtasia (paid), or using an online software like Animoto (free and paid).
In any case, it’s best to try out the above options and see what suits you the best. Then stick to that and start creating and uploading your videos.
