YouTube SEO (Part 3): How to Grow My Channel Faster?

Top Video SEO Tricks

Get More Subscribers!

As I mentioned in YouTube SEO Part 1: How to Get Higher Rankings, the number of subscribers is not an indicator for YouTube to rank you higher or provide more views. However, there is a concept and relation between subscribers and views. I have also mentioned: the higher your Retention Rate, comments, likes and dislikes, the higher your video be ranked. Above all it means one thing: you need viewers first.

Here is the trick:

If you have a good number of subscribers, they will usually watch your new uploaded video immediately as they will be notified, and also get your video displayed on their YouTube accounts. That means your video will get views once it has been uploaded immediately.

If you have a good fan base, consider that around 5-30% will watch your videos within the next 3 days.

This will be enough for YouTube to collect data and determine the Retention Rate of your video I talked about in my previous article.

And that’s why subscribers are so important: they provide analytics data for YouTube to rank you accordingly.

But how you get subscribers, then?

Subscribers will subscribe to your channel when they like your video channel. The most important thing, therefore, is to get more views first, so let’s talk about that:

How to Get More Views

Now that you know that the ranking game will start once you get views, here is a trick how to actually get people to watch your video:

While you’re eager to get more and more views, some tend to exaggerate. But be careful. Some of the ways to drive traffic to your channel will also bring your channel down. You can end up facing the closure of your channel if you do a couple things YouTube doesn’t like at all. That’s why in Part 4, I will educate you about the things you should avoid at all times… so, come with me if you want to live, and read Part 4: YouTube SEO: The Don’ts.
