How To Write A Good Video Description On YouTube To Boost Views


The video description is usually underestimated
and undervalued. You should best utilize the box under the
video to show the value your video offers so that viewers can see why your video is
the one they should choose to watch. Writing a good description will determine
if your video is going to be ranked on search results or not along with the title and tags. You have 5000 character limit and you should
use them wisely. I will show you how to write the best YouTube
titles to get views and will share with you a professional YouTube description template. If this is your first time here and you want
to build a successful video marketing strategy and grow your business’ YouTube channel
start now by subscribing and clicking on the bell icon so you don’t miss anything. So, how to write effective YouTube descriptions? 1. Don’t Use A Link In The Very Beginning Of
Your Description If you don’t want to damage your search
rankings then don’t use the link to your website or your offer in the beginning of
the video description. This will hurt the click through rates as
you are having around 125 characters to provide relevant description that will answer your
viewer’s question. Descriptions help the audience to decide if
they will watch the video or not. Always put in mind that the description will
help to improve your video discoverability and connect with your audience and make them
take action. 2. Write A Brief Summary About Your Video
Try to use your main keywords along with your complimentary keywords in the first 100-300
words. This will help you to have an optimized video
description that will help to tell YouTube more about your video. I see some people include the video transcription
in the description, but this is not important if you already have added a closed caption
for your video. You can also add a subscribe link to your
channel. 3. The Rule Of The First 5 Lines
When you search for videos on YouTube and on the search results page you will find that
the first two lines of the description are displayed under the video and when you click
on any video you will find the first five lines of the description just right above
the SHOW MORE tab. The first five lines will help your viewers
to know more about your video and will help YouTube to rank it with the relevant keywords. 4. Create A Template In The Upload Default Settings
You can create a template and use it whenever you upload a new video. This will save you a lot of time and will
keep a consistent branding across your videos on the channel. Don’t forget to use clickable links in your
description. You can add your website, your blog, your
social media links, your affiliate offers or your lead magnet links. Be sure to use a full URL format to be clickable
(http://website.com) 5. Professional Addons
If you are talking about certain topics or latest studies or articles, then it will be
a good idea to include links to all your relevant resources to increase your credibility. If you have a long video (more than 10 minutes),
you can add timestamps to make it easier for your viewers to watch the most interesting
parts. If you are using pictures or piece of music
under the fair use act, you can add credits or attributions to the owner
6. Don’t add misleading information
I see a lot of videos having blocks of keywords in the description, and this is considered
a violationof YouTube’s terms of service and can risk your account being terminated. Keywords are used in the tags section. 7. Use Hashtags In Your Description
Adding relevant hashtags to your videos will help your viewers to find your content if
they are searching for related videos. 8. Video Description Template
Part 1: Video Content Description that include your
main keywords for SEO purposes. Include Call To Actions (CTA):
Subscribe to the channel – Download a free ebook – Book a consultation call – Watch
more of your videos. Part 2:
Relevant and helpful text like who you are and how can you help your audiences. You can include another Call To Action. Sometimes after publishing your video, you
can find some mistakes, so this is the best place to provide corrections for your viewers. Part 3:
Contact information (website, blog and email address) and social media links
Part 4: Credits and Disclaimer. YouTube hashtags Don’t waste this opportunity by having an
empty or poorly written video description. A good video description can help your channel
to stand out. Thanks for watching. Hit the thumbs up if you enjoyed today’s video
