When you are trying to become the next big YouTuber, you have to understand how the YouTube algorithm works. Here is your first lesson in hacking the YouTube algorithm 101.
It’s all about the keywords
Even if you think the views on your videos makes them rank higher, you are wrong. The main thing that is important to YouTube is relevance. If you use the keywords right, you can rank high even if you didn’t have that many views initially.
Think about search phrases
When you are using keywords, you have to think about what context your audience would use them. You have to put yourself in their shoes and think about the content that they need.
The Algorithm loves outside attention
The more views you get from links on social media, the better. The algorithm ranks these videos higher.
Views in the first 24 hours
Views of your videos are important, but not all the time. The algorithm ranks videos based on the first 24h views of the posting of the video.
Watch time of your videos
The algorithm also considers videos more relevant if they have long watch times by the audience. The more your audience sticks to your videos, the better the rank.
Don’t miss out
