How does the YouTube SEO algorithm really work?
The way the YouTube SEO algorithm works is simple if you think about it from the perspective of a massive corporation. YouTube wants to sell ads, that's how they make their money. Therefor, the YouTube algorithm promotes content that is engaging, and keeps viewers on the platform.
The YouTube algorithm actually has two main parts, the YouTube SEO algorithm, and the YouTube suggested algorithm. While both algorithms work together to show users engaging content, the YouTube SEO algorithm specifically works by answering search queries. Each time someone types a term into the YouTube search bar, the YouTube SEO algorithm wants to serve them the video that best answers their questions.
In order to rank content in search results for keywords, the YouTube SEO algorithm measures several factors.
The first thing the YouTube SEO algorithm looks for is the keywords in your video Title, description, timestamps, hashtags, and video tags. All of these factors play a huge role in optimizing your video for search results, and are the first thing you should focus on if you want to get more organic views on your videos. Ranking highly in search results is one of the best ways to get traffic to a new video.
The second thing the YouTube SEO algorithm tracks is video engagement. More specifically, user engagement. The YouTube SEO algorithm is tracking everything that happens from the moment your thumbnail appears on someone screen in search results. The algorithm tracks click through rate, but then measures several other factors many people don't think about.
For example, watch time is one of the most important factor when it comes to ranking videos on YouTube. It's not enough to just get a lot of clicks (views;) you actually need engaged viewers who watch your video all the way through, and ideally like, comment on, and share your video. The more this happens, naturally, the more the YouTube SEO algorithm will "think" your content is popular, and show it to more people.
It's actually possible to manipulate the YouTube SEO algorithm!
