How to get lots of views without lots of subscribers.

I have a secret to tell you.

I don't have a lot of followers or subscribers. But I'm still making money with YouTube videos with tens of thousands of views.

The trick is called Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

You need to know how to get your videos to show up in search engines.

Late on in this course is a section titled "How to game the system - YouTube Search".

That's going to go more in-depth on this topic, but here's just a quick teaser.

I could actually write an entire book on SEO, (perhaps someday I will) but we're going to keep it basic for this lesson. 

The most important things you need to know.

Quick SEO primer: it's all about keywords and the content. 

The more descriptive your content is, focused on your keyword, the better you'll do.

For this lesson, we'll use an example that is real: the keyword "master treasure hunter". 

If you search that keyword in Google (with or without the quotes) you'll get two videos near the top, both of them mine. 

Those two videos alone have made me thousands of dollars.

So, they'll make a great example.

The videos show how to do that achievement (remember when I said to teach what you know). 

The main keyword I wanted to rank for was the achievement name.

First, before you upload your video to YouTube, you need to make sure the file name is your keyword.

Then, when you upload, you want the keyword to be near the front of the title.

In your description, you should write a fairly decent length description, with your keyword, that accurately describes your video. 

Don't slam a bunch of keywords down at the bottom...it looks like crap and it's obvious.

The search engines are smarter than that, and people are less likely to subscribe when they see it.

You also want to manually add in closed captioning. 

You have to do the manual one because the automatic doesn't work well.

In the tags section, throw in every single tag you can think of that makes sense. 

Seriously, go wild, but keep it all true. 

Don't start adding stupid tags in because you think they'll get you more views.

And there you have it. 

The most important things you need to know. 

Of course, there's a lot more you can do to help, but this is the absolute minimum you should be doing for each video.

We'll go more in depth later in the course.
