Simply publishing videos on YouTube is not enough. You need to provide as much details about your videos so Google can index them and give them a better rank on the search results. Titles, descriptions, keywords and tags are just among the important details you need to consider.

There are various ways to help you rank your YouTube videos and there are tools that can help you do this.

Google Trends

When creating videos, it’s very important that your content is interesting enough for people to watch it. Make sure to research on topics that have high interest on YouTube. Google Trends can help you do this.

To check for topics, just enter the words on the Explore bar and choose YouTube search from the drop-down menu on the results page that will appear next. A graph will let you know how much interest your topic had over the past year. You can check the results by country and look for related search queries.


When it comes to keywords, Ubersuggest is a helpful tool. It can analyze your keyword ideas to help you in using the right ones for your videos.

While on Ubersuggest, simply enter your keyword and choose YouTube from the drop-down menu. After a few seconds, you will get your results. The results will show you the number of searches for your keyword and the competition score.

YouTube Autosuggestions

If you’re running out of keyword ideas, use YouTube’s Autosuggestions search tool. Just enter your topic and suggestions will be shown for your specific keyword.

Autosuggestions is an effective tool as it normally gives keyword ideas that pop up when people search for a topic.


For your video tags, a helpful tool to use is VidIQ. A free Chrome extension, this tool will analyze your tags against your competition. To

use it, first install VidIQ in your Chrome browser and then create a free account. You can then search for keywords and view the top-ranking videos for those keywords.

To check on a video’s tags, go to the new panel on the right and view the SEO details of the video. At the bottom part, you will find all the tags used in the video and by the channel.

Remember that you need to focus on using the right tags instead of putting as many as you like if you want people to watch your videos.
