Optimising Your Youtube Channel and Tracks

 

Optimizing your Youtube Channel and tracks are critical in today’s digital age. Many artists In Ireland do not understand the significance of having Both Channel and tracks optimized.

Channel

When Creating a Music Channel, make sure that your Channel “Category” is in the “Music” category. Over the years I have seen about 50% of artists in the wrong category.

Create a good description of the act. The description should be around 300 words for google to see it as good content and Recognise you for google ranking.

You need to have at least 20 tags to your channel. Tags are like mini descriptions of your Channel. Eg. Singer-Songwriter, Band, Ireland, Irish, Music and anything related to what you do and who you are.

You need a decent picture as your profile picture. Make it stands out and appealing to your audience.

Make sure you have these things done correctly so your Channel is fully optimized.

 

Tracks

Now that you have your Channel Page optimized, you are ready to upload your track to your Music channel.

You will need a good title obviously. Try to keep the title short and to the point.

Again you will need a good description and about 300 words. Put in all your information and available links in there too. Having a couple of lines in the description is a major No-No.

Again you need at least 20 tags that are relevant to you, your channel and your new track. All of this is needed so google can read the information and rank you on its pages.

Use the share facility under your tracks. Youtube likes this and so does google.  Copy and pasting links is not a good idea.

Give people some love for their comments. This is also registered in youtube and helps google to recognize your activity on your channel.

Pin one of the comments or pin your own comments thanking everyone for listening. If you can do these few important things then you are giving your Tracks the justice there deserve.

 

Final thoughts

Your channel is seen as pretty much like your website on the youtube platform. Just like a website, it needs to be optimized. Your tracks are seen as blogs on your website and also need the same attention. The more Optimisation and activity around Channel and tracks the better the result.
