10 Tricky ways to increase views on your YouTube Videos

1. Use a proper title

The title is one of the most important parts of a YouTube video. Users always see the title text first and for YouTube search also the video title get most priority. Always keep the video title short and to the point. Also, use current year in the title if it is possible, use power words like “awesome”, “incredible” etc.

It is a good idea to do keyword research for your video title. I suggest you capitalize the first characters of Words of your YouTube video title. take the title of the video seriously as in most of the time users chose a video to watch on YouTube by reading the title.

2. Description of video

YouTube video description is a nice opportunity to use your targetted keywords effectively. I see many YouTubers don’t write enough content in the description. They almost neglect it. But it is also so important to concentrate in the video description and I suggest every YouTubers write long video description for your YouTube videos. It can help to increase the chances a bit to appear the video on the search result for your selected keywords.

3. Create attractive custom video thumbnails

Thumbnail of a YouTube video plays an important role which effects on users decision visually if the user would like to see the video or not. It is always better to create a custom thumbnail for your YouTube videos. Make your thumbnail attractive and make it like that it should reflect the content of the video. Choosing the right picture and adding some text can create help your videos to get more views. Try to keep the aspect ratio 16:9 for your video.

A perfect thumbnail first attracts users visually and then make them read the title. After that, if they like it then they click to watch the video. Thus your Youtube videos can get more views.

4. Use proper video tags

Don’t ignore video tag for your youTube videos. Tags are specified keywords that need to be added to your YouTube video. These keywords describe and highlight the content that is in your video. Proper use of tags for your YouTube videos will help your video to appear on YouTube more frequently and it helps to get more additional YouTube views.

5. Use Annotations across videos

You may see in other’s videos that are available on YouTube some popup texts like “Subscribe!”, “Thumbs” or “See more videos”. Those are called YouTube annotations and those are really so fantastic and nice way to increase your video views on YouTube.

Annotations on a YouTube video is really so great way to point your video viewers in the direction of watching your other videos or to increase the number of subscribers on your YouTube channel. More subscribers you get means more views on your videos.

6. Create and upload quality videos

Your videos on YouTube should be of high-quality. Always add videos which are useful and have sufficient content. Don’t add very short videos. Low-quality videos will create a bad impression for your YouTube videos and the number of views will decrease.

Also if peoples found your video useful and of high-quality then they may embed the video on their website which may give you lots of views on your video. Most probably you will also have seen YouTube players embedded on many other websites.

7. Increase YouTube Subscribers

The more subscribers you have on your channel, more views you will get on your YouTube videos. I have just said it in this articles. So you should increase subscribers. Using annotations on video, creating quality and useful videos can help you to get more subscribers for your YouTube channel.

8. Create Playlists

Most of the users who upload videos on YouTube don’t know that playlist is also a great way to increase views for YouTube videos. A playlist is a list or group of videos on YouTube which will play one video after another after another and thus you will get views for more than one videos that are in the same playlist. Also, each of the videos can come separately on search results of YouTube which are a great opportunity for you. Viewers may choose your playlist or a particular video from the playlist.

9. Allow peoples to Embed Your Videos

If peoples can embed your YoouTube videos on their website and web pages then you will get extra views from their website. The more traffic comes and visits the page where users have embedded your YouTube videos the more views you will get on your video. But your video should be useful and of high-quality. Otherwise, peoples would not like to add your video on their website.

10. Share your video

Sharing your videos on social media like Facebook, Twitter, Google plus will help your videos to get extra views. It should be a regular work whenever you upload and publish a video on YouTube. You can also share your YouTube videos with the online community like Reddit. I suggest you create separate Facebook page and Google page to share YouTube videos.


So these are some of the steps that you can take to get more views on your YouTube videos. So if you have a YouTube channel, then keep in mind about these ways that I have discussed in this article. I hope this post will be helpful to you and most of the others YouTubers.
