Youtube SEO With Blog Post Link Love

The official name of this tutorial is ” Youtube SEO  Or How to Get Youtube Views By Ranking Higher With Blog Post Link Love” but that’s too long for a blog post so I shortened it for you 🙂

It’s just one of dozens of youtube ranking techniques that I share with my students that can help you grab more free traffic from youtube.

But remember… it’s not just about getting more hits on youtube… once you get the video views you have to make sure you properly design your youtube channel and your individual videos to “legally steal” traffic from youtube  to build a bigger list and make more sales.


Here are a few things to remember about “Blog Post Link Love”:

1. This isn’t a new “Youtube SEO” technique that will go away tomorrow, I’ve been using and teaching it for years and it works.
2. Youtube loves incoming links so run a full-blown incoming link campaigns for your most important videos, especially for highly competitive phrases.
3. This Youtube ranking tactic works with both new videos and old videos.
4. This also works for both new blog posts and old posts, however…
5. The more “seasoned” the blog, the more powerful the link will be which means you should concentrate on building incoming links to your blog posts in order to help increase the power of the “blog post link love” you send to your videos on Youtube.
6. Use your primary keyword phrase as the anchor text of your link.
7. Link directly to the video watch page on Youtube if your goal is to increase the rankings of the video (as opposed to the ranking of your channel).

    You are actually ranking #1 for that keyword both on Google Video’s Search and on youtube.

    Does the total number of views the video gets from the blog post really matters ? or even if you do it on a brand new blog with no other content will work the same way ?

      total views and how quickly they get them count towards ranking for youtube, but they aren’t the only thing they look at.

      However, as you can see I haven’t promoted this video so there aren’t that many views, nor have I ran an incoming links campaign, and I probably won’t.

      It was just a test designed to show you how much juice just a few well placed, and legitimate, links can give you. Looks like it works 🙂

      But you also need to optimize the video in other ways as well, it’s not just about incoming links.

    Great tutorial Jeff! I’ve been getting more into YouTube seo and marketing the last few weeks and it definitely works faster and is easier then ranking a new site.

    Absolutely fantastic little tutorial, Jeff! I definitely will put this info to good use immediately. Sometimes it’s the simple ideas that are the most powerful. I’ve embedded YouTube videos before, but I would not have known the power of also adding a link back with the keyword phrase in the anchor text. And I certainly wouldn’t have thought to do it using a “seasoned” blog post instead of a recent post.

    Thank you so much! Blessings to you!

    Awesome Jeff. I’ve been doing some videos recently with the aim of ranking on both YouTube and Google. For Youtube itself, it is pretty quick to hit the first page by building links but for Google, still yet to show up on the front page. I’ll try out your anchor text + embedding technique to help boost the ranking 🙂

    Awesome and thanks
    I’m started making Presentoons lately as an alpha tester for Powtoon (google powtoon) but I was looking for a way to optimise my creations – cheers!
