Youtube is a great platform to show your talents and even get paid for doing it. So in this article, we are going to discuss Youtube hashtags and keywords.
You will also get the best trending youtube hashtags that will boost your views.
Let’s face it, being a YouTuber is hard. It drains you mentally and physically. It is not as easy and there is always a new challenge that you face.
So my friend wanted to grow his channel from 6 subscribers. He has been posting videos almost consistently. But still was not getting views. Learn how he grew from 6 to 10,00,000 subs in just 7 months.
After intense research and studying the strategies used by the fastest growing youtube channels, I found that there are many things that we should not do.
Trending Youtube Hashtags for Gaming Channels:
Trending Youtube Hashtags for Food Channels:
Trending Youtube Hashtags for Fashion/ Beauty Channels
Trending Youtube Hashtags for Entertainment Channels
Trending Youtube Hashtags for Tech Channels
Trending Youtube Hashtags for Education Channels
3 Important Factors
You need to understand 3 Youtube variable:
- Hashtags: They are tags with the # hash symbol usually present above your video title.
- Tags: They are more specific and are detailed. They are not written with a # hash symbol. Moreover, they are added in the option given to you before publishing the video.
- Keywords: These are the words that determine what your video is all about. They are present in your Title and also in your Description Box.
Things to NOT do in Youtube Tags:
1. Do not over the tag.
You must only use around 3 hashtags. If you have been using more than that, then the Youtube algorithm ignores your videos.
As for tags recommended is to use around 5 – 8 tags in your description.
2. Never use unrelated tags even once.
Imagine you are a cooking channel. And you saw a new trend, it feels like we use it. We also can go trending. But do not use it unless it is directly related. If you do so, the Youtube algorithm catches that. And will immediately stop promoting your videos.
If you have already done something like that, do check it out. And remove it.
3. Do not use tags that are illegal.
You should not use any sexual or illicit words as tags. You can check out more info from Youtube on that. But the basic rule of thumb is to use those words only which a platform can promote without any tensions.
4. Do not use space in your Hashtags
Your hashtags must be without any space. Even if it is a two word like ‘Cute Cats’, you must use the ‘CuteCats’ hashtag only. This is a big mistake many YouTubers make. Do not have any kinds of spaces in your hashtags even if it is a phrase.
Things to DO in Youtube Hashtags:
1. Use a Simple and Unique personal Hashtags and Tags
All the new channels which blew up have done this. And they say this was one of the ways they blew up. Make sure your name is short and catchy. Moreover, use that name in all of your videos. Type it out in ‘Youtube Search’ to find out if it already represents any other brands.
2. Use Tags in Description, Title, Video itself.
Choose one target keyword like a long keyword. And put that in the title. Also, say that same keyword in the video itself. Youtube can understand what is said in your videos. So make sure to add your keywords there.
3. After personal, use broad Tags.
Broad hashtags can be easily searched in the official KeywordTool.io website. Type in your niche related words and you can find hashtags. Use those hashtags that are relevant to your videos.
4.Then use alternative Tags.
You need to use some tags that are related to your channel directly. 2 tags are more than enough for alternative tags.
I want to talk about this channel which blew up recently. James Jani is a Youtuber based in Europe. He does not do crazy camera angles or anything. Or does not use any big equipment. He records in a minimum cost setup right in his house.
What does He do?
He picked a single niche. And targetted tags, keywords, hashtags around that niche. Niche means a specialized market. For instance, tech is a broad niche. And tech reviews for phone is a small niche.
Niche is the current trend of youtube. James Jani’s niche includes closely with business. And started making content as user-friendly as possible.
You may know this. But you can seriously hurt your views if you are going to change your tags frequently. Tags define your video. And by changing tags, Youtube algorithms won’t be able to catch your specific niche. And will ignore your video. If you continue to do so, eventually you will hardly get any views.
And the next important thing he does is speak your keyword or tags in your youtube video at least two times. And I want to show an example of another channel which blew up recently.
The channel name is Dream. As you know, it is one of the fastest-growing gaming channels. Dream is the best example of using youtube tags in the best way. In one of his videos, he says that he has seen hundreds of videos and read blogs. And following all the strategies of tagging, he was the perfect definition of youtube success.
Youtube SEO’s most important factor is tags. Of course, there are many things to consider. But this is the factor that many people miss and lead to failure in the channel.
