A little known search engine optimization secret that many new content providers are utilizing is YouTube traffic. Although YouTube is primarily a video site that’s meant to showcase the video work of different creators, content providers can take advantage of the description field of YouTube videos to get quality web traffic to their sites as well. The goal of this exercise is to submit a tutorial video or something related to an article or piece of content that you’ve written or have posted on your site. By optimizing the tags and description of the video, when people stumble across your video, they’ll be able to follow your links back to your site and find out more about the topic. As the video grows naturally in popularity, more and more traffic will flood to your site and you’ll see the revenue flow begin as well. YouTube is oversaturated with home videos and goofy content, that providing valuable tutorials and informational videos will send your video straight to the top of the search results if people end up resonating with its content. While getting the first few views may be a challenge, once you’ve racked up likes, views, and comments, your video in a particular niche may well be on its way to driving a traffic tsunami and more traffic than you could fathom to your website. Traffic Tsunami – Start Small Before you can start to see hordes of visitors coming to your site from videos you’ve posted on your YouTube channel, you must first start small. Although you may be inclined to try and post all of your content and videos all at once, it’s best to try and space things out so that your subscribers have time to get used to the frequency with which you post. Just like with your articles, you should post one video a day or every other day to keep things fresh and new with your readers and subscribers Posting regularly also helps with your YouTube reputation. There are some bloggers who are clearly on the site just to upload a lot of content quickly and reap the benefits as quickly as they can, but if you slow down your pace and show Google and YouTube that you’re in it for the long haul, they’ll favor your videos more than those that were all uploaded at the same time. As the saying goes, Rome wasn’t built in a day. Taking your time when uploading videos is the ultimate key to long-term growth. If you try and game the system into getting you the traffic you want all in one afternoon, you’re sure to fail. Quality Web Traffic through Proper Descriptions The key to getting traffic from YouTube videos is all in how you write the descriptions. If you’re savvy about what type of information you put into the description of a video, there’s a much higher chance that someone will click through to your website and see what other types of content you write about or provide. First, you must ensure that the first thing people see in your video description is a link to your website. Links are weighted more heavily the higher up they’re placed within a description. Also, if a link is placed on the first line of a video description, it’s going to be the first thing that people see when they go to read the description of your video. Instead of scrolling through what may be a list of tags and credits for a video, they’ll be immediately drawn to the hyperlink that brings them to more content. You can spice up this hyperlink by providing exclusive content that’s only available on your website. Having an eBook or something that can’t be accessed anywhere else will encourage people to check out your site to get their hands on this exclusive content. If you don’t have an eBook or something you can give people, you could always hold some type of competition that is only available through clicking the link in your description. Competitions, however small in prize value, always drive plenty of quality web traffic through to websites. People are always interested in free stuff and if you can provide something of value to them, they’re much more likely to see what it’s all about.
