Fishing Videos Need Good Titles And Tags To Be Successful

YouTube fishing videos are a great way for anglers to pass the time.  If you're creating fishing videos for others to watch, they need good titles and tags to be successful. A good title will make people want to watch the video, and a good tag will help the video show up in search results.

Without both of these things, it's very unlikely that people will find and watch the video. This is especially true if the video is longer than a few minutes. So, if you have a channel and publish your fishing video content, be sure to spend some time coming up with a catchy and keyword-rich titles and appropriate tags.  The extra time will be worth it in the end.

A Good Title Will Make Your Video Stand Out In Search Results

If you're trying to get people to watch your YouTube video, you need to have a good title. Just like the title of a book or article, your video title needs to be catchy and relevant to the content. A relevant title with the proper keywords will make your video more likely to show up in search results, and it will also give viewers a better sense of what the video is about.

good titles and bad titles for youtube videos
Here's an example of a bad title and a good title: The bad title has no specifics, and doesn't even say what niche the video is about. It could be based on anything, knitting or kangaroos. The good title is very specific, uses relevant keywords and also uses capitalization to catch the reader's eye when searching.

In addition to being catchy and relevant, your title should also contain keywords. YouTube uses algorithms to determine which videos to recommend to viewers, and keywords are one of the factors that YouTube takes into account.  We see SO MANY channels that don't bother to think about the title of the video, and as a result their view count is very low.  So if you want your video to be seen by as many people as possible, make sure to choose a title that includes relevant keywords.

Good Tags Will Help People Find Your Video Even If It's Not What They're Looking For

How many times have you gone on YouTube, thinking you knew exactly what you wanted to watch, only to spend hours scrolling through videos that weren't quite what you were looking for? We've all been there. The good news is, there's a way to make sure your videos are easier for people to find, even if they don't know exactly what they're looking for: by using good tags.  And not only good tags, but by USING tags!  So many channels owners post videos WITHOUT ANY tags at all.  And it's so easy to plug in relevant tags, it's just being lazy if you're not.  And your video has fewer chances of success if you don't use tags.

Adding relevant tags to your YouTube videos can help them show up in more searches, both on YouTube and on other search engines, especially Google.  You may not know it, but Google owns YouTube, so ranking on YouTube means ranking on Google.  That means more people are likely to stumble across your videos and watch them, even if they didn't know they were looking for something like it.

good tags and bad tags
This example of good tags and bad tags should be obvious: The bad tags in this case are no tags at all. The good tags include "long tail" tags which are what someone would naturally be typing in to YouTube when searching for a video.

Here's a good rule of thumb for creating tags: think about what people would type into YouTube search in order for your video to show up.  So if you're video is about Salmon fishing in Lake Michigan, don't just use "salmon" or "fishing" for tags and call it a day.  Think about "long tail" keywords, in this case, "salmon fishing in lake Michigan", or "Michigan salmon fishing", or even "salmon fishing" as your tags.  So if you want people to actually see your YouTube videos, take the time to choose some good tags, thinking about what someone would actually type in the search bar. It'll make a world of difference.

More Views Equals More YouTube Money

Creators get paid for their content through YouTube's Partner Program, which allows them to monetize their videos and earn revenue from ads. Google AdSense is the primary source of income for most partners, as it pays out on a cost-per-click (CPC) basis. This means that when viewers watch your videos and click on the ads that show up, you get paid. In addition, YouTube may also pay out on a cost-per-view (CPV) basis if certain conditions are met. Additionally, creators can earn money through other sources such as getting brand sponsorships and product placements.

Finally, some creators opt to use their channels to promote their own products or services and offer exclusive deals to their subscribers. All in all, YouTube and Google offer creators a variety of ways to get paid for the content they create.
