Tuesday Tips: How to use Youtube video tags effectively via ReelSEO

Tuesday Tips: How to use Youtube video tags effectively. Most people realize by now that since Youtube is owned by Google, posting videos to Youtube has obvious advantage in getting your content (whatever it is) to rank high in Google Search results. But just posting a video to youtube and hoping people will find it, and more importantly, WATCH it, is a losing proposition. With keywords tags, you are letting Google know what your video is about. Unless you only want to share a video via email to family and friends, and don’t care if anyone actually FINDS it through search on the Internet, intelligent use of tags is essential.

In this video, ReelSEO interviews Kevin Nalty, comedian and viral video expert, who delivers great insight into using video tags on Youtube. I found it to be quite helpful, hope you do as well.

Tuesday Tips: Tell the World Something Important – Darren Rowse

Today’s Tuesday Tips is a short, sweet family story from Darren Rowse of Problogger that helped me take a step back and think about the value of the moment and what I’d like to accomplish as a writer, and as a human. Plus, I like listening to his Aussie accent! Good stuff here:

4 Life Lessons Revealed Watching Top Chef

I love watching Top Chef. I enjoy the competition and watching chefs prepare foods that I can’t afford or never knew existed. This morning my husband and I were discussing last night’s show. I said to him we can all learn some lessons from watching it. He challenged me to write what they were.
