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.

Freeform Wednesday: Funny Indie Film Parody

Hilarious! Aren’t you tired of predictable, “feel good”, dramatic indie films? This trailer for “Not Another Sundance Movie” pokes fun at these goofy, sappy movies and their “wannabe” directors, yearning to bloom at Sundance.

My personal favorite quote from this one:
“Featuring a stirring performance by a young ethnic girl that’s guaranteed to be nominated for an Oscar, but not win, subsequently leading to her fall back into obscurity, hit rock bottom and show up on celebrity rehab after having a child at sixteen.”
