  1. This guy makes the best education on YouTube training! Got my channel up and running! Tell me what you think!

  2. Very good video, and I love the tool

    However, I dont know what I'm doing wrong with my channel. it's like it's been shadow banned and not gaining views.

  3. 325 words 2,306 characters, too wordy? Yeah, since you mentioned the time stamps I started adding them, thanks. Sorry I have not been able to mod lately, soooooooo busy at work, I hope to be back soon.

  4. A lot of people don't write a description which us what I always check out before subscribung to someone. 😉

    Your end screns didn't show up.

  5. I see my competitors putting tags in their descriptions and getting loads of views, I know its against Youtube policies, so should i do that as well??

  6. just when i think, "they've done everything possible to talk about how to grow your channel on YT, there's nothing left!" you guys always come up with something I never thought of.

  7. Just saw your video description. For some reason, the timestamps in it are not clickable. What could be the reason for that? I am watching on Android. Would like to know some details about it.

  8. Completely irrelevant and haven't watched the vid yet but I have a desperate question. I'm pretty sure my upload from yesterday didnt send notis out to everyone and the views are really down. Most people are saying they got there from discord. Would u recommend privatising and re-uploading?

  9. Rob & VidIQ are amazing, after starting my own channel, it was coming across Rob and then VidIQ that helped me spend more time on the clips. Advice is amazing and VidIQ is a great service

  10. I do put a description in my video I just don't know if I'm doing it right to be seen. Thanks for this video it is right on time for me!!!!

  11. sir ,i joined vidiq but my videos is not getting views and subscriber,,,,,my video description, title and tags is already best…..what to do????

  12. Love VIDIQ. Help me get to where I am and I continue to grow despite only doing this a few months. Have a look yourselves guys 👍

  13. Nice 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥💋💋💋💋💋💋💋💋💋💋

  14. I am not spending any time for description apart from repeating the title with minor changes. From the testing that I have done, I concluded that a Title needs to have all the important keywords, and if it does, the description is kinda useless. I am not scared of 100 characters' titles, the audience won't see all of it before clicking, but YouTube will. As for Timestamps, I do it sometimes as a pinned comment (like Phil DeFranco does), but very rarely in the description. The reason is that most people don't read the description. 80% of my audience is on Mobile. I spend most of my time on Content selection (research), Thumbnail, Title, and finding ways to improve audience retention and engagement. Everything else IMO is counter-productive.

  15. May l ask about breaking a long video into several videos, l actually find that annoying on some videos l watch, is it recommended and if so, why? Is it because it generates more viewers or monetisation? Or could this jeopardise ones standing with current subscribers?
    I did the link click l didn’t want to effect your watch time. I selected approximately 3 paragraphs.
    Great idea with subscribe link l will do that after watching. 🌹

  16. Kind of interesting though, as I see some with nothing in the description and still catch a good amount of views. Sometimes maybe it’s about just catching fire as well, although I tend to use the description box with good detail.

  17. This is so helpful! I have a follow-up question. How do you feel about putting transcriptions of your video in the description? I've seen a few people do it and I believe the creators that have done this have gotten quite a few views. I'm not sure if it's necessary or helpful.

  18. I Use To Watch This well Got Some were slowly… But took my own action And now I'm doing better. The last time I watched one o there vids I was on 300 subscribers now almost 600 strong

  19. Thumbnail > Title > Description > Cards > Endscreen > Tags.
    This is the order of preference you should give for each element in your youtube video.

  20. 🕘Timestamps:

    0:10 – YouTube Descriptions – Introduction

    2:00 – Subscribe Link

    2:35 – The detail

    3:05 – Timestamp tutorial

    3:43 – Affiliate links

    4:30 – Upload Defaults

    6:45 – Hashtags

  21. About 300 words or 3000 characters for me. I reinforce the value of the video 2-3 times, add other videos to the description.

    Then I add any links mentioned in the video then any affiliate links and disclosures. Also my P.O.Box

    And my social handles.

    Things I’m going to add, my subscriber link , and a standard bio for myself.

    I may start using time stamps.

    I make heavy use of upload defaults actually.

  22. i see videos with barely any description getting mega views. IMO, i don't think it means much for search, but i still write something for my subs to read.

  23. I personally turn the description into a micro-blog, about 200 to 300 words, breaking down the video itself. I've found that Google search likes it this way as well.

  24. Thanks so much for this. I use the tool VIDIQ upload tool for all my vids and I am getting better slowly, this is helping my already niche channel get more subscribers daily. in 5 months ive gone from 24 to 11000 subscribers. Thank you

  25. Need to work more on description now, thank u so much vidiq for these amazing tutorial videos, thumbs up, stay blessed

  26. Can you make a video showing how to create affiliate links? just wondering about that when you mentioned it in the video.

    Great video and very informative. Thanks.

  27. Quick Question. We have over 100 videos posted. Does it make sense to go back and update the descriptions in old videos or should we just use the practices going forward?

  28. I'M BEGING you ,reply me and help me.

  29. Thank you for the video! Now I feel like I need to do a part 2 to my 2020 YouTube algorithm video! My video feels incomplete without a description!

  30. i really like this video should you guys come to my channel and watch when i pranked my brother and subscribe i will follow you back

  31. The weirdest thing just happened…

    I just uploaded a video, then I opened YouTube on my Xbox (which isn’t signed in) and my video was in recommended

  32. Thanks again boss, really helpful that you can stress out the important tips to every new YouTuber for free.

    I know lots about YouTube but each time I watch your new videos I always learn something new.

    Thanks alot for your video sir

  33. Thanks for these great tips! This information that you are is spot on. Keep up the good work! You are really helping my channel!

  34. I'm gonna start using time stamps to be able to add more keywords in my description. I am already doing most of what you talked about, but not timestamps. I'll try that. We should 5k before our 1 year mark. It's all bc of videos like this👍 keep up the good work Rob. You're doing awesome.

  35. I've been doing a good job, I think, with length, but had overlooked the fact that only the first 140 characters or such are shown when a video is searched. Looks like I'll be going back through this week and editing that. Thanks for the tip/reminder!

  36. Isn't putting timestamps a sure way to get less audience retention? Since they skip multiple parts of your video?

  38. Video just showed up in my suggested. Thanks so much for the helpful advice, because titles and descriptions are what I’ve been struggling with the most. Looks like I’ve got a lot of work to do. Oh one question, Will it hurt your videos if you keep changing your titles after your videos are published?
