 Before starting, I ask you to carefully read this guide because you will find information that you will not find anywhere else. I also ask you to complete the article until the end!

 5 years ago, I was searching, like you, for the best ways to get the first results on YouTube... but unfortunately I was reading and applying without ensuring the quality of the information. In conclusion, I wasted 3 years without achieving what I aspired to! In fact, I was tired of the failed attempts, so I sat with myself and searched for the cause of the problem. In fact, I did not find a solution!

 One day, I asked myself: Do you think they are the best marketers in the world?

 The answer to this question was the reason my life changed 180 degrees!

 I don't want to tell you that you are lucky to be in this article and on this site. I do not know if a friend of yours shared this article with you or you visited us through search engines... Yes, you are lucky because you are on the right site that will summarize for you thousands of tried and failed methods and give you the correct methods on a plate. Of silver!

 In general, after searching for an answer to my question, I found the best marketers in the world...

Here's what I did:

1- I deleted all the information I owned

2- I searched for the best marketer in his field, for example “the best marketer in the field of SEO, in the field of affiliate marketing ...”

3- I followed their advice without listening to anyone else!

The best person I benefited from in the field of YouTube SEO was: Brian, founder of the “ Backlinko ”

website . After learning from the top marketers, here came the idea of ​​the Marketer’s website : to bring together the best marketers in all fields in order to share their experiences and help beginners . You should know that beginners have a greater probability of success than old marketers ... on one condition!

 What I ask of you is to filter the information you take in because it will make the difference in your success or failure! As a result, we have shared with you the best Arab marketers in order to follow them, benefit from their experience, and most importantly, obtain the correct information!

What is YouTube SEO ?

 YouTube SEO is optimizing your videos for YouTube so that they appear in YouTube search results. This depends on factors that must be present in your videos in order to rank well in search engines, and this is what we will learn about in this article.

What steps should I follow in order to be at the top of the search results?

Internal improvements

YouTube Keyword Research

Create videos that make visitors stay longer.

Promote your video

Raising the CTR ratio to the maximum degree

 If you master these six steps that we will mention in this article, you will be able to rank at the top of search results on YouTube and Google alike!

1- Internal improvements

 Yes, just as website SEO needs internal improvements (on-page SEO), even your YouTube channel needs internal improvements. 

 Important point: Internal optimizations for your YouTube channel are not necessary for YouTube SEO...

so why would I bother with this?

In conclusion, it is necessary for the Google search engine! How is that? Let me give you an example with our YouTube channel:

As you know, we recently launched a course about Amazon Affiliate on YouTube, where we explain everything you will need in order to achieve a respectable income through Amazon Affiliate!

YouTube SEO

As you can see, our “Playlist” ranks fourth on YouTube...

but let me show you its result on Google!

YouTube SEO

As you can see, we rank first in the Google search engine among all videos...

All of this is done through internal improvements.

Internal improvements consist of several stages, the most important of which are:

Title and photo “Miniature”


Description and “Tags”

Title [Title] and image “Miniature” :

You must know that the title and image are all that the visitor sees, whether on YouTube or Google, so you must pay maximum attention to that!

 As for the title, I prefer that your keyword be at the beginning of the title.

For example, instead of writing: The comprehensive course for profit from Amazon Affiliate. Write: Amazon Affiliate course, everything you need to make a profit. The more your keyword is at the beginning of the title, the easier it will be at the top of the search results, whether on Google or YouTube. Your title should also be interesting, “ See how I made $2000, the secret that everyone is hiding from you... ” All of this will help you in order to obtain a high “ CTR ” and therefore views. Higher, and this is what “Muhammad Kuifi” relies on in his videos, so you often see that his viewing rate is very high. In summary, the higher your CTR, the more signals are sent to YouTube and Google that your video should be at the top of the results. I talked about all of this in detail in the SEO course . It is true that the title is an important element, but the “Miniature” is sometimes more important, so you must prepare an interesting “Miniature” that will make the customer click on it from among thousands of results. What I suggest to you is to use “Miniature” in bright colors “such as green, orange, purple…” You can take a live example from the Shopify channel in Arabic !

Youtube Seo - YouTube SEO

As you can see, all of the channel’s “Miniature” are in green, and this helps it a lot in order to obtain a high “CTR” and thus high views, and as a result, search results appear on either YouTube or Google!

2- Backlink

 I know you are surprised... How can your backlink be an influential factor in order to top the search results on YouTube?

 In fact, backlinks are very important for Google, but not as important for YouTube...

 Well, what will the Baklik benefit us from?

 A good question. You should know that the #1 factor for YouTube is “CTR”, “Views” and “Watch time”, nothing more and nothing less, but in order to bring these things you need views, and in order to bring views you need targeted traffic that provides you with this. the conditions. In fact, we will use backlinks not only for YouTube, but to make our videos top the search results on Google...

Let me give you a practical example so you can understand!

 We all know our YouTube channel, it is not the marketer’s channel , but I am talking about the Shopify channel in Arabic...

 You should know that the Shopify Arabic channel does not rank at the top of any important word on YouTube, but the percentage of views it gets is very huge, and all of that is through the Google search engine! How is that? You know very well that Google has added a new feature to YouTube search results?

 So all I had to do was apply what we learned in website SEO to my YouTube videos...

 The example is as follows: In my YouTube channel, “Shopify in Arabic.” The most important word that brings me tens of thousands of views per month on our channel is the word “dropshipping.” If we go to YouTube, you will see that I am not at the top of the search results on YouTube. Yes, I am ranked fourth, unfortunately...

YouTube SEO

 But we are ranked #1 in Google Videos ??

Seo youtube

 How is that? Through the internal improvements I explained at the beginning and backlinks, which are the #1 factor in this! In fact, I mentioned everything related to SEO and internal improvements in this article , so I do not want to repeat the same words.

 In summary, the backlinks I mentioned in SEO 2024 are more than enough to make your videos top the search results on Google and Bing!

3-Description and “Tags”

 Now, here we have reached the final stage of internal improvements, which is the description and “Tags”...

 You should know, my friend, that the description is considered the #3 factor after the title and the image in attracting the customer’s interest and raising your “CTR”, and as we said, the higher the “CTR”. Your higher you climb the search results!

 You should also know that “Description” and “Tags” are considered #2 after the title in your presence on YouTube’s “Suggestion”…

How is that?

Perhaps one day you watched a video and then you went to the next video suggested to you by YouTube. Haven't you ever wondered how that is done?

 Yes, via: Title, Description and “Tags” and this is what I will share with you!

YouTube SEO:

  As we mentioned, the description is considered an important factor in ranking at the top of search results on YouTube, and it is also considered the #2 factor in your appearance in “Suggestion”.

 What I want you to focus on in the description is to talk about the video content without going deeper, so that you excite the visitor and add semantic words at the same time.

 As everyone knows, YouTube and Google have begun to use artificial intelligence in a sufficient manner. However, there are some people who still randomly place keywords in the description. For example, you see that the video talks about making money from the Internet or e-marketing , and you find it in the description putting words that have nothing to do with the content of the video. Just because those words are highly searched...

This is a grave mistake, as once you do this, you are telling YouTube that your video talks about many different topics, and this is what leads to YouTube not understanding you, thus leaving you in low positions.

You should also focus on the first three paragraphs of the video because they will be the paragraphs that will be read! 

YouTube SEO: Ranked #1 on YouTube in 2019

As you can see in the picture, the first paragraph is all that appears to the customer, and this makes him think, “Click” or “Don’t click.”

 Do not forget that YouTube itself stated the necessity of using semantic words in the first paragraph of the video! The same goes for “Tags.” You must focus on the words you target that are related to your videos and nothing else! We also advise you to use “ vidIQ ”, which is a “Chrome Extension” that makes you aware of the words that your potential customers are searching for! It also gives you the SEO rate of your YouTube videos and also suggests you the errors and how to fix them so that you can rank at the top of the search results.

2- YouTube Keyword Research – Semantic words

 The first thing we always do in the field of SEO is “Keyword Research” or searching for the search rate. It is not reasonable to waste effort and time on keywords that have 5 searches per month, so “Keyword Research” is an important process.

What you should focus on in “Keyword Research” is “Cpc” and search rate.

What we mean by “ CPC ” is the price that the advertiser pays for those words. For example, in the real estate field, it may reach $100 for each click, so it is preferable to focus first on “CPC” before focusing on the search rate.

 As for the search rate , it means the number of people searching for that word per month. For example, the word “Dog” has a search rate of more than 4 million.

Therefore, you should try to search for a keyword that has a high “CPC” and a very high search rate, as this will make you a fortune.

 Well how will I get that information?

 In fact, there are many tools that help you with this, but I personally use three tools:


 Keyword Planner

 What I personally prefer among these tools is “”, but you can use “UberSuggest” as it is more than sufficient.

 In general, these tools are very simple and will not need any explanation. The only thing I want you to focus on is “CPC” and search rate (Volume).

 There is also a simple way to do “Keyword Research” in a simple way, which is by downloading this add-on in Google Chrome: Keywords Everywhere.

 After downloading and installing this add-on, go to YouTube and write the keywords you want to post a video about. It will appear to you like this:

Youtube Seo - YouTube SEO

 As you can see, this add-on shows you the search rate with “CPC”. In this way, you will be able to find ideas and micro-niches that you have not thought of before.

 You can also use these words in the description and “Tags”.

3- Create videos that make the visitor stay longer.

So now you have all the information you need to be able to top the search results...


Not everyone will be at the top of YouTube search engines. Google does not want its engine to be limited to SEO owners only, so it has added a new update that seeks to provide better content to YouTube visitors.

 YouTube update says:

YouTube SEO

 After this update, many terms appeared in the field of YouTube SEO, the most important of which is: Audience Retention .

 What we mean by “Audience Retention” is the rate at which you retain the visitor while watching your videos.

 In conclusion, if the visitor exits your video as soon as he enters, then all the strategies I have explained to you so far will not benefit you at all!

 Therefore, we always say that content is the king , but all the SEO strategies we explained are just a push that helps the king (the content that you provide).

 Visitor length of stay is now considered the #1 factor for your climb in search results.

Well, how do I make the visitor stay longer?

In fact, I wish I had a strategy to share with you in order to make the customer stay longer, but that varies from one field to another.

 In general, the strategy we use, which enables us to make the client watch 60% of the video, is through the introduction method.

 If you watch us on our YouTube channel, we always try to mention the things that you will get when you finish this video, for example: “ In this video, you will be able to master YouTube SEO .”

 What we are trying to do with this action is to give the viewer a strong incentive to finish the entire video . However, we do not exceed 60% of viewership, so our strategy is not strong.

 On the other hand, there are some methods that you can use and in most cases they do not work. For example, you find a video that shares the best places for the year 2020, and then it tells you that place #2 will shock you...

 In this way, the viewer stays longer to see place #2, which was mentioned at the beginning of the video.

 In summary, in order to be able to preserve the scenes, try to at least have a good microphone with a video quality of no less than “HD”.

 It is not reasonable that the viewer will endure a sound that is not heard for 5 minutes, but will flee in the first seconds?

4- Promote your video

You should know that YouTube SEO is almost the same principle as Google SEO .


 The only difference I consider is the duration of the effect.

 How is that?

 When you apply the SEO steps “write great content, get backlinks...” it makes sense to be at the top of the search results...

 But the problem that everyone suffers from with Google is the duration of the effect...

 According to a study conducted by Neil Patel, he found that despite doing all the necessary strategies and everything that Google likes, the results do not appear until after 6 months... and this is what makes everyone stay away from SEO.

 The nice thing about YouTube SEO is that the results appear after 24 hours!

 Therefore, if you are able to lead the results in the first 24 hours, you will lead the results forever!

 What I want you to do after you release the video is send it to everyone (your mailing list, your social media followers, send it to your Messenger subscribers ...).

 Why not do ads for your video! Also, in order to be able to top the search results in the first hours, you must have great interaction!


 Therefore, always try to ask your followers to comment, like, share and subscribe to the channel because this sends signals to YouTube that the video is very important and it should put it at the top of the rankings.

 To get visitors to post a comment, the best way I found is to ask a question at the end of the video...

 Mostly, the question is simple: Which method do you prefer, affiliate or drop shipping? Post your answer in the comments.

 But after searching, I found a channel that exceeded all my expectations: ERB

If there is a secret behind the interaction this channel gets, it is this sentence: Who Won?! Who's Next? You Decide

 As you can see, at the end of the video, viewers are asked to tell them their opinions and what topic they will address in the next video.

 This way they get interaction and at the same time make the viewer part of the channel...

 In summary: Focus on promoting your video for 24 hours, as it will govern the video for life.

5- Raising the CTR ratio to the maximum degree

 It is true that we mentioned this point at the beginning of the article...

 “CTR” is considered an important factor in the field of SEO...

 even in YouTube SEO?

 Yes, even on YouTube, “ CTR ” is an important factor.

 As we mentioned in this article , “CTR” is:

YouTube SEO

For example, if you get 2 clicks for 250 page views, the ad unit CTR is 0.8% and how to calculate it: 2/250=0.008.

The concept of “CTR” is not important, but what is more important is to understand it and try to maximize it.

For example, let's say that there is a person who searches for the word “”” he will find many videos...

But what if he pressed result #3 instead of clicking on result #1?

It will tell YouTube that score #3 is better than score #1, so YouTube will shift your video from #3 to #1.

YouTube SEO

 In this article, I mentioned many ways to improve your CTR. You can read them here: What is CTR and how do I raise it in order to increase profits? 

 In general, the higher your “CTR” percentage, the more views you will get, and you must convert these views from regular views to interactive visitors who subscribe to your channel and why not become your customers after that!

 In conclusion, if you apply what I explained to you in this article along with what was mentioned in  our SPY course , you will make a fortune in a short time!

 In conclusion, I hope you liked this article and helped you, even if just a little. And do not forget that everything is God willing!
