1. Use Good Descriptive Titles
Choose a good descriptive title for your video with good keywords. Use terms like “how to,” “why does,” etc.
When you blog about your video, make the blog title the same as the video title and make sure the title tag of your page matches the title of the blog post and video.
When ranking videos, Google primarily considers the match between search keywords and the video title. Google likes it when the title tag of the page matches the title of the video, and will give a higher weighting for results where this is the case.
2. Write a Good Description
Don’t just put a few words in the description of the video. Tell a story using your keywords. Add your whole site URL at the very top of the description, including the http://. This puts a link back to your site in the description. Transcribe the video.
