The YouTube Annotations Video Revisited – Video Optimization Analysis

New addition to my "Recommends" list: Video Traffic Academy

On the recommendation of a friend, I took the opportunity to review James Wedmore's YouTube video traffic course.  After just one module, I found myself jonesin' to revisit some of my published videos in my own YouTube channel.

I wanted to apply some of the tactics James reminded me about when I analyzed some of the higher-traffic'd videos in my channel and see where it all came from and what keywords people used to find those videos.

In the video above, I focus specifically on revisiting the YouTube Annotations video I posted a while back.  I've all but forgotten about it.  So you can imagine my surprise when I saw that, as it turned out, it generated over 4,000 views so far.

But, I have to say, the better lesson for me was in comparing my optimization technique with those of other video producers.  (You'll see a bit of that in this video.)  I'll concede, there's more I could've done -- more I will do moving forward! -- to optimize videos I upload to YouTube so I can more effectively use the views I generate from YouTube for traffic to my other site(s).

Anyway, check out the video.  The path you'll see me reverse engineer will likely give you some ideas for optimizing your own videos.

Also, it's worth saying that what you see me trace in the video is just one of many techniques you'll learn in James' course.   It's a good program.

Obviously, I'm sold.  As a matter of fact, I bought James' course myself.  And, I'm now comfortable recommending it to you.  And, since you know that I only affiliate with, and recommend products and services that I've personally vetted, you can be sure that I'll be adding James' course to my Mel Recommends library.
