    Mr. Schmoyer,
    That was a great video and I've been a subscriber for some time now. I believe I may be implementing tags incorrectly on my videos so, two questions:
    (1) I usually enter the hashtag symbol at the beginning of each word (* "#tarot". "#howtoreadtarotcards'). Is this helping or hindering my efforts?
    (2) in the compound tags, I've been running the words together, as you can see in the example above. It feels like a dumb question, but should I separate the words instead?
    As always, any advice you could offer would be very appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Hey, Schmoyer!
    So I just recently posted a new video 3 days ago called HOW TO // 3 Vegan Blended Coffee Drinks.
    I looked up Blended Coffee in youtube's search engine and didn't find my video nor any other [NEW] videos. Not to mention all the video had Frappuccino in the title (which I didn't feel comfortable using since it's a trademarked word)

    When I filtered for videos in the last week, mine still didn't show on the first page even though some of the videos were 5 days old and only had 29 views to my 24 in 3 days.
    In my opinion, my thumbnail is far more styled, appealing, clean and consist than the others in this search.

    Also here is my meta description and meta tags:
    "
    <meta name="description" content="3 delicious vegan blended coffee drinks, more commonly known as Frappuccinos. I prefer soy milk but you can use any non-dairy milk for these coffee drinks. B…">

    <meta name="keywords" content="Frappuccino, Java Chip, Caramel, Caramel Mocha, Blended Coffee, Caffeine, Drinks, Toffee, Frappe, Fudge, Dark Chocolate, Coffee with Milk, vegan blended coffee">
    "
    Do you have any suggesting on what I need to change??

  11. Progressive Chiropractic Post author

    Tim, First off, thank you so much for all the great content you put out. You've helped me tremendously in my YouTube journey.

    My question is in regards to default tags. I am a Chiropractor, and more specifically a NUCCA Chiropractor. I've been putting out a video a day for 35 days in a row now, and plan to do 1/day for a year. I hope to improve these 1 minute or so clips as I go along.

    I have many words and terms that I would like to either rank for or be found for, that are commonplace in my practice and what I do, however some videos may not actually pertain to the default tags that I've set up. Because I'm not always talking about Chiropractic. For example I did a video on the importance of drinking plenty of water, but one of my default tags is "proper spinal healthcare" because that's the majority of what I do. So can I leave these in there when I do a health topic video but not a Chiropractic topic? Or will I get dinged by YouTube because it's not in that particular video. Sorry for the long post and thanks for the response if you get around to it!!

    Thanks so much again for all you do!!

    Love your videos as they are very informative 🙂 If we want to have YouTube treat an already posted video as a new video…give it a reset…can we just unpublish it for some time and if so, how long (assuming of course we will revamp the title, meta, tags etc before re-publishing)? Or, to reset the video with YouTube would it be better to delete the video and start all over. Our problem is we uploaded a large batch of videos at one time, but did not optimize them at the time. We did not know about the "new" video ranking / evaluation, so we missed that window for all of these now posted videos. Thanks so much for your time! Buying your book now!

    Hi! I've been watching your video for a while and have learned a ton. I've also been watching Derrel Eves as well. My first video was far from perfect but I had a great title and great tags. Incorporated a lot of your tips into my video. It's only one video but only got 24 views. Half were mine. I'm even using very searchable tags. I did a decent thumbnail. I did a ton of research for a better part of a year before I made my first upload. Please help me! I'm putting all this work. I know I have to be more consistent and have better video quality and a lot more stuff. I'm just surprised I didn't get more then 24 views
