    What do you recommend to edit your video footage? The list of options are a bit overwhelming and I know everyone has their personal preferences, but do you have a recommendation?

    Sam, you've done it again! Such a great overview. Tell me, couldn't you also spot what kws bring up the Google video carousel with a regular keyword search in Ahrefs, click view all and the select the video SERP feature? That said, I have noticed kws show up in that report and upon googling, don't actually see any. How often do SERPs change to include or remove video features?

    A uniquely helpful lecture. Question: Do Google spiders or bots read "comments" posted under YouTube videos? If so, what if anything do they tell the YouTube publisher? If not, do you foresee Google spiders or bots ever being used for any purpose?

    I have had a youtube channel for a while, but started doing it 'seriously' just since a few weeks. Watching videos every day about how to optimize my content and channel. And even though I've seen many videos like this, actually learned some new stuff! For example, it didnt even cross my mind once to see if I can somehow promote my videos by writing answers on Quora; started doing that right away, and immediatly got some views of that in the last 10 minutes. So thanks, great video!

    I understand that more viewtime = a greater rating. But what can you do without much of an audience to start with? I’ve tried optimizing my title, tags, and discriptions… still other videos that don’t even have the same key words rank as more “relevant” and higher in rating. Help

    My channel is Lennek ttv

    This is on my phone, so I don’t have that account connected.

    Great video! I hear YouTube ranks on video length also. If you create short videos (e.g. <10 mins) but session time is high (i.e. you keep the viewer moving to your next video) do you think it's a problem? Do you think there is a threshold in minutes any video needs to be above, regardless of session time?

    tbh this is just the marketing video for your ahref tool and how to use it, instead of teaching mechanics of ranking videos on top, you went really fast to promote your product. not useful for beginners

    What do you do when your search terms don't show any recent videos? I am a CPR instructor and almost all of my search terms I use for Google don't show any recent videos in YouTube – most everything there is from 2-4 yrs ago. I want know if posting short videos on YouTube will help boost my presence and help drive traffic to my site & GMB page. One person I asked about this said doing 10 short videos on 10 different search terms for a given location every week will help with that. For example, search "CPR training Los Angeles" or even just "CPR training". Will that actually work assuming some of those videos rank? My goal is to expand my reach to local areas all over Los Angeles – What do you recommend?

    These tips are great but no one tells actual secret. There are obviously hidden secrets to rank videos. Because title, description and tags things really dont work.
