We have developed a process at Siege Media to achieve a first page ranking on YouTube search in less than a month. Using this process, we saw massive feedback in terms of views for our ranking video: Today I want to share this process with you and help you execute this strategy for your own videos. Because I think showing is always better than telling, I'll use a running example throughout this article to help you demonstrate the full process we used. For my running example, I'm going to borrow from a recent situation in
my life where I couldn't sync my Xbox One controller wirelessly to my Xbox One console. With 'Game of Thrones' in full swing, this was an unacceptable problem, as I needed to be able to keep up to date with Khaleesi and his dragons. Also, the search phrase jewelry photo editing service [how to sync xbox one controller] happens to present an opportunity to describe this process. Let's start! Leverage your popular pages Start by analyzing your popular pages that are already working in search. Although YouTube search is less competitive and complex than
Google search (and the two videos rank differently), you still need to rely on a solid SEO foundation. To propel your video to the top of YouTube search, you're going to need to leverage the SEO equity of an existing page. For our project, we used a page that was ranking well (bottom of the first page) but still had room for improvement. We wanted to find a page that had enough equity to give our new video a chance to rank, but could also benefit from the video and potentially see a ranking boost. Here are some other selection criteria from this page: The content on the page translates well to video.
