Enhanced YouTube views help your videos show up higher in search results on Google’s second biggest platform. That can give your video more visibility and help you reach your goals for the video — whether that’s monetization, brand awareness or driving traffic to your website.
You can increase your YouTube video views by optimizing the video metadata (including title, description and tags). Start by identifying what words your audience searches for on YouTube when looking for videos on your topic. Use tools like Answer the Public and Keywords Everywhere to find relevant keywords that your audience is using. Then, make sure your title and description include those terms. Finally, make sure your video thumbnail is attractive and informative.
Another way to increase your YouTube video views is by encouraging viewers to share your videos. YouTube provides you with the option of including a call-to-action at the end of each video. Using a simple call-to-action like asking them to subscribe to your channel or visit your website is a great way to encourage viewers to share. But you can also get creative with your calls-to-action by adding a teaser or question that your audience can’t resist investigating. For example, MotorLane created a video called “How is a new car painted at the factory?” to drive viewer engagement.
Lastly, you can also increase your YouTube video views by making sure your videos are embedded on your site. YouTube counts the views of any video that is embedded on a page, even if the person watching the video hasn’t subscribed to your channel. So by enabling embedding on your site, you can encourage people who visit your site to watch your videos and add them to their playlists. Enhanced YouTube views
