Tag Junking Doesn’t Get You Video Views, Captain

Bullshit terms that don’t drive views

Dear video creator…  Somewhere on the web you found this collection of keywords, and someone convinced you that they’ll drive views. The good news is you’re not alone. It’s a batch that appears in many videos, and evidence that some “view genius” has promised you it will get you famous.

Give it up captain. Go read my dated but free “How to Become Popular on YouTube Without Any Talent,” and forget the tags.

Remember- Google no longer crawls metatags of websites, so I’m seriously doubting that tag junking is going to do much for you on YouTube… except for annoying creators who monitor their own usernames to see who’s hating on ’em this week…

  1. Tag junking is definitely silly! Researched, actually-related keywords will drive you views. I would not be doing well without researched keywords. And I would not research keywords if I had a life. Hence, I would not be doing well if I had a life.

  2. Google does not use the keywords meta tag in web ranking

    However, that doesn’t hold true for You Tube tagged video

    Have a website or blog, put the words You Tube and Google on every page

    Google says it hasn’t used meta tags for years, but it’s still crawling

    add your site, if you haven’t and take it for a test drive

  3. Hahaha! “why God did click on this filth!?!?”

    It seriously irritates me when people tag their videos with things obviously not at all related.

    Where did you get this crummy keyword list? There is a lot of repetition in it. (For example, “thehill88” appears at least 20 times)

  4. There’s an old trick site designers have been using that most people don’t even realize to help increase their relevance within site rankings for targeted keywords, and that’s place those keywords on the home page in the root of the site directory. If you can’t make those keywords fit anywhere in with the flow, make them plain text at the bottom of the page and make the letters the same color as the background of the page.
