Compose click worthy titles

Titles contain important information that help your audience find your video in search results. When writing your title, it’s important to remember:

  1. Your title should not be misleading.
  2. Keep your title concise so that important information doesn’t get cut off.
  3. Put the most important information towards the beginning of the tile and any show name or episode number at the end.
  4. Make sure your titles and thumbnails work together to tell a compelling story. 
  5. Make sure you’re including commonly searched for keywords in your title. For example: how to, tutorial, hacks, and haul are all popular search terms and can help bring traffic to your video.
