What People Like to Watch on YouTube | YouTube Keywords Tool

Have you ever wonder what are the videos people are looking for on YouTube? Well, I am a YouTube user myself and most of the time I am looking for videos that I like such as photography, blogging, seo and more. Sometimes, I wonder why some videos are getting so many views while some videos of the same topics get way lesser views on YouTube.

Well, probably some of you might say "Those videos that get large number of views because the quality is good", "Those videos are funny", "Sexy girls in the video" and etc. Is that true? Well, some are quite true though. In this article, I am going to talk about how to use a keyword tool to check the number of searches on YouTube which will help you target high search volume keywords to get your videos listed in YouTube search result page. (This is just like doing Search Engine Optimization, the difference is that it is on Youtube.)


Then, I am on my quest to find out what videos and keywords are getting a lot of searches on YouTube and  I came across a tool which is known as YouTube Keywords Tool. This tool is quite similar to AdWords Keywords Tool which is used to check for keywords and the amount of monthly search on the keywords. 

What People Want to Watch On YouTube
YouTube can be considered as the search engines for videos on the Internet. It can be considered as the next big traffic source other than Google and other search engines. Some YouTube videos are getting more than 2 Billion views and the traffic is just a part of YouTube's monthly total traffic. Imagine you could get a piece of the traffic from YouTube, that would be an extremely large amount of visitors flooding your blog.

Maybe this is why everyone is trying so hard to get views on their YouTube videos hoping to channel some visitors from YouTube to their blogs/websites. Even getting a 0.001% of the YouTube traffic is more than enough for most webmasters.

2 Billion = 2,000,000,000 views
0.001% of 2 Billion = 200,000 views. 

Getting 200,000 visitors to your blog in one month, isn't that great? But, things are not as easy as it seems. Theoretically, it is workable but in actual, it is not easy to get 2 Billion views on our YouTube videos.

So, here is how to use the YouTube Keywords Tool. Key in the keywords you want to check, then click search. Make sure the language is "English". YouTube Keywords Tool work like AdWords Keywords tool. It will show relevant keywords based on your keywords and it shows you the number of monthly searches of the keywords you type in.

When you want to check the number of monthly searches of the keywords you choose, make sure you select the "Match Type" as "Exact" because this will make sure the result shown to you is the exact search of the keywords. I have circled it in the picture above, it is the place to change the "Match Type" to "Exact".

By using exact keywords matching, you can see the amount of monthly searches. So, if you want to name your YouTube videos, then name your videos based on the keywords that have high amount of searches. This ensure you target the audience and your videos have the exact keywords the audience are looking for. 

I am not saying that using YouTube Keywords Tool can ensure success to get 2 billion views on your YouTube videos. But this tools help you to get your videos to the first page of the YouTube search result which will result in more views.

Other criteria for more views on YouTube videos:
  • High quality videos
  • Videos with Good Contents
  • Funny, cute or  sexy videos
  • Videos of popular people
  • and more...
I noticed that most top videos on YouTube have at least one criteria of the above listed criteria. Why those criteria works well? It is because if people like your video (funny, sexy or cute, high quality videos or videos or popular superstar etc.) , they will happily share your videos on Facebook, Twitter or even email to their friends. Some even go to the extend to write blog posts about it. Words spread faster than lightning (I think it is faster than lightning or maybe speed of sound), when thousands of people start to talk about your videos, your videos become superstar on YouTube!

So, try to create videos based on the criteria above, I am sure your videos will get large amount of views from YouTube.
