For this tip, you will be using my favorite tool, Keyword Finder. It shows you what keywords people are looking for in real time as well as suggestions for similar keywords you can use.
It also will show you how difficult it is for ranking videos on Youtube.
The lower the number the better!
Now you see why it's my favorite keyword research tool.
One important note is to look for keywords that are higher than 500 monthly search volumes.
And finally, you may find that there numerous keywords that have the same monthly search volume.
Prompting the question?
Which one should you use?
To figure this out head over to Google trends and type one into the search bar, then click the compare section marked with the plus sign and then simply observe which ones have the higher trend line.
*Important note: You want keywords with uptrends over 50*
Now we have the keyword for ranking videos on Youtube.

You can use up to 10.

Copy And Paste your tags (related keywords) in the comments and tags section.
Right click and go to properties to double check that all fields are filled.
