- After that, write the whole description of the video. (Try to include man keywords here for which you want your videos to rank up, as it will help you in ranking your videos)
- Then put your all the online presence links including social media and blogs. Also, use the subscribe link for your youtube channel.
4. Use Tag Wisely
What I mean by using tag wisely is that try to include both keywords, long tail, and short tail keywords. Long-tail keywords help your videos to rank for that particular search you used in the keyword, while short-tail keywords help youtube to understand the category of your video.
5. Get into Suggested Videos List

Now the question is how to include your video in the suggested video list. To include your video in the suggested list after any particular one, use the same tags as your competitors.

8. Use End Screen For More Views

The video should be such that, one of them is the most popular video of your channel and the other video should be the next video that people would like to watch after the current video.
