Step 1 – Keyword Research.

The very first thing you need to do before you even record a video, if you want to truly dominate the YouTube search results, you must do keyword research and here is why.

There are millions of videos already on YouTube and there are millions of people watching videos daily on YouTube.

YOU want to MAKE SURE that there are going to be people actively searching for the videos you are going to produce.

This is not a guessing game.

If there is no one searching that means there is going to be no one watching.

When you find a keyword that people are searching for, you also want to make sure there are not thousands of other videos targeting the same keywords you are going to be targeting.

If this is all new to you, let me explain what a keyword is and how it works.

Keywords are the words or phrases people type into the search bar when they want to find more information or buy something.

When people type in a keyword or keyword phrase, the search engine will display thousands of results for the keyword they are searching for.

Let me demonstrate how I find highly targeted and profitable keywords.

This is what the columns mean in the picture below.

Avg is how many people are searching for that keyword per month.

Traffic is how much traffic we will get.

QSR is Quoted search result this means our competition. How many other video and blog we will competing with.

KQI is quality keyword indicator. Green is Good, Yellow is there is a slight chance and Red is stay away.

SEO is the score based on competition and traffic. 1-100 higher is better.
