Write Tags with Google’s New Keyword Research Tool [Video News]

Last week Google shut down the keyword research tool most of us used, Google’s Keyword Suggestion Tool, and replaced it with a new Keyword Planner Tool in Adwords. It’s different than it’s predecessor and is missing some of the features we loved for determining what tags and metadata to use in our videos, but it also introduces some new helpful tools, as well. We’ll do a quick overview of the pros and cons of Google’s Keyword Planner Tools and show you how to determine a keyword’s search volume on Google when writing the metadata for your videos.

  1. Ahh, that's interesting. I don't have an answer for you on that one. Maybe search YouTube to see what other videos are doing that are similar in topic.

  2. I am somewhat confused about keywords with regard to my content. When I speak about political advocacy for medical cannabis policies, YouTube disables my monetization option for keywords or titles related to medical cannabis or medical marijuana. Although, my presentations are mature, respectful and without cannabis in view.

  3. Thanks. It seems to be working now. I have always had "Show annotations on videos" checked off. But for the first few days of the new setup every video I opened had annotations off. Glad to see YouTube fixed it.

  4. That's a great idea! A good tactic everyone should use before publishing their videos, or even before creating them, for that matter.

  5. They're partnered with YouTube networks that have those licensing deals worked out. A portion of their Adsense revenue often goes to the rights holders of those clips.

  6. For my tags, I type in a keyword on YouTube and Google, and whatever the top searches show up in the search bar are the tags I use, as long as they're relevant to my video.

  7. Tim, How does CinemaSins and RayWilliamJohnson use video clips in their vids? I can't imagine they get permission each time. Their videos are monetized… how does that work?

  8. I'm pretty sure it's a bug. Just another reason why it's important to have a connection with your audience outside of YouTube, too. That's why I have the free ebook highlighted at the end of every video. Viewers join my email list to get access to it and now I have another connection point with them, especially since not all my subscribers even check their subscriptions every week on YouTube, ya know? Now I have another chance to get my videos in front of them.

  9. Well, from what I can tell, it's a dating service that doesn't let you browse other people who might be a good fit for you. Weird.

  10. Yeah! You can track your channel stats by connecting it with Google Analytics. I did that video a few weeks ago here, actually. Maybe that'll help ya.

  11. Like the shirt! 🙂 Channel Pages = Dating Service. Thanks, Tim. You always read my mind and answer my questions the day after I have them. Love it! Keep up the great work.

  12. Oh, and I'm asking for $5,000 because that's approximately what my family needs to live on for a month. However, even $5,000 doesn't cover our expenses when you consider taxes, PayPal fees, and reward fulfillment, but it was a good even number, so I just went with it instead of asking for what we really need for me to devote the time necessary to make this ebook a reality, which is closer to $6,500.

  13. Good question. I tried to explain that in the campaign video and on the campaign page itself, but it basically comes down to needing a month or two to create this ebook. However, I can't devote my time to it and go without an income for my family during that time. Since I work for myself, I have to invest into projects that support my family. If this isn't one of them, then I'll have to continue to do client work for others instead of writing this. So I need support to make it happen.
