    I don't know why I never got into the whole video gaming on you tube thing. Lord knows I have played enough video games.

    Yeah for sure. I guess it is a question of finding those niche areas where fewer people are.

    That is pretty awesome that you got partnered. I can't say that I have put as much effort into Youtube as I probably should. Too many things on the go.

    You will become more popular if viewers will be able to see who is talking behind the screen. Unless it is a game commentary video.

    Audio, I have noticed that your audio quality is not that good, that's an important factor.

    Your tips might be good for an average YouTuber, but you need to know way more than that.

    For example. Real life videos are more popular than online, so if you only upload online videos, thereis a big chance that you won't get a lot of views or you will get way less views than uploading a real life video instead.

    Video quality, pretty straightforward.

    Keywords, mix them up, make sure they are relevant, imagine yourself looking for a video of the same kind.

    Description, make sure it describe everything, it works the same way as keywords as well.

    Title - don't make it too long, just go straight to the point.

    Partnership features - make sure to check them out, they are really cool to enhance your channel/videos.

    Best of luck!

    Sound quality is huge. I will turn off a video very quickly if it sounds terrible.

    Also, keywords in your description as well as in the title are important.

    Another tip is to search for a video that is similar to yours that come up number one. Copy their tags that they use. It will be more likely that you will be found after in related videos

    I agree with all your points. If you listen to my 2nd episode though in the first post of this thread the audio quality was MUCH better (right?). The first one was recorded on my cell-phone and thats why It was so bad. I apologize for that and My future episodes will be much better quality.

    Yes, the second one did have better quality. You could always run your audio through a filter to take out the highs and lows, but that creates extra work.

    The title of you video is important, but the tags and description are some lesser known factors that have a huge baring on your ranking.
