I pay a lot of attention to search engine optimization (SEO) and the things I need to do to stay on that first page of Google. Yep, that’s right! When people search for my expertise as a personal productivity expert, I’m solidly on that coveted first page, often taking the top spot…and I didn’t spend one red cent to get there.
YouTube is the second largest search engine, so it gets a lot of my attention too. I’ve had a YouTube channel for years, and am working to take it to another level. You’ll find several articles on this blog about that, and I’ve written a 24-page booklet, Create, Build, and Manage a YouTube Channel Made Easy, that walks you through everything step by step.
This tip is on how you can add a video comment to a YouTube video, either by choosing one from your channel, clicking to create one with a Webcam, or by uploading one from somewhere else.
Leave a Video Comment
I started to record a video to demonstrate this, but it’s just too easy to make it worthwhile.
If you’re on the channel page, click View comments, related videos, and more at the end of the video’s description box, then click inside the Comments box under the video. (On the other hand, if you’re on regular YouTube (outside of the channel), you’ll simply click inside the Comments box under the video.) Then proceed as follows.
- Click the link that has appeared, Create video response.
- Click the Upload a Video tab, then click Start (if you have videos on your channel you want to add, click Choose a Video).
- Click Upload video (or click to record one with your Webcam).
If you haven’t started using video to promote what you know, now is a great time to start. Turn off the TV and get this going!
