You have uploaded and optimized a video on Youtube and now it’s time to add gasoline to the fire and make sure that video is seen!

The goal is to get your video seen by as many people as possible which signals to Google and Youtube that your video is quality content,  and people will want to see it, thus these search engines will prioritize your video in results shown to people looking for the subject matter on which you are sharing.

THEN, when those search engines start prioritizing your video in search, your views will skyrocket! 

You want to complete the following steps within the first 24 hours because that’s the time period when the engagement tells Youtube how to position the video for future viewers- Youtube favors velocity!
