How to find YouTube Channel Keywords (and how to add them to your channel) – Video Transcript

How to find YouTube Channel Keywords is what this video is all about – so let’s get started.

The first thing you need to do is grab the free TubeBuddy browser extension, you get there by clicking the link I’ve put down in the description below this video, and it’s also in the pinned comment.

Once you’ve installed the extension, you’ll need to connect it to your YouTube account.

To do that, just click on the TubeBuddy button, and use your YouTube login to connect it.

Next, we’re going to find some channels that cover similar topics to us – and check out what channel keywords they’re using.

To show you how this is done, we’re going to be looking for channel keywords for the tiny house heroes project that I’ve been working on.

So up in your browser search bar, type in your main topic – which in this example is tiny house – and click search.

Because we’re looking for channels and not individual videos, click on the search filter button and change the type to β€˜channel’.

You can see that our search results are now a big listing of channels about tiny houses.

The next step is to open up each channel that looks interesting.

The way I do that is to duplicate my search results tab a few times, so that I can look at each different channel in its own window.

You’ll notice that now we have TubeBuddy installed we can see a heap of what they call β€˜channelytics’ – which includes the channel keywords that have been used for that particular channel. You do need to be a little bit careful with this, because each channel chooses its own channel keywords – so there’s no guarantee that the channel keywords are going to be any good. But if there’s a channel keyword that is a good description of the type of videos you’ve got on your channel – write it down.

As you go through the various channels, build yourself a list of keywords for your own channel.

When you’ve got your list of keywords, it’s time to add them to your own channel.

This is how you do it.

From anywhere in YouTube, click on your profile picture up in the top right corner of your screen, and go to your YouTube studio.

In YouTube studio, down the bottom of the channel menu, click on β€˜settings’

In the popup, select β€˜Channel’

On the basic info page, enter your channel keywords. Feel free to add any keywords that are relevant to your content.

When you’re done adding your channel keywords, make sure you save your settings.
