Website/tool used: BetterWayToWeb Tag Generator For YouTube
as is 2015/11/5
lol for sure, a mix of everything
Surprise to me that a Chinese phase manages to slip into this list of popular tags, 高音質, 高=high, 音=audio, 質=quality, and the list is not a mess of everything, makes sense as it has a much smaller audience
Apart from the tag generating function, the other function is to look up the tags used in existing videos. With this I figured why I had hard time finding certain maikel's videos - the tags are not optimized. TL;DR at bottom.
eg Nightcore - Angel of Darkness, Maikel6311
the tags are
The song name 'Angel of Darkness' are separated into 3 tags, instead of sticking together as a single tag. IMO the most important tag, 'nightcore angel of darkness' <-all in one, is missing too. The result of the absents of these crucial tags are obvious, the video ranks below 4 other videos in search result of nightcore angel of darkness on YouTube, despite having much more views than the above two videos.
So what makes the above videos rank higher?
Angel of Darkness- Nightcore 10 hours, Tralfazz74
Despite having much less views, only one year old and less like ratio, it ranks higher. All for a simple 'angel of darkness' tag.
So the trick is, if the song is more than one word, tag the whole song name as one tag not separate tags. And add a tag of the nightcore plus the whole song name 'nightcore song name'.
