What is YouTube Keyword Research?

How to do keyword research for YouTube videos?

1. Find keywords with the YouTube autocomplete feature

If you look closely, you’ll notice that the suggestions cover both the main keywords (find YouTube keywords) as well as some nice long tail keywords like “how to find keywords for other youtube videos”. You can use them to optimize your existing videos or create dedicated videos on these topics.

Find the keywords your competitors are using

Another easy way to find what keywords to use in your videos is to find the keywords used by top-ranking videos and your competitor’s top videos.

The process is straightforward and these are the steps:

  1. Go to YouTube and search for the keywords you want to rank for

  3. Use the View Source tool to find the keywords associated with the video

Let’s see a real example of how this works. Assume that you want to create a video on “how to delete an Instagram account”

Go to YouTube and type “how to delete an Instagram account” in the search box.

Scroll down the results to go past the Ads and look at the videos on the top positions.

For each video, check the total number of views and the date it was published. Find the most popular video and click to go to the video page.

In our example, the first video with 419k views is a great candidate for further analysis.

On the video page, view the video, title and description. As you can see in the screenshot below, they are using their main keyword and several related keywords in both places.

To see which exact keywords they are targeting, right-click anywhere on the page and select VIEW PAGE SOURCE. This will show you the source code of the page.

Scroll to the top of the page and check the LINE WRAP checkbox and then press CTRL-F to search the page. Type “Keywords” in the search box and click Enter.

What you see in the keywords meta tag, is the actual keywords this video is targeting.
