There are special tips to help improve your search engine results for videos? I am growing my personal training business and I see improve my site's search results, but they are not the results for youtube exercise videos that I post.

When I do a search on "Personal trainer of Ottawa", there's a guy in town whose videos appear to cover the first several pages of results from Google video. I really don't know why his stuff is getting top ranking and mine aren't on the radar. I have no # of views, but many of my videos have views than his. I looked at the marks that it uses, and both use personal trainer of Ottawa. Despite using more video-marks that could be hurting me?

I don't know how many calls he has, but I think less than I do as I have more views.

Do you have some ideas?

I guess that he is focusing on publishing your videos on many other platforms in addition to youtube and has tons of backlinks to your videos. You may want to try deleting your videos in other services.

You must perform onpage optimization, it will not only improve the video itself, but also the channel where he uploaded to.Also tagging your video with your keywords is very important. A good tip about the tagging is to check the tags on the video competitors, and put some of these tags in your heart.

Personally, the video for me is more than a more visually appealing way to attract readers. Not every reader will want to be just read. Many will want to listen to music and many want to see the effects of moving. I think the video would help, but not much.

I have a good tip to check the tags of a competitors video, and place a couple of these tags in yours. Hope that will help.
