Then follow this SEO tips.

 

How To Optimize For Youtube’s Algorithm

Youtube has a pretty sophisticated algorithm that ranks content. There are quite a few factors that will rank your content higher.

Firstly, uploading new videos constantly. More fresh videos equal to getting a much better rank.

Watch time is also important as YouTube considers, the more watchable videos, and surface them so that everyone can enjoy.

The optimization done in the first 48-72 hours after uploading your video is pretty important, as such it will determine the rank of your video and thus total views.

 

Metadata Is Important

3 Easy Steps to Create Awesome User-Generated Content

Coke once started a campaign called “Share a Coke campaign” man it worked wonders.

Here’s an example of how it has affected the Australians.

  • 3% increase in sales transactions
  • 4% increase in volume
  • 870% increase in Facebook traffic
  • 12,020,000 earned media impressions
  • 76k virtual coke cans shared
  • 378k extra coke cans printed at kiosks
  • 330 million impressions on Twitter
  • 170,000 tweets from 160,000 fans
  • 2 out of 5 Australians bought a Share a Coke pack

All of those selfies that were tagged with #ShareACoke is user-generated content (UGC).

 

What is User-Generated Content?

These are testimonials, pictures, blogs, vlogs, tweets etc., generated by the fan base and it’s totally unpaid. It’s more like free advertising for brands. And big companies like Coke and blackberry in 2009 completely exploited UGC for increasing their popularity. Well, it’s a good sign. It indicates that the brands are good and genuine.

Importance of User-Generated Content

User testimonials give others how good a product is and UGC is the same thing. On top of that, it’s free and companies do know to play their cards! It’s authentic.

It’s Cost Effective

It’s almost free and sometimes brands may use some celebrates to attract people but still, it’s really cost effective.

Your User-Generated Content Strategy Template

Now that we know what’s User-Generated Content. let’s create a User-Generated Content for yourself.

Follow these steps.

 

Step 1. Define Your Goals for This UGC Campaign

Here’s a way to define your goal.

What is the purpose of the campaign?

It can be used for:

  • Brand awareness
  • Product or feature launch/feedback
  • Promotion advertisement
  • Campaign promotions

How long will your campaign run?

Time is everything and if people know the period of campaign, they can join in it whenever they want and will do their best, since it’s the time they choose.

What type of content do you need?

It’s the same as knowing the time period but the only difference is that here they will create content.

You should also provide them with the following information as well.

  • Where are you using the content – social media, website, other advertising?
  • What’s your campaign theme – edgy, fun, wholesome, adventure?
  • What industry are you in, or does that even matter?

 

Step 2. Know What Your Audience Wants

In UGC people who create the content may not consume the products. That’s right people creating UGC are totally different from the people, who are the actual consumers.

UGC creators may not consume your products but they will improve your influence and will drag others to join your campaign.

There are two types of people in UGC.

Content creators and content consumers.

Content creators will create content but they do have their own ulterior motives.

But you can always motivate one by doing this.

  • Promotional discounts on products
  • Website feature
  • Social media shoutout (popular and free)
  • Surprise free gift

Content consumers

These are the opposite side of the same coin. As the name suggests they will only buy products instead of creating content.

 

Step 3. Logistics

It’s about time for you to create a plan that will get things moving.

Planning

Your planning will completely depend on the scale of your UGC campaign. Here are a few things that you should consider.

  • Number of shares
  • Number of submissions
  • Amount of reach

Remember, breaking your master plan into smaller goals will be more efficient.

Campaign Promotion

Even before the UGC begins you must grab the attention of content generators. Try to find people who are interested rather than skimming through all. Create a buzzword, and trend in the market. And you will have all the leads you need.

Campaign Communications

Take the promotions to the next level. Create a landing page consisting of the following information.

  • What you expect from your users to share
  • Clear call to action for submitting entries
  • Mode of submission
  • Submission deadline
  • Rules and guidelines for submission
  • Your contact details
  • Permissions and rights management policy
  • Prize information, judging criteria, and the judging panel
  • Frequently asked questions

Submissions

Now the boring, legal and the important stuff. If you are conducting a contest it’s better to have a separate submission page where there should be another page for normal submissions. It will be easy to sort by doing this.

Here’s the legal stuff.

  1. A brand creates a hashtag and asks followers to use the hashtag on their social media posts
  2. Followers begin using the hashtag, granting implied consent to the brand to use their images

Finally, you should make sure that you are following these as well.

  1. Ask for permission to use the image
  2. Direct the user to your terms of service
  3. Tell them how to agree to your terms of service
  4. Credit and thank them

This way you won’t get into trouble.

3 Trade-offs: That Every SEO Strategy Needs

SEO is one of the most important parts in a website design. The more SEO optimized your site the more revenue you will generate.

With that in mind, let’s talk about three primary strategic SEO and their trade-offs.

 

  1. Traffic vs. Relevance

An SEO strategy definitely needs relevance in the game plan. Because having traffic from users who don’t even have a clue what your website is about then it’s a complete waste. Except when you need more traffic.

Consider the following:

 

The Disadvantages of a High Traffic Approach

  • Keywords play a major role in getting high traffic regardless of their relevancy.
  • Less relevancy means more bounce rate. Which in turn, Will affect the companies with poor strategies.

 

Pros of a High Relevancy, Low Traffic Approach

  • Decreased bounce rates.
  • Less keywords are required.
  • Potential to get new targeted visitors, Who will buy products.
  • More relevant natural anchor text in your earned links.

 

The Disadvantages of a High Relevancy Approach

  • Implementing high relevance keywords search is pretty difficult and the same as getting high traffic.
  • High relevance doesn’t mean high revenue.
  • High relevancy strategies are difficult to scale, especially without loyal customers.
  • It can limit your brand’s capabilities as such you will be focused only on relevant products or searches.

 

  1. Consumer vs. Influencer

It’s pretty obvious that websites are meant to attract new consumers and every brand works towards that same goal of achieving revenue through their websites.
While influencers are people that will get you those consumers with their own methods.

Consider the following:

Pros of an Influencer, Industry Targeted Approach

  • Bloggers, vloggers, journalists, and others industries are most likely competing to get more audience. Since they own their authoritative sites. It’s pretty easy to implement SEO.
  • Sharing content on social networks will increase the total influence.
  • Influencer-focused content can be appealing for  B2B opportunities that you may not have considered.

 

Cons of the Influencer Approach

  • The functions and methods of influencers who can reach your audiences and the businesses are pretty much same for every industry.
  • Industry-focused content is not very effective.

 

Pros of a Consumer, Interest Focused Approach

  • Consumers will always feel happy when they find information about the products they are looking to buy and they might buy the same products.
  • Once they a product and are how about that, they will start trusting your brand and they might even become your new loyal customers.
  • Consumer-focused content usually has more overall traffic potential.

 

Cons of the Consumer Approach

  • Consumers will not have over control platforms that use followed links which can help your SEO and can rarely connect you to larger audiences of their own.
  • Consumer-focused content is not meant for influencing new consumers.

 

  1. Trending vs. Evergreen

Balancing the choice between making content that appeals to people’s desire for novelty and content that stands the test of time is pretty hard to make.

Let us see if we can balance these two.

 

Pros of Content About Trending Topics

  • Ongoing trends can give you a good idea about, which has the obvious SEO benefits in terms of earning links and revenue.
  • It doesn’t matter how you deal with a new trend, it may not affect how your competitors will deal with that, sometimes you may get the upper hand.

 

Cons of a Trending Approach

  • Be aware when choosing a trending topic. Make sure that no has published on the same.
  • Trending topics may produce traffic, but it’s unlikely that it will last longer.

 

Pros of Content About Evergreen Topics

  • This method will help you to gain more traffic whenever you publish a new article this will help you to do even bigger challenges in the future and you have the freedom to experiment new methods and testing a new way.
  • Evergreen content is designed to solve problems that will continue to exist, while will also help your products to last even more time than usual. the connection between evergreen content and sales is often more direct, even for topics relatively high up the sales funnel.

 

Cons of an Evergreen Approach

  • It can be difficult to earn attention from influencers for an evergreen topic without introducing some novel information. Acquiring this kind of information can be difficult because your competitors have already published those. It’s the survival of the fittest.
  • Evergreen content typically needs demands more resources, as it should be more comprehensive, in-depth, and well produced than content about trending topics.

 

Conclusion

Everyone has their own method of dealing with things is different.  Consider the above information as you develop your brand’s SEO strategy.

Section 6. Measuring Your Success

Finally, we are at the last stage of this plan. Sometimes our plans fall apart or our goals may not seem realistic enough. But must include these two things into your plan.

5 Easy Ways to Reduce Bounce Rate On Your Website

First things first, we are not talking about bounce rates of balls, we are talking about bounce rates of a website.

It’s pretty similar to window shopping that we all are very fond of. When a new customer visits a website for the first time looking for something he or she wants, But most of the times they won’t find what they are looking for and will close the website.

Don’t get me wrong here as the product/info they want is available on the website but the problem is that they weren’t able to navigate through the website to find what they want. Of course, the companies will lose money because of this. This happens very often. In an analysis by KissMetrics, it’s shown that the average bounce rate for a website is 40.5% and most of them are new visitors.

So if you own a website, we are pretty sure that you have experienced the same. Don’t worry here are five easy ways to decrease your bounce rate.

 

  1. Focus on Attracting the Right Audience

Keywords are very important in fact they will decide whether you are going to get any search in the first place. Given their importance people started to mess with keywords to optimize their website and that really affects others. For example, when you search for the word ‘one’ (as in numbers) you will get all sorts of musicals, blogs, etc., instead of the matter, you are looking for!

Basically, all you have to do is optimize the correct keyword that directly represents your business, so that people will know and find what they are looking for and will stop bouncing. (Most them at least)

 

  1. Reconsider Your Site Navigation

We all know bounces will happen when people couldn’t find or don’t know how to get to the content. Yes, Even if you have the best content in the entire website, your bounce rate will increase, if your website lacks proper navigation. It should be proper, simple, and appealing to the eye.

 

  1. Show Targeted Content to First Time Visitors

First time visitors tend to bounce more than the regular ones. It may be due to the fact that they don’t know what to do when entering your site. Show some demos or tutorials for them to understand First-time about your site and try to great them every time.

 

  1. Use Content Recommendations to Increase Engagement

We encounter content recommendations most of the time in the form of advertisements and other dialogues and for a good reason too. These recommendations help the companies to make more money by making people go through these recommendations and customers also enjoy these types of benefits.

 

  1. Be Mobile-Friendly

Lastly, be mobile friendly. In this modern era where more than 2 billion+ smartphones were being used, being a mobile-friendly website is a must. If your site is not optimized for mobile then your bounce rates will increase drastically. For instance, there are over a billion websites which are not optimized for smartphones and they suffer a lot of bounce rates.
