So you have a YouTube channel and want to get better rankings in videos on YouTube without sacrificing quality of footage, editing or production value. Fortunately, there is a simple solution: focus more on gaining viewers.

This means that the most important thing for ranking high on YouTube is getting views and subscribers.

Here are some ways to get more viewers:

  • Post consistently. This doesn't mean that you should post every day, but at least 1-2 times per week. It's also beneficial to follow up with new content shortly after you posted your last video, even if it is just a small update.

  • Give your viewers compelling reasons to subscribe to your channel (i.e., using annotations/annotations, end screens).

  • Promote yourself on other relevant channels. Think about collaborating with another creator whose viewers might also be interested in subscribing to your channel.

  • Make great content! Content is still king, even with social media. If your video falls flat, no one will come back for more.

  • Promote your video with paid ads. YouTube ads aren't as expensive as Facebook or Twitter, and they can really provide a boost to your viewership numbers.

  • If you struggle with getting views on your videos, try contacting platforms like They offer actionable advice for increasing the rankings of your videos and can even help you by providing backlinks.

  • If it doesn't work out, start something new! Remember that there are many different areas of interest on YouTube. Some topics are more popular than others, but you can always find your niche if you keep trying.

  • The best advice is to stay consistent, stay active and don't give up! It's possible for anyone to become a YouTube sensation, but you need to put in the work.
