YouTube is a community site for watching and sharing user made videos.

That’s because YouTube enables all members to easily upload and share video clips on their site and across the Internet through embedding these videos in websites, blogs, mobile devices and email.

Watching and sharing means YouTube, like many other social networks, serves multi purposes.

On the one hand you can get exposure for your videos, on the other hand you can watch what others think and look for popular topics and trends.
You can find plenty of topics at YouTube. Since it’s a Google company, their search capabilities are huge.

But today we’ll concentrate on generating traffic from YouTube.

In order to do that well and very efficiently, you’d better handle things right from the first time on. So here are 10 tips on how to get more traffic from YouTube.

  1. Make the videos viral, and spread them to as many websites as possible.
  2. Make sure the sound on your videos is clear and mixed and edited well so users can clearly hear it.
  3. Embed your logo and website into the video somehow. You can do this with text at the end or beginning, or by including your logo or URL throughout the entire video.
  4. Have goals for your YouTube videos, but remember that there are thousands of videos on the site, and some have millions of hits while others only have a couple hundred. Set realistic goals.
  5. Keep content funny, engaging, and informative so viewers will watch it from beginning to end
  6. Think about overall color schemes. Some videos may record in a yellow or red hue. This can affect viewer’s opinions subliminally, so try to keep the colors realistic.
  7. Be yourself. Do not lose sight of the purpose and mission of the video. Be yourself and loosen up when speaking.
  8. Remember that nothing is perfect in online videos unless you have a professional editor, so just have fun and keep the goal in mind.
  9. Practice before posting the final video. Do a few dry runs before taping and publishing.
  10. Create a series of ongoing videos or stories, so users will be hooked and want to learn more.
  11. Do more than just talk. People don’t want to sit and watch a person just talking to the camera. Make it exciting and interesting as well as fun.
