Will not give more details at this point as I do not want to ruin the surprise. Let’s start, shall we?


Why Is It Important to Get Ranked On First Page of YouTube?

Video is the future. I have said this often. It is the future of marketing. It was the big success story of 2016, and so far in 2017 it is still the star. And it will be for a long while.

Here we present what research has found out so far about video marketing:

  1. By 2019, video will account for 80% of all consumer Internet traffic (SmallBizTrends)
  2. 64% to 85% of consumers are likely to buy a product after watching a video about that product (Hubspot)
  3. 76% of businesses say that video provides good return on investment (wyzowl)
  4. 92 percent of mobile video viewers share videos with others (Source: RendrFx)
  5. More than 60% SMB owners and marketers plan to increase investment in video (animoto)

And why YouTube? Why is it important to get ranked on First Page of YouTube?

  1. YouTube has over a billion users, almost one-third of total internet users. (YouTube)
  2. More than 500 million hours of videos are watched on YouTube each day  (WordStream)
  3. 45% of people watch more than an hour of Facebook or YouTube videos a week. (WordStream)
  4. YouTube reports mobile video consumption rises 100% every year (Hubspot)

And that is just the tip of the iceberg. There are lots more data and statistics that prove video is now the media that people prefer to consume from the Internet.

And if that is the case, when you promote your business, your products and services using videos on YouTube, you gain higher online visibility. Also, the opportunity to convert viewers into customers.


Videos That I have Ranked On First Page of YouTube

I have ranked many videos on the First Page of YouTube. As I mentioned earlier, it will be too many to add to this article. And will result in a really long post, which I have heard from some people that they prefer shorter posts.

So here are some of the videos that I have Ranked on First Page of YouTube:

Keyword Phrase: Baby Bath Tub

Rank on YouTube: Number 3

This is an amazing achievement. For a generic keyword phrase like Baby Bath Tub, the video is ranked Number Three out of 4,050,000 videos!

You can imagine how competitive this generic keyword phrase is. Those selling Baby Bath Tubs should talk to me about doing Video SEO for them! (And not just them. Anyone selling anything online should talk to me about this.)

Additional note: This video is also ranking on First Page for many other keyword phrases like Outdoor Pond, Recycle Baby Bath Tub, and more.

Keyword Phrase: Things To Do In Changi Airport

Rank on YouTube: Number 6

This video used to rank higher. Over time, new videos took its place, and it is now steady at Number 6. It is also ranking on first page for other keyword phrases; such as Things To Do In Singapore Changi Airport.

It is fantastic when a video ranks for many different keyword phrases. This means people are finding the video with a healthy variety of keywords, and it is getting traffic from all the various keyword phrases.
