So, you want to know how to find YouTube keywords with low competition? Check out this video I made:
If you are an internet marketer, YouTube is an excellent way to get your message out there. But how do you know what topics to create videos about?
Of course, YouTube has a Trending section, so you can see what is currently popular:
But that shows you what people are most viewing and liking. It doesn’t actually show you what specific keywords to target with your videos.
A member of Wealthy Affiliate actually recently asked this question and got a bunch of replies. You see, this is one of the things I love about Wealthy Affiliate. If you have a question about anything relating to internet marketing, you can post your question and replies within a few minutes:
If I scroll down, Loes (who is always really helpful by the way), has posted a link to a free keyword tool. It is at keywordtool.io/youtube.
So let’s take a look…
Okay, so here I am on the keyword tool. Let’s try typing in “lose weight”…
Well, this is really annoying. Although it has come up with a list of keywords, it will only show the search and competition data if you pay for the pro version. I hate this kind of thing, where you find a tool that you think is free, but you end up having to pay to actually get the information.
So what can we do? Let’s have a look at some other options…
Here I am on the Wealthy Affiliate keyword tool. If I type in “lose weight” again, it will come up with a bunch of keyword suggestions:
Here you can see the search volume, and if you click “Competition” it will show you the Quoted Search Results in Google.
This shows how many sites use that exact phrase, so this gives you an idea of how much competition there is.
Unfortunately, this is still Google rather than YouTube, so what I would do is use this in combination with a little trick on Google.
What I’m going to do is type site colon youtube.com, then the keyword in quotes. So, for example, let’s try site:youtube.com “how to lose weight”.
As you can see, there are over a million videos with that phrase in them.
Let’s try a different one,
“wealthy affiliate review”:
That’s a lot better, having 2,650 competing videos.
But let’s try yet another one,
“opf kit review”.
Only 34 videos with that exact phrase in them.
Of course, instead of doing that search trick in Google, you can just type your keyword phrase in quotes directly into YouTube.com. If I do this, I get different numbers to searching in Google, but relatively speaking it still gives a good indication of the competition for each of those keywords.
So there you go. That’s my suggestion. Of course, this means you need to be a member of Wealthy Affiliate, but you can try it for free, and if you do decide to sign up for a premium account, you get a lot more than just the keyword tool. You also get website hosting, lots of great training on how to set up your website and start making money from it, and a really helpful community.
