    If your videos are not ranking well then you will struggle to gain traffic. You would need to get your videos ranked high. This will provide you with lots of views and a healthy source of traffic.


    You could search for related videos that are getting a lot of views and if the owner doesn't use his description for his own links ask him/her if they would be willing to share your link.

    Ranking videos is the hard part, especially in a natural way, the only way ive ever managed to rank a YouTube video that didn't do well on its own accord was to pay for high retention YouTube views, likes, comments. Im not sure if such a service exists on this forum as im new here.

    It depends what niche you are in, if its a very competitive niche then its tough to rank high.

    First, you need to offer top quality content that is worth sharing. When people share your content they create organic backlinks and bring in more traffic which will make the video go viral.

    In the video also mention that people should visit your site and give them the URL or simply tell them to find it in the description if you have your link there. Don't leave people guessing always tell them what they should do (call to action).

    Send youtube viewers to a freebie/giveaway, that way it will be easier to get them to click on your link and visit your website. Also have a watermark with your website with URL and a very short description in the beginning and end or throughout the whole video.

    Another thing that works is to keep adding new videos, some will bring traffic while some won't but the more you have the better. Also make sure your SEO is on point, both on-page and off-page SEO then you should be able to get some traffic to your site from youtube.

    To rank your videos, make sure you create backlinks for them and have your keyword in the metadata.

    Hope that helps.

    I am a newbie in video marketing and I recently made a video tutorial using Camtasia. Do you use Camtasia? If yes, then can you tell me the process to add watermarks? If not, then what software do you use for video edit? I am really looking for it. I didn't upload my video yet to Youtube...

    You can create a PNG file (watermark) and import into Camtasia, make it as a standard alone layer and rung till the end of video, also always keep it on the top of all layers.

    Yes I use camtasia, and you simply create a transparent image (PNG file just like mysterrio has already mentioned above) and import it to your camtasia project.

    The more interesting your video and it could attract more visitors. In the description box provide information regarding the content of your video and also provide a link. Also in the video at the end of it provide your website address and means to contact you . This is a sure method to bring in more traffic to your website.

    The best way to attract viewers is by passing your videos on different sites.

    I would recommend you to promote your video with the use of proper title and description in various video submission websites. This will help to gain more traffic. The use of proper tags will help to get top to the search result and you will gain more views for your video. Alternatively a description with your website address will help to redirect traffic to your domain.

    Transcribing your videos and uploading those transcriptions also helps. When you post your video, make sure you mention your social media accounts, too. You should also invite people to subscribe to your channel and to each video. Start some discussions, ask question, because people love to engage and that is another way to increase your traffic.

    There are millions billions of users on youtube and everybody wants that their search should be fully informative and useful with their relevant topics, so if your vedio is fully informative according to the users then automatically your website traffic increased.

    Did you identify that YouTube is the second prime search engine after Google? As a Google creation, YouTube has climbed to the top with over 4 billion videos being viewed every single day and a amazing 60 hours of video getting uploaded every minute. Uploading and marketing your videos on YouTube can help give your content visibility in both YouTube and Google search.
