Just how useful are comments for your videos? Besides showing viewers that your videos drive engagement, comments also add to the metadata for your videos, and can help improve how well you rank in search results!
What You Can Do:
Post a question in the comments section as soon as you post your video. This will not only generate more comments, but more importantly if done properly, can improve your ranking for targeted keywords.
For example, if you’re running a baking DIY channel, and your video is about your favourite summer desserts, you can ask the question “Which of these desserts are your favourites?” to your viewers, or “What is your favourite summer dessert?”. People then reply with comments relating to dessert content, which will improve the YouTube algorithm’s understanding of how this content relates to the topic.
This will add to your video’s ability to rank highly in related search results and improve your overall YouTube views! Also be sure to stay engaged on the comment boards and reply to viewers when they start getting active.
