Hey there, how are you all?

Is your YouTube channel doing okay?

If yes, then it’s a piece of great news. But if No is your answer then you are in the right place. Today I am going answer the top question of every YouTube content creator, “how to make my youtube video popular?

There are a lot of ways you can do it. But the right direction is to do Youtube SEO on your videos. You may think that maybe tough work to do but take my word, it is easier than you thought. You just need to follow the tips to make your youtube video more popular which I will be mentioning later in this post.

Now let’s get in the reasons your YouTube videos aren’t popular:

Reason 01: Your video is not optimized for Youtube.

Every video needs to be optimized for youtube search results. If you are creating tons of video and uploading them on youtube, then expecting a million views. I am sorry. You are living in a dream. This works if you have tons of subscribers or fan base where your fans watch anything you uploads.

Optimizing includes these:

  • Right Keywords
  • Custom Thumbnails
  • Tags
  • Playlists
  • Channel Decoration

Reason 02: Your retention rate for the audience is low.

Do your viewers leave your video before the main part starts? Do they leave after a few seconds? Are you facing challenges to get watch time?

That means your retention rate for the audience is low. This could badly affect your channel.

YouTube favors those channels who can hold viewers for a longer time. Besides, you won’t get subscribers if your retention rate for the audience is low.

Reason 03: Your video doesn’t add any value.

This is a serious issue. If your video doesn’t add any values to your viewers than you will not get any outcome.

Ask yourself a question,

“Why anyone will watch your video?”

Answer that question, you will have tons of values in your videos for your viewers.

You have to provide some reasons for your viewers to like and share your videos and also subscribe to your channel.

Reason 04: You do not engage with your viewers.

Do you have your presence in your videos? I mean do you reply to the comments you have on your videos?

That’s the first rule of engagement with your viewers. But you can’t stop there. There are tons of related channels and forums which can drive traffics to your channel. Try to be active in your community. Provide them with related and useful knowledge.

Reason 05: You are lack of PATIENCE!!!!

Okay, this is the most popular problem. Maybe you just started last week and you are expecting a million views. Then YouTUbe is not for you. Go for TikTok, There you can have it.

YouTube is not for those who are lack patience. To be successful on YouTube you need to work hard. In Youtube, your growth rate is slow for the first couple of months. But after a few months when your channel on a pace you will see the real growth of how first your channel is growing.
