Why Are Video Titles Important?
Your YouTube video title is the first thing that people see when they search Google or YouTube for a video. While they may see the thumbnail image as well, the title will tell them exactly what the video is about. What you include in your video title could be the difference between people clicking on your video or clicking on a competitor of yours.
What Does a Good YouTube Video Title Have?
A great video title contains several components including keywords, power words, and the right length. You can check your titles for all of these components by using our Headline Analyzer. Each of the titles created from our video title generator above include a link to check it in the Headline Analyzer so you can refine it to be the best title possible.
Great video titles include the SEO keyword that you are trying to rank for. No matter what keyword research tool you use (we love KWFinder), you want to make sure that you find a keyword that both represents the topic of your YouTube channel and is relatively easy to rank for. Since YouTube is owned by Google, the ranking algorithms for YouTube are fairly similar to Google search.
Power words are a great way to grab users’ attention and increase conversion and clickthrough rates. Using more power words in your video titles will lead to better SEO performance. We have over 700 power words that you can choose from to include in your blog title.
Video Title Length
The best YouTube video titles are less 70 characters long. While YouTube will allow video titles to be up to 100 characters, most search engines will truncate your title after 70 characters.
How to Create Great YouTube Video Titles
While what makes a great YouTube title varies from category to category, there are four common themes that make great YouTube titles. Our generator above will generate titles following these guidelines, but you may need to tweak them to meet your needs.
1. Use SEO keywords in the video title
As mentioned above, YouTube search works very similar to Google search since it is owned by Google. YouTube video results rely heavily on SEO as a result so you want to make sure that your video title is written to incorporate key SEO ranking factors. For one, you want to include highly searched keywords with low competition. Additionally, you should make sure that it includes a hook. Read more about what makes a great SEO title here. You can also use our headline analyzer to see how you can improve the SEO potential of your video title.
2. Convey what the video is about
Your video title should clearly convey what your video is about. The title is really how customers will choose your video over your competition. A customer must know exactly what they are going to watch and the title must pique their interest. Clickbait titles will actually hurt you on YouTube since Google will likely realize the video has low viewability or short watch times and quickly bury your video in search results.
3. Keep your title short and to the point
As YouTube’s title length is limited to 100 characters, a clear and concise title will do your video wonders. You don’t need to include unnecessary information like episode number or your channel name in the title unless you have sufficient space. Save this for your description or let YouTube show your channel name when the user loads your video. Use our word counter to make sure that you stay under this limit.
4. Use emotional and powerful words in your title
Video titles that convey emotion tend to convert better. Emotional titles are those that include words or phrases that trigger certain emotions and feelings. Emotional words are compelling and influence people to take a certain action. When you use emotional words such as guaranteed, free, easy/simple, and more in your headlines, they entice readers to click on your article. It is often noticed that happy and positive emotional headlines drive more clicks and shares.
