I’m going to show you how you can see if
you’re ranking in YouTube search results
[Free Feature Friday]
YouTube is a search engine, the second largest
search engine behind its owner Google.
That’s why TubeBuddy has some amazing tools
to help you find opportunities to rank in
Ranking your videos in search results is just
another great way to help you earn more views
That’s why, we wanted to show you how you
can see if you’re ranking in YouTube search
results for free!
There are a few ways you can see if you’re
ranking on YouTube search.
The first way is on your video’s, video
edit page, under tags, this will automatically
show you if you’re ranking.
Another way is on the video watch page using
TubeBuddy’s videolytics, under the tag section,
and then click on “Show search rankings.”
This also works on other people’s videos,
so you can see where they are ranking too!
If we look back at our video, you’ll see
we’re ranking in search results.
If you’re ranking for a term like we are
for this video, you’ll see the green numbers
displayed NEXT TO the term you’re ranking
The green number shows where you rank within
YouTube search results, and with the TubeBuddy
mobile app you can also check with the same
green numbers where you’re ranking within
YouTube search results.
For this example, we’re ranking #1 for this
term on this TubeBuddy video, but we’re
not done yet!
Under the tags you’ll see this “X = Where
this video ranks in YouTube Search Results”
This is just letting you know what I explained
earlier, but the most important piece is right
When you first install TubeBuddy you’ll
see *Incognito mode results.
This basically lets you see what a new user,
who has never seen your channel before, would
see in search results.
We can’t stress this enough, but TubeBuddy’s
Incognito mode results are the BEST results,
and because you’re using Tubebuddy’s incognito
mode results, this may not line up with what
you see when you’re searching logged in
to your YouTube channel in YouTube search.
That’s because YouTube gives you personal
recommendations, and you want to see what
a new user sees when they search.
It’s important to have incognito results
to see this accurately so you have a better
idea of how you’re actually ranking, and
you won’t have to constantly check in an
incognito browser window.
If you don’t see a Green number, you’re
not ranking in search.
The only way to get these numbers is if you’re
Speaking of ranking, It’s important to note
that just showing up in search DOESN’T GUARANTEE
It’s up to the Title and Thumbnail to make
viewers click through and watch the video.
Our tools help you show in YouTube search
results, but it’s up to the content YOU
create to compel people to click on your videos
and earn views!
