Keywords are important and this video will show why.
This is a short video of a job that I needed to send to the owner upon completion. I posted to YouTube to show the client, I expected a handful of views since it was not posted anywhere. Because I used some words that were being searched in YouTube, this video would appear as a suggested video.
Before I knew it the views were in the hundreds! I added some annotations to "ride this pony" and have gotten some extra mileage from it. The lesson learned? When making a video, posting a picture, or any other internet posting, pay attention to the words you use.



You have anyvideo tales to tell?

Wording is the key to being found.  But I wonder if you turn off folks that are looking for something else with misleading key words, though.

It is strange how we are discovered in searchs.

I hope you don't think that I suggested being misleading in the keywords Jeremy. I too get turned off by that. I'm just saying that my description of the video for the owner, happened to be a stong keyword search on YouTube.

Thanks to all for the comments!
