 This week, I wanted to go over something that is relatively new and not everyone is aware of on YouTube and that is... #hashtags!

 Yes, finally Google has made hashtags available to use on YouTube which makes it much easier for people to discover your videos and your YouTube channel.

 

How to add YouTube hashtags

  Since hashtags are new on YouTube, you might first want to check out a post by Google giving an overview as well as their policies about using hashtags in videos...

Use Hashtags to Find Videos

 

 The process of adding hashtags to your videos is super easy and straightforward. For example, let's take a look at a video I posted a couple of weeks ago.

 

- first, go to the Creator Studio section of your YouTube account

 

- click on the edit button for the video you want to add hashtags to

 

- in the description section of your video (right under the title section) is where you'll add your hashtags

 

- the screenshot below shows an example of the hashtags I added to my video

 

YouTube video hashtags example

 

 

YouTube hashtags

 Once you've added the hashtags to your video, go to your YouTube channel, click on the video and you'll see your hashtags (i.e. #soundscape) will now be showing right under the video, just above the title. It's that easy and will make your videos much easier to find for people searching for that topic or hashtag.

marti garaughty music for YouTube videos

 Still on the topic of videos, as promised in my previous post...

 YouTube, music and the answer is YES! 

 Today I'm sharing the links where you can download 3 music tracks I'm releasing for use in videos on YouTube, Vimeo, etc...

  I'm releasing these tracks under a Creative Commons 3.0 Attribution License which basically means you can use my music in both personal and commercial videos for free as long as you list me in the credits somewhere below your video.

 

 The only attribution I ask from people who use my music in their videos is to add something in the text somewhere below the video like...

 

music by marti garaughty https://youtube.com/user/garaughty

 

 See John Henry's  post and video as an example...

Houses by John Henry, Music by Marti Garaughty: AR member collaboration

 

 The first 3 tracks I'm releasing are...

 

- Distant Atmospheres a soundscape from one of my own projects

- a 60 second orchestral soundtrack I did a few weeks ago and

- Minuet in G Minor, a piano tribute I did in March for the anniversary of Bach's birthday

 

  Here are the links to where you can download these tracks if you'd like to use them...

 

- Distant Atmospheres download

- Hyperion orchestral soundtrack download

- Bach's Minuet in G Minor download

 

 On that note, enjoy the music and if you use any of these tracks in your videos, please let us know so we can check out your creation! Later...

marti garaughty - Yeah! That would be nice! The reason why I like the DoubleTree is because they give you good cookies! Without cookies or some type of reward, it takes me back to my old Santa Clause days singing, I'm getting nothing for Christmas!

Hi Marti:

I just started using hashtags on YouTube - not sure where I read about them, maybe it was this article when first published - but thanks for the reminder to do so. I need to go back and fix older posts where I was not using them, along with other edits I should do.

Jeff

hi Jeff... most people still aren't aware of YouTube hashtags but they do help if we remember to use them ! Hope you're doing well considering how weird the world has become lately !

Hi marti garaughty - I am thinking of you on this 7th day of April and I am wishing you well. Music and the creative arts is a one of the best ways to shut out the noise of the world that isn't pleasant. I thank God some of the greatest people on earth used their artistic talents to make the world a little better to cope with, more fun to celebrate the many milestones we pass, and be instrumental in helping those in need stay calm and connected to their art. 

Thank you, Marti for being the bridge between the surreal world and the one that actually exists. I wish you peace, joy, and major accomplishments. I thank God for you and what you have sacrificed for the sake of members on ActiveRain.

Wow, you posted this 2.5 years ago and I finally stumbled across it.  I had no idea you had created such beautiful pieces!  I just subscribed to your YouTube channel and hope to hear a lot more.  Thank you for the tips on hashtags on YouTube as well. I will have to go back and add some to my some of my videos.
