How to choose best YouTube tags for your video?

YouTube Tags Inspector

Tags are descriptive keywords that help viewers find your videos on YouTube. When it comes to choosing tags for your video, YouTube recommends to use the words and phrases that make the most sense for your video.

That sounds great but isn’t very helpful.

YouTube experts agree that the easiest option to identify the best tags is to look up what keywords are used by the top-ranking videos in your niche. This will give you good ideas as to what tags should work for your video.

However, YouTube hides the tags, so unless you access to the account you won’t be able to look up the tags from somebody else’s video without a tool.

There are tools like vidIQ or TubeBuddy but they are not free, so we created a simple (and free) tool for you to quickly loop up the tags from any public video on YouTube.

3 suggestions to choose best YouTube tags

Here are 3 simple suggestions to help you choose the best tags for any YouTube video:

1. Start with your brand or channel keyword. If people tend to misspell your brand name, make sure you add all versions.

2. Add common and relevant tags from a couple of popular videos that directly compete with your video. Don’t add somebody else’s brand keywords, that’s just not cool.

3. Use our free YouTube tags generator for more keyword ideas.

We hope this helps!
