How to choose best YouTube tags for your video?

YouTube Tags Inspector Extractor

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 way to find the best tags is to check what keywords are used by the top-ranking videos in your niche. This will give you some good ideas as to what tags should work for your video.

However, YouTube now hides the tags, so unless you have access to the account you won’t be able to see the tags attached to 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) YouTube tag finder tool for you to quickly extract the tags from any public video on YouTube.

You can simply copy and paste the tags to your video or you can edit the tags to include some specific keywords.

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!

    • Support on October 22, 2021

      Thank you for getting in touch!
      The tag inspector lets you check the tags / keywords used by popular YouTube videos. This tool was designed specifically for videos, however, we suppose you could use it for web posts to get keyword ideas for certain topics. Assuming your post shares the same topic.
      Hope this helps!
