Now there are some important points that you should keep in mind to beat the YouTube algorithm in 2021. Let us discuss these points one by one.
Try to follow your audience
As we discussed the gaol of YouTube algorithm, we came to know that youtube wants to keep people watching on youtube. Now it is a clue towards a question “what kind of videos should I create to get ranked?”. The answer to this question is as youtube tries to follow its audience. It is adopted according to the interests of its audience. Hence, if you also try to follow your audience and make videos or content according to their interests you will be able to beat the YouTube algorithm. YouTube algorithm will start supporting your channel.
Do not make conclusions in short time
Your channel may perform very well in some time period and not on other. There are a lot of possibilites happening. By this we mean if you are getting good results in some time and not other then there may be a lot of logical reasons for it. The audience may be on vacations or some other work and issues so you may face fluctuations. So do not make conclusions by just making few uplods.
Always try to experiment
As it is said that a clever person try to learn from his/her mistake and always try different ways to make things happen. Similarly, it is really good to experiment on your channel. Try to make and test different content ideas and strategies. May be you try ten or twenty different thing and one of those gets clicked for your. So no body knows what will work for him/her. All these things are known gradually through experimentation.
How YouTube search Works
As YouTube is a search engine so it aims to provide best possible results to its viewers. This happens to provide relevent content when the viewer tries to search for a specific query. No let suppose a viewer searches for a query by typing some search tearms. The fact is that on the main page only 10 or 12 videos are shown. But we know that on each topic there are millions of videos uploaded. Now how do YouTube rank these videos? How some videos appear on the top while others not. YouTube ranks a video for a query or keywords on the basis of the number of engagements that video has gotten for that query. Like view, likes, share etc. This is how youtube search works.
How to rank a video by beating YouTube Algorithm
To rank your videos on youtube search we need to use queries or keywords on whihc there is less competition. There are a lot of tools that helps in finding less competitive and more productive keywords. But after learning the way youtube search work, this is not enought to rank the videos just by working on keywords. We have to work on the engagements too. This means we have to create interesting content so that people like our videos, watch it completely, and share it. Finally subscribe to our channel.
To beat the YouTube algorithm one needs to focus on the audience interests. This is because the algorithm is mainly focused towards the viewers interests and tries to match the videos according the the searchers likes. More over to make the video rank on YouTube search, we need to focus on low competitive keywords and as well as number of engagemetns eg likes, views, shares etc.
