Tromler Construction - A Sacramento General Contractor: January 2011

Crazy 12 Second Video Gets 2000 Views Without Effort!



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?
