As a business, you could be creating the most helpful, visually stunning YouTube videos imaginable, but if your channel fails to communicate that value upfront through thoughtful branding, you’ll struggle to build an audience for those amazing videos. 

That’s where channel art — like YouTube thumbnails and banner images — and videos descriptions come into play. These channel elements provide you with visual real estate and SEO necessities to show off your brand and encourage watchers to consume your content over your competition.

When we search for videos, one of the first things that our eyes are drawn to is the title. That’s often what determines whether or not the viewer will click to watch your video, so the title should not only be compelling, but also clear and concise.

Although your keyword plays a big part in your video title, it also helps if the title closely matches what the viewer is searching for. Research conducted by Backlinko found that videos with an exact keyword match in the title have only a slight advantage over those that don’t. Here’s a linear representation of those findings:

First things first: According to Google, the official character limit for YouTube video descriptions is 1,000 characters. And while it’s okay to use all of that space, remember that your viewer most likely came here to watch a video, not to read an essay.

If you do choose to write a longer description, keep in mind that YouTube only displays the first two or three lines of text — that amounts to about 100 characters. After that point, viewers have to click “show more” to see the full description. That’s why we suggest front-loading the description with the most important information, like CTAs or crucial links.
