So, the internet is all crazy about dogs, right? I mean, post a video of a dog and you’re, like, getting eight thousand YouTube comments a day. Or so I hear. Some of the YouTube videos I’ve posted are one of a contractor drilling in my front yard, a crappily-taken video of Lily Scott’s version of “Fixing A Hole,” and the Ukrop family announcing the sale of Ukrops to Ahold Company.
I’ve learned a lot about things called “keywords” lately. I posted these two videos of my dogs, but I named them “Jake and Bailey Playing,” and “Jake and Bailey Playing With The Circle Toy.” The deal with these “keywords” is that they are the words people use to search for stuff. So, if someone was looking for a dog playing with a toy, they wouldn’t know to type “Jake” or “Bailey” or “Circle Toy” into YouTube’s search field. That is why the videos have only been viewed 9 times, and that has all been by me.
I’m trying an experiment, and you can totally go down this road with me! Aren’t you so glad and excited that I’m willing to share my internet experiences with you guys? Aren’t you also so glad that I wait seven or eight years to jump on any new internet trend? OK, maybe not that long, but I am kind of a late bloomer. Or lazy. Maybe I’m just lazy.
I’ve “beefed up” the YouTube post. I changed the title to “Dogs Playing” and I put in a description. Granted, in the description I ramble on a bit about the fact that the dogs keep murdering squirrels, but I guess some description is better than no description, you know what I mean? I also added something called “Tags.” Tags are like keywords in that they make your post show up because it has those words associated with it.
**You do realize that I’m over-simplifying keywords and tags and stuff because you guys already know this and so do I because I work with an SEO Company, right? OK. Glad we got that cleared up.
I’ll keep you posted as to the progress. I’m assuming the amount of viewings my video receives from this site won’t skew the results so much, because traffic here is small, yet greatly appreciated. I know you can’t wait to see what happens!
So that you don’t feel totally cheated, here are some pictures of my dogs. My cute dogs. My funny dogs. My cute, funny dogs.
