Tips for Naming YouTube Videos
Below is a summary of everything I've found online relating to making good titles for your YouTube videos. Note that this advice will also generally apply to other video sharing platforms like TikTok and Twitch.
Small improvements to your video titles can have an enormous impact on your channel's metrics. For example, if you start using better video titles and manage to increase your video's click through rate (CTR) from 4.7% to 5.5% then you'll boost your video views by 17%!
- According to Briggsby, it is generally better to keep your video titles to under 30 characters in length. You definitely want to avoid video titles that are over 50 characters long.
- Make sure your video's content is related to your video title and the thumbnail. Misleading thumbnails and titles will lead to downvotes and low watch time.
- You don't need to repeat any text in your thumbnail in the title itself. Use the thumbnail as an opportunity to add additional relevant text to your offering.
- Numbers can work well in titles. This also applies to blog posts, where the conventional wisdom is to use an odd number, or a 'strange' number (e.g. 37, 1081).
- Capitalize the first letter of each word (For Example Like This).
- Try putting one word in upper case to make your title more NOTICEABLE.
- Use Power Words in your title (e.g. Stop, Fun, Quick, Quickly). You can find a list of these here (scroll about half-way down the page). You can also check out our List of Power Words Most Commonly Used by YouTubers.
- Don't forget to use keywords in your video title. For example if you're making a mobile unboxing video then you'll almost certainly want to include the name of the phone and 'unboxing' in the title. Incidentally, if you already have a YouTube channel you can use our channel ideas generator to find some super hot keywords related to your channel's content.
- Viewers always like stories, so try and work these into your video titles. Stories that are relatable, interesting or intriguing will always get those subscribers clicking through to see what's going on in your life. Personally I always click on videos where there's an ANNOUNCEMENT being made, but this Power Word is immensely powerful and should be used very infrequently (unless you have a personal existential crisis every single week of the year!).
- Be willing to vary or break your own title rules. For example SSSniperWolf tends to just capitalise one or two key words in her titles, but sometimes she capitalises all of the title. In some videos she uses lower case words - especially at the end of the title.
