  • Long tail keywords are less competitive, instead of "how to clean a pool", go for "how to clean a pool in the winter".
  • Use the thumbnail as an extension of your title.
    Don't repeat the words of the title in the thumbnail.
  • Don't use ALL CAPS.
    Some viewers think that you shout at them.
  • A good YouTube title communicates value
    For example a result, outcome or transformation.
