About YouTube Tags

YouTube tags are critical metadata elements associated with videos on the platform. While not all videos feature tags, creators can enhance discoverability by including them during upload. The Tag Extractor tool efficiently retrieves these tags from any public video, providing valuable insights into competitors and top-performing content strategies. Understanding and leveraging these tags can significantly optimize video performance and audience reach.

Tags should not be confused with hashtags, which appear in the video description and above the video title on YouTube.

What are YouTube Tags?

YouTube features two distinct types of tags, which can sometimes lead to confusion.

  1. Tags: The "meta" tags associated with a video on YouTube are invisible tags that the Tag Extractor tool retrieves.
  2. HashTags: The visible tags shown above a video title on YouTube are known as hashtags. For more information about YouTube hashtags, please refer to additional resources.

Tags on YouTube are added during the video upload process and differ from hashtags in that they do not feature a pound (#) sign. They can include spaces to represent phrases and are typically recommended to be in lowercase with alphanumeric characters for optimal effectiveness.

A YouTube video can accommodate up to 500 characters of tags, allowing ample space for enhancing discoverability. For instance, the SEOptimer video example showcases 11 tags, utilizing only 164 characters of this limit, leaving room for additional tags to maximize visibility.

Now, the magic happens: With the YouTube Tag Extractor, revealing these hidden meta tags is as easy as clicking a button.

The extracted tags are presented in the exact order chosen by the author, providing valuable insights into (a) the most critical topics covered in the video and (b) the priority tags for optimizing video SEO.

Why are YouTube Tags important?

The YouTube Tag Extractor functions like magic on any public YouTube video, extracting the hidden meta tags while preserving the author's intended order of tags.

But why is this important? You're probably here because you're interested in Video SEO. According to YouTube, several signals influence a video's ranking on search result pages, including the title, description, hashtags, thumbnail, tags, video quality, and more.

We advise focusing on mastering the basics and leveraging all of YouTube's features to effectively categorize and add context to your videos. While the impact of hidden meta tags on search rankings may vary, it's prudent to optimize comprehensively by utilizing all available YouTube features. This approach ensures that YouTube better understands your video's content, increasing the likelihood of higher rankings in search results.

YouTube Tags strategy

When using this tool to extract tags from competitor videos on YouTube, there are two strategic scenarios to consider:

1. The video has no Tags: This situation is quite common because the Tags field is hidden behind the "Show More" link at the bottom of the video details page in YouTube Studio. Unless your competitors are knowledgeable about YouTube's nuances, they may overlook this and upload their videos without adding any tags. This presents an advantage for you because any tags you include in your video will likely enhance its visibility. Pay attention to the wording your competitors use in their video titles and descriptions, and check if they utilize hashtags in their video descriptions as well.

2. The video has Tags: As seen in the example from SEOptimer, where 11 tags were revealed on their video, the next step involves critically evaluating the quality of these tags. Look for any unexpected or unconventional aspects in both the tags themselves and their order. In SEOptimer's case, the tags start with their brand term "seoptimer," followed by broader category terms like "seo," and then extend to more specific terms such as "seo reporting." The sequence of these tags provides insight into how they prioritize their key terms. For direct competitors, it's advisable to use similar broad tags to maintain competitiveness, while also incorporating unique tags to target niche searches where you may hold a strategic advantage.

Tags on YouTube offer the flexibility to be edited even after publishing your videos. If you notice underperformance in search results or if competitors are surpassing you on certain keywords, consider revising your tags accordingly. Another important factor to consider when strategizing your tags is the guidance provided by YouTube directly above the tags input box.
