  7. ❌ No High Retention Views
  8. ❌ No Likes

Important Feedback on the Results

As you can see from the ranking results the video has performed some amazing jumps in the SERPs.

With huge jumps from not being in the top 100 for keywords to making it to position one is incredible.

But let’s discuss a few keywords which did not reach number one and let us give some constructive criticism on this:

  • Cleaning Business Start Up = Although business startups will want to know “how to grow their leads” then the intent of someone searching startup is more to do with tips to help them on everything which includes vehicle to buy, machinery to use, prices to charge, marketing strategies to accounting. The term is quite broad and for this reason, the video in time might drop a few positions for this keyword in the search results
  • Cleaning Company Sales = We was very surprised to see this focus keyphrase jump to position number two. The intent of “sales” is to learn sale techniques to win future work and although leads is a part of this growth we felt the search intent might not support our video enough. In time with future engagement this video might drop as might not meet the exact intent of the query so if this was the core focus we would recommend an additional booster package order or to create a dedicated video specifically focusing on sales and this as an exact match title tag
  • Cleaning Company Tips = Videos ranking with “tips” are offering tips on what machinery to use, what chemicals to use and how-to videos on cleaning specific areas. To rank for this term number one you need a clear focus video to match the intent and have this as the exact match title tag to get it to number one in Youtube Search
  • Cleaning Video Spokesperson = The jump from position 17 to position one is amazing. We were very happy to see this jump to #1 as the video matches this corpus very well and the competition was high so its nice to beat out the existing videos which were actually better optimised with this keyphrase as an exact match in other videos

The pricing plan used was the minimum Garlic Package so there is no hiding the fact that if we had carried out a higher package like Carrot, Pepper or Chilli the results would have been even greater.

The client could decide to place a second booster service and this would again bolster the results for some keywords (if it matches the search intent).
