However the Dailymotion site permits users to find videos on site by searching according to keyword, tags or channels and the site has a growing and committed following. You can boost traffic and engagement to your Dailymotion videos using similar tactics to those used for marketing YouTube videos. It is also important to remember that in order to increase the number of clicks you must first generate traffic. Traffic can then be converted to clicks, likes, shares and comments. To get more views follow the tips below.

High quality content

Regardless of the strategies you use, your videos must be high quality. Uploads should be funny or relevant or preferably both to attract clicks and hold onto viewers. One advantage of Dailymotion is the administrators are more lenient in terms copyright and of what video content is allowed. Dailymotion administrators are also less strict in terms of adult content which may allow scope for stimulating and eye-catching content.

Strong Titles

You need to use strong, interesting titles that inform your viewers and describe clearly what the video is about to get more views. It is important that the description is at least 300 words long to increase your ranking. Your title should be brief and to the point. Ideally titles should pique viewers’ curiosity without giving too much away. Provocative titles, which draw viewers in to find out more, known as clickbait, are effective if executed well.

Strong tags and keywords.

The video description should contain appropriate specific keywords to increase the traffic you receive through the site’s own search function. Interesting, popular and relevant tags are also important. Make use of all of the relevant keywords from your description and title in the tags section. The search system delivers results based on other users’ searches also making strong tags and keywords vital. This will drive more search traffic to your video from Dailymotion’s search function. More views will drive your video up the search rankings which in turn will help you achieve more views.

Embed your videos on your website or blob.

However you can exploit the SEO on your own website or blog to drive traffic to your video. You can also post the link directly onto your social media platforms.

Share the link on social media
