Save some time on You Tube – paste your tags from a Word document

 In Uncategorized

So let’s assume that you have got your video or videos produced and you are ready to start using them. Most people go to You Tube for hosting – it is quick, pretty easy and free so a good option. But you need to put a bit of effort into doing the background work – giving your film a searchable title, a description and tags that help to get it noticed. If you are looking to save time maybe you can double up and use a blog post about your video as the description. And a little trick that I stumbled across is that you can paste your tags straight from a Word document. That saves time and relieves the boredom and allows you to change the tags quickly and easily over time. All you need to do is type a list of tags into a Word document, separated by a comma and then copy the file and paste it into the tags box….. And for your next film you already have a good starting point for your You Tube tags. Do a bit of tweaking, add a few, remove a few, trial some others and away you go.


It’s a real help, especially if you are uploading a lot of videos but you will need to research the best tags to use for your own particular area of activity.
