Make a Youtube Video Playlist

When you make a group of videos and upload them to Youtube, it is always a good idea to create a Youtube video playlist. This will make it easy for people to view one video and then move onto the next as they will be grouped together. For example I have a Youtube channel called Computer basics and I upload videos about computer tips. There are just under 300 videos on my channel and making a Youtube video playlist is the best way to group this many videos into sections.

Why create a Youtube video playlist?

Creating a Youtube video playlist definitely encourages more views on your videos. It will also help people find related videos from your Youtube channel instead of having to surf around Youtube and find it from other people.

A Youtube video playlist can also get you ranking in Youtube search results for different keywords. I have noticed that playlists show up before a single, lonely video will. That is just another great reason to create a Youtube Video Playlist.

    Hi Mitz, I started organizing my playlists recently too. I love how they bring more attention to our related videos rather than someone else’s. Thanks for the tips.

      Yes and don’t forget to put anotations in the videos too…these can be links to other Youtube videos.. I find that is like internal linking but in videos.
