Editing YouTube Transcripts For SEO

Whenever you upload a video, YouTube automatically saves a transcript of any speech in your video. It basically detects the language that’s being spoken and then does its best to put whatever’s being said into text format.

youtube video transcript optimizationThe trouble is it’s done by robots and the transcripts are generally pretty rubbish and don’t make any sense!

For example, you might have said “this is a review about Product X” and YouTube’s transcript might say something like “missed a view about prod up Tex”…crazy right?!

The good news is you can edit the transcript to optimize your YouTube videos for the keywords you want.

The video above shows you how to do it…

You can settle with just correcting any mistakes by editing the transcript file…and maybe dropping your main keyword in as well a couple of times for good measure 😉

Or…if you want to take it a step further you can also optimize the actual transcript file by downloading the SRT file to your desktop, renaming it to include your main keyword and then re-uploading it to YouTube.

If you want to do this extra step and you’re not sure about how to go about it, just watch the video again to see how it’s done!
