OurTube tags are words and phrases that describe your video and provide more context to help people find your content.

Your video’s title, thumbnail and description are the most important pieces of metadata for your video’s discovery. These main pieces of information help viewers decide which videos to watch. Tags can be useful if the content of your video is commonly misspelled. Otherwise, tags play a minimal role in your video’s discovery.

You can hover over a tag on a desktop/laptop and it will show you how many results would come back from that tag. A joiner maybe promoting a 'drill' and they add the tag 'power tools' and if someone clicks on a 'power tools' tag elsewhere on the platform, then the drill is likely to be displayed on the power tools results. Its a way of linking everything together so our search engines would become more knowledgeable.

You will notice at times when entering a tag it autocompletes for you, so that you can just select it, however if it is a new tag to the system you will need to input the tag and press enter after each one. Each time you add a new tag to our database it will remember it and autocomplete for the next entry of the same tag. Tags are useful for expanding the knowledge of the platforms search engine.

You can find the tags section whilst editing your video and naviagting to SEO and at the bottom you will the see the tag entry box. We suggest you take advantage of the SEO page to enhance search results.
