Be sure to properly fill out your channel description information including having your website being included.
When editing and creating your video, there are a few things to remember as well. Starting with your title, be sure to optimize your title for the search engines by including keyword phrases in the title. You may also want to include the word “video” in your title because people do search using video in their search. While editing your video description be sure to include keywords in your description and a nice short explanation of the video. The most imp0rtant thing you want to include in your description is a link to your website. When adding a link be sure to include http:// so that the link physically gets created. So example might be: “If you have questions about …. be sure to visit http://www.(yourdomainname).com”
