Should we use tags on YouTube ?
➡️ No (99%), but a tiny bit yes (1%). Let me explain.

 

By tags YouTube can understand your video’s topic and associate it with similar content.

It is not the case that tags are completely useless. But its relevancy is substantially decreased over the years because of semantic search.

Tags are not important anymore but they can help a little bit because they can give rise to algorithm little bit if needed.

Title, description and thumbnail are more important for relevancy and search.

 

If you start a new channel and YouTube has absolutely no idea what the channel is about then you should definitely use tags. By doing this , it can help you little bit.

 

I would say that tags are becoming less and less relevant as time goes by. And it will be remove entirely from YouTube in the upcoming years.

And at the end , if you still have doubt regarding usefulness of tags -- I suggest you test it once by yourself.

 

✓✓✓ FOCUS ON TITLE , THUMBNAIL AND DESCRIPTION.

However you can also use tags if you want to.

 

✓ Note :- The difference between YouTube hashtags and YouTube tags .

• YouTube hashtags are :- #algorithm #cooldude

• YouTube tags are :- algorithm , cool dude

Indeed that's awesome information even i couldn't write it in this much details, Awesome job

THANKYOU !!! THANKYOU !!! 

😊You deserve it

Tho you can find alot of articles about this particular topic but mostly they are about why you should use tags, But do they actually have any importance , Let's find out

Tags do help you sometime but not all the time you can however search for keywords related to your videos and use some oftenly searched tags but i have seen many peoples not doing it and they still get alot of views even though they just started 

So adding tags in you video is not that important what matter is your content if your content is good and is worth watching then you will get some attention even without tags 

I have alot of experience when it comes to youtube and stuff cause i had almost 12 of my channel removed just for trying to learn youtube algorithm, and what i found is tags are'nt important, whats important is your CONTENT

 

Thanks for reading , Like it if you found it helpful

But I saw many beginners are using the tags in their videos, this means that they are not getting any better things from the tags? 

Indeed they might be getting only 1 to 2 percent of the views from tags at most

When a video get viral it doesn't happen through tags it happens through suggestions 

OK I got your point, that is the reason many beginners are failing because they can't create a good and quality content, and they can't wait for a long time and wait for their success to come. 

ohh yeah beginners don't have patience, they just think they're gonna get successful overnight

Tags are more useful for new channels and also it helps youtube to understand about the video. I suggest you to dont leave it empty.

There are different perspectives for different people. Its upto you.

Anyway they might be helpful to your videos, even a little. 

yes they can be a little helpful in the beginning but vitality doesn't happen because of tags

Maybe for beginners who are trying to capture an audience, every small things like that of tags, keyword etc is so important. I guess that only applies to those who have established millions of  followers and subscribers. 😀 

Yes, tags are important for a new channel. For an well established channel, they are not mandatory.

Yup surely

Tags do help for new channels to get suggested and rank on YouTube. 

Suggestion isn't the work of tags

@matetysuman what kind of tags are useful. I have used it only once and given no benefit to me.

It depends upon how you use it. 

Do you think tags doesn't help? If yes, why YouTube suggests us the feature?

It helped or not but use them. You can research more about tags on YouTube.

You have explained everything so well and perfect. I have never use hashtag on youtube and i don't know what are its uses. I have use hashtag in instagram . Once i have added hashtag on youtube but it has given no use to me. I think hashtags are less important in youtube..

Thank You for your thoughts about it.

Your welcome 🙂

Tags on YouTube video will prove beneficial if the content being provided is misspelled or else the tags don’t play a significant role in the video discovery.

Yeah I agree with you friend.

They are not helpful as in the past but I do suggest for every new channel to use tags and research about that.

Good luck friend.

I didn't use any tags before. I didn't find it useful. But if you are saying it then you must have been experienced it. I will add the tag in my next video and will see that will it give me benefit or not
