Video Marketing How To Take Advantage Of YouTube Advanced Search
Ann has put together a great guide to do advanced YouTube search for your video marketing. Once you understand the dynamics of YouTube, there’s a way to take advantage of the ever increasing views to popular videos. What do I mean? Advertising on videos that get 10,000 to 30,000 increased views per day.
First, follow Ann’s guide for advanced search. It will be huge boost to your video marketing adventure.
Second, set up a new YouTube channel, this new YouTube channel is for sending and receiving emails via YouTube only.
Third, as you find popular videos in Music, Entertainment, that are not official Music channels of that particular artist, example remix of popular songs, believe me there’s thousands upon thousands of personal YouTube channels with videos that get tens of thousands of views per day.
Fourth, pick videos that do not have any hyperlinks to any promos and 10,000 to 30,000 increased views per day, save them or subscribe to there channel for future reference. (It will take a couple of days to check which ones are increasing in views)
Fifth, Email a request to that channel owner to put your link to your site, promo, or any landing page, in the beginning of there description of the video. ( Agree to pay them $10 to$20 dollars to there PayPal once link is active. (I ask them to keep link live for 30 day’s for that price) It’s good for the YouTube Channel owner and for you. I usually get a good response, here’s sample Email below: keep it simple and genuine.
( This could be your lucky day,I was just looking at a few videos today and I selected a few that I would offer $$$ in return for a link placed in the description area of your videos [video_title]
I can make quick and easy payment via paypal.
lets make this happen.
Sixth, the tricky part is finding a video that matches, the viewers of these popular videos, so far, dating site’s, health, gaming and electronic promos work well, you get a lot of clicks to your promo at a relatively cheap cost (depends on promo and video) in the beginning I paid 10 to 50 cents a click, but with some testing you can get that way down to about 1 tenth of a cent and make some good money in the process thru conversions) and by all means if you do really well with a video/promo send the channel owner a little bonus, believe me it goes a long way in your video marketing success, word gets around, we all like to make money……!
Ok, I’ll admit it sounds like a lot of work but it’s well worth it if you stick it out, it’s how I started in the beginning, I have a software program that does all the back end for my video marketing search…..not available to the general public, but will keep you informed when it is.

Whether you are into Youtube marketing looking to establish your Youtube presence or you just love using Youtube to discover new cool videos daily, understanding how Youtube search works is very essential. If you want to learn how to take full advantage of YouTube’s search functionality, there are a number of options and commands that you can use to enhance your searches within YouTube.
Here’s the complete guide into Youtube advanced search options and operators.
Default YouTube Search Results
By default, Youtube search results are sorted by “relevance” and include all result types (videos, playlists, channels, etc)
You can tweak default search results using the tips below:
YouTube Advanced Search Options, Commands & Operators
Youtube offers you to use its built-in filters and sorting options that hide behind “Filter” link:
As you can see from the screenshot above, you can use the 4 groups of options:
- Sorting (by relevance, date, view count and rating);
- Date frame (you can see videos which were uploaded today, this week or this month);
- Result type (channel, playlist, movie, show or 3D);
- Quality (HD, closed captions, long videos, videos from partners, creative commons, live broadcasts)
While the above options are pretty clear, there are two things you may be unaware of:
1. You can switch between search options using commas in your search query
A comma is a less-known way to activate any of the above filters. For example, if you want to see recent Lady Gaga’s video clips in HD, all you need to do is to type: [Lady Gaga, HD]:
(The trick doesn’t work for sorting options though)
2. Hovering over any filter enables you to quickly de-activate it:
That’s another time-saving tip for active Youtube users. You can change your search options right on hover-over:
Boolean Operators for YouTube Search
Boolean operators are little tricks that work in almost all search engines. For Youtube these are:
1) + operator to force the search results to include your second search phrase.
Example: [lady gaga +madonna]
2) - operator to force the search results to omit your second search phrase.
This one turns particularly handy if your search results are flooded with some popular results. Example: [lady gaga -"bad romance"]
Likewise, you can force the search results to omit any particular filter, if you use a comma. For example, if you don’t want to see channels in your search results, you can type [your search term, -channel]:
Google’s Search Operators in Youtube
Since Youtube is powered by Google, it’s quite natural they have quite a few search operators in common. There’s a very detailed articles listing Google’s search operators that work in Youtube. The most important search operators include:
1. Force exact match ["search term"]
Youtube’s search results are already quite exact-match-centric, but sometimes all you need to find is your exact phrase. Besides, if you are using any sorting option rather than “Relevance”, you’ll find your search results quite irrelevant. Quotes are there to help:
2. Force your search terms in the name of the video [intitle:"search term"]
That’s another great way to increase relevance when you are using non-default sorting options:
3. Substitute any word with the wildcard [*]
Sometime, you don’t have a search term and just want to get the list of random videos. That’s when a wildcard operator helps a lot. For example, you can all current LIVE videos sorted by popularity using [*, live] search plus the “number of views” sorting option:
