Subtitles and transcription help your video to appear in lot more YouTube search results

Video transcript and leads on YouTube

YouTube indexes its videos from the contents it identifies. This is: the video title, a brief description and tags, and people comments.

Other than your title and brief description, you need subtitles to help YouTube properly index your video.

Video transcription helps YouTube to index your video contents in your language, so:

  1. YouTube can list it in search results for phrases spoken on your video and similar ones,
  2. YouTube can recommend it in its sidebar when user is watching similar videos (this time, many more).

Video subtitles and number of visits on YouTube

The same goes for your video subtitles in other languages.

Add subtitles to your videos and you'll help people from many more countries reach your videos, and fully understand and enjoy them.

Subtitles and transcription help your video to appear in lot more YouTube search results, both in your language and others.

Result:

  • your video gets more visits, comments and shares,
  • your profile gets more subscriptions,
  • and your site gets more targeted traffic.
