Mistakes People Make When Trying To Make Money With YouTube

It can be very easy to make money with YouTube if you know what you are doing. YouTube gets you super targeted people to your website, signs up for your email list and builds a lot of trust quickly. However, if you don’t do it right, you may find yourself frustrated with the lack of results. In this article, I will discuss with you the most common mistakes that people make when trying to make money with YouTube.

1. Their channel has no theme

Many times when I rate a YouTube channel, I don’t see an actual structure to the videos. It’s just a bunch of random videos about all sorts of things. The YouTube channel is a hub. Many people visit YouTube channels to get more information about the author. If there is no structure, then people will get confused. Keep your videos about your family, funny cat videos and your camping trip on a different channel and make it easy to know what your channel and videos are about.

2. Videos are not optimized

A YouTube video is a web page. Let me say it again. A YouTube video is a web page. Therefore, it follows all the same rules as a web page when it comes to SEO. Titles, tags, descriptions are critical. Make your videos unique, not titles. If you want to be found, you need to focus on keyword-rich titles. Use quality keywords in the tags and make sure the description has good content that explains the video.


When using YouTube to drive traffic to your site, you must have your FULL URL in your description. Must be first something in your description too. And not only http://www. It must be full “”. Not only is this good to have for your audience to get to your site, but it does wonders for your SEO. This is a link pointing to your site from a very popular site.

4. No watermark

This is SO often overlooked. Having a subtle image in your video of a branding logo or just your website URL works wonders. Without a doubt, 50% of the traffic I see when I advertise on YouTube alone is direct traffic. I know it is because they see my URL watermark and type it into the address bar.

5. No call to action

It’s a rookie mistake, but it happens during the LIVE time. It says nothing, click the link below for more information or visit my website or even comment on this video and tell me what you think. It’s crucial to have a specific call to action in your video, otherwise no one will take action. You have to gently lead people by the hand and tell them exactly what to do.

By addressing these common mistakes, you will see more and more traffic to your site as you create more videos. I remember. YouTube is owned by Google. They follow the same SEO rules as a typical web page. Use this to your advantage and you will see a big change in traffic to your site.
