    What Google’s Core Update teaches us about YouTube’s Algorithm [Ep. #251]

    What Google’s Core Update teaches us about YouTube’s Algorithm [Ep. #251]

    Google is always tweaking their search algorithms. In fact, they're making changes to it every single day. But last month they rolled out a big core update that was clearly noticeable, which they tend to do several times a year.
     
    December's core update impacted a lot of websites and, while we won't get into all the details of what that looks like on the website, it paints a picture for us of where YouTube's search and discovery systems are headed in 2021.
     
    Today we want to dive into what that is, what we can learn from it, and what we need to focus on as creators in 2021 if we want YouTube's improving algorithms to continually surface our videos to the right viewer at the right time.

Thank You + YouTube Hashtag Question

Hi Tim! I wanted to just reach out and express my gratitude for the valuable content you are sharing with the world. Your podcasts are energizing and inspiring, as well as educational! That brings me to a big question I’ve been having that I can’t seem to find the answer to online anywhere! (read on...)

I have been sporadically posting videos to my YouTube channel since 2018 but decided to start taking it more seriously with my New Years Resolution to post one video every week (same day, same time). So far I have stuck to that, and now I am gearing up to increase my posting to 2-3 times per week (pushing for 3 times per week). I have done tons of studying through books, youtube videos, virtual trainings, podcasts, blogs, etc. because I understand that to truly grow online, and specifically YouTube, it’s so much more than just creating videos. I have learned a lot about the best practices regarding titles, thumbnails, keywords, tags, descriptions, etc., but one thing I just can’t seem to dig up much in the way of recent information on is YouTube HASHTAGS! Everything that pulls up on YouTube and Google is from around 2018, when the feature was new. I found one recent post (March 2020) on it, but we all know that the dynamic of the platform has changed a lot over the course of 2 years. Given the large output I am preparing to do (as a one-man-band, by the way), I want to know if YouTube hashtags are worth my time. I am trying to tackle my channel with “no stone left unturned” but my time is still limited, and if this is obsolete, I don’t want to waste time on it. If it is not, however, why are hashtags still helpful for search? What would be the best way to identify “optimized hashtags” today? I want to apply best practices, but I just can’t find anything current. )Apologies for the redundancy.)

I’d really love to hear your take on it as a current creator and YouTube expert I often learn from. I love that your answers to questions and lessons are always packed with not only actionable steps, but also with reasons behind it all and the value of each strategy. I’ve honestly been hesitant to post a question because I know you and your team are so successful that I fear it will get lost in the mix. But now I realize that you have given so much to me that it doesn’t entirely matter whether you do or don’t; you always come through with something valuable! Hope you get around to answering this question. Thanks again for everything you’re doing!

Excellent!!

Tim is straightforward, knowledgeable, and professional. I am learning so much! It is challenging and intimidating sometimes but the facts I am learning are invaluable.

Overwhelmed but inspired

I have wanted to start a channel forever but was too afraid no one would care what I have to say. I jumped in and doing it to satisfy something from within. However, I want to so more. Stumbled onto the podcast and I’m addicted! Still not sure about my niche but I know I’m paying my dues!
