1. Info

This section includes the video’s title and the description of the video.

  • Title: This is the name of the video that makes searchers remember or decide whether to watch it or not. Putting keywords in your title makes sure they turn up in the search results.
  • Description: Explains what the video is about. It displays at the bottom of the video and allows others to learn more information about your video. Viewers can read while they watch it. To help your video be noticeable, let’s write an interesting and unique description, don’t just copy the title into the description box or write nothing.
2. Options

Under this section, you can add tags, choose suitable category and privacy for your video.

  • Tags: Allow your video to appear in other viewers’ searches. Tags are words or short phrases that describe the video and help others find it on YouTube. When users type keywords related to your tags, your video will appear in their search results. Other videos with similar tags will often be seen together in the “Recommended videos” sidebar. Note that your tags should be separated with comma if you enter tags. For example, if you upload a video about How to Split and Join Videos, you may add tags: ActivePresenter, Split video, Join video.
  • Category: Describes accurately the class of your video content to make sure that YouTube keeps your video in relevant searches. Optionally, ActivePresenter provides you with 15 categories and Education is default category.
