So video blogging is not anymore a quantity game, it’s not how much videos you upload a day what matter is how much value and quality content you producing. So focus on quality rather than quantity.
Upload videos more than 10 min
Recent studies show that there is a strong relationship between video time and video ranking in search .so make sure your video duration is more than 10 minutes
Add Branding watermark to your videos
This is another thing you can do it. YouTube allows us to add a watermark to the videos just go to the Creator studio and in the channel menu you have an option called “Watermark” by adding a watermark when your viewers watching your videos they see an icon inside the video called” subscribe” this will increase your subscriber’s rate.
