Questions from tonight's Live Stream webinar
« on: January 25, 2018, 03:57:32 PM »
Jon (or Josh, or Amin)

Firstly, great webinar.  :)

Secondly, your expansion of IVW's capabilities is making it THE top software of its class - much appreciated!

A few questions about what you showed us in the Live Stream webinar tonight:

1) How did you upload the same Live Event, with the same Thumbnail, using the same pre-recorded video... yet manage to rank in Google for multiple cities? Did you have to upload multiple times, specifying different days/times for each Live Event to occur?

2) How many days before the live event actually streams, can you upload the event (and get the "placeholder" to rank in YouTube and Google), yet still get Page One ranking? For instance, you showed an example where you uploaded tonight at 5pm EST, for a Live Stream occurring 36 hours in the future - and it ranked on Page One in Google. What if you uploaded a FULL WEEK before the actual Live Stream - would you still rank on Page One?

3) Same as Question #2, but AFTER, instead of before. For instance, you showed a Page One Google ranking that still existed, 3 days after the live event happened. How long after the live stream occurs, have you personally tested, and seen your listing still on Page One?

Thanks, Marian

1. You can create one video and schedule a YouTube Live event for it, then clone that video and create a different Live Event for a different set of keywords.

2. I believe Josh scheduled a video at least a week in advance and it still ranked immediately.

3. After the live event completes, YouTube will copy the streamed video as a new video which often ranks. Not always, but often, depending on the keywords. If the video doesn't continue to rank you can build a few backlinks to it to get the ranking back.

We've done it about a week in advance. I'm not sure how far in advance you can go. With it being so easy to do, why not give it a try and see?

Thanks Jon for answering, but...

Let's say I create 5 clone-video Live Events, each with a different city in the keywords - as you suggest.  That means I now have 5 identical Live Events, scheduled at different days/times.

a) Does that mean I would let the first Live Event happen, then remove the other four before they're scheduled to occur - so my viewers/subscribers don't get angry at attending 5 duplicate events?

b) Won't YouTube get upset with me, if I keep publishing Live Events, but always remove 80% of them before they occur?

Thanks again, Marian

If your keywords are different, they won't appear in the same list. People usually search for physical things near them, so tents town A would appear on a different list from tents town B. They will only appear on the same list if they have identical keywords. This is aimed at organic searches on Google. If you are sending to a list, only send one. If you are thinking of subscribers to your Youtube Channel, I would suggest that subscribers seeing 5 events would know that events are made live at different times to facilitate viewers who can only view at certain times.

I would advise against removing the live events before they actually play. I have no doubt that YouTube would not look kindly on that.

On the one hand I agree with Meg, that your subscribers will know the event is for a different location because of the title. On the other hand you need to be careful not to bombard your subscribers with notices regarding events they won't be interested in.

The best solution is to create a different channel for each location you'll be targeting if you know you'll be doing a lot of different videos for those areas. I'm not aware of any way to prevent the notices from appearing for your subscribers.

Marian: That's exactly what I was worried about.

Jon said: ...you need to be careful not to bombard your subscribers with notices regarding events they won't be interested in. I'm not aware of any way to prevent the notices from appearing for your [YouTube] subscribers.

Marian: Again, this is what I was worried about.

Jon said: The best solution is to create a different channel for each location you'll be targeting if you know you'll be doing a lot of different videos for those areas.

Marian: Interesting approach, but I would be doing videos for a LOT of "areas". I read somewhere, that YouTube now limits each account to a maximum of 5 channels. If so, then this proposed solution (different channels for each area) will NOT work.

Jon, I think the only (very time intensive) solution, to publishing Live Events on the same topic, and ranking for a list of many "areas" - would be to create a different video for each area. As I said, very time intensive.

Unless you have a better solution Jon...?

Creating a different video for each area is not difficult. Based on last night's webinar, which gave me fantastic ideas, I am working on a video at the moment using an article pulled from ArticleBuilder (included in IVW). It means I have made a slightly longer video but I am OK with that. I can now clone that video, change the keywords to something a little different and target another area. I can change the pictures and text within the cloned video quite easily and it's not necessary (in my opinion) to do them all. A few changes will make them look microniche.

What Meg said.

There's nothing time intensive about it. Create one solid video, clone it and just change the location in the title / description and any slide that has the location in it. Render the video (two mouse clicks) and schedule the live event (which only takes a few seconds).

Firstly, my thanks to both Jon and Meg, for trying to fully explain a potential solution.  :)

It appears to depend upon the intelligence of your YouTube Subscribers (or your mailing list), in being able to realize that each "clone" Live Event is targeted to only one community - and then choosing which community is most relevant (or simply closest) to them - and watching only that Live Event. (Still, they would be "pestered" by many live event notifications they're not interested in.)

One final (related) question: I recall Jon saying (when IVW launched), that there was no limit on the number of channels, that a single YouTube account can create.

Is that still true, or is there now a 5-channel maximum per account (which someone else has claimed)...?

Thanks for all your help, Marian

The number of channels IVW can manage is unlimited. Even if you run into a YouTube channel limitation, you can always create another YouTube account with a different email address and create more channels there -- then add those channels into IVW.

I'm trying to get my head around how to live stream the actual video that I want to be shown.

Once I schedule the live stream placeholder and then I go out and get a client, who of course wants their video shown, what do I do from there?  Is there a video that shows the process of replacing the placeholder with a client's video?

Thanks,
Marvin

There's nothing else to do. The video you used to create the live event will be streamed to the YouTube event at the time you scheduled it for.
