    It’s funny this was today’s topic i was just advising a friend on his youtube channel in part about titling things here’s what I said:
    Title: It Should start with your name, so there’s no confusion or guessing games on who’s video it is, also if people post your videos elsewhere you want to make sure you’re getting credit and not just a funny joke from an unknown comic. Then follow it with a short (one or two words if possible) description of the video that is interesting , relevant, enticing without, giving away the jokes punch line. The reason for the short description is when the videos appear in your side bar or on a videos “Suggestions” section only the first few words are visible. So for example “Crackers comedy club- Comics Name- unexpected punchline” which appears in the side bar as only “crackers comedy club-Comics” could be Changed to “Comics Name-Central topic” Shorter doesn’t give away a great line as much and puts your name first.

    Hey Ryan, I’d actually flip it and put your name after the title but you’re thinking is correct. The reason is that the title will get more clicks than your name. But I agree in principle that you should have your name on your videos in the title – also because it tells YouTube that your videos are closely related so you’ll get more spots in the related videos it pulls on the sidebar.

    Makes sense to me, I may send some time fliping my titles on my videos, good thinking sir.


  4. Wow! What a great topic and informative subject! I will certainly need to re-title my videos and pay much more attention to such details in the future.


    Advice appreciated for the clip above from Gotham Comedy Club.

    Hey Stephen, the first thing you’ll want to do is get rid of all those hyphens and the “.mpg” in the title – I assume you didn’t really title the video at all and that’s just the uploaded file name?

    I’d then recommend figuring out what “name” you’re going to brand all your videos with and put that at the end of the video title. Could be “Stephen Hunt” or “Stephen HaHa Hunt” or “HaHa Ministries,” or whatever you decide to brand yourself, but be consistent with it and use it on all of your videos.
