    I had been maintaining a youtube channel without paying heed to improving the tags, description, and title until I discovered Tubebuddy. I realized that I could discover all the trending keywords, measure the competitive score, and rank probability score for each and every title and keyword that I target for my new as well as already uploaded videos with the help of Tubebuddy. So this tool has been an eye-opener for me. Nowadays I research in detail about every new topic that I intend to create a video about, and thanks to Tubebuddy, I can get an aerial 360-degree overview of the pros and cons of the title and associated tags that I choose, before finalizing them for my Youtube videos. Tubebuddy's SEO scoring system can be misleading sometimes, and it has got two types of scoring - non-weighted score (for free users) and weighted score (for premium users). But if your Youtube Channel is already well-established then Tubebuddy SEO optimization can definitely help in further polishing and improving the channel standings in search results and ranking. But if your Youtube channel is in beginning stage or subscriber base is below 5k then it's very difficult and close to impossible to rank with the help of Tubebuddy's set lof tools Tubebuddy is an indispensable tool in my arsenal when it comes to SEO optimization and overall improvisation of my Youtube channel and its contents. It works as an ever-vigilant monitoring tool to keep track of my competitor's progress and updates and latest trends, as well as providing a checklist of right steps to take for ranking and SEO optimization of specifically Youtube videos. So it is a very useful tool for any video content creator who intends to grow his/her own or client's Youtube channel

    I really like the keyword search and how it shows you how it will do not only on your channel, but it's relevance for current searches. How it breaks down the stats of the keyword or longtail keyword you put in is easy to interpret and works! Right now, one of my most recent videos is number 6 under the keyword I found on TubeBuddy! I'm surprised and stoked that I actually made the top ten! I have the star plan and I feel it's pretty limited. I get most of what I need to be successful, but of course, I would love to have features like retention level and competitors scorecard. I think that TubeBuddy is great for small YouTubers that are either just starting out or are stagnant in the growth of their YouTube Channel. I started my channel in January 2020 and one of my videos ranks number 6 in search! I don't have thousands of views either, but headed in the right direction so I think it's a good start! I will say that if YouTube is just a hobby and you're not serious about using it to turn it into a business or grow one of your other platforms like a blog, then you may not want to invest in the money for it. If you are trying to make money or grow your other business from YouTube exposure then I highly recommend you get TubeBuddy! I also recommend that you make sure you're uploading frequently like at least once a month to get your money's worth. It doesn't do you any good to use a service you'll barely be using because you're not posting frequently enough. It's definitely helping my videos align with YouTube's algorithm so I show up in search even if I'm not promoting my own videos as much right now since I've been really busy. Actually, the majority of my traffic comes from YouTube search so I'm very impressed!

    The best experience starts with the installation of this tool. It's too easy to add this extension to my browser. I started with the free plan and it has tons of features in it's a free plan. The basic plan is enough for any channel which starts at 9 USD probably. I think ubebuddy gives better insight than any other youtube tools. It helps out to optimize tags, keywords, time, thumbnail, responses, search and so on. Ranking on youtube will be so practical and trustworthy using this tool and I experienced it with my own youtube channel. It allows to view the draft from other channels. The bulk updater and the translator are so useful feature to use for Video content SEO. Again the detailed analysis and report help me to rank my channel. I think they should consider their plans for users who have multiple channels. Their plan goes with only one channel. Again you can use it only in chrome browser which is a great lag I think. Highly recommend for the beginner youtube. Because it is easy to use for the first time even if don't have any idea how SEO works to rank your content. I'm using it to rank my youtube channel and my videos. It provides me with a detailed analysis of my channel and contents so that I can understand how to improve my rank. Again all the necessary touch can be made with this tool easily. It saves a lot of time and does the exact required things for me. And there are enough resources on youtube and the web for the training of beginner users.

    Tubebuddy pricing is really cool, there is a free tier and then it goes up witht he basic premium plan starting at just . there are also options which gets the users with less than 1000 youtube subscribers with great discounts and helps then get going. tubebuddy has one of the best browser plugins I've ever used. the plugin is available for google chrome as well as Mozilla Firefox. I used the plugin with chrome and it shows the basic analytics of your channel within the youtube dashboard, the plugin can also be used to analyse the competition like when you go on to watch a video on youtube, you can easily get the analytics and statistics of the video as well as the channel right in your dashboard. the plugin is extremely useful when you're uploading videos to your channel, once upload of the video is complete, the plugin gives you options to optimize the video to get maximum views on it. it suggests tags and checklists be completed for the video and I find it really helpful. the dahbord of the tubebuddy is beautiful and shows a lot of statistics related to your channel and keyword insgihts like trends within it. the customer service is not great, it takes them more than a day usually to reply to the messages. to get good insights on the channel you need to go with the higher premium packages which are costly. tubebuddy is a must have tools if youre a youtube user. the service help you a lot even when youre using their free tier. i highly recommend this service. tubebuddy is a youtube analytics and SEO service that gives you insights on the channel as well as help you optijmize your videos to be seen in the youtube search.

    Earlier, I used to use Keyword everywhere to find the keywords (well, I still use it) but after using TubeBuddy, I feel I have wasted my time to improve my video SEO which I can do easily with TubeBuddy.
    It is very good for beginners to do the SEO of their YouTube videos. Simple & easy to use. It maybe a little boring process when you became a pro But trust me, these basic thing serves a lot.
    Help to do the SEO for the videos Show the SEO score of other videos that we watch or maybe research Suggest best practices to make the video more visible
    Could add more social networks ranking Maybe add an auto keyword recommend system Show more details about the ranking

    I'm running 3 Youtube channels with the help of TubeBuddy and I never got depressed. I never wasted my time to make keyword research through third-party local websites and getting fake keywords. I always use to focus on content quality because I know that tube buddy is here to give perfect tags for youtube videos free of cost and all tags will be highly searchable and will make my video rank in the youtube algorithm. And my overall experience with tube buddy is also too good and I have recommended starting using tube buddy for keyword research purposes instead of using local third websites. If you are also thinking of a youtube channel then I will recommend you too to download and install tube body and start enjoying a youtube life.
    Suggesting tags automatically while uploading a video to a youtube channel is one of my favourites at all. I can say that I'm using TubeBuddy only for keyword research purposes. There are many websites that offer keyword research but I'm not satisfied with them. I'm using a tube body for the previous 4 years and I never got disappointed. I have no need to make research on keywords before going to upload a new video on youtube bacuse tube buddy is going to suggest me related tags automatic inside youtube studio while uploading. And this feature always saves my a lot of time, before using tube buddy I used to research keyword first and on the second day I used to upload video, but now there is nothing like this. And on the second thing, I liked most in tube buddy is video bulk sharing to social media like Facebook. I'm also running a Facebook too along my youtube channel and I use to post videos on my Facebook using the tube buddy bulk video feature. Because if we will go uploading videos manually on youtube and Facebook, it will waste a lot of time. And I know that time is much more important than everything, that's why I choose to be a friend with TubeBuddy to save me a lot of time.
    Well, I know that my overall experience with tube buddy is stunning, but I think there is no loss if things got improved. Actually, I'm not talking about any feature of tube buddy, I am going to discuss updating the system of TubeBuddy. I have updated my youtube channel name and logo inside youtube studio but that is still not updated inside tube buddy. Now, whenever any of my clients is going to hire me to get a youtube service, definitely he will ask for a tube buddy, whether I have experience tube buddy or not. Then I will not be able to prove to him that I'm using it for a long time. Because my channel name inside youtube studio and inside tube buddy account is different. I think it should be updated automatically because when I have already updated my channel information inside youtube studio, then there is no meaning of showing old information. I hope that the respected team of tube buddy will look over this problem and shall make it right for me.

    Overall I believe it is a really good tool to use if you have a YouTube channel because it's something like you teacher that helps you in you journey of becoming a successful youtouber.
    The thing I liked the most about using TubeBuddy is the key-word feature. It is really helpful because it guides you how to write your title in your YouTube video and have a higher chance of being discovered. I also liked that it gives you analytics for other YouTube channels and in that way you can see what works and what doesn't so you can adjust that to your own YouTube channel, for example you can make similar videos with the videos you saw that they perform well in other YouTube channels that they are similar to your own YouTube channel.
    The two things I didn't really like was, one, that they do not have enough free tools so you can get a good idea of what TubeBuddy may offer to you. And the other thing is that it made my loading screen on YouTube a little bit slower. Meaning that it took 5secs to load the next song and when I did not have the TubeBuddy it took 2. Nothing really tariffing It's just that I didn't liked it. I mean maybe it's just my internet connection.

    My favorite and most user-friendly YouTube SEO tool is Tube Buddy thanks to its Google Chrome addon. Without logging into the website, one can quickly optimize their films. Finally, for me, their monthly plan is quite reasonably priced. Tube Buddy also recommends high ranking tags and keywords for every user in order to obtain an advantage over their rivals. When it comes to helping my movies rank higher, TubeBuddy is incredibly successful. They provide top-notch analytics and excellent tag ideas. Since I started using this software, my channel's performance has changed significantly. They have excellent SEO, therefore I have no regrets about choosing them. You have a lot of power with this fantastic app for YouTube content producers.
    I haven't encountered a downside to TubeBuddy, as it seems to go above and beyond to assist video content creators in making quality videos and increasing the visibility of the channel and the video. The Chrome add-on has several minor bugs. However, after telling Customer Support about it, I was able to rectify it.

    I strongly believe that despite the benefits of the paid version of the program, if you are a smaller channel, a young YouTuber or small company, it could represent an extra cost to pay for the subscription. But if you have some set goals for YouTube success, then I would highly recommend it to include the usage of TubeBuddy.
    The thing I like the most is a different kind of analytical features inside the software. The one I found most helpful was concerning the recommended keywords which could place the video at the top of the search results. I used this feature a lot and it helped me to organically rise view count on my videos. For some time my travel vlog video came to the 4th place in mobile YouTube search which made me such a happy customer. :)
    Even though, there are so many really important sections and features inside the software the interface of the website was a bit packed up with information. Sometimes I would get lost in the sea of different kind of metrics and I needed some extra motivation to deal with all of it.

    TubeBuddy is a software that I would recommend to anyone that really wants to take content creation to the level of monetization and more, where you can learn about your community and what they want to see with helpful research and data analytical tools.
    YouTube Studio provides more analytical tools all for free plus it's connected to your YouTube channel.
    The many analytical tools like alternate titles to videos, that can be used alongside suggested help by the TubeBuddy team to make our YouTube videos stand out from the rest.
    Contradicting the pro to this software, the more well-established YouTubers or smaller creators with the most knowledgeable mind are able to view the most critical data behind a paywall. And as a small creator myself that isn't able to purchase the PRO package offered, would just have to stick to the regular data that can be easily found on YouTube Studio or another popular analytical software instead.

    My overall experience with TubeBuddy is wonderful. Because I really enjoy to use it and it's really easy to use. TubeBuddy helps to grow my YouTube channel from various aspects.
    TubeBuddy is such a versatile tool to work with. This is a kind of a third party to develop your YouTube channel in the right way. TubeBuddy helps to find the keywords for your videos which amazing. Because it's really tough to find proper keywords. You can easily check the video analytics with it. To check the COPPA status of your channel with TubeBuddy is a matter of a minute. If anyone wants to compare the channel with others it's easy with TubeBuddy. I am using this tool from a long time and it made my job very easy.
    To install TubeBuddy is not always easy for everyone . I would say it's tricky to download. The keywords TubeBuddy shows are not always perfect. It can be more improved. However, I utilized the given keywords

    Decent keyword/tag management tool but after some learning + Demonetization Audit in the free version + 50% OFF in Pro for those channels that have less than 1000 subscribers + the Affiliate program. Interesting tool, simple interface. Worth trying.
