    So basically tagging is one of the harder parts to uploading a video I find. Could anybody share any tips on how to tag your video correctly?

    Well from what I've read from experiences people have had in the past getting banned or warned about using excessive amounts of tags. I'd recommend only using tags related to your video and topic. Try not to go over board with them to avoid trouble with YouTube.

    If you could share a couple video titles and video topics you use in a couple videos, I'm sure I or others could help you come up with some tags to use for them.

    I use about 10 tags. For like gaming, which is what we do, if we are playing mario kart, I will use the normal tags like Mario Kart, Mario Kart online but then I toss in keywords like go kart or bowser. I try using the obvous keywords but then toss in ones i think will rank high but not as used. It has been doing great for ranking us.

    Apparently the less tags you use, the better.

    So 5 good tags would be better than 10 normal ones.

    I did a nice little experiment with tags and youtube SEO, you can find it in reddit:
