Youtube For Android Supports Hashtags

What’s New: Youtube For Android Supports Hashtags

YouTube’s latest app update (for Android users) now supports hashtags in video titles and descriptions.

Similar to other platforms, adding # before a word or phrase will make that phrase clickable for app users. This makes more topics searchable and opens up more possibilities for users to customize their YouTube experience. The top three hashtags will be displayed above video titles and at the bottom of videos.

Make sure to read the guidelines for appropriate hashtag use. Videos that violate Google’s terms will be taken down. You don’t want your SEO—or your reputation—to take that hit.

What We Think

This update makes sense for YouTube, who’s lately been hailed the 2nd largest search engine in the world behind Google (with more searches than Ask, AOL, Bing, and Yahoo combined, according to recent data from Mushroom Networks).

What It Means for You

If YouTube isn’t already a part of your SEO and digital marketing strategies, it’s time to reconsider. Uploading is easier than ever, you can edit within the platform, and your content becomes more interactive.
