FAQ

Why not post your YouTube videos to Facebook?

Facebook doesn't like YouTube. Anything you post to Facebook that diverts its audience from the platform won't be seen as a positive thing. Any YouTube link will be less popular due to the Facebook algorithm.

Do you have to post only funny videos on Facebook?

No! No! This is double work but it's worth it if you put so much effort into making a video.

Should I publish my videos on YouTube or Facebook?

If your video is uploaded to Facebook, you won't get any organic traffic. This is the Facebook vs. Google argument. Google does not want to show Facebook videos in search results. A YouTube video with a well-optimized title, description, and tag has better SEO implications.

Summary

Facebook and YouTube are completely different. Software such as Restream can be used to simultaneously live-stream to Facebook, and publish to YouTube.

It's all about algorithms. You will succeed if you play the game. Good luck!

This is very true. Facebook doesn’t want you to post YouTube links because it will take you out of Facebook and then Facebook loses you over to YouTube.

I’ve learned from other courses that it’s fine to upload a video directly to Facebook but never a YouTube link. Facebook likes you to upload videos directly to it and to share them widely as this keeps eyes on Facebook rather than losing them to YouTube.

What also boosts your standing on the Facebook algorithm is your engagement with it as a whole. Comment in different groups other than your own niche. NEVER just “Like” stuff as that is too neutral, use ANY of the other emoticons.

Start conversations on your own timeline just to create more engagement. The example I was shown on this was one marketer who took a picture of his supper (it was nothing special) and asked others what they were having. He got TONS of replies back. I’ve done similar.

For commenting in groups, to ensure I do this as much as possible, I created a group called Laughing Out Loud for funny pictures, videos and such and have joined several others from which I draw funny content from and share to my group. (NO marketing allowed). This way Facebook will give me extra points for when I post an article on my own timeline - it doesn’t get buried. Facebook WILL bury such stuff if you aren’t active on its platform.

Just some thoughts!
