Let’s look at hashtags in video descriptions for a moment

They are more useful than tags, because they do form a minor part of YouTube’s discovery mechanisms. How do they work? Users can click on a hashtag above a video title or within a video’s description and see a list of all the videos which also include this hashtag in their description.

Hashtags appear as clickable links above the video title
Hashtag pages act as a directory of the most popular videos on a given topic

To include a hashtag above the video title, just ensure they are included within the video description. The first three hashtags will feature above the video title on the YouTube watch page.

How many tags is too many tags?

Don’t worry, there’s no right or wrong number of tags to use. As mentioned before, they have minimal to no impact on rankings, so you can be fairly liberal hen you upload a video.  As a rule of thumb, between Switzerland Phone Number five and twenty feels about right. Some studies suggest that videos with more than thirty tags correlate with higher numbers of views. However, I don’t think there is a causal relationship between the two.

Rather than worrying about the number of tags, instead,

focus on ensuring all of the appropriate and relevant tags are included.This way, your video has the best chance possible to rank for relevant queries. There are some good tools to use to determine which tags are most appropriate, which I’ll cover at the end of this post.

Only three hashtags are featured above the YouTube title. A good rule of thumb is to use three to five hashtags in the description of your video. Keep in mind that Google suggested they look unfavorably on videos that have an excess of hashtags in the description. So, don’t go overboard. A wall of ten hashtags becomes hard to read and browse through.
