“YouTube” is by far the most popular hosting (site) in the world for posting and watching videos. As of the beginning of 2022, the total number of users of this service is more than 2.3 billion.

Choose the right title for your video. This is one of the most important things. Think about what the users who are interested in your topic are most likely to enter in the search, and add these words to the title.
