Introduction to YouTube Groups
YouTube Groups allow users to come together and hold public discussions, post relevant videos, and ultimately add to the YouTube community. If you’ve ever participated on a bulliten board or a forum, you should feel right at home.
YouTube Group Benefits
Although there aren’t any immediate SEO benefits, participating in relevant YouTube Groups can help you:
- Stay Informed on a Topic
- Ask / Answer Questions
- Generate Video Ideas
- Meet and Interact with other YouTubers
- Generate Views for your videos
Groups are also widely used to host video competitions, so checking regularly for new groups could uncover opportunities you wouldn’t normally be aware of.
Where Can I Find YouTube Groups ?
The YouTube Groups section can be found by going to the community section of YouTube and then clicking on Groups:
You will be able to scroll through the more popular groups created on YouTube this way, but you’ll soon notice that there isn’t an easy way to search for specific groups to join. Well I’ve got you covered.
To help find relevant groups to join, check out the YouTube Group Search tool. This custom search engine searches only YouTube Group pages based on your particular keyword. Give it a try and see what you can find, because there are a lot of great groups out there !
