Writing a channel description

Writing a good and unique channel description is vital to rank higher on search engines like Google. If your channel ranks high, you will get more views, easy as that.

The channel description should introduce yourself, your niche and what content the viewers can expect. 

Here are some things to think about when creating a good channel description:

  • Don't copy-paste: Your channel description on VOYD has to be different from those on other platforms, such as YouTube. If you use the same description on multiple pages, it will negatively affect your ranking on Google.

  • First lines matter: The first few lines of your description are the most important, as they will be visible to viewers without clicking "show more." 

  • Highlight your niche: Explain the topics or themes your channel covers and what makes your content unique. 

  • Show your personality: Give your audience a sense of who you are.

  • Use keywords: Try to use some keywords related to your niche. 

  • Keep it concise: A optimal channel description is somewhere between 400-800 characters.

  • Make it visually appealing: Use line breaks and bullet points to break up the text and make it easier to read. (Allowed tags are a, br, em, i, li, ol, p, span, strong and ul)
