How can I make the video results more relevant?

Solution

In some cases, the results you get back may not be exactly what you were looking for.

This may happen with terms that are the same in several languages. For example, the term "nutrition" is the same in both English and French.

Here are some ideas to help you get more relevant results:

Use longer keywords: For example, nutrition tips is more specific than nutrition.

Use quotation marks: For example, "nutrition tips" is more specific than nutrition tips.

Preview the fetched video results: Instead of clicking the "Create Video Posts" button, you can click the "Preview Videos" button. That way, you will be able to see the videos that are returned, and only check the ones you want to be added.

Use negative keywords: If you see certain unwanted terms appearing in the fetched videos, you can make a list of them and add them in the "Filter out These Keywords" text area.

Use the language filter: The YouTube API allows to specify a language. The plugin has a "Language" drop-down menu. This will increase the chances the videos you get back are in that language. Keep in mind this feature is still experimental (on YouTube's side), and it may not work 100% perfectly all the time. YouTube should be improving this soon.

Hope this helps!
