This metric is a bit confusing, because does it mean that your competitors are doing excellent or does it mean you’ve found a keyword is an excellent choice for you to use in your own video?

How does TubeBuddy use its optimization strength score to help you figure out your keywords?

The optimization strength in TubeBuddy’s score analysis section refers to how good a keyword phrase is going to be for your channel (weighted), or in general (unweighted).

If it says excellent, than GREAT!! It’s a perfect keyword for you to use!

If it says poor than you’ve found a keyword that would be competing against a ton of other videos that already optimized for that specific keyword. In other words, your video efforts would get lost in the shuffle.

That’s it for today! A short one, but important when using TubeBuddy to know what you’re looking at.

Take care!
