Learn how related videos work on YouTube and how to optimize your videos so that your content is more likely to display as a related video not only against your own videos, but against other people’s videos, too. We discuss briefly how the algorithm works, how it determines which videos to place as a related video, and in which order to rank them. Then we give a few tips and best-practices for what you can do to help your videos perform better as related videos on YouTube, too.
