When I look on the right hand side of a video I'm always seeing:
This video's tags appear *** times in title and description
This video has *** search results for its tags

What would you say is a healthy number for both of these to aim for?

Thanks

Well, I don't know of a healthy number, but the way I do it is:
1. Make a list of 5 to 10 keywords phrases. (These will all go in the tags.)
2. Pick one keywords phrase that will go in the title.
3. Write a blog post in the description that contains all the keywords phrases.
4. Thumbnail and video file name will contain the main keyword phrase.
5. Often the first comment I will include the main keyword phrase.

This is what has worked for me.

I also would do some tag research to make sure out of those 5 - 10 phrases, which one you can perform the best for! :D

Well, of course, but I guess you can't assume people know that. The thing is always do keywords research, even when you're watching YouTube videos for fun. Do keywords research on the vidoes you're watching. Learn to drill down and out to find longer keywords phrases that you can use in future videos. Have hundreds of lists of keywords phrases saved and at the ready.

I would simply say include in your tags notable words that are part of your video's title and description. For instance, if you were doing a series video on a videogame, and you're currently on Part 7, then a tag can be "[videogame name] part 7" because it's the most relevant towards what video you're looking for.

That's just one example, but the bottom-line is try to be both specific and general with your tags, a bit of both actually. That's what I do with mine, but maybe I'm doing it wrong.

Don't know, but what's most important at the end of the day is that the tags you make include keywords most close to what your video is, i description, title, and content.

Your Title, Description, and Tags all work together. research a working title, and then as I do research of tags, I see if there is a tag that might fit my video better. I have a gaming channel, what I learned works best is people will search for an episode #, but will also search for what happened in that episode specifically too :D !
