    ive been able to find some pretty good tags lately with high search and low competition, one tag for example would be (call of duty ww2 how to fall back) which is sitting at 86 score, now would it be better to enter the tag as is or would it be better to add it like (call) (of) (duty) (how) (to) (fall) (back) breaking up the tag into multiple words making the sentence, any input would be appreciated thanks

    I would use the whole long tail tag first. Then break it down:
    1) call of duty ww2 how to fall back
    2) call of duty ww2
    3) call of duty how to fall back
    I hope this helps, -Paul

    Long descriptive keyword phrases (AKA TAGS) Think about it this way. If you were looking up "How to install Call of Duty Black Ops 4" How long would it take if you typed it into search "How" one word "To" One word "Install", etc. To find "How to install Call of Duty Black Ops 4? You need to be specific because people search specifically for the content they want! One word keywords don't help you show up in search, so they're not worth including, unless you are a large channel who can compete for them, but even large channels lose competition there CONSTANTLY.

    MIX! i sometimes try rank for some REALLY hard keywords like "Renault" or "Nissan" and ill rank for 2 weeks and drop off but sometimes them short tags stick for example "renault Zoe" highly competitive tag and hard to rank for i have 3 videos showing against some HUGE views so i add a good mix, according to creator insider tags don't matter as much as we all think
