How to Create Stand Out Video Thumbnails

Learn how to make high quality thumbnails

The thumbnail image is one of the most important factors for creating a video that will get lots of exposure and clicks. It is the first point of contact with viewers, so try to use an amazing image that invokes curiosity and encourages the viewer to read the title and click on the video. Covering the thumbnail with other images and text overlay is not a good practice and even tho many video creators do it, it actually hurts the videos ranking. You can use copyright free images from Google Images to make amazing thumbnails. Simply search for an image that is relevant to your video and then click on tools > usage rights > and select available for reuse or available for reuse with modification, if you want to change the image. You can use a website like TextFX to make amazing text titles to include in your image but keep in mind that if it covers more than 15% of the thumbnail we may not accept it unless it look professional and stands out.

Don’t paste your Title as a tag, rather separate the key phrases within it with a comma. Use unique tags of 2-3 keywords, a tag like “Viral” with be sunk in a sea of a million other similar tags. Use the keyword research tool in the SEO section above to find relative keywords and phrases for tags and titles. Use keyword rich long-tail titles of 5 – 10 words. Keep making your videos, titles and thumbnail images higher quality. Link to your videos from high ranked websites to increase backlink profile, which boosts search engine rankings. Add your handle ie @your-name at the end of your video title and social users can directly click on your profile from our social network posts.

Submitting YouTube and Facebook Video URLs

YouTube: 

The wrong place to copy Youtube video links is by copying from the address bar in a mobile phone browser. This will give you the m.youtube.com version and no thumbnail will be generated.

The right place to copy YouTube video URLs is by hitting the share button from on the actual youtube video or by copying it from the address bar on a desktop computer. See the example image below the submit video form for more information.

Facebook: 

Facebook can be tricky, they don’t make it easy to find the right video link, especially on a desktop computer. They also constantly change their platform, making it hard to stay up to date. You can find the right link by using the Facebook app, click into or start playing the video and then press share (don’t press share from the post in your feed). See the example image below the submit form to learn more.
