After seeing an ad on my FB feed for Video Marketing Blaster Pro, I decided to check it out and I have to say, while I do think it’s legitimate, I’m not convinced about how awesome it sounds based on stuff I know regarding YouTube SEO and some stuff I’ve seen.
I actually have legitimate points to make to explain (3 in particular, see below) on why I’m not convinced, but before I get to explaining them, let me explain a few main points about this software so you know what it is:
Video Marketing Blaster Pro (VMB) explained:
What does it do? Supposedly, it helps you make high ranking YouTube videos. You create videos, then go through the software to find the best, low competition keywords, pick them out and then basically the software fills in the info such as the title, description and tags.
After that, that info that’s input will be uploaded to YouTube so you can publish it and you should see results very quickly after you publish the upload on YouTube. Also, what you upload may even show up on Google’s search and thus drive more traffic and views to it.
What I think: I know about:
- Ranking and making money on YouTube (I’ll show you my case studies with my videos).
- As well as a whole lot about ranking websites.
And there’s a few key things I carefully examined about this software to see if it really does do what it says and I found that there’s a serious misconceptions I notice (which I will explain).
The short story is that this program doesn’t rank you for highly searched keywords on YouTube if it has competition and I proved this by investigating this myself. I’ll give you my report below on this:
Before I do that, let me quickly say this:
Let me explain why I’m not convinced about Video Marketing Blaster Pro:
The impression people get is that with this software (I certainly did) is that you can rank high for some big keywords on YouTube and get more views and exposure on the videos you upload there by using this program and it’s supposed to be “easy” to do all of this.
Now I did a bunch of research prior on this program including:
- Checking out it’s sales page.
- Checking out the ad itself that I found on Facebook (it’s how I found out about Video Marketing Blaster Pro in the first place).
- Comparing the claims I saw with what I personally know about YouTube ranking, getting views and so on.
- Checking out YouTube reviews from people who claim to have used this program.
And in doing all of this…
I found one potential issue that made me decide NOT to buy this program:
And here it is: Every example I’ve investigated of people using Video Marketing Blaster Pro to make their videos rank “high” on YouTube are:
- For keywords that have very little competition.
- And almost always for keywords that get little to no searches.
In other words, I saw NO evidence that this program can help you rank for truly popular and competitive keywords. And I will be showing you proof of this in this review so you can see it for yourself.
In fact, I’m certain that if we had 2 scenarios, where:
1) Person A was uploading a YouTube video directly without this software, and trying to rank for a VERY none competitive keyword vs
2) Person B was uploading a YouTube video for the same keyword using the Video Marketing Blaster Pro software.
Then it is my personal opinion that both their uploads would rank nearly identically, regardless if one person used the software and the other didn’t.
Because the keyword for which they were trying to rank for had no competition and frankly, hardly anyone, if anyone would actually look it up on YouTube.
And this makes buying the software pretty useless.
3 reasons and proof on why I say this:
I seriously went deep into researching to see if there were any legit reasons to get Video Marketing Blaster Pro and my research had me discover the following proof that said there was 0 evidence this program works as it claims:
1) Let’s start with Video Marketing Blaster Pro’s Facebook ad.
The ad was how I first discovered this program and the ad was actually an inside look into the program and showing “how quickly” it works. I watched it, and carefully studied what was being shown. And it was the first of several red flags I noticed with this program. Here is what that red flag was: The video shows supposedly the creator trying to rank a video on YouTube for the following keyword:
“Video marketing Bronx”
And in fact, after using this software, the video did appear for that search and on the first page of YouTube. That’s great, but here’s the problem:
How many people actually look up that keyword on YouTube? And even on Google? I have 3 pieces of evidence that say little to none:
- First evidence: I used my personal keyword tool, Jaaxy and it said less than 10 monthly, which usually means 0.
- Second evidence: I used the keywords everywhere tool and it said 10 searches a month.
- Third evidence: I actually found the video that was trying to rank for this keyword on YouTube (the same video Video Marketing Blaster Pro put up on the Facebook ad to show proof) and guess what? It only has 1 view (seriously!?):
Now you see the channel “Easy video rankings”, but you also see the “VMB” in the image too which stands for Video Marketing Blaster Pro. So yeah, my point here is:
No one really looks for this keyword on Google or on YouTube, and I could have just as easily uploaded my own stuff for the same keyword and also got ranked high, but there’s just no point in that, because NO one is looking for this.
2) Let’s take an actual YouTube review of this program.
I needed to see some unbiased proof of this software working, so I took to YouTube itself to see what others were saying. Now I know how to spot fake reviews and/or those which are misleading, so I sifted through those and found a decent one, this one.
The guy did a good job, but unfortunately, it didn’t actually make Video Marketing Blaster Pro any more worth recommending. Allow me to explain why:
In that review, he tries to rank for a keyword which actually does get searches on Google (Over a 1,000 a month as based on the same keyword tools I used), and the keyword is:
“Portable air compressors at Walmart”
I was actually surprised to see that it got searches, but hey, that’s how this keyword stuff works. Now while trying to rank for it, the man did showcase how he DID rank on the first page of Google’s search results (when he clicked on videos, not the site results), but then I went to Google itself to see if I could find the same upload. And what happened? I couldn’t find it.
I sifted through at least 50 results, looking for both the review and his YouTube channel and couldn’t find either of these things.
This tells me that he may have ranked high at first, but perhaps it was a personalized result, which usually shows up high, but for an individual, not the general audience and/or he may have been ranked high, for a short period of time, until his upload was overtaken by other channels going for the same keyword and without enough likes, and comments, his upload will be buried somewhere deep in the results and basically this means…
That this is another example of the software not really doing that much. Again, I don’t see how I couldn’t have gotten the same results, from uploading my own video for the same keyword without using this software, but I’d probably also have my upload buried in the search results. Still, I would have spent $0 to get that result…
3) Another YouTube review proving my point, despite praising the program.
When doing analytical work like this, you have to look at more than just 1 or even 2 cases, so I went and found a third person who reviewed Video Marketing Blaster Pro and he also did a good job, but again, in the end, it just proved my initial point.
Let me explain…
This is the other review I found which is over 20 minutes long. The man in this case had a YouTube upload and was trying to rank it for this following keyword:
“How to make better videos on YouTube”.
And he said that he couldn’t rank high for that on (understandable), so he attempted to use VMB to help boost it up and here’s what happened:
He used that software to get more keywords, and it basically added to his existing upload, added more keywords, many of which are low competition and he changed his title. Now the title of his video (and target keyword) was:
“How to make better videos on YouTube (and get more views).”
Notice what changed: The add on to the original keyword is “and get more views” WITH parenthesis over it, which also is important. He made those edits to his existing video, then did another search on YouTube for the whole NEW, and long keyword and wouldn’t you know it. Now he ranks on the first page.
Great right? No. This is nonsense in my opinion and here’s why:
His original ranking for the first keyword is still nowhere to be found (the one that actually gets searches!) and his new, longer keyword is the one that NO one types in to YouTube (so it doesn’t matter if it’s on the first page), so the result is that this update will not provide him with anymore views.
Want proof? I did a search for the keyword “How to make better videos on YouTube” and looked for his video SPECIFICALLY by doing a search for his channel name, which is actually his full name.
Guess what? I couldn’t find it:
The point of all 3 of these studies of VMB:
Again, these examples are of people titling their uploads with a long keyword that no one types and because there’s no keyword competition for them, so OF COURSE they will rank high, but to say that this software is some magic tool for getting high ranking YouTube videos is just a double statement, because yes it will do it, but from what I saw, it will do it for keywords you’ll get little or no views for, that’s the main point.
Final Rating: Video Marketing Blaster Pro
3 out of 10 stars. Like I said I don’t think it’s a scam but if there was ANY proof that this software actually helps you rank high on YouTube for actual, highly searched keywords, I would have found it. I found 0 evidence of that. The “good reviews” for VMB that I found don’t actually understand YouTube ranking based on what I saw. And anything this software helps you rank for, doesn’t matter because those keywords have little/no searches (and I proved it).
The only decent stuff I saw was that this tool gives you competition numbers for what I can only assume is YouTube competition, so choosing the low competition terms and then making your videos have those titles might actually help.
That proof that I know about YouTube ranking and making money there:
I’ve promised to show you my personal proof that I understand YouTube ranking and making money from it, and here are my YouTube case studies that show this.
My final thoughts: Let me come clean about my experiences with YouTube:
Again, I’m not going to profess to be some genius at viral YouTube marketing. BUT I have made $10,000’s in making simple videos.
I don’t aim for making them viral, I simply do product reviews that are popular and that gets me the sales. Here is a personal YouTube video tutorial for beginners where I explain this. What I do know about a lot is Google rankings and actually getting high rankings for some serious keywords, and that’s what I do today.
Let me quickly segway into something you can use right away:
For general high website rankings, and getting traffic from Google and YouTube, you should look into Wealthy Affiliate. Now back to the topic…
The rules for ranking for high volume keywords are somewhat similar with YouTube and Google, that being:
- Pick a low competition keyword.
- Write an awesome title.
- Get likes and comments and the more views you get…
- The more you’ll appear for the keyword on YouTube.
- With Google, it’s similar, but there’s other parameters.
What IS absolutely the same on both platforms is that if you try to target a very long keyword that gets no searches, you WILL get ranked on the first page results, both for YouTube AND Google, but what’s the point? No one will find your content anyway, so I can definitely go around claiming I know how to rank high on YouTube and Google, but it’s a deceptive statement.
So overall, I don’t believe in VMB at all, there has been 0 evidence this tool will rank you for (what is truly important) highly searches keywords on YouTube. I saw absolutely no evidence of that, and I’d love to hear if you believe differently and can prove it. Until that happens, VMB will NOT get my recommendation.
