Add Title and Description

Titles are a very important tool to get viewers to click and watch your video,  while your video description helps YouTube in understanding all information about it. YouTube cannot extract information from the video itself, so it gets info from the texts you write on the description area.

Important: Do not forget to include a link to your WordPress site or a link to your article that is related to the video.
