    Hi there,

    Is it better to name a video with SEO optimization or in a somewhat clever way in the hopes of making more viral (e.g. if it's a funny commercial name it somthing like "funny commercial" instead?)

    Thanks :)

    I think if you do a search for "funny commercial" you'll see that's unlikely to get you a lot of click-throughs:

    Results 1 - 10 of about 1,260,000 for "funny commercial".

    On the other hand, just adding in random "SEO optimization" keywords may get you penalized. My advice is to use a title (and filename) that is descriptive of the content of the video.

    Ideally you want to do both - name it right for search engines as well as people.

    So if it's a funny video about green widgets you name it funny green widget video.
    Then it has your main keywords and something to get click-throughs too.
