As loyal Paladin blog readers know, our friends at TubeBuddy have an exciting new feature set called Launch Pad that codifies best practices in video optimization and makes them easy to review and implement. This TubeBuddy tech is incredibly useful for individual creators, and for the MCNs who subscribe to our enterprise version of TubeBuddy for the benefit of their partners.
We’re highlighting a new Launch Pad feature each week – this time it’s the Best Practice Audit. If you missed the previous installment, learn more about the Upload Checklist here.

Best Practice Audit
At TubeBuddy, we’re all about automation and saving you time. But – we also want to make sure you’re following YouTube’s optimization guidelines, giving yourself the best chance of success. Our Best Practice Audit merges these two goals, giving you a way to programmatically validate your video metadata and quickly fix any issues found.
Users can kick off a Best Practice Audit from the Upload page or My Videos page on YouTube. The audit process scans the video title, description, tags, thumbnail, cards, annotations and more to ensure that they are properly applied to the video based on the YouTube Creator Academy and YouTube Creator Playbook guidelines. If any issues are found, the user is notified and TubeBuddy provides a simple way to fix the problem.
Enterprise customers using TubeBuddy can enable Active Video Monitoring for the Best Practice Audit. With Active Monitoring enabled, TubeBuddy will automatically monitor your channels for new uploads, process videos when they are found, and email you the results if problems are found.
For a complete walk-through on getting started with the Best Practice Audit, please check out the following video:
