1. Let YouTube guide you

Remember that YouTube has a complete track of your previous activities on the website. This means that it knows what kind of videos you usually like to watch.

This, combined with the ‘most-searched for’ videos on those keywords will present to you a pretty accurate list of suggestions. Chances are, you will find what you are looking for through these YouTube suggestions.

2. Use YouTube Filters

Filters are a great way to narrow down on your search results. As soon as you make a search, a Filter option on the top of the result column will let you put in advanced filters on your search.

3. Use + and – in your search results

These are called the Boolean operators. YouTube search allows you to add and subtract keywords from your search using the + and – symbols respectively. This is especially handy when the keywords you are using have an exact match with something else on the internet world.

4. Force exact match using “ ”

To restrict the search results to the exact same keyword, you can use double inverted commas around the keyword. This will make YouTube look for the exact same word in the title or the description of the video.

5. Use ‘intitle’ to find keywords in video title

If in case you remember a few words from the title of the video that you had watched earlier or can make a wild guess about it, ‘intitle’ comes in quite handy.

The string command will give preference to search results that have the keywords that you have placed after the command, in its title rather than the description. Limited but useful results can be garnered out of this simple trick.
