Tag your location on videos and live streams

Tagging your location on your videos and live streams lets viewers find your videos by that location. They can also see other videos that were tagged in the same area.

You can see tagged locations on the watch page for any of your videos. Viewers will see the tag on any of your public, unlisted, or private videos you share with them. Viewers can click Location to search for public videos from the same location.
