[GUIDE] How to Get on the “ForYou” Page on TikTok in 2020

Hello everyone, Social Media Fellow is back with another interesting answer for a very commons question, how to get on the “For you” page on TikTok?

To Get on the ForYou Page on Tiktok, create an interesting video and ask some questions or narrate them a story. In this way, they will watch the whole video and your TikTok video will be on the fyp page. Always Remember, Make Videos To Engage Audience.

Being asked so many times, I finally decided to share the algorithm that works behind the scenes and chooses the posts to show on the “For You” section. This post is a little bit in detail, so make sure to go through carefully and try to understand most of the things.

But before that, let’s talk about what is this “For You” page?

What is the “For You” Page on TikTok?

The “For You” page is the mysterious landing page that is seen when a user opens the app. This page is populated by TikTok with some dark algorithms that are only bounded inside the company.

Users can watch all the recommended videos on the “For You” page and it is similar to the Instagram Explore page. But there is one main difference. As Instagram users are greeted by the content being published by the people they are following, TikTok users are greeted in some other way.

Instead of getting content from the following, TikTok shows them other user’s content that they might like. So, TikTok keeps the following content secondary.

As this “For you” page is a great way to get more fans and likes, everyone is trying to come on this page. In order to get on the page, you simply have to apply some rules on all your posts. Let’s see what are they.

How to Get on the “ForYou” Page on TikTok?

Here are the things you need to apply in order to get on the “For You” page or FYP page on TikTok.

Watch and Observe the TikTok’s For You Page

The first thing you need to do is to observe and keep an eye on the “For You” page. Look for the type of content which is going viral and the hashtags they are using.

After observing for sometimes, write down the trending video ideas and the hashtags they are using. That’s it. Start making videos on those topics and use the same hashtags.

You will suddenly notice an increase in video likes and views. So, the basic idea behind this is:

“To create the content similar to what you see on your ‘For You’ section”.

Upload 4-5 Videos every day with the relevant hashtags

Keep your profile active with MINIMUM of 4-5 videos per day. I said minimum and there is no limit for the maximum. The reason behind this is to keeps your profile active in the eyes of TikTok and in return, they will put your videos on the “for you” page.

Here is the detailed explanation for this:

TikTok shows some batch of videos to other users through their “For You” section. If the response is good on videos, for e.g people start liking, commenting on it, TikTok makes it viral. But not all videos are being liked by everyone all the time. So, to increase the chances of getting on the “For You” page, create and post as many videos as you can.

Create Attention-Grabbing Videos

Have you ever noticed that most of the viral or trending videos you saw on TikTok, they have something to grab your attention? These videos use the attractive title, trending music and challenges.

Just do exactly the same! Your main concern should be to figure out how to grab the user’s attention so that they watch the whole video and should not scroll down early.

Once you are able to grab the attention, TikTok will automatically see that your video watch time is increasing and they will try to send posts to more people using their “For You” page section.

Like, Share, Comment and Follow a lot!

I saw many people creating TikTok content daily, but still don’t get a good response, why? The answer is simple, they don’t engage themself in the community.

TikTok is a community and they want people to be very active. The best solution for this is to comment on other’s videos, like them, reply to comments on your videos, share them, go live more frequently, etc.

Those were the core important things you HAVE TO apply to get yourself on the “For You” page and get popular. But, there are some small things that most people forget. Let’s check them out.

Make sure to set your account to Public

This is very important! You will not get any likes and followers if your account is set to Private. Make sure to set your account to “Public” in order to get seen by people.

Also, as seen in the picture above, make sure the option “Allow others to find me” is enabled.

Use Trending Music in your Videos

Videos using trending music tend to perform a way better than other videos.

Many of you will ask this question now, how to find out which music is trending or not? The answer is simple, there are two ways to find our trending music on TikTok.

First, Observe the “For you” page videos and use the music of the videos which have the most likes. In this way, you are putting yourself in the category where there are high chances of being getting viral and famous.

Second, go to this website and check out the videos. This page has all the trending videos on TikTok. Now what? Go and grab the music and start making your own!

Use #ForYou hashtag a lot!

While browsing the Foryou page on TikTok, I realized one thing, every video on that page has #ForYou and #trending hashtag. I don’t know whether it will increase your chances of getting on to the For you” page or not, but it’s worth adding in your description.

Moreover, it is a popular and trending hashtag. So, use it as much as you can!

What happens if you get on the “For You” Page on TikTok?

Most people on the TikTok have a dream to get famous and get a lot of followers. If you are one of them, then this post would be the most important part of that dream.
