How To Get On TikTok’s For You Page – 3 Tips For 2021

TikTok is the world's most addictive video app that leaves you craving more. It's the fun-sized chocolate bar of social media, and the goal is to end up on the TikTok For You Page, increase your TikTok followers, and go viral.
Since it's a relatively new app, videos could suddenly attract an astounding amount of attention, and everyday accounts "blow up." If you're wondering how to get views on TikTok, we'll tell you everything you need to know about the app, the algorithm, and creating content.
**How the TikTok For You Page works (H3)**
The TikTok For You Page, or FYP for short, is a curated feed of videos selected by TikTok. The algorithm deems these videos exciting and engaging and feeds them to people worldwide.
To understand how to get views, you must first learn how the TikTok algorithm works.
*Stage 1:** TikTok shows your video 100 people and assesses its performance.
*Stage 2:** TikTok shows your video 1000 people and assesses its performance.
*Stage 3:** TikTok shows your video to 10,000 people and assesses its performance.
*Stage 4:** TikTok shows your video to 100,000 people and assesses its performance.
Many factors determine if your video is successful such as watch times and engagement. It's simple, if your video does well in one stage, TikTok shows it to more people and assesses performance in the following stage. So how do you ensure success in each step and get on the TikTok For You Page?
**How to get on the TikTok For You Page (FYP)**
**Create short videos**
If you want to increase your TikTok followers and make it onto the TikTok For You Page, short videos are the way to go. Short videos rule TikTok, and with attention spans waning, the optimum length of a video is 8-12 seconds. Creating quick video content means people are more likely to watch it through to the end – something the TikTok algorithm favors.
**Make video replies**
Replying to comments with the video reply feature is an incredibly successful engagement tactic. Here you can record a video with the comment in question pinned to the top. You get to engage with your audience and directly answer questions or address someone's thoughts. It's like you're starting a conversation, and TikTok loves it. Use this method to increase your TikTok followers and get on the TikTok For You Page.
**Use trending sounds**
People want to hear music they are familiar with and the music they love. If your video has a trending or popular song, the watch time is more likely to be longer – meaning it will perform better with the algorithm. If you wonder how to get views on TikTok and how to get on the TikTok For You Page, music is the way.

What is the ‘For You Page’ (FYP)?
When you open the TikTok app, the For You Page is the first thing you see. It’s an infinite stream of content that users can scroll through. Not only is this where you can view all of the great content that TikTok has to offer, but it serves a fundamental purpose for the TikTok algorithm. The For You Page is designed for continuous improvement. Watching and interacting with videos learns from your behavior and changes what content you see based on your activity.
How the TikTok Algorithm Works
User Interactions is an essential factor that determines what users see on their For You Page. The algorithm tracks what videos you like and share, which accounts you follow, and what comments you post. This is how TikTok learns what types of content you like or dislike.
The algorithm also examines video attributes, including video length, captions, sounds, stickers, and hashtags. This information helps determine if the content aligns with your preferences and interests.
Device settings also impact what shows up on your For You Page. However, TikTok has confirmed that this only has a small impact. Settings such as language preferences and home country settings could influence FYP content.
One thing to note is that the TikTok algorithm does not prioritize content creators with many followers. This is a nice feature that gives new content creators a better chance of getting For You Page exposure.

3. Use Hashtags Properly
Hashtags are a useful tool that helps users find content that is relevant to their interests. How you use hashtags in your videos can improve your chances of getting on the For You Page. Look for hashtags that are both popular and relevant to your video. Trying to use hashtags that are popular but not relevant could backfire and result in fewer views.
4. Interact with Your Viewers
The more engagement your video gets, the more likely you will end up on the For You Page. Focus on creating content that encourages engagement through comments, likes, and follows. Also, be active in the comment section of your videos by liking comments and responding to questions. The more you interact with your viewers, the more they will interact with your video in return.
