GROUP SEO VIDEO PROJECT (40 points)

The objective of this assignment is to give you experience with the various aspects of search
engine optimization, including keyword research and content optimization, by creating a video
and optimizing it for YouTube. Publish your group’s SEO Video on YouTube before class on the
due date, and submit the Video SEO Report (Word file) through your instructor’s preferred
method before class on the due date.

Idea Generation / Keyword Research

1. Topic: Pick a general topic that interests you. Determine 2 subtopics that will guide your
keyword research, as if you were making 2 different videos (more specific topics are
usually better).
Example topic: Microphone equipment, Subtopics: (1) home studio microphone kits, (2)
cheap mics for podcasting, (3) USB microphone settings. Other general subtopic ideas:
Tutorials, Reviews, Comparisons (A vs. B), Questions (answered in the video), Topic
Explanations. Note: Do not use the same topic or subtopics as another group member.
The idea is that you are each coming up with different video ideas that interest you
personally.

2. Keywords. Each group member will create a small set of keyword research for both of
their subtopics. Identify 3 keywords (phrases) for each subtopic that have roughly the
same meaning, but with different phrasing. Each keyword must be one that people
actually search—it should appear as an autocomplete suggestion as you begin to type it
in YouTube’s search box. Add these keywords to a table, like the example below.

3. Demand: Use a keyword tool (SEMRush, Ubersuggest.org, Searchvolume.io) to check the
actual monthly search volume for each keyword. If a keyword passes the autosuggest
test in #1, but doesn’t show search volume in #2, this is OK—it just means <10 searches
per month.

4. Competition: Search for each keyword phrase in YouTube to check the competition level,
noting whether existing videos cover your same topic and how frequently the exact
keyword appears in titles and descriptions. Generally, low competition means very few
videos use your keyword perfectly in the title or description, and few videos cover the
same topic. High competition means several videos use your exact keyword, and there
are many videos covering the same specific topic.

5. After each group member has performed their keyword research independently (3 group
members should have 6 total subtopics/sets of keyword research), bring your ideas
together to pick 1 subtopic for your group video. (You will include all group member
keyword research in the final report.)

Group SEO Video
1. Primary keyword: After identifying the subtopic for your group video, you should pick

one low-competition keyword from the keywords for that subtopic as your primary
keyword.

2. Video production: The video must be (A) less than 3 minutes (editing good, but not
required), and (B) use good production (stable image, good lighting and sound, good
energy/pacing). You are not required to film yourselves, but each group member should
assist in some way. You can add images or overlay text, but the video should (C) verbally
include the 3 retention principles from the Viewer Retention Video Tutorial here:
(begin with the topic, jump fairly
quickly into the content, use an open loop– i.e., generate curiosity by previewing
something coming later in the video). (D) The video should incorporate some
engagement-driving CTA at the end. (E) Create a custom thumbnail for the video to
attract attention (unlock this capability by going to Youtube.com/verify). Don’t just use a
still frame from the video.
Video editing apps: iMovie, Apple Clips, Adobe Premiere Rush (avoid anything that
leaves a watermark).

3. SEO: The video elements (video title and description) should be perfectly optimized for
your primary keyword phrase. If possible, make your title more interesting-sounding than
other videos that appear for the search (while maintaining perfect SEO). Naturally
incorporate related words and synonyms into the description for more optimization
potential. Also use relevant keywords in the video tags.

4. Publication and engagement: Publish your video before class on the due date. For full
engagement credit, coordinate so that your video can get 10 likes and 5 comments
within 24 hours of publication. (Keep in mind that YouTube detects and rewards viewer
retention)
