If you want to write an seo article in this recent age targeting long tail keyword is the best practise. Long tail keyword eliminates high competition and enable your post to rank faster in google. Also more long tail keyword articles in ur blog brings more organic traffic.
An example:
normal keyword: fitness trainer
long tail keywords: fitness trainer for pregnant women, fitness trainer for fat pregnant women etc.

Meanwhile adult tube sites dont need seo and articles. Start making money from day 1, check my signature for more info.

We use keywords to search for things on Google or online. We can type in ,"weight loss" if we want to lose weight.

So , weight loss" is our keyword

If you want to drive traffic to your articles, you insert the keywords, "weight loss" into them a number of times hoping google picks them up and sends traffic to your articles or blog.

However, "weight loss" keywords is highly competitive and likelihood of your post ranking highly for that keyword is next to zero. The blog post may come up page 55 in google search or even page 2000.

Because of this, you decide to target less competitive keywords and some of the beat are long tail keywords

For example, you find out there are 240 searches monthly on, "how black women over 40 years can loose weight"

You find out competition for this is very small

You now decide to insert that long keywords into your articles.

This will most likely generate traffic as your post will have high rankings in Google and you may even be on page 1 on Google

This is just the basics.

I've never minded this keyword of a thing when writing articles whether long tail or short tail, and the reality is that once your article is relevant it will rank on Google. grin
Re: What are Long Tail Keywords And What are The Benefits? by divicoded: 7:22am On May 07
This is pure rubbish! There is absolutely no information on this!

How on earth is this on the front page?

Longtail keyword is dead forever. Rankbrain has taken over that. Google understands what you are looking for, hence it brings it out through the help of rankbrain.

What you can only have is medium tail keyword - 2 to 4 words!

Stay updated and stop living in the past!!

Re: What are Long Tail Keywords And What are The Benefits? by miracle4(m): 7:25am On May 07
Short tail: one, two or three max. No of words.

Long tail: three or more words keyword.

Eg: best hotel in Lagos Island, buy shawarma in Lagos Island instead of "buy shawarma".

They help in ranking by being easily ranked as less number of persons are competing for it.

In short, a long tail keyword is more like sentence/phrase which is more effective and easy to rank the other keywords

Nigerian bloggers are amazing. Imagine the large number of bloggers on this forum and just a few have a little idea of what long tail keywords are.

It's really amazing how people venture into blogging thinking it's easy to make it not knowing that it involves lots of work and learning.

Anyways long tail keyword is more about being more specific. For instance "automatic wristwatch" is a keyword but if the niche is already saturated then you can try a long tail keyword like "automatic wristwatch for men" or "automatic wristwatch for women" by including men or women, you've created a new, focused niche for yourself, so that when people comes to your blog, they find specialized information that fits that particular group.

Long tail keyword is pretty lucrative if you able to find a good one but it's very limiting and in some cases you may not find much topics to write about.

You should go for it, when your chosen niche is already saturated and you're sure you can get a lot of topics to talk about.

I don't know if you've visited elnacain.com but that's an example of a long tail keyword blog. She's focused on freelance writing but while everyone is talking about "freelance writing on Fiverr and co" , she's focused on "freelance writing by pitching cold emails" and she's really getting good followership. I even followed her but after a few weeks I realized she's just saying the same thing over and over again. That's the limiting factor of long tail keywords.

Hope this helps.

Let's say you want to sell shoes from your website. Instead of focusing on the keyword "shoes", you utilize a long tail keyword like "casual shoes for men during summer."
That way you are more focused and Google sends you targeted traffic that converts to sales.

People are even using this forum to advertise their work. They take time to write stuffs with long tail keywords. You think they are advertising for people here, but they are actually targeting people who go to google. When you search for something on google, it brings the article they have here up, you open and contact them. Another way of advertising...
