How long tail keywords help?

Discussion in 'Search Engine Optimization' started by acetz, Oct 3, 2012.

    Guys, I can very well distinguish long tail and short tail keywords but really wanted to know how long tail keywords can get more traffic to the website than short tail one. Is there any specific idea to get higher ranking for long tail keywords?
    SEMrush
    Thanks in advance .

    Long tail keywords have low competition comparing with short phrase keywords, that's why its easy to rank for. Another one long tail keywords contain short phrase keyword, so there have chance that your site also rank for short phrase keyword in search engines. So long tail keywords are the best option to rank faster in search engines.

    Very good question. Let me explain. Lets take a person as an user who is searching for a product might be a mobile. In viewing his point of view, he is about to search exactly what is expecting. For example, he need a mobile with 5 mega pixel camera in specific location. his query might be,

    Nokia mobile with 5 mega pixel camera in India.

    Here brand name is specified with its mega pixel property and Specific area.

    This is what we called long tail keyword, Whenever it exceeds two or three keywords with more specifically, its called as Long tail keyword. The reason why Long tail keyword is getting so much importance is, these keywords has not much competition with high local monthly searches. As thinking from users point of view, the long tail keywords are best because no one is going to enter the keyword only for what we are promoting.

    Long tail keywords are often worth the research effort precisely because the competition isn’t focusing on them. And lead to a higher click-through rate, because there are some entries on the SERP. Generic phrases are more likely to let you create a general landing page.

    Only 2- 3 words keywords provide more traffic neither long tail nor shot. Getting rank for Long Tail Keywords is easy so getting traffic is also easy.

    Long tail keywords are narrow, they are less competitive and its easy to optimize. Long tail keywords mean when you use long keywords for example (Apple 8 GB ipod). It is easy to rank long tail keyword rather than short tail keyword.

    There is such low competition with long-tail that you can write an article/blog post or a short page and you'll have it - with a decent strength website!
