If I say, there are two types of keyword and one of them is long tail keywords, do not get shocked! Yes, rather there are two types of perfect keywords. One is for big business and the other one is for small one. If you observe, you can see that not all our keyword phrase that we search for are not of same length. Some are two-word keywords, and some are four word or more. The keywords that are more than three words and more specific are known as long tail keywords.

Such keywords are very specific search terms that include three or more search term. Most of the time, it contains a seed keyword having a length of one or two words.

For example,

Seed Keyword: “fat  loss”

Long tail Keyword: fat loss program for busy men”,” fat loss workout for teens” etc.

As I mentioned before, Long tail keywords are more specific; hence, it brings you more and more conversion-friendly traffic.

What are the Benefits of Such Keywords?

  • Quality Traffic and better conversion rate


As long tail keywords are highly targeted, you will get visitors that are more qualified. For example, enhancing the rank for “cheap blue wooden sunglasses” will get more relevant visitors than content ranking for “sunglasses”.  Moreover, as it is more relevant to the traffic, a greater portion of visitor will ultimately purchase those sunglasses.

  • Less competitive


Not anyone looking for “cheap blue  wooden sunglasses” is looking for “wooden sunglasses”. Not everyone searching for “wooden sunglasses” is looking for “Cheap blue Wooden sunglasses”. To simplify, the deeper you dive in the niche to target, the better competitive it is.
