Thanks, but if you write how to use them, the guild will be complete as the title says. E.g. Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI) Optimization - the real one wich using long tail keywords (but not synonyms as the post in searchengine journal consider).

Also how to understand if some of these long tail keyword is really low competitive? There have tons of really low competitive even some tools showing they are hard and have some really hard, when the tools shows they are easy.
One trick from me - check the top 10 competitors of the main keyword e.g. "running shoes" , than check the top 10 competition for the long tail keyword you target e.g. "what are the best long distance running shoes" - if none of the competitors for the main keyword are ranked for that long tail, means the long tail is really low competitive (will not go deep in explanation for this).
 
@naskootbg:
I agree!
I didn't put how to use them. Maybe soon i will put the details about it.
And thank you for putting up your thought and the trick you've mentioned.
 
that is first step to find long tail kws, but you can't say those long tail kws have low competition as well, for that you have to check them manually like my friend told you above but it's better to check them via paid tool as well and then after checking them via paid tools and manually you can look into that statistic and choose the really low competition long tail kws as your main kws.
 
Some long tail may have great traffic but not all long tail keyword should have. So, speaking in general long tail said to be low traffic.
