    What do you guys think about 50+ articles, each capturing a long tail keyword to bring organic traffic to the website.

    I've read this is a good approach.

    Is it worth it, what would the cut off be, <100 searches a month?

    Might be worth it. I would rather build some links to the exact product pages where the potential client could take action...

    It can work but I thing you will get better result with some blog comments blasts.

    Usually the providers of this kind of services offer unlimited kw and url so you can use multiple ulr per order and also add some anchor variation to your backlinks.

    I think this will be a good idea. My only concern is doing SEO for those 50 pages will be a huge task.

    In my opinion, with long tail you have to work in bulk (50 articles, does that mean you are targetting 50 keywords/pages?) I worked for an online shop that sold over 15 000 different products and we did it like this (about 8 people):

    Every week, improve 30 most viewed pages:
    improve descriptions, photos, keyword research, add cross selling, upselling, drop 1-2 product reviews, build 2-3 links.

    Over 2-3 months, it paid off pretty well, but we were targetting our most viewed/easy keywords because doing it all was just a no no.

    By definition, long tail means you are trying to rank for lots and lots of (usually non-competitive or long) keywords. Link blasting can also be a great solution as long as you do it reasonably and carefully, but anything manual will require a couple of employees or freelancers.

    Contents maybe king, but its needs backlinks to even rank more. Contents alone will do nominal traffic unless its has no competition at all and has a lot of searches on its keywords.
