    If I have a long KW phrase that I want to rank for (say 9 words, see below)(BTW I don' t eat Iguana, but I needed an example, no offense intended to Iguana lovers)

    the best way to eat iguana jerky while hiking

    normally we don't make an entire sentence a KW phrase. It was suggested that I should break it up.

    What would that look like?

    KW phrase 1 - the best way to eat
    KW phrase 2 - eat iguana jerky
    KW phrase 3 - while hiking

    and then spread that out over a few different links in articles and posts that are off site

    OR would it look like

    KW phrase 1 - the best way to eat iguana
    KW phrase 2 - what to eat while hiking
    KW phrase 3 - eat iguana jerky
    (I like this way, but I've been wrong before)


    I would couple that with some on site seo that shows that exact keyword and then maybe the same words sprinkled all around throughout the article.

    Normally I target my posts for multiple keywords. So I might have that exact phrase along with 2 or 3 other KW phrases that are exact and let the LSI do the rest.

    Iguana jerky... I've had alligator and kangaroo jerky before, but not iguana jerky. :)

    Anyway, when someone is searching for the key phrase, "the best way to eat iguana jerky while hiking", they want to find results with the following keywords:
    • Iguana jerky
    • Hiking
    • Best (you can probably omit this one if your site is about how much of an expert you are at eating while hiking)
    While you can probably get away with using the whole key phrase as a primary keyword (despite the stop words and length issue), you should be able to truncate it to "eat iguana jerky while hiking" and subsequently title your article as "This is how I eat iguana jerky while hiking".

    If you're still not sure, then another trick is to search for similar long-tail keywords and see what the top 5 results are doing to rank for that keyword.
