There are no losers just people who quit

You never lose if you learn a lesson.In every field there are winners and losers. If you learn from mistakes you are moving forward every time you try. If you try hard enough you will get there. Now straight to the point. This post is about long tail keywords. Long keywords hold most of the traffic


The Search Demand Curve

If you are new to keyword research and need Understanding the Long Tail of Keyword Demand visit
SEOMoz Guide

People are becoming more search savvy and long tail traffic is increasing last few years. Most SEOs know bold search terms like "Books" "Music" etc do not convert well.


Problem 1
How to find which long tail keywords to choose.

This one is easy. Just pick you niche and make a list with 10 of the largest websites. After that just sign with Semrush.com (Paid) and load every website. Than export their keywords in excel files and sort them by monthly searches. Now start looking in keywords with 1600-5000 monthly searches range.

Problem 2
How to choose which long tail keywords are the best?

While I will give you the best automated suggestions I know I prefer to do this manually for any of website I launch. It is extremely time consuming but very rewarding. For example it could take me a week to choose 50-100 keywords with around 1600-5000 monthly searches from the lists.
The first step and most important step is done. This 50-100 keywords are enough to generate huge amounts of traffic. From my expirience 30-150 000 unique visitors monthly.

If you are short of time or skills which long tail keywords to pick just use automatic tools like:
Marketing Samurai / seoprofiler.com or search yourself for one.


Important factors in keyword research.

Search Trends - Check if monthly searches are decreasing
Brands in Top 3 - just skip these niches.
Names - Key-phrases which do not include generic keywords (usually names) are easier to rank
Exact-match domains in top 5 - Good sign

And if you already have a website and some traffic you should squeeze the maximum out of it.

You need
webmaster tools and Google Analitycs installed.


Export all keywords you got traffic from WM tools and G Analitycs and load them all in
keyword tool. It handle max to 2500 keywords at once. Mark Exact match on the left.

Again look in 1600-5000 range. Pick you keywords and load them in decent keyword tracker.

If you have some keywords ranking in top 50-100 you have a chance to rank them quickly in a few weeks. You just need more content and a few strong quality backlinks.

Benefits form starting a project with long tail keywords in certain niche.

You can rank quickly and get some traffic-profit
The traffic will help you for overall rankings
You are creating related content for larger keywords in the niche.
You get natural social signals which also helps
for overall rankings
You do not put all eggs in one basket. Your profits are less likely to drop
significantly
Soon or later your ranking for bigger keywords in the niche will improve

Good share mate and you made a good point when you said "People are becoming more search savvy and long tail traffic is increasing last few years"
Yes they have become smart and they know their way around to reach exactly what they are looking for; in a single search. I am on my own journey towards building long tail empire. Bit by bit.

thanks for the info. I have a question though. I know in keyword search you should look for the lowest competition. but if the number of searches could be a million, is that still safe?

lastly if I was to target medium to high competition keywords how would I get ranked to the top, what would I need to do?

Are this 50-100 kw's all from the same niche? Is it ok to make a website around few totally different niches?
Thx

Thx for replying...
Have you tried CPA offers or CB instead of adsense? Also do you build list?

You should consider changing the title.

The method might be useful but calling people losers won't get you people clicking on the thread.

Not many people will read that and think to themselves "hey I'm a loser.... this was exactly what I was looking for". :)

Just some friendly copy advice.

I will if I can:). I wrote it in a few minutes and decided to provoke the people but it was a mistake.
