    Hello,

    I'm checking a long tail keyword, or a keyword I didn't originally find from a keyword tool.


    what does it mean if the keyword doesn't pull any searches in googles keyword tool or does not give suggestions on the bottom of a google search.

    Is it still something to consider using or would I be better off spending time on another keyword

    You can still use it if the short tail has plenty of searches. Best bet is to write a long article and use multiple long tails. You'll end up with related search queries that you've never even thought of start to show up.

    Yeah, try reducing it's length and see the searches... and do more research and see if people are using it in their discussions - on forums and yahoo groups. If it is, then you should use it as a keyword but don't try to build a site that focuses on it only

    You need keywords and phrases with good search volumes, regardless of the number of words contained.
