    I am currently not ranking my blog homepage for anything. It's optimised for the keywords: photoshop tutorials and photography tips. I want to find a related long tail keyword with 5000-10000 monthly searches. But it has to be rank able. If you need to know my site pm me.

    I know I could do this myself, but I have never done this so if someone could help that would be great!

    That looks like a really hard one to rank for.

    This is the tool I use to find long-tail keywords. IMHO, it's probably the best keyword tool out there right now...even though most people have never heard of it....

    Just do a google search for "keyword strategy"

    Well, your site is in the index? You tried to look at your domain in semrush? What does it show?

    Here are the 5 steps that I take in order to find long tail keywords:

    1. I start with Google Keyword External. The first search is just using single words. For example for my market I start with words like: seo, keyword, keywords, content and so on. Is very important to let the tool suggest related terms that people are searching. These terms are really the starting point of my search. The same method can be applied using Google Sktool. I choose one main keyword and then go to step 2.

    2. I perform a search on Google for that main keyword. The things that I pay attention are the general competition and title competition. These numbers play an important role in deciding if a keyword is worth targeting or not. So write this down: you'll have to compare it with the data for the long tail keywords.

    3. I use the Wonder Wheel to see what other keywords people searched after the main keyword. Watch the competition and when you find something under 1 million or maximum 2 million you can go for it. Write it down.

    4. I also use Related Searches to see what the search engine says that are the related keywords other people searched (these searches are not necessarily performed after searching for your keyword). Again look at the competition and make your own decision: is this keyword relevant and also have a decent competition.

    5. I return to Google Keyword External Tool with the long tail keywords that I found. Keep in mind that these keywords were definitely searched by someone but this is not enough. So, you're checking to see if the tool says it has Not Enough Data or shows you a number. Depending on your market you choose to target a long tail keyword or not. Sometimes a search volume of 100/month can be enough, other times you'll need a few thousands. It's relative and depends on the overall search volume trends from your market.
